North Ogden, UT—Infamous Church reject John Dehlin has begun displaying his preferred pronouns on his YouTube channel so that people will stop thinking he’s a girl.
“People kept asking me if I was actually a man,” says Dehlin, “So I wanted to make it clear that my five o’clock shadow, chiseled chin, and protruding bulge are all real.”
While attaching pronouns to one’s moniker is becoming increasingly common, Dehlin wants his fans to know his specific reason for making the change. “I’m not a tranny. Honest. I may have left The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, but I haven’t left my assigned gender at birth—yet.”
