Rowan Blanchard Identifies as Queer In Series of Tweets

Rowan Blanchard has labeled herself as queer, in a series of tweets over the weekend.

While chatting with fans over the weekend on Twitter, the 14-year-old actress opened up about her own sexuality.

“In my life – only ever liked boys. However I personally don’t wanna label myself as straight, gay or whateva so I am not gonna give myself labels to stick with – just existing,” Rowan wrote, which sparked fans coming to praise her and yell at her all at once.

When one fan questioned her statement, Rowan added that she was “open to liking any gender in future…is why I identify as queer.”

    Labels herself…….

  • Timothy schafer

    this might hurt her career

    • Gina

      I don’t think so. She says she’s only ever liked boys thus far. If she walked down the street one day hand in hand with a girl, then it might be a different story

      • Timothy schafer

        i wouldnt have thought so ether but the problem is she tweeted it what will the public think. then some one else tweeted it it is a bad joke.
        i do wish her well no one can play riley like she can.

      • Mike1288

        I think it’s going to hurt that she does not ever shut up. No offense but her saying no labels then calling herself queer just makes her sound dumb.

        • Gina

          Fair point.

        • Timothy schafer

          dont destroy her now leave her be i think we should support her she is only 15 she will learn if this is true. i think the responst to rowan is dont do it, she may not understand it yet .

  • Riley DiAdams

    I don’t always label myself but when I don’t I actually do.

  • Dave Mills

    New definition of “queer”:
    “In my life – [I] only ever like boys

  • frank ford

    What an idiot she is.

    • Dave Mills

      She’s just a kid.

      • Mike1288

        A kid who needs to take a step back and realize not to take herself so seriously and be a kid. I have read her open letters and it’s hard to not roll your eyes. She comes off as a pretentious know it all and at 13/14 needs to realize she is nowhere close to figuring it out. Spouting leftist ideals of your parents does not mean you know it.

          (facepalm)

          When I was a kid, I used to be able to induce burping. I would ingest a lot of air, and then I could let out a really loud burp. It was pretty cool.

    • Riley DiAdams

      I thought her statement was weird too, but remember she is still a child.

    adults attacking a teenager on social media in …. 3 …. 2 … 1

    • ZigZagWave

      Oh please, this pretentious brat likes to make strange announcements and comments for attention. Making an asinine statements like this is not “brave”. How about keeping your sexual preference to yourself? Act like a teenager and not trying to act like a pioneer person is “brave”. Her statement of being “queer” made no sense.

  • Poison Ivy

    Why are the parents of this girl not monitoring her social media for statements which may impact her future in a controversial way? Why is the LGBT community not offended by her use of the word “queer” as a description of one’s sexuality? I believe the PC term is “sexually fluid” as per Johnny Depp’s know it all daughter.

    • jo

      i’m not sure, but i think the lgbt uses queer too.

    • 777

      Why is the LGBT community not offended by the fact she think she has a choice in the matter?

      • Riley DiAdams

        exactly. I thought it wasn’t a choice.

    • Riley DiAdams

      according to LGBT world, queer is an umbrella term. But also, according to the LGBT world being gay, trans, queer, etc. is not a choice, and it looks like Rowan is choosing to be queer…

      At least that’s the impression I’m getting.

  • jo

    oh girl, why come out as queer if you’re not one? (at least for the time being). but don’t forget she’s 14 so don’t be harsh on her.
