    Hey Spuds! Hope you’re not too fed up with this by now. I don’t think theres any point in chucking a barrage of hate over this tbh, there’s obviously something going on (trans or not - it’s not up to us to say), and even if there isn’t, it’s a waste of time to just shout without being constructive. What did need to happen though is calling out damaging wording and misinformation.
    Hope you liked the video xx

      Gender identity refers to a personal identification with a particular gender and gender role in society. The term woman has historically been used interchangeably with reference to the female body, though more recently this usage has been viewed as controversial by some feminists.[24]

      There are qualitative analyses that explore and present the representations of gender; however, feminists challenge these dominant ideologies concerning gender roles and biological sex. One's biological sex is directly tied to specific social roles and the expectations. Judith Butler considers the concept of being a woman to have more challenges, owing not only to society's viewing women as a social category but also as a felt sense of self, a culturally conditioned or constructed subjective identity.[25] Social identity refers to the common identification with a collectivity or social category that creates a common culture among participants concerned.[26] According to social identity theory,[27] an important component of the self-concept is derived from memberships in social groups and categories; this is demonstrated by group processes and how inter-group relationships impact significantly on individuals' self perception and behaviors. The groups people belong to therefore provide members with the definition of who they are and how they should behave within their social sphere.[28]

      A protester holding a flyer with the words "Gender is like that old jumper from my cousin. It was given to me and it doesn't fit" at a rally for transgender equality in Washington D.C. in 2013
      Categorizing males and females into social roles creates a problem, because individuals feel they have to be at one end of a linear spectrum and must identify themselves as man or woman, rather than being allowed to choose a section in between.[29] Globally, communities interpret biological differences between men and women to create a set of social expectations that define the behaviors that are "appropriate" for men and women and determine women's and men's different access to rights, resources, power in society and health behaviors.[30] Although the specific nature and degree of these differences vary from one society to the next, they still tend to typically favor men, creating an imbalance in power and gender inequalities within most societies.[31] Many cultures have different systems of norms and beliefs based on gender, but there is no universal standard to a masculine or feminine role across all cultures.[32] Social roles of men and women in relation to each other is based on the cultural norms of that society, which lead to the creation of gender systems. The gender system is the basis of social patterns in many societies, which include the separation of sexes, and the primacy of masculine norms.[31]

      Philosopher Michel Foucault said that as sexual subjects, humans are the object of power, which is not an institution or structure, rather it is a signifier or name attributed to "complex strategical situation".[33] Because of this, "power" is what determines individual attributes, behaviors, etc. and people are a part of an ontologically and epistemologically constructed set of names and labels. For example, being female characterizes one as a woman, and being a woman signifies one as weak, emotional, and irrational, and incapable of actions attributed to a "man". Butler said that gender and sex are more like verbs than nouns. She reasoned that her actions are limited because she is female. "I am not permitted to construct my gender and sex willy-nilly," she said.[25] "[This] is so because gender is politically and therefore socially controlled. Rather than 'woman' being something one is, it is something one does."[25] More recent criticisms of Judith Butler's theories critique her writing for reinforcing the very conventional dichotomies of gender.[34]

      Social assignment and gender fluidity
      See also: Sex assignment
      According to gender theorist Kate Bornstein, gender can have ambiguity and fluidity.[35] There are two contrasting ideas regarding the definition of gender, and the intersection of both of them is definable as below:

      The World Health Organization defines gender as the result of socially constructed ideas about the behavior, actions, and roles a particular sex performs.[3] The beliefs, values and attitude taken up and exhibited by them is as per the agreeable norms of the society and the personal opinions of the person is not taken into the primary consideration of assignment of gender and imposition of gender roles as per the assigned gender.[3] Intersections and crossing of the prescribed boundaries have no place in the arena of the social construct of the term "gender".

      The assignment of gender involves taking into account the physiological and biological attributes assigned by nature followed by the imposition of the socially constructed conduct. Gender is a term used to exemplify the attributes that a society or culture constitutes as "masculine" or "feminine". Although a person's sex as male or female stands as a biological fact that is identical in any culture, what that specific sex means in reference to a person's gender role as a woman or a man in society varies cross culturally according to what things are considered to be masculine or feminine.[36] These roles are learned from various, intersecting sources such as parental influences, the socialization a child receives in school, and what is portrayed in the local media. Learning gender roles starts from birth and includes seemingly simple things like what color outfits a baby is clothed in or what toys they are given to play with. However, a person's gender does not always align with what has been assigned at birth. Factors other than learned behaviors play a role in the development of gender.

