Trans Activist Dylan Mulvaney Calls Out Caitlyn Jenner For Transphobic Comments



Trans actress and activist Dylan Mulvaney has just given us a masterclass on how to call out the bullies of the world with patience and grace.


The 25 year old has gained immense popularity on TikTok thanks to her popular series 'Days of Girlhood,' where she details her transition journey as a trans woman.


But despite her videos being nothing but positive, heartwarming and joyful content - Caitlyn Jenner decided to use her Twitter platform to shame Dylan.


The former athlete and reality star shared a video of Dylan talking about her experience wearing tight shorts at a mall and people starring at her bulge.



Dylan's video was about the importance of normalising women sometimes having bulges.


Yet Caitlyn told her 3.4 million Twitter followers that Dylan was "exposing her genitals" in public.


In addition she also misgendered Dylan as someone who "is talking about his penis."



Dylan responded to the comments with a TikTok video directed to Caitlyn Jenner.


"'I'm just curious if you can think back to your early days of transitioning and remember being embarrassed about your body, or having strangers give your dirty looks," she said, "that's why I made that video because I was embarrassed and I wanted to reclaim my body in a positive way."


Since being "publicly degraded" by Caitlyn on Twitter, Dylan has been on the receiving end of immense transphobia.


"You personally subjected me to thousands and thousands of hateful eyes - a number of which could very well want to hurt me, and that's how much power you have," she said, "nearly every day this week I've been called a freak, a child predator and absurdity - I'm none of those things that your cohorts are painting me to be."



She said "this whole situation makes her not want to share" future surgical plans with her followers.


"A trans person invalidating another trans person's transness is pretty evil in my eyes," she said, "it's coming off very selfish - is no one else allowed to be trans?"


Dylan urged her followers not to send any hate to Caitlyn.


She said she hopes to use this opportunity to create positive change in the LGBTQIA+ community.


"You know we have a lot of potential for positive change the two of us," said Dylan, "or we can make it a hell of a lot worse for all of them - so which is it gonna be?"

Caitlyn has yet to apologise and claims an employee "haphazardly misgendered Dylan in the tweet."


A representative for Caitlyn Jenner told the Washington Examiner, the team "deeply regret the comment and have taken appropriate actions to rectify the situation internally."



Despite this statement the harmful transphobic comment has yet to be deleted on Twitter.
