The queer rapper discussed the importance of pronouns while on tour.

During a sit-down conversation from Mykki Blanco's recent world tour, an interviewer asked the queer rapper if he understood why pronouns were confusing to ill-informed individuals. "There are so many variations within the spectrum of gender," she said to Blanco. "And everyone wants to be called exactly how they feel. Can you understand that's a bit confusing to some people?"

Blanco responded, saying, "I understand that people can have trouble with it, but who cares? Get on board, that's life." He continued, "One of the things I'll never do is make excuses for hetereosexual people. Our whole entire world is ran for the most part by a patriarchal heterosexual agenda, and I'm sorry, but if it's too confusing for you now, watch this program, read a book, read a magazine [...] Life is an ongoing journey."
