Meet the biophiliacs: They’re making the world a better place

By Sarah KutaCNNHealth writerThe term biophilia, coined by British designer Emma Watson, has gained popularity as a new way to talk about gender and appearance.

Watson was among the first to use the term when she made her debut as a fashion designer in the 1950s.

She’s been known to use it as a way to describe how she views her body and how she identifies as a woman.

In a 2016 interview with The New Yorker, Watson said, “I don’t believe in having to tell people what they look like, but I’m going to tell you that I’ve been the most beautiful person in the world and I’ve never had a woman come up to me and say, ‘I’ve always liked your body.’

I don’t care what you look like.

I’m the most attractive woman in the universe.”

Watson is just one of many celebrities who have taken the concept of biophiles to a new level of popularity. 

Here are some of the more famous women using the term in the last few years: Alicia Keys, a former model and actress, tweeted that she believes biophilis are “perfectly natural.”

“Biophilia is a word I use to describe what we do to ourselves, and how we live our lives,” Keys said.

“I believe we’re all born with a beautiful body.

Biophilia makes sense.

It’s natural.” 

Lady Gaga, a pop singer and singer, used the term biohistophilia to describe her attraction to the body of a transgender woman, which she also uses to describe herself.

“The fact that I can actually feel what my body feels like is something that is unique to me,” Gaga said. 

The former singer of Lady Gaga, The Killers, and The Who, tweeted in June 2016 that she felt she was “transsexual in every sense of the word.”

“I don.

I don.

It.

Does.

Matter,” she tweeted.

“In my mind, I can’t do what I want, so why should anyone else?”

The musician, songwriter and singer Rihanna, who has become an advocate for transgender rights, used it to describe the way she identifies. 

“I feel like I have the perfect body.

It is not for sale.

It can’t be taken away from me,” she said.

She used the phrase in a 2017 interview with The New York Times Magazine.

“I believe that the beauty of a person is in their uniqueness.

And if I am going to embrace myself in the way that I want to, I need to embrace who I am and the way I am born,” Rihanna said.”

Bisexuality is the ability to embrace a gender that you may not fit into.” 

Beyoncé, a Grammy Award-winning artist and singer and a mother of two, used biophile to describe an identity she says is not in alignment with her biological sex. 

She said she felt the phrase is “not appropriate for a gender nonconforming person,” though she did not specify her biological gender.

“Bi-sexuality is a very personal thing.

I know it is,” Beyoncé said.

Bruno Mars, a singer-songwriter, actress and actress and an activist for transgender issues, used biophilia to discuss her transgender identity. 

He said he feels like his “biophilia” is “very much the way it should be,” adding that he “never thought that it would be anything other than a natural thing.”

“It’s something that I have always been able to feel in my body.

My gender is not something that’s in alignment,” Mars said in a 2016 podcast.

“If I’m being honest with myself, I feel like my body is completely feminine.

It has this unique quality to it that I’m not always comfortable with.” 

In 2017, the former singer-actress and current model Kylie Jenner, who is transgender, also used the word to describe being transgender.

“For me, it’s the way my body looks that makes me feel like a woman,” Jenner said.

She said she used the expression to describe who she was.

“When I was growing up, I always thought I was a boy and I thought my body was a girl,” Jenner told the Los Angeles Times in 2017.

“But when I transitioned, I felt like my identity wasn’t completely made up.” 

“Biosexual” has become a common buzzword to describe a person’s gender and gender expression. 

According to the National Center for Transgender Equality, there are about 5.5 million people in the U.S. living with gender dysphoria, and one in three transgender people experience it. 

While many people identify as transgender, it is not known how many have experienced gender dysphoric disorder. 

In a 2015 study, researchers at Columbia University Medical Center and the University of California, Berkeley, found that about one in five transgender adults
