SixtyForceDemon

Claire Boucher


thebestatspaghettios

Isn't that the lady from Evil?


LillyXcX

I think it was kristen Bouchard


mazi710

A couple fun ones i feel like don't really fit: Grimes = Claire Kid Cudi = Scott 6ix9ine = Daniel DaBaby = Jonathan Drake = Aubrey Travis Scott = Jacques Bermon Webster The 2nd


MephistosFallen

Ok Travis Scott should have kept his birth name cause that is REGAL


xylophonesRus

Whoopi Goldberg = Caryn Johnson


prolillg1996

HER NAME ISNT WHOOPI!


xylophonesRus

😂 nope! In fact, she's technically a Karen!


OhioStateGuy

My favorite stage name vs birth name will always be Aloe Blacc = Egbert Nathaniel Dawkins III I know he has a son and I don’t know his name but I really hope it’s Egbert Nathaniel Dawkins IV


UusiSisu

Olivia Wilde = Olivia Cockburn (pronounced Co-burn) Vin Diesel = Mark Sinclair Portia de Rossi = Amanda Lee Rogers Meg Ryan = Margaret Mary Emily Anne Hyra Natalie Portman = Neta Lee Hershlag Reese Witherspoon = Laura Jean Reese Witherspoon Meghan Markle = Rachel Meghan Markle Brad Pitt = William Bradley Pitt


ScrappleSandwiches

Idk, it did sound to me like something a Claire would say

skayeaz

She did


Marshall_InTheDoor

Her parents are art collectors living in the most expensive neighborhood in Vancouver, seems like the name they'd pick


gunlmars

“claire i threw up”


fractiouscatburglar

Pardon me Claire, I seem to have shat myself.


gunlmars

claire i had a horrible dream, may i sleep on your’s and elon’s bed?


MrBanana421

No claire, I absolutely refuse to join you and Elon on one of your escapades. I will remain at home instead and regard Dora on her grand adventure with the jackanape.


gunlmars

claire, excuse my tardiness but when will supper commence?


One_Equivalent_7031

this is absolutely how that child of hers is going to talk one day 💀💀


Hugh_Ja_ss

Alright Stevie, calm down now you

Willis050

I say they call her momma grimes


SadButterscotch2

Lmao I completely forgot about that video, oh my god


pineapplesandpuppies

Babies will learn to call you what you tell them to call you. Lmao it's not like they inherently know to call someone "mother" as though its the same as learning to walk. Hate to break it to you, Claire, but your kid calls you by your name because that is how you refer to yourself.


AvrieyinKyrgrimm

It sounds like a *her* problem that she's just projecting onto her 1 year old child. Kid could practically have a childhood that we all dreamed of and is still gunna need therapy because of his loser parents.


alloranbay

Mama and the like are very common in a languages because that's the thing babies can learn the earliest the easiest.


pineapplesandpuppies

Yes, babies naturally say things like "mamama" and "dadadada" but they aren't assigning people titles they've never been taught. It's just language development.


SallyKhunt

Seen it with my own eyes.


I_am_dean

Grimes - mama! Baby - *looks at her* Grimes - mama! Baby - mama! Grimes - *gets offended*


VaguelyArtistic

>Babies will learn to call you what you tell them to call you. I am a US-born, native English speaker. I did not emerge from the womb knowing the words maman, papa, and mémé, I learned them because that’s what my native-French speaking mother taught me. It’s also super anglocentric to assume that the entire world uses the same words as you.


pineapplesandpuppies

Exactly. I've actually met multiple people who believe mama and daddy are just natural words that babies know. My husband is hispanic and my daughter will call him papi. She is learning sounds and often will say "dadada" sounds. I have a friend who keeps saying that my daughter is trying to say "daddy". No she's not. Edited for clarity


VaguelyArtistic

And now, the rest of the story…. My parents were both immigrants who came here after WWII, traumatized and grateful for the US. They spoke five languages between them but my father decided that “we were Americans, and we speak English here!” My French has not evolved past infanthood lol. Funny thing, I never stopped using ‘mémé’ and ‘papa’ but started using ‘mom’ as soon as I realized that’s what all my friends used because I wanted to fit in.


