Gender is “whatever you want it to be”?

It wouldn't be the "in thing" if celebrities weren't in on it, right? Unfortunately many would answer yes to that especially the younger generation. The new "in thing" is to opt out of using gender specific pronouns. "Hunger Games" movie star Amandla Stenberg is the latest one to join the move saying that gender can be "whatever you want it to be".

In an interview with People magazine the "Hunger Games" actress Amandla Stenberg says she rejects the traditional concept of gender, claiming instead that it is a construct that can be “pretty much whatever you want it to be.”

“I tend to believe that gender as we’ve set it up in current-day society doesn’t actually exist,” Stenberg told People magazine in an interview. “I’ve said before that I’m comfortable with using the pronouns ‘they’ or ‘them’ alongside ‘she’ and ‘her’ just because that’s a conversation that’s important to me.”

“I don’t necessarily always prescribe to female pronouns just because I don’t think that pronouns are necessarily very meaningful,” Stenberg continued.

It isn't really clear how not using the biologically appropriate pronoun is meaningful in any way, but certainly seems to be a trend so celebrities are expected to jump on the train rather quickly. Of course the actress is openly bisexual so that contributes to her support for the gender-neutral agenda. 

According to Breitbart News, in July 2015, Stenberg accused the media of ignoring and disparaging black females, arguing that they make “black women [into] objects of fetishism and brutality,” and advocated support for the Black Lives Matter movement.
