Billy Dee Williams Clarifies "Gender Fluid" Comments


Billy Dee Williams is clarifying his previous comments leading many to believe he stated he was "gender fluid."
Williams originally said, "I never tried to be anything except myself...I think of myself as a relatively colorful character who doesn’t take himself or herself too seriously." 
He also added, "You see I say 'himself' and 'herself,' because I also see myself as feminine as well as masculine." Williams explained "I'm a very soft person. I'm not afraid to show that side of myself."
However, Williams has now clarified those comments saying "Well, first of all, I asked last night, I said, 'What the hell is gender fluid?' That’s a whole new term." 
Williams says "What I was talking about was about men getting in touch with their softer side of themselves. There’s a phrase that was coined by Carl G. Jung, who was a psychiatrist who was a contemporary of Sigmund Freud, and they had a splitting of the ways because they had different ideas about the … what do you call it? Consciousness. Unconscious. It’s collective unconsciousness. But he coined a phrase that's, 'Anima animus.' And anima means that is the female counterpart of the male self, and the animus is the male counterpart of the female."
"So, that’s what I was referring to. I was talking about men getting in touch with the female side of themselves. I wasn’t talking about sex, I wasn’t talking about being gay or straight. People should read [Jung]. I mean, it would be an interesting education for a lot of people" Williams said.
Williams confirms "I’m not gay — by any stretch of the imagination. Not that I have anything against gay people. But personally? Not gay."