halation-

This has the same energy as when that one Teen Mom cast member said that it's good for her 4 year old daughter to "have a break" from her because "she has her own life and is doing her own thing." Uh, no, ma'am. Your child needs you. Stop being weird and selfish.


shantayyoustayyy

Farrah Abraham. I'm sorry to tell you but it all went downhill from there.


brucegibbons

Still rolling right on downhill


Jackolantern9

Hahah I thought the same thing. “Micheal!”


xMyChemicalBromancex

Isn't that a pornstar?


gumgumdumhum

That was after teen mom


asportsmanssketches

I mean?? Break as in a weekend with grandparents or break as in neglect??


halation-

I think this was in reference to her being asked about how her daughter responds to her being gone for so long when she was traveling/partying/making public appearances. There was also that time she posted a tiktok of her hitting her daughter in the face with an unopened box containing a dildo. So, yeah.


EtherealLovegloss

She did what now


asportsmanssketches

What a terrible mother.. someone mentioned in the comments that she no longer has custody.. hopefully that’s true


VacuouslyUntrue

Well teen mom probably means there's a chain of neglect in the family, so why not both?


frogsgoribbit737

Her mom was.. a peach for sure.


TheCloudsLookLikeYou

If I recall, the daughter was with her her dad’s family for some time? Her dad’s parents sued for visitation at some point after their son died. I may be misremembering, though.


aida_b

I checked out of watching that dumpster fire around 2013 bc it was too hard to watch Farrah treat her daughter like that. So I’m very, very glad to hear that the dads family sued for custody and that the daughter (hopefully) spent some time in a healthy environment & has a safe place to go if things with Farrah get rough again. The majority of the teen mom cast are messes but Farrah as an extra level of awful


Cannabiscorps

They got soo much money reality doesn't matter


brucegibbons

The kid probably calls her by her name because it thinks the nanny is the mother.


RedundantMaleMan

"Who's this weirdo that rides around the house on a Segway with her sword?? I gotta get back to Mi Madre."


DrBootstrap

Take my free award, that made me LOL


CombinationIcy6282

I do not identify with mother either which is why I am called mom.


StarvingCartman

even stranger is the mother naming her son X


i_am_do_reddit_now

That's not the full name tho right? It's like X AE II - 12 or something


gh0stegrl

I could be wrong but I think I saw an article about how their request for that name got denied. It’s actually not possible to legally name your child something dumb, like pickles, or X Æ || - 12..


MrBanana421

I'm pretty sure pickles would be alright as a name in america. It's mainly the numbers and dashes that is a problem.


MalleBeer

I think the point was that you could pronounce it as “Kyle”, so his real name is supposed to be Kyle. Or something.


CuntCorner

I love how you say this as though it makes it better.


i_am_do_reddit_now

i didnt say that it's better, just stating facts.


5683968

What makes me the most upset is that they have access to all the resources in the world. They could give this kid the most amazing childhood, but all the money in the world and the kid will probably need therapy.


skyvex1

so so so much therapy


SuicidalCookie626

Why are you assuming they are bad parents?


CelloBae

Because they named their son X Æ A-12


hmmliquorice

Assuming whatever those celebrity papers say is true, I'm not sure it's a proof of love to not only give your child such a weird and difficult name, but then also deciding you don't identify with the concept of "mother" despite choosing to keep that child, carry it for 8 months and then birth it, and that it cannot call you mother but just by your first name, putting an emotional distance between you and him... if that's all true, that kid will grow up with issues.


actual_mall_goth

I think it’s more about how Grimes isn’t strictly female idenitifing rather than them not being a “mother” in that sense.


hmmliquorice

I didn't know that when I commented but I've indeed seen it afterwards, although the comment section doesn't seem sure about what's their perception of their own gender identity. For me, calling my parents by their first name feels like putting an emotional distance between them and me, but indeed it's a learned thing, and gender identity wasn't much of a topic when I was born and as I grew up.


