TikTok celebrity Dylan Mulvaney has strayed from his usual format of delivering an exaggerated and insulting performance of womanhood and instead released a video avoiding the topic of gender entirely and declaring himself to be a human.
Filmed on “day 9610 of being a human,” Mulvaney explains to his millions of young followers that he’s been offline for a few weeks. This social media break coincides with the Bud Light controversy, during which the beer company’s sales plummeted after releasing a special edition can with Mulvaney’s face on it.
Speaking to his almost 30 million social media followers, Mulvaney tells of having a difficult childhood. “I was called feminine and over-the-top, and here I am now being called all those same things again, but this time it’s from other adults.”
Mulvaney explains that he’s just a theater person and he’s camp, and that’s just his personality. This appears to be his justification for his year-long performance of an over-the-top ditsy woman during which he has been sponsored by numerous brands, met with President Biden to discuss trans rights and children having access to experimental sex changes, and featured on a podcast with another man to discuss The Beauty of Girlhood.
Giving an emotional performance of victimhood, Mulvaney says he is struggling to understand the need to dehumanize and be cruel.
“You know, dehumanization has never fixed anything in history ever,” says the performance artist who shot to internet stardom by reducing womanhood to an insulting set of stereotypes.
Mulvaney said he grew up in a religious, conservative family, and that he is trying very hard to hold on to his faith. He describes himself as “very privileged” because he still has the love and support of his family.
“What I'm interested in is getting back to making people laugh and to never stop learning,” concludes Mulvaney. “And going forward. I want to share parts of myself on here that have nothing to do with my identity. And I'm hoping those parts will still be exciting to you and will be enough.”
“I don't know if reincarnation is a thing, but in my next life, I would love to be someone non-confrontational and uncontroversial. God That sounds nice.”
Whatever Mulvaney’s motivation was for starting his 100 Days of Girlhood series, his meteoric rise to stardom has likely contributed to the surging numbers of young people identifying as transgender.
Psychiatric conditions are socially contagious, and a celebrity publicly sharing their experience has been observed to create a wave of young people suffering from the same disorder. In the 1990s, when Princess Diana spoke openly about her battle with bulimia, eating disorder clinics saw a surge of teenage girls and young women presenting with the disorder.
The reality TV show I Am Jazz first aired in 2015, which coincides with gender clinics around the world seeing an enormous spike in children and adolescents seeking medical sex changes. There is a scene in Season 2, Episode 4, filmed in 2016, where Jazz and his mother visit a local high school that all of a sudden had 10 or 12 teens come out as transgender, all of whom viewers are told were inspired by Jazz.
The message Mulvaney’s insulting caricature of woman sends to young people is that attention, fame, and adoration can be gained by adopting a transgender identity. Mulvaney promotes taking cross-sex hormones and has had facial feminisation surgery, and most recently facial fillers. It is surely more likely that the backlash he is now facing is the result not of his “camp” and theatrical nature, but because of the terrible example he is setting to young people.
