Days since hearing Dylan Mulvaney’s name: 0.

Mulvaney, who gained his fame by parading around as a six-year-old and documenting his “days of girlhood” on TikTok, won the Breakthrough Creator award at Sunday night’s Streamy Awards where, naturally, he used the occasion to call out transphobia. 

Mulvaney wore a red satin minidress for the awards event, which recognizes social media content creators. Luckily, he tucked well enough that the straight-on camera angle didn’t display his male genitalia. He also wore matching heels - which I guess they make in men's sizes too, these days. 

If you watch closely, you can also see Mulvaney pulling up his strapless dress, likely because he doesn't have the boobs to hold it up for him. Actually, toward the end of the video, his dress ends up slipping a bit and exposing what looks like prosthetic, stick-on boobs - though I can't confirm that, nor do I wanna get close enough to double-check.

“My life has been changed for the better but also there's been an extreme amount of transphobia and hate and I know that my community is feeling it and I know that even our allies are feeling it," Mulvaney said during his acceptance speech.

Oh here we go with the dramatics!

He then went on to insist that there needs to be more support for trans people. Yes, Dylan, more people need to help feed your delusion. That makes total sense. 

Toward the end of his speech, Mulvaney compared the entire trans community to the content creator community. Which makes some sense - I mean yeah, they both think that they’re way more awesome than they actually are and make a living off of being professional narcissists. Literally, Mulvaney got famous by mocking women online and now he's getting awards for it too!

“I look around this room and I just see so many amazing allies that have platforms and I think allyship right now needs to look differently. You need to support trans people publicly and proudly," he said.

If you don’t remember, or somehow got it erased from your brain, Mulvaney is referring to the backlash he received after he partnered up with Bud Light for a marketing campaign to sell beer, which immediately sparked wild nationwide protests. I mean, the typical demographic for Bud Light drinkers is America-loving, country music-singing men...not men who frolic in dresses and wear lipstick.

The Bud Light ad ended up costing the company $27 billion and stripped it of its title of America's favorite beer - though frankly, it wasn’t Mulvaney in particular that people hated - it was the fact that numerous companies chose to promote him and his delusions over actual women or people who’d actually be relatable to consumers. 

Mulvaney was also bashed for pairing up with makeup brands and companies like Nike to promote sports bras. At the same time, Mulvaney became wildly popular among leftists and continues to be pushed as the face of "inclusion" and "diversity."

To that end, Mulvaney ended his thank you speech with a nod to Bud Light as a way to sort of say “F**k the haters, I’m still a winner.”

“I love you so much, thank you, thank you, I'm gonna go have a beer and... I love ya,” he said before walking off stage.

While the audience at least looked enthusiastic, people on Twitter were agitated with Mulvaney's mockery of womanhood.

"Man in womanface," one wrote, while another called the whole display a "clown show." One woman wrote, "The only thing he helped create is multiple boycotts."

True that.
