What’s it take to make it on Forbes’ 30 Under 30 List of notable young people?

Well, you could be a brilliant physician who’s developing AI tech to treat cancer, like this guy.

You could be a Ph.D who creates new designs for aircraft used by NASA, like this dude here.

Or, you know, if making actual contributions to the world seems a little too stressful, you could always just be a man who snags the spotlight by throwing in some pigtails and dressing up like a little girl on the internet. Because that’s all it took to catapult Dylan Mulvaney to fame and fortune, landing this (still) biological male on a slew of notable lists, award shows, and, most recently, Forbes’ 30 Under 30.

Forbes' profile on Mulvaney includes a photo of him, complete with full makeup, blonde hair, and a sparkly blue dress, grinning at the camera as Forbes gushes, "The actress and LGBTQ+ activist gained viral fame with her "Days of Girlhood" TikTok series, which documented her gender transition and drew more than 1 billion views."

"Mulvaney, who was named a 2023 Forbes Top Creator and raked in an estimated $2 million in earnings last year, found herself at the center of an unexpected political crossfire after Bud Light paid her to post a video featuring a custom beer with her face on the can, sparking a widespread boycott of the brand," the profile continues, not adding that the boycott tanked the company and resulted in the firing of multiple top executives.

Mulvaney rose to prominence for documenting his “Days of Girlhood,” in which he chronicled his “transition” to being a woman - which included a plethora of particularly disturbing photos and videos of him dressed up not only as female, but as a young girl, all while giving weird tutorials on feminine hygiene products and make-up application. In a video interview with Forbes, Mulvaney said he was grateful to have gotten his start on Instagram, as social media "launches people in a way that no other mainstream media can."

Forbes said they curated their “30 Under 30” list “With the help of nominations from the public – as well as expertise from Forbes tech journalists and judges from all corners of creatordom,” saying the list “highlights the young founders, industry leaders and online stars transforming the creator economy and future of the internet.”

Which apparently includes lonely and attention-seeking dudes willing to slap on a dress and flaunt their gender delusion.
