Biden Says 8-Year-Olds Are Old Enough To Decide Their Own Gender

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden said he believes children as young as 8 years old should be able to decide their own gender.

During his ABC News Town Hall, Biden was asked by a member of the audience, who said she has an 8-year-old transgender, how he would protect the rights of the LGBTQ community.

“How will you, as president, reverse this dangerous and discriminatory agenda and ensure that the lives and rights of LGBTQ people are protected under U.S law?” she asked Biden.

“I would just flat-out change the law. I would eliminate [Trump’s] executive orders, number one,” Biden responded, before proceeding to share a memory of when he saw a gay couple in his youth.

“I turn to my dad and my dad looked at me and said, ‘Joey, it’s simple. They love each other,’” he said.

Biden then affirmed that he believed 8-year-olds were old enough to determine their own gender: “The idea that an 8-year-old child or a 10-year-old child decides you know, I decided 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.”