SuicidalCookie626

Yeah I mean they definitely aren’t doing things by the book but that doesn’t mean it’s bad, she just calls her kid X and I imagine that’s what their friends will one day call them. Doubt they will get bullied either for it, if I saw that name when I was little I’d be interested and think it’s cool rather than the opposite. But also if you grow up calling your mum by their name. You also wouldn’t think it’s weird, you’d think it’s normal. But she’s also not telling him to not call her mum. If you see the video and see the sentence in context it’s a lot softer than the article makes it out to be, like she’s just making conversation and expressing how all this new shit in her life is wild and she’s not use to it


CptMatt_theTrashCat

Her son is fucking 1. He cannot 'sense your distaste' for any words because he cannot comprehend them you pretentious fuckhead.


aronorab

I propose a campaign to strictly refer to Grimes as “mother” to further confuse alien baby X


HealthyFeta

Grimes is nonbinary and therefore probably doesn't like the term "mother". I'm assuming you didn't know.


theelusiveloon

Not trying to step on toes but isnt claire a pretty female presenting name? Idk how being called “mother” is going to be more dysphoric than “claire” especially if that was their name during parts of life where they were forced to present as female. Mainly ask because my sibling is non binary and completely changed their name to something with less female connotations.


abbyzou

Last I heard, she actually goes by 'C' in private life, not Claire


jayne-eerie

Yeah, that’s what surprised me about this — she’s on record as disliking her first name. I think she just says whatever seems interesting in that moment.


HealthyFeta

To each person it's different, Claire might connect things with the name that we don't know about (for example being named after someone special, etc) that outweigh the possible negative associations with the name :)


theelusiveloon

Ah, i see. Not very informed with all the nuances of the trans/enby community but always trying to learn!


Jaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay

ohhh for real? that makes this make much more sense, thank you


Rossakamcfreakyd

I get not wanting to be called “mother” or “mommy” if you’re non-binary, but I would think you’d find some kind of affectionate alternative? Calling your parent by their first name just seems so cold to me. Especially at such a young age!


fritter02

I know there is a set of common nonbinary parent names but I can't for the life of me remember what they are. So, yes, it is a thing nonbinary parents do


Bwaiite

I didn't know this but the OP gave me enbie vibes big time. Enbies really aren't like other girls :D


HealthyFeta

Yeah cuz we arent (exclusively) girls 😂 Me as a kid: im not like other girls Me realizing I'm enby: im not a girl:0


Bwaiite

Fr, story of my life too xD


Loinnir

All the more reasons to call her "mother"


eherqo

I know she’s rich and famous so no one gives a fuck but maybe let’s not do that or it becomes okay to disrespect non-binary ppl


Loinnir

Nah, let's


eherqo

This isn’t about grimes. This is about non-binary people.


Loinnir

I know


eherqo

So ur just transphobic?


Loinnir

Sorry bro, not everyone follows your religion


eherqo

Tis not a religion but okay


HealthyFeta

Yay, transphobia, so quirky 🤪


blackfuckingcat

I don’t see anything online where she has referenced herself as non-binary.


_TheShapeOfColor_

She's fuckin awful and so is Elon.


armarndar-

Elaborate? I am legit asking. I genuinely don't know and I'm curious to find out. Calm down.


stickkim

She’s just kind of weird and dumb, she seems like a very lost and sad person to me. I still think she sucks lol


imsorryifellasleep

You said it


alloranbay

Tbh she looks ND, not weird and dumb. She's probably autistic or ADHD or something like that, she's stimming in videos, has an autistic husband, and her eating habits she talked about in an interview are also pretty sus, but she is confirmed neurodivergent for sure. You are just not over this ableis (maybe also xenophobia) BS. Demanding people behave in certain ways deemed acceptable by your culture and label them dumb etc. if they don't is pretty bad (but, she does suck, even though I like some of her works)


Dependent_Ad_5035

*ableist and STOP ASSOCIATING NEURODIVERGENT PEOPLE WITH ASSHOLES


alloranbay

She is literally diagnosed just not disclosing the dx label so I guess yell at her doctor not me. I know we don't claim the Elon, but we can't just strip people of their dx because they are AHs and let/support people judge them for ND behaviors because we don't like them. Judge them for being AHs.


