The Actress Gets Candid About Birdie’s sexuality
Busy Philipps got candid with the followers of her podcast. During an episode of Busy Philipps Is Doing Her Best on December 30th she revealed her 12 year old came out to her and her husband Marc Silverstein. And, she explained this happened a few years ago.
For those of you who are my friends listening at home, this is the first you’re hearing that Birdie is gay and out. Birdie told us at 10 years old and we immediately…I mean obviously, I knew that Birdie knew.”
She continued to explain: I said, ‘You know, Bird, I’ve been doing a bad job with the pronouns. Because Birdie said that they would like their pronouns to be they/them, and I haven’t been doing it, and I said because I have this public persona and I want Birdie to be in control of their own narrative and not have to answer to anybody outside of our friends and family if they don’t want to.”
Did Birdie Give Her Mother Permission To Reveal This Info?
One of the biggest topics of conversation on social media is whether Busy Philipps was in the right to talk about her daughter being gay. Was this the kind of information she should be broadcasting to the world? She, however, proceeded to comfort those concerned. Busy made it clear she had permission to discuss her daughter being gay.
“Bird was like, ‘I don’t give a f–k. You can talk about that I’m gay and out. You can talk about my pronouns. That would be cool with me. That’s great.”
Busy admits that while she “f*cks up” sometimes with the pronouns…. She’ll try to do better.
Busy Philipps Gay Trends: Internet Has Mixed Feelings
Now, as we mentioned previously “Busy Philipps gay” is trending across Google and social media at the moment. This is a lot of information to digest and the internet seems to have mixed feelings. For starters, a lot of people don’t seem to understand the pronoun information. Secondly, some think Birdie is too young to know what them/their sexuality is. Third, some just feel like this isn’t information that needed to be made public.
I totally accept anyone's sexual preference/orientation. But I don't understand the 'they/them' label. To me, those words mean more than one. I honestly don't get it, but would like to. Multiple personalities? I know that's not it, but it doesn't make sense. Continued…

In response to the news on Twitter, some admit they fully accept someone’s sexuality. But, the pronouns confuse them. And this is mostly because “they/them” usually refers to more than one person. And, some people are having a hard time digesting a single person referring to themselves in that way.
