5. The 28 Years Old American Rapper Is a Cisgender Woman
As far as many are concerned, there are only two sexes, male and female. But then, more and more people are entertaining the belief that people can be intersex and fall outside of these categories. For transgender people, it is a reality that has had them identify as trans men, trans women, or something else.
For several reasons that range from her physique to her mannerism, people have had reasons to wonder if Megan Thee Stallion is a trans woman. There is no concrete piece of evidence that validates the suppositions about the rapper being transgender.

4. The Rapper’s Physique Is One of The Major Reasons People Ask Questions About Her Gender
Megan Thee Stallion’s physique and stage name are some of the factors that have been driving the speculations about her being transgender.
The rapper stands at 5 feet 10 inches (178 cm/1.78 m). At that height, she is taller than most men in the United States and towers above the majority of American women— the average height for men and women in the country is 5 feet 9 inches (175 cm/1.75 m) and 5 feet 4 inches (163 cm/1.63 m) respectively.
She has a sturdy figure that complements her height and a defined jaw. These physical features are stereotypically considered to be masculine, hence the speculation that the Savage singer is trans.
More so, her stage name is considered in some quarters as a hint of her gender. For instance, a Quora user once pointed out that stallions are male horses as he posited that the rapper calling herself a stallion is a hint “at her male origins”.
3. People Believe Her Male Genitalia Once Popped Out While She Was Twerking On Stage
The belief that Megan Thee Stallion is cisgender is mostly based on the fact that she has not said anything that suggests otherwise. She was assigned female at birth and has identified as such all her life. Nonetheless, some people would bet an arm that she’s trans and this is based on a video that once circulated on social media platforms.
The said video depicts the rapper performing on stage, she was twerking, and something that looks like a scrotum can be seen dangling between her legs. Be that as it may, one can’t be certain that what was seen was what it was thought to be. Megan has not dignified the speculations about her having male genitals with a comment.

Moneybagg Yo (DeMario DeWayne White Jr.) is an American rapper from Memphis and one of the ex-boyfriends of Megan Thee Stallion.

At some point, while dragging each other on social media, The Memphis rapper who featured Megan in “All Dat”, the lead single from his third studio album, Time Served, shared pictures of hormone replacement therapy medications online.
He claimed that the medications belonged to Megan and that their relationship was a publicity stunt. As one would expect, this fueled the speculations about Megan Thee Stallion’s gender. However, it was never confirmed that the medications were Megan’s.
Yo isn’t the only rapper who has suggested that Megan isn’t cisgender. In 2020, following the shooting incident between Megan and Tory Lanez whom she also dated, New York rapper Cam’ron (Cameron Ezike Giles) joked about the incident on Instagram to the ire of many.

Based on that, it wouldn’t be wrong for one to proclaim that the rapper is straight. But then, that’s not the only fact to consider. In her 2020 song, Captain Hook, Megan talked about “texting with a bi chick”. When Vogue asked her about that in an interview, she divulged that she has kissed a few girls.