Jellyswim_

She's super into counter culture shit and that upsets a lot of people. I mean they named their kid 'X Æ A-XII' so its not totally unfounded.


SonnySunshineGirl

There was a clip a while ago of Elon being confused when someone asked him about the baby and called the baby that. So I like to think that they didn’t actually name the baby that they just wanted to fuck with people and give the kid some privacy, but also I wouldn’t put it last Elon to be that bad of a parent.


bboy6875

Yeah same with me. She gets so much hate and I don’t know why. Crazy you’re downvoted for even asking


armarndar-

FOR REAL. I'm just asking a question lol.


biscuitbutt11

She’s not awful. She has literally done nothing wrong. She has been an accomplished musician for years now.


chasingcorvids

she did take a musical grant one time that should have gone to another musician. she is married to a literal billionaire. i get that she wanted her music to be seperate from his wealth, but cmon. there were a lot of musicians who needed that so much worse than she did


andraaBD

I thought they weren't married. I remember reading an article where she talks about not using his money for her career and how so many people think she does. That she wants to further her career on her own and have her own success. How true is that, i dunno, just remember reading it in the article a while back.


yummysushiroll

SHES A COOL CLAIRE NOT A COOL MOM


dandy-lou

I wonder how her son will feel about it, growing up and not being able to call his mom "Mom".


earlslefttitty

hes just a baby what's he supposed to think lol


dandy-lou

I said, "Feels", and I meant more in a general sense. I am curious what it would be like, growing up and being told you're not allowed to address your mother as a mother, because she doesn't "identify" as one. It's just a sad situation.


[deleted]

He's literally a baby and also why would he care?


dandy-lou

I know he's a baby. That wasn't my point. I mean more in the general sense, growing up and being told you're not allowed to address your mom as your mom.


amytheirish

Keep up that energy *Claire* , soon you'll have an out of control brat who'd start making "billionaire's son" videos on YouTube while kicking you to the curb.


cbunni666

Sounds like she isn't use to the thought of being a mother so she doesn't want the label?


reddy1218

yeah i saw the vogue video that this article is talking about and she’s not comparing herself to other mothers, she’s just speaking on her current feelings…


BitlifeOffical_

I just read this article. I'm not throwing any hate on the name they gave their son, but why on earth would you do that???


No_you_choose_a_name

How does this kid already talk? Wasn't he born just the other day?


glitterfartsfrvr

She is ✨unstable✨


LilStabbyboo

I don't even know about that but Grimes has struck me for a while as just trying wayyyy too hard to be quirky.


whizzers_going_down

i thought her real name was grimes


Chaos_Is_Me_

Each generation of nepotists feel the need to “out do” the previous gen.


gucci_gear

Eh, if you read the whole interview she’s struggled a lot with motherhood in general, and she did say she had respect for mothers. I Just don’t think she saw her life going this way, being a mom is possibly the least edgy, rebellious thing you could do.


wontusethisforlongg

Tell me me you need therapy without telling me me you need therapy


stickkim

The kid definitely will


deandracasa

They both do


slaminsalmon69420

Isn't she non binary, this isn't that stupid if she's non binary or something


alloranbay

No official coming out, but mentioned not liking feminine labels and thinking of herself / wanting to be gender neutral. So it's not strange at all imo. Plus she's neurodivergent, so even if she's a girl she's literally not like other (neuro)typical girls. Getting a new label like mother can be really upsetting if you don't like change. The weird thing is the "kid senses my distaste" part imo


why-can-i-taste-pee

You’re still the kid’s mother.


endlesstoleration

The word mother is gendered


why-can-i-taste-pee

So...?


_-UndeFined-_

Now suddenly I hate my name.


buurnthewitch

Yea that child is gonna grow up so well adjusted


internetflavorium

That's grimey


Squishy-Box

New patch dropped


ghostbirdd

This kid's future therapist better be taking notes


Kobethevamp

I don't like Grimes but I don't see how this is a big deal? Tbh, it just sounds like she's experiencing some dysphoria or PPD.


agued4

“Excuse me Claire, I seem to have shit myself. Can I have a change and some breast milk? And please put the charge on my Tesla company card”


MephistosFallen

Poor kid was born to the craziest people on this planet, given the craziest name, and is going to have the craziest upbringing. I feel for him, damn.


