NikkieTutorials: “I’m coming out”



“I was born in the wrong body, which means that I am transgender”

- says she’s wanted to talk about it for a while but could never figure out when the best time to do it would be.
- some people tried to blackmail her, which is what finally forced her hand.
- at the age of 6 grew her hair out and by 7/8 wore “girls clothes only”. Her mum was extra supportive, so were her teachers. Basically says that kids will be kids, which can give you an idea about some of her classmates’ reactions I guess.
- started taking hormones and “growth stoppers” at age 14. Had fully transitioned by age 19 (while already being a youtuber)
- talks about her fiancé, and how she waited to reveal this information and how she wishes she’d told him sooner. “At the point where I told him my full story, of course he was shocked, but that is a private matter that we’re dealing with, and that I’m so proud of, that we’re able to deal with”. Refers to her fiancé as special, kind-hearted, strong and inspiring.
- says that if you are in the same situation as her, and have fallen in love with someone, you have to tell them, that “it’s what they deserve”. “The sooner, the better”, she continues, but not until you feel you’re in good, safe hands.
- has a special message for those who tried to blackmail her.
- says she’s still the same person, she’s still Nikkie.

VILE circumstances but I am genuinely am shocked, would have never guessed.

Wishing her all the very best going forward.
I saw the title on twitter and I thought she was bi until I read the "This is how you do it, Trisha." And I thought Nikkie identifies as a transman until someone else clarified it later in that thread. (I'm reading this all while on the toilet at work.) I'm happy for her and I also dislike when people try to blackmail others. Especially with outing people and I know that others are okay with assholes being blackmailed but to me, that's still gross. Blackmail is blackmail no matter who is it happening to.
yeah, i thought she was saying that she was a transman at first.
this was my thought process too now I wished I would have just watched the video first

Wow! I’m actually so so shocked. We just recently watched Glow Up on Netflix and she’s SO TALL! So I guess that kind of explains it. But I would have never had a frigging clue considering how long she’s been on YouTube!

So sad she was being blackmailed though, bc really, none of that is our business

Dutch people are just really tall tbh

I mean, the average women’s height in the Netherlands is 5’6. So she is quite taller. Like I said, when I saw the show, I thought nothing of it other than damn she tall!

not really. i have a friend who is 6'2" and a ciswoman and i am also cis and 6"
ppl who blackmail are vile, i'm happy she felt safe and secure enough to come out with this considering the circumstances
I bet the blackmailers were journalists.
My guess was Jeffree Star. Back in 2017 when they had a falling out he had a snapchat that said she's not speaking out because he has "dirt on everyone and they know to keep their mouths shut"
Im sure it was him too, or someone adjacent

His vileness knows no bounds. Even if the blackmailer isn't him, if he knew this about Nikkie and tried to use it as "dirt" it's horrific.
Bless her supportive family and bless that school she went to.
MTE. Her mom was amazing. :)
Fuck those blackmailers. I didn't know this was something that she hadn't talked about on her channel before but what kind of asshole would do that to someone?
wow that left me really emotional

it completely sucks that someone was blackmailing her & she had to do this but I'm so glad she had the family support she needed and wish her the best for sure.
That's such a fucked up thing to blackmail someone about, and I wonder how the blackmailer found out?
I saw on the beauty guru subreddit that it's kind of well known in the netherlands, people who knew her as a kid and stuff but no one cared
Ooo, interesting. In that respect, I'm actually surprised it took this long to become public knowledge since the beauty guru community is full of messy/nosey gossipy people who love revealing shit from people's pasts.

I wouldn't say it was well known here tbh. Some people definitely knew and there have been rumours before, but everything has always been dismissed as just gossip.
transphobes claim that it's always obvious when someone is a "biological female" (including some ppl on ontd) so i think this is a super interesting situation
seriously, I would never have known and from the looks neither would anyone else on here.
mte, i didn't have a single inkling

(she also used puberty blockers to transition early, which transphobes say ~ruin children's lives using anecdotal examples... here's an anecdotal example of a transwoman who loves herself and is successful and incredible and didn't have her life ruined by transitioning early for you, asshats)
Eh. I think we can acknowledge that the health related side effects of puberty blockers (many of which are potentially deadly) are cause for concern, while also acknowledging that it's the best choice for some people. It doesn't really have to be 100% one or the other. Like, there are great stories like Nikki with relatively few side effects and there are also people who are in incredible pain - we shouldn't silence one in favor of the other.

The last post about nb people has a lot of those comments
I have a close friend who is a transwoman and she claims that most people can’t tell on sight. Which I didn’t believe at first because I know that when I met her it was fairly obvious, but then she has since told me MANY stories about men she meets or even dates being completely unaware (sometimes until they meet and sometimes even after) so maybe it’s just straight men who are completely clueless? Because the reverse happens to me all the time, I’m a ciswoman who has gotten questioned fairly regularly on dating apps - and in person, more than once - about whether I’m trans (though they never phrase it very respectfully) so who knows? Maybe I really have met way more trans people than I realize
Yeah she genuinly passes. Anyone who claims otherwise is lying to themselves.

I’m someone who usually picks it but it’s defiantly changed my mind on that particular issue.

Fuck the asshole who tried to blackmail her.
I’m so shocked by this! Good for her for telling her own story and not letting some asshole leak it. I hope this makes transphobic people realise how wrong they are. If they loved Nikki before they should love her now. Nothing has changed.
Awww i just adore her
SO happy for her!

I'm convinced that Jeffree threatened to blackmail her though, he at one point was saying he knew "secrets" about Nikki or something.
He was talking about her making racist comments in the past, I believe. I don't know if he actually exposed them though because they were already public..
ah that's right. would hope that even J* would recognize some things were off limits.
Jeffree was my first thought too and he is 100% scummy enough to do it. People assumed he was talking about her racism but there could have been more to it.
Jeffree is garbage so I wouldn’t be surprised
Jeffree is a monster but I don’t think he’d hold something like that over her head. He also tweeted her a supportive message and called her a friend, which could obviously be to save face but I think any secrets were unrelated
I immediately thought of Jeffree and how quickly he dropped Nikki out of nowhere

Seems like the kind of thing he would do
He was definitely my first thought, especially since his relationship just ended
the only thing i know about jefree is how awful (and ugly) he is so yeah, could totally see him as the blackmailer
Wow....I'm shocked!
I wish her happiness! Sucks she had to come out this way, nobody deserves that.
