California just became the first state to mandate female directors on their boards. A biological man who identifies as a woman just became a world champion in a women's cycling event in California. Sounds like a complicated time to be a woman, especially in the Golden State.
Perhaps that's why YouTuber Elijah Schaffer, born a straight white male, decided to identify as black gay woman, at least for a little while.
All decked out in his new identity, Schaffer headed to the beach to ask fellow Californians for their thoughts on gender fluidity, gender identity, and gender politics.
Their answers will surprise you.
Try not to laugh as you watch the video below:
