  1. yo I’m not a shoe size 10 I’m a size 22 in MEN’S. everyday my body aches from lifting the weight of my massive ginormous feet. If you’ve ever looked at a photo of my feet you would easily be able to tell that they are HUGE and bigger than size 10. I would appreciate if you stopped spreading lies about my shoe size. Thank you! -G XOXO

  2. I’m sorry Hayden but I don’t see anything funny about being pan again I’m sorry I could’ve read it wrong I love Gee no matter what

  3. Stop assuming his sexuality and gender, he is gnc and has not confirmed his sexuality, Hayden 🙂
    He has not confirmed being pan or bigender. Also that is not the definition of bigender. I should know, i myself identify as bigender

  4. I do not see the point in having a sexuality like why can you not like what you like and get over it like its what your attracted to.Then again I am a 13 year old in 2021 who does not know how to feel about life so…..
