Dylan Mulvaney can’t seem to stay out of the news.
The transgender influencer has been sponsored by every company from Tampax to Bud Light and is now promoting yet another brand: Maybelline.
Mulvaney posted a video of himself lathering his face in Maybelline makeup, where he covers up his “five-o-clock freakin’ shadow” — as Sara Gonzales of "The News & Why It Matters" puts it.
“Is that really like where the makeup companies are going? Is like, ‘Our foundation is so good we can cover up your beard stubble' — because I just don’t feel like that’s a smart advertising strategy when your primary base are freaking women,” Gonzales comments.
Many people believe that Mulvaney is not just entering women’s spaces, but mocking them while doing it.
Gonzales says women have been told to “smash the patriarchy” and “get rid of all of these men who are defeating women,” yet this is clearly “a man coming into a woman’s space.”
She adds that it’s not just women who should feel targeted but that it’s “obvious that they are targeting children — the movement, not every single gay person out there — but the movement itself is targeting children.”
According to a new Gallup study, there has been an increase in people identifying as LGBT. Currently 7.2% of adults in the United States identify as something other than straight or heterosexual.
This number has doubled since Gallup first measured LGBT identification in 2012.
While that number is shocking, the percentage of Gen Zers who identify as LGBT is even more so.
Nearly 20% of those born between 1994 and 2004 claim to be LGBT.
Gonzales asks, “Does that not go hand in hand with society saying ‘Hey, let’s put this on kids. Let’s introduce this to kids. Let’s show kids this lifestyle?’”
