Do you\nknow what pisses me off the most about people? Other than the fact that they\nexist. \n\n\n\nThey\nwon\u2019t stop talking about irrelevant stuff that has nothing to do with what the\nissue at hand is. Like how does it matter to you if Benicio Bryant is a boy or\ngirl. Will you vote for him more or less because he is a boy? \n\n\n\nYes, he is a boy. \n\n\n\n\nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=hKLOPrXrUUk\nBenicio Bryant might be a shy 14-year-old but watch him kill it on AGT's stage.\n\n\n\nThe amount\nof people who have addressed him as a girl is annoying. The amount of people\nthat have searched about his gender and gender identity is disgusting. Why are\nwe as a society obsessed with labeling people into cookie cutter boxes of blue\nand pink? \n\n\n\nWHY DOES BENICIO BRYANT'S GENDER IDENTITY MATTER SO MUCH? \n\n\n\nReddit is obsessed with discussing Benicio Bryant\u2019s identity and more than 5000 people have searched the same on Google. \n\n\n\n\nhttps:\/\/www.reddit.com\/r\/agt\/comments\/cwdbe1\/today_for_the_first_time_i_learned_that_benicio\/\n\n\n\n\nPeople are defending him for being gender fluid, which in an ideal world is supportive and sweet but what if he is not? What if Benicio Bryant is not gender fluid and he see\u2019s these well meaning comments and starts to question himself? \n\n\n\nWhat if\nhe is just a boy who hasn\u2019t hit puberty yet? We bullied Justin Bieber for years\ncalling him a girl because he was young and sweet and his body just hadn\u2019t matured\nat that time. Is Benicio Bryant headed for the same dreaded future?\n\n\n\nI am\nscared and concerned at people trying to define this young man, yes, a man because\nthat is all he has asked us to call him now. Which is completely okay. You know\nwhy? \n\n\n\nBecause\nwe will accept him as he is and, in the future, if and when, he wants to be\naddressed by some other pronoun or wants the world to look at him differently,\nwe will do the same. \n\n\n\nWe will listen to him and call him what he wants us to call him because every human being in this world deserves that dignity. \n\n\n\nAnd to all\nthe people who are either confused about his gender identity or want to comment\non his looks\/dressing style\/voice, STOP!\n\n\n\nTake a pause and remind yourself that he is 14 years old. Growing up in the spotlight is hard enough. Competing in AGT is hard enough. He doesn\u2019t need internet bullies deciding who or what he should be or not be. \n\n\n\n\nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=NfX1DQcKmEc\nBenicio Bryant's sexuality and gender identity has people talking and they need to stop. His identity is not and should not be a topic of discussion. \n\n\n\nBenicio\nBryant\u2019s Sexuality Is Not an Escape Room \n\n\n\nPeople are assuming his sexuality. They are speculating that he's gay. First of all, it doesn\u2019t matter. That's it. That's my point. \n\n\n\nHe is a\ntalented, sweet and gifted individual who deserves to be left alone. Talk about\nhis song choice, his rhythm, his pitch\u2014not about his sexual preference. HE IS\n14 YEARS OLD. \n\n\n\nIt\nmakes me sick to see the things people are searching for when they look him up and\ncome on guys! \n\n\n\nSeriously.\n\n\n\n\nGet a life.
