PinkNews tweeted Tuesday a video of CJ Duron, a 13-year-old California boy who claims to be “gender-creative,” and states, “Gender is over.”

Duron describes himself as having a “gender identity” that is male, but a “gender expression” that is female.
“To me, gender is over,” Duron says in the video, shrugging. “We don’t really need it. It’s kind of unnecessary.”
At age 11, Duron served as grand marshal of the Orange County LGBTQ Pride parade, an experience he describes as “magical” and “powerful.”
“My advice for other LGBTQ kids is to stand out from the crowd and be unique, and it’s good to be unique, and find friends who support you – no matter what,” Duron says in the video, adding his favorite hobbies are “hair, makeup, shopping, styling outfits, and hanging out with friends.”
In June, Duron told Popsugar that he wants to see an end to “gender bias.”
“Kids shouldn’t be forced to be something or someone who they aren’t,” he said. “When people call me a girl or misgender me I don’t really care. To me, gender is over. Gender is so last year.”
Duron’s video is posted just one week after former Vice President Joe Biden told his audience at a town hall event that even eight-year-old children should be allowed to decide their gender.
“The idea that an eight-year-old child, a ten-year-old child, decides, you know, ‘I want to be transgender. That’s what I think I’d like to be. It’d make my life a lot easier’ — there should be zero discrimination,” Biden said to a woman who identified herself as the mother of an eight-year-old “transgender daughter.”
The Democrat nominee, however, has waded into an area that many pediatricians and researchers warn is fraught with danger for young children who can be headed down a road that includes puberty blocking drugs, cross-sex hormones, mutilating surgeries – such as double mastectomies – and ultimately, sterility.
For example, attorney and author Jane Robbins revealed at the Federalist Wednesday a recently discovered letter that demonstrates how the Endocrine Society, a global organization that recommended an easing of restrictions on transgender hormones for young children, has “deftly misrepresented scientific reality to advance the agenda of a “lucrative and increasingly powerful” transgender industry.
The 2013 letter, uncovered by California endocrinologist Dr. Michael Laidlaw, urged the National Institutes of Health for more taxpayer funding for experimental interventions on individuals, including children, who claim to be transgender.
“It’s probably safe to say that Biden has no idea what he’s talking about,” Robbins, who has written extensively on the transgender industry, commented to Breitbart News.
“But it’s troubling that he’s willing to sign on to the radical-left agenda in full, not even bothering to investigate the ramifications,” she added. “The trans industry has succeeded in normalizing childhood sterilization and mutilation. How much lower can we go?”
Correct, gender has been replaced by Endocrine Disruptions and Neurotransmitter Imbalances, aka Mental Illness.

Natasha Chart is board chair of Women’s Liberation Front (WoLF), a feminist organization that has exposed, through polling, the lack of public support for gender identity policies such as allowing men and boys to identify into female-only sports and sterilizing dysphoric children. Chart said in comments to Breitbart News that “every adult involved in this is being irresponsible, their judgment no doubt clouded by the public applause they’re getting as ‘civil rights’ advocates.”
No one would clap and cheer if this was a little girl being taken by her parents to the strip club, or paraded around at a Player’s Ball; we would understand that these are unhealthy models of adult sexuality of which to expose a child. But if someone says a child is “LGBTQ,” then take them to the local burlesque troupe for makeup lessons right away?
There’s nothing about being same-sex attracted, or gender nonconforming, that means everyone should turn off normal considerations of child safeguarding. No children should get the message that hypersexual public behavior is a ‘natural’ part of any identity they may have when they’re older. And all adult entertainers need to have boundaries with children, regardless of their sexual orientation; children should not be their audience.
Biden’s support for allowing young children to decide their own gender identity does not appear to be shared by many Twitter users, who reacted negatively to Duran’s video:

this is child abuse

I counted 78 direct reply comments above, and all of them are (I believe justifiably) negative, and nowhere do I see a defense by @PinkNews. Maybe decisions about sex should be left to those who've reached puberty.

Children shouldn't even care about all of that

I'm proud of these replies. Thank God agreement of this is at an extremely low percent, but this needs to end. That kid doesn't know what any of it means, he's following.