      Jammidodger love you but I think this is gonna age badly. Saying that her experiences or reasons aren’t valid reasons are damaging. Trans people can say and do contradictory and confusing things. I don’t see how Trisha is any different. Also have you never heard of Pangender? Pangender falls under the transgender umbrella. Anyways, In the last drew years it’s been accepted that you’re trans if you say your trans and that Truscum are damaging to the trans community. It is very wrong to pick apart a trans persons coming out video and point out how certain things like not liking makeup has nothing to do with being trans or not. That can be true but guess what most trans people coming out videos ALWAYS has some examples that have more to do with gender expression than gender identity which are still tied together. Same thing with gay people. The only universal thing that makes a gay person gay is that they like the same gender. But every gay coming out stories has all these things that people could get mad at and say they are stereotyping themselves. Does playing with dolls make a boy gay. Hell no but you might hear, when I was little I always liked dolls more than trucks. I would play dress up with my moms clothes..... I liked the color pink... I got bullied for being different.... I liked hanging out with the girls....none of those things actually mean someone is gay. The only thing that makes you gay is that you like people of the same sex. It should be safe for all trans people to come out on YouTube without getting things picked apart and make someone feel stupid. This is such a bad look. The only people that have a right to make these types of videos are Blair White and Kalvin Garrah and TruSum gatekeepers..... there are 7 Billion people on this earth and every single person is different.... there are going to be so many people that are confusing and contradictory to you. People aren’t going to fit in neat little boxes and say the right perfect things. If you want the freedom to be who you are then let others be too. Also I don’t agree that gender and sexuality can’t be a choice. People like the narrative that it’s can’t be a choice because then they think that cis normative heterosexuals should accept homosexuals and transgender but look at Ancient Greece and how widespread homosexuality was. Also look at the increase of homosexuality in prison and in the military and in the priesthood and all boys schools and universities. There are different levels of transgender people in different countries and throughout history. Just because you felt like it wasn’t a choice doesn’t mean that others felt like they could choose to be transgender or not. Like in Iran. They are a hub for sexual reassignment surgery and gay men will choose to be transgender so they can be with men. In Thailand, ladyboys have been very accepted so they have a high rate of ftm. Lately there have been an explosion of ftm and some of them detransition. Aren’t detransitioners making a choice. Aren’t there people that identify as another gender and make a choice not to be transgender and transition and identity as cis?

      I'm new to your channel, in fact I just subscribed just before I wrought this message and I am a supporter? (I guess that's what I'd be called anyway) Anyway I have always been called a "Tomboy" and it's because I like boy cloths and boy hair cuts and such and it got to the point that my oldest sister would say "You're just a gay man trapped in a straight woman's body, it's okay" so I get some of her fillings but I don't agree with the video she made because like you said some of it is contradictory to other things she said anyway I'm just learning about this stuff myself but I already know I support all LGBT ( I think that's all of them right?) I'm from the 80's and 90"s when that acronym came about so I don't really know if their have been more added or not, all I know for sure is I have kids and I want them to know it's okay for them to be who they really are and don't hide it or change because of others. In fact my oldest boy is a "PANsexuall" now I don't know much about that other then he loves love and my oldest daughter is bie(don't know if I spelled that right) and I'm okay with both I think they should be able to love who their heart desires you know what I mean? Well I think I've taaaken up enough of your time so I'll go but just know I support you no matter what.

      It's possible that she's trolling, but if she's not- my conclusion is that due to premature exposure to people sexualizing her body and bullying she is simply uncomfortable in her own skin and is suffering from some kind of identity crisis. She doesn't know if she wants to be the "tan girl," the "black girl," the "relatable nugget girl," the "super femme blonde girl," or a "gay man." She wants an identity that is popular and has a social group she can be a part of- because she feels that who she is- is not worthy/special/part-of-a-group. But additionally, like most people, she doesn't want others up in her business (especially sexually) 24/7. I find it interesting that her "low key," "non-sensual" part of her personality is associated with masculinity and her "high key," "sensual" personality is associated with femininity and the men she finds attractive are those who are more feminine than others. I would be more apt to believe her gender dysphoria if she felt more sensual as a man than as a woman.

