The Meaning of Mulvaney

After the makers of Bud Light beer partnered with trans TikTok “influencer” Dylan Mulvaney to promote their product to a presumably young, hip market niche, the cultural right reacted. Boycotts rarely work long term, and Anheuser-Busch says it has used various “influencers” to market its beer. Nevertheless, the brouhaha brings to light what Mulvaney is apparently influencing through Tiktok, and it looks a lot like promoting the transing of gender nonconforming gay boys. Andrew Sullivan takes a look.

And for those interested in the “brouhaha”:


Two Views

Added: I respect Guy Benson’s advice to be cautious about widespread blame, but I also don’t think we should ignore that the shooting happened amid calls by activists for action to stop “genocide” against trans people, including the recently enacted Tennessee law banning puberty blockers and transition surgery for minors.

More: Twitter is now blocking tweets showing trans activists’ calls for violence, including gun violence. While understandable, this move obscures how extreme some of these activists are.

This kind of rhetoric is so common it’s not longer shocking (but should be):

I don’t like having to share posts like these but we can’t pretend that these messages aren’t being spread by extremists.

Added: Shaking my head over this captured tweet from Arizona Democratic Gov. Katie Hobbs’ press secretary, posted just hours after the shooting (original removed by Twitter, understandably). Added: Press Secretary Josselyn Berry resigned on Wednesday, two days after the shooting. Why wasn’t she fired, or at least suspended, immediately after her vile post went up?

The New Mission

Organizations that were once at the forefront of the movement for gay and lesbian rights and social inclusion have morphed into something very different, following the achievement of legal equality for gays and lesbians, and for transgender people. In keeping with fashionable progressive-left trends, they’re now onboard with the war on the gender binary.

LGBTQ+ Activists and Journalist Allies Against Practice of Journalism (Addendum)

More on the response to the campaign against the New York Times by GLAAD, Human Rights Campaign, and others for (1) reporting on the medical transitioning of minors and including the critical views of doctors and detransitioners, and (2) running an op-ed defending J.K. Rowling for casting a critical eye on requiring that transmen, including men who simply present as women, be granted access to women-only spaces.

Protect Gender-Nonconforming Gay Kids from Medicalized Conversion Therapy

It still amazes, though probably it shouldn’t, how woke-progressive LGBTQ+ advocates have embraced medicalized conversion therapy for gay and lesbian kids who are gender nonconforming — and how they think their support for these procedures makes them morally superior, instead of morally monstrous.