Lokigodofmishief

All of it will drive crazy costs of therapy


veeelizabeth

I feel like this doesn’t fit, but that’s just me. I don’t see why it would matter that she doesn’t want to be “mother” if it makes her uncomfortable.

Claire, can you hear the lambs?


Elenathorn

There’s no NLOG association with being called mother. And there’s nothing weird about calling your parents by their first names. I don’t do it, but would. I don’t think it’s weird, and don’t think it fits here?


endlesstoleration

I know loads of people who call their parents by their first name. This is very Gatekeepy of how to be a parent.


Babeybananie

y'all never heard of non-binary parents and it shows


why-can-i-taste-pee

So?


tuuast

I hate grimes


[deleted]

All these comments shaming Grimes for not liking conventional motherhood have conservative/pickme energy. I thought this was an anti-pickme subreddit.


Hugh_Ja_ss

Not all of the comments tbh. We're just very confused, not pick me. I mean I get not liking the mother label considering she's non-binary. But there must be some other affectionate term perhaps? Don't you think it's weird that a 2 year old will shout CLAIRE, I HAVE POOP IN MY PANTS. Is she raising that kid as a kid or is she just feeding a fellow equal citizen? Kids don't sense any discomfort bruhh, they can pee right on your face for all they care. She's clearly making that part up in the article.


hmmliquorice

how is it "pick me energy" to let your own child use a term that's culturally been associated with emotional proximity with its female parent?


peachyprince55

Please remove this post, this is in reference to Grimes' discomfort with constantly being gendered as female


glassesforrabbits

"I vibe in a gender neutral space so I'm kinda impartial to pronouns for myself," Grimes tweeted back at the fan. "Don't have a [preference] so much but I wish I didn't have to be categorized as female constantly." That being said, it appears that since then, Grimes has identified as female and hasn't publicly asserted a they / them pronoun when being referred to as she / her. Still, her response in 2015 certainly makes it seem as though Grimes wouldn't mind a more neutral pronoun in reference to herself in the news and on social media. But she also hasn't spoken out about it much since then either.


IAlbatross

I would just report it. This isn't /r/notliketheothergirls at all. Literally the first rule of this sub is that a gatekeep-y comparison has to be made, and Grimes isn't comparing to anyone else, just talking about their own life, totally independently of other people's lives.


peachwheel

You’re right, but I have noticed that people will shit on Grimes every chance they get. Someone’s defense for hating Grimes was because they are ‘just weird and dumb’. Like how can you even say that about a person you don’t actually know?


neongloom

I feel like Grimes has a chaotic energy that you either love or hate. She's also just very unapologetic about her interests and will freely express her thoughts about any random thing in a way most celebrities won't. I find her really interesting and refreshing to listen to, but a lot of people dismiss her outright because she's weird, awkward and whatever else. I don't agree with putting her on this sub at all because she's not claiming to be superior to anyone, she's just doing her thing but it makes people uncomfortable because it's rare to reject mainstream ideas and be your own person to the degree that Grimes has. There have been some other posts here that don't really fit with the spirit of what this sub is meant to be. The existence of a girl choosing to do something that may go against the majority isn't by default some sort of 'I'm not like other girls' display, but I feel like people are just shitting on women and girls who dare to be themselves. I know it's not that deep but it's annoying when these terms start to be misused.


eherqo

Yeah unfortunately everyone just hates grimes and wants to shit on them. The bigger issue here is obviously binary gender titles but no ones cares bc it’s grimes


