Ruby Rose says she has always been a tomboy since she was little, she also says she is gender fluid. Ruby Rose felt hurt in the past when people would criticise her by the way she dressed. She says fashion means expressing who you are and how you can express yourself. It doesn't matter if you’re dressed like a male or female as long as you feel like yourself it’s all that matters. People that are androgynous are not born specifically to perform as women the way women do or as men the way men do.
