She has also called herself “a lesbian trapped in a man’s body” or “a complete boy plus half girl”.
During an interview with Windy City Times last year, she had literally spelled out her gender-fluidity, when she said:
“I have boy mode and girl mode. I am kind of gender fluid. I want to express both sides of myself, which has always been there. I am a tomboy and tomgirl kind of person.
I am going with either “he” or “she.” Either way is fine. If I am in boy mode then “he” or girl mode “she.” People get confused, but thank you for asking.”
Eddie also said previously that she knew she was a transgender person at the age of four, after watching a boy being forced to wear a dress by his sisters.
