Understanding oneself and sexuality is key to having healthy psychological well-being. Thus, what they are doing helps these people so much.

 When asked by a fan about what her sexuality is, the star said she doesn’t really know. Then, in an interview with People, she was asked the same question. In response, Jojo said she has always used the terms gay and queer because those are umbrella terms that cover them all. She also liked to joke that the correct label for her is “Ky-sexual” because Kylie is the one she loves. All jokes aside, she said she is leaning more towards pansexuality. 

In her own words, Siwa said that her person would be her person. It does not matter if that person is a boy or a girl. Based on that, you could argue that she is bisexual. However, she said it herself that she technically would be considered pansexual because she knows she is capable of loving someone regardless of their gender identity. 


 A person that is pansexual can get attracted to people who identify as male, female, or neither of those. They are versatile and flexible in relationships. In line with Jojo Siwa’s statement, pansexuals see people for who they are, not for what they identify with. To them, a great person is a great person, a candidate for a romantic relationship. Because of this nature, pansexuality is the gender identity that is the most inclusive. 

Jojo Siwa said this could be the label for her since she feels like this ever since. However, she is still not sure if it really embodies her sexuality. So, you can also say she belongs to the Queer or Questioning group of people. It doesn’t really matter, though. Jojo believes and shows that you should not feel pressured when discovering yourself. You should not rush to find a label for your sexuality. That ideal is something that sex toys and sexual wellness companies also promote. Intimacy with yourself is essential for your growth, so you take your time when you are reflecting.

Especially because it’s a man.” Jojo says that she is not about it, and she wants it to be pulled so badly.
