Boy George, frontman for Culture Club, and pioneering queen of attention-seeking, took to Twitter this week to proclaim, “Leave your pronoun’s at the door!”

A move that got him tagged as “transphobic” by the ridiculous left.

The pronoun reference being to gender pronouns used by those who take issue with “he” and “she.”

The recording artist got a full dose of the intolerance on the left when he was quickly branded “transphobic” — in part because Boy George said that gender pronouns are a “modern form of attention-seeking.”

And he would qualify as an expert here — having done so without offending an entire generation.

Not that the singer didn’t revel in the moment.

As for his critics, Boy George is not taking a back seat to the transgender community, as seen in a number of replies to those bashing him.

“You must refer to me as ‘Napoleon’ and that’s as ridiculous as it gets! I used the ladies toilet throughout the 80s!” he said in one such response.

He also exposed himself as someone who has a firm grip on biology — the angst of today’s generation.

“Thanks for that but I have eyes and can mostly describe what I see!” he tweeted, when asked why he couldn’t just “show others respect by using their preferred pronouns?

“There’s nothing ‘phobic’ about Miss Boy George! Nish! Nada!” he also tweeted.

But a video clip Boy George shared captured his sentiment best.

“I’m loving that you can choose bigger eyelashes –  because I’m really phobic. Look at me, years of phobia, as if, you ridiculous people,” he said in the clip.

To another social media user expressing their disappointment, Boy George suggested some people focused too much on their physical form.

“I have more experience with sexual identity than almost anyone,” he tweeted. “April Ashley being my hero as far back as the 70s. I have fun on here but sadly some people take themselves and their physical form too seriously!”

For another heartbroken fan, Boy George let it be known that tolerance for others has never been a problem for him.

“You cannot teach me anything. I am queer. The queerest of the queerest. I have never had an awkward moment with any person I consider ‘other’ and I hope I never will!

In the end, he concluded what many in the political arena learned a long time ago: “Millennial’s have no time for serious debate, unless you agree with them.”

While there were plenty of critics crying about transphobia, Boy George also had his share of those who agreed with his take:
