Rowan Blanchard is proving once again that she is wise beyond her years.

The 14-year-old Girl Meets World actress has never been one to shy away from mature, important conversations. As it turns out, this weekend was no different when the Disney Channel star opened up about her sexuality.

In a Twitter post shared early Saturday, Rowan called herself "queer," but also expressed the importance of not labeling others.

"In my life—only ever liked boys," she shared online. "However I personally don't wanna label myself as straight, gay or whateva so I am not gonna give myself labels to stick with—just existing;)"

She continued, "Yes, [I'm] open to liking any gender in future is why I identify as queer."

The dialogue comes after the actress penned a lengthy blog post titled "Sorry, Not Sorry."

In the article, Rowan explained how she "quit apologizing for existing." She also shares three things that have helped the young star "trust myself enough to know that I don't always have to say sorry for myself."

After the article was posted, one fan decided to share her hopes for a "BisexualRileyMatthews2k16." It's an idea Rowan happily supports.

"Would really be here for this!" she replied to the tweeter. "If not Riley- its vvv important to me, being queer, that there is representation on our show."

She added, "& being queer to me just means not putting a label on sexuality- just existing."

New episodes of Girl Meets World air Friday nights only on Disney Channel.