LJnosywritter

I think it'd be cool if they came up with some terms for non binary parents that don't like mother or father. Something easy for kids, but that doesn't have the same gendered aspect/history as the others. I have no problem with them not using mother but do find the claim the child "sensed her distaste" so uses claire to be a bit pretentious or maybe like many articles quoted very out of context. The kid lively calls Grimes by Claire as it's the name they hear others use and maybe what Claire uses themselves when talking to the kid same way others would say stuff like "mummy loves you," or "get your shoes for mummy," I don't know enough to hate Grimes, I definitely have not great views on tiny bits I do know, like the poor kids name. But it does seem like there is a lot of weird hate for her? I get I might be out the loop and they could be some evil bigot with horrific views, but I've only seen a bit about grimes and hate comments that never seem to specify why the person thinks they suck.


peachyprince55

People hate Claire by association for being married to Elon even though they don’t have the same views


why-can-i-taste-pee

People have already tried to do that, and it’s very stupid.


BoppinTortoise

If she doesn't want to be identified as a mother, she can be identified as a weirdo instead


[deleted]

I really don't think Grimes would mind being called a weirdo


lyssthebitchcalore

Yet she calls him x instead of his first name


BrainOnBlue

X is his first name.


Arielcinderellaauror

I thought the weird name they came up with they said read as 'Ash' ?


suspiciousfishy

The Æ symbol in the name is called ash (æsc)


[deleted]

So she didn't want to be a mother and hates to be remembered she is one(?


booksellingbaby

It doesn’t matter if she’s nonbinary or neurodivergent or whatever. She has a child now. It’s not all about her now. She is responsible for bringing up another human being with love and teaching it how to live in this world, and she’s already handicapped it by giving it that name. She doesn’t seem to be able to relate to it parentally, only by how she feels and thinks about it. That child will love its nanny, not “Claire.”


MildlyMoistMucus

I don't think it's weird. Where I grew up a lot of the Christians considered mom and dad to be disrespectful titles. Instead the children had to use Mrs/Mr [first name or surname] and the formal you for their parents. A lot of people here probably don't know how cringy the formal you feels, but it's especially cringy if you use it for your parents...


OprahisQueen

What do you mean by the formal you?


Sbkl

Probably a language other than English. For example in Spanish you say "usted" when referring to people above you like your teacher. The informal "tú" is for your friends and family. I knew some people called their family by usted and always thought it was weird.


OprahisQueen

Ah, right. I had forgotten my few years of elementary school French, with its “tu” and “vous”. Thank you for clarifying!


Suspicious-Life-713

Very pick me girl energy or her nanny does most the mommy duties 😂😂😂


[deleted]

"She doesn't do mommy duties like a REAL mother haha" is peak pick me girl energy.


Suspicious-Life-713

“I’m beyond the mother label and mother duties I’m too cool” lmao


_Not_this_again_

She's fucking weird and a try hard.

Ok so I'm currently banned form technically the truth and i can't find a way to DM you so, I just wanted to say, Catholics, Presbyterian and Jews are all very different but have almost the same foundation worshiping Jehovah, his son(not for Jews), the spirit and mother Mary (for Catholics).


Historical_Feature_9

i want her to search up the word ‘transgender’


hmmliquorice

Thankfully that kid has rich parents, because that's going to cost a lot in therapy.

no. she’s claire

As they all do at that age. Normal progression.


Spielburger_witFries

This is the most Grimes shit ever.


jedikraft

Alien X?!?


ruralmagnificence

I used to like Grimes and her music until she became this pseudo intellectual “being” and I say that because she probably doesn’t recognize herself as a “human”.


BriefShock

What’s her son name again?


AtomicMonkeyTheFirst

Thank God that kid is going to be rich, psychiatry is expensive.


nozomatli1

That kids gonna grow up to be a totally well adjusted person for sure.

[удалено]


veeelizabeth

I don’t think they’re married, I believe they’re just dating.


AssassinPsyche

Good thing there is many other names that mean the same like mom, mama, mommy, ma, and thats just in English. Every kid tries calling their parents by their given name when they learn that ma and pa aren't their actual names and most correct them, but some don't.


Me_lazy_cathermit

I am betting she yelled and threw tantrum at her kids, when they dared call her mom


DDHDoubleIPA

That’s Elon Musks wife


she_wanna_meet-carti

Id call her mommy grimes
