No shame in his game! Tyler Baltierra replied to an Instagram user who commented that the Teen Mom OG star was very in touch with his “feminine” side, and he had the best response for such a ridiculous statement. The reality TV dad not only responded in an Instagram post, but he also added his reply to his Story just to make it very clear how he felt about the declaration. See how Tyler answered the remark in the gallery below.
Tyler, 27, is really great about communicating with fans on social media. He answers questions, shares his writing, and even offers updates on the family he shares with his wife, Catelynn Lowell.

Fans especially appreciate it when he posts about his daughter Novalee or baby girl Vaeda. His followers have basically been able to watch little Nova grow up thanks to social media!

Something to Say
To be fair, he does post a lot of selfies and shares self-reflective pieces a lot, too. We don’t think there’s anything wrong with that, but apparently, one fan had something to say about a recent photo Tyler shared.

On an update the Teen Mom star shared, one fan wrote, “You seem to be very comfortable with your feminine side.” No explanation, just a weird, out of the blue comment.

“It has never bothered me. I was always told as a kid that I was ‘too feminine,'” Tyler began his response.

“But I was raised in a household as the only boy with my single mother and my older sister,” he pointed out. Now, he lives in a house full of wonderful girls!

He continued, “I think I was blessed to be raised without the idea that I have to trade my sensitive emotions for masculinity.”

The reality TV personality apparently felt so strongly about the comment a random person made, he decided to repost it as an update on his Instagram Story, too. Clearly, the statement stayed with him.

He reposted the comment and made sure to circle it in red. Then, Tyler added a “100” emoji and the hashtag “#NoShame.” (Just to make it really clear that he was not having that B.S.)

Accept and Deflect
As aforementioned, Tyler seems to have no issue with opening up to his followers. On an Instagram photo of himself posted on August 13, he wrote, “I’m not here for acceptance. I embrace all my rejections and deflect all that is negative to me 👊🏻💯✌🏻.”

What More Could You Want?
If Tyler is in fact “comfortable” with his “feminine side,” is there a problem with that? We don’t think so! And his wife Cate clearly doesn’t mind being married to someone who will openly communicate whatever he’s feeling. Honestly, what more could you want from a marriage?
