    It's such a pleasure to hear such an intelligent, mature young man. I would love to have a chance to engage Shawn in further discussion about more issues, he's a real gift both musically and intelligently. What a fine young man in so many ways!

        Sometimes I feel like interviewers are like therapists. “How do you feel about that” “ “hows it going today?” “How do your friends act around you”

                      This is such an amazing interview, I love that Shawn is so open about this, truly feels like I'm visiting a therapist when he speaks about these issues. One of the many reasons why he is one of my favorite celebrities <3

                                  He’s so beautiful
                                  I followed him from stitches, treat you better some of his older songs and illuminate album which got me through a difficult place, but his recent album has made me fall in love with him more I got tickets last year for his tour going on now and I saw him live and it was amazing I have fallen in love with who he is. Another plus is He’s great friends with Drake my bby

THIS, folks. This is how everyone should handle these things. Do what you feel is right without hurting someone. Just be supportive. Yes, it may be weird for a bit when you're used to calling someone a different pronoun, yes, it does take a little time to get used to. But you will get used to if you just go along with it. It ain't that hard. And seeing someone you love this happy is the only reason you should need to just be an ally and support them, like a decent person.