            She clearly has a very warped view of men/women and their equality, and her discomfort with the patriarchy (completely understandable, it's horrible) is reflected in her longing to be a man and have male privilege. The fact that she says refers to men as 'men' and to women as 'bitches' or 'females' is pretty blatantly a product of internalized sexism.

                          I believe that she is mentally ill and she doesn't want to admit that she has a problem. Not based solely on this video but on many of her videos. She expresses her mood swings in her videos. She just doesn't know who she is as a person. She's friends with Shane Dawson. Can someone please ask him to talk to her? She needs serious professional help.

                            Still don't understand. If you are your gender what is gender. What makes you one gender over the other? If it isn't your likes. If it isn't a choice. What is it?

                                Sounds like someone so wound up in societal expectations that she didn't focus entirely on her sexual objectification for a single day and was like 'I enjoyed that, and since women are sexual objects, I must not be one'

                                      18:08 totally agree. It sounds like she isn't happy with the social expectations and treatments that surround being a female in our society the way it is now. And it sounds like she is just way misinterpreting anything and everything she knows about being trans to try and explain it. It also seems like she is glorifying gay men and their treatment of women, but not recognizing that a lot of that is because they aren't attracted to women, you should hear the way they talk about other gay men. Oftentimes, it's just as objectifying as when straight men refer to women. It just sounds like she has a bit of a cluelessness when it comes to how societal forces are affecting her, she might benefit from taking a sociology class so she can be a little more objective when looking at societal expectations and introspective when it comes to how those expectations and forces affect her.

                                            also lol i get the importance of cis people understanding the "not a choice" part of it but also since gender is a cultural construct there is still some element of choice for many of us. and there can be joy and beauty in that choice, like we "chose" to start hrt instead of just suffering and we "chose" to liberate ourselves from cisnormativity. even a choice between life and death is still a choice. idk i think of being trans as an empowering thing more than a "who would ever choose this???" thing but this is also the first video of urs ive watched so idk if you've spoken more on this

                                            I identify with so much of what she’s saying. I’m a bi-woman, with a masculine personality and very feminine body, and my closest friends of 15+ years are gay men. I also hate being the center of attention. I also seriously cringe being looked in a sexual manner by creepy straight men, which is probably why I’m obese and hardly leave the house. But...all of that doesn’t mean I’m a man, or a gay man, or a drag queen. I’m simply a human woman with issues. ;)

                                                  Like, as if she’s unaware that’s there still discrimination within the community especially towards trans, non-binary, and even bisexuals, and woman(including trans women); with people claiming that’s their “not real”
                                                  Which is ridiculous that people think they have the right to invalidate someone’s identity
                                                  Yes the lgbt community is a very loving and welcoming group
                                                  It is not perfect, we also have close minded people, we also have people who try to dictate how people live their life

I haven’t gone to a single pride where there wasn’t people going around judging the others. I know a handful of people who claim to love the community, who identify within the community, but who will openly discriminate people who aren’t cis gendered

                                                                      AUDIBLE CONFUSION

It's hypocritical to criticize her for her claims. We are supposed to support everyone who makes these claims, even if they are confused. Now we DO get to pick and choose who to take seriously?

She's trying to be very "woke" and open minded but what's shes saying and how you can tell she thinks/has been taught to think is very closed minded. It's pretty confusing honestly. I think she means well but just...has a pretty close minded outlook on life.

And yes, I can be any gender that I choose. And I can be 100% trans and 100% feeling like a woman. Because nonbinary people are trans. There is WANT and there is CHOICE. Your "this is NOT a choice" is actually a phrase that is catered to strait cis people. Please don't devalue us. Trish wasn't very educated and said some rude things. But you are a much more educated person and should have known better :( Just to clarify: not a fan or even subscriber of Trish. Just a fellow nonbinary person who went through the same thoughts and feelings.
