Right-wing extremists against a trans woman, 25, who has been documenting her gender transition on TikTok. And Sen. Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee took part in this hate campaign they launched.

GOP Senator Targets TikTok Influencer

Sen. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., is the most prominent and most recent conservative to attack a 25-year-old TikTok celebrity in what appears to be a hate campaign against transgender people.

The Republican member stated, “Dylan Mulvaney, Joe Biden, and radical left-wing lunatics want to make this absurdity normal,” in a tweet that included a transgender woman’s TikTok video.

Mulvaney, whose TikTok channel documents her gender transition, says transgender women shouldn’t feel pressured to stay away from wearing tight pants or tuck their penises in the accompanying video, titled “Day 74 of girlhood.” She contends that society should accept trans women with noticeable bulges in their crotch area as natural.

Blackburn’s office did not immediately answer an inquiry for comment. President Joe Biden was the subject of an interview by Mulvaney, who has more than 8.4 million TikTok followers, last week for the news organization NowThis News, which focuses on social media. She was one of six activists who spoke with the president about various topics, such as gun control and climate change. The exchanges were made public on Sunday.

Mulvaney pressed Biden on whether she thought states should have the authority to forbid the provision of gender-affirming medical treatment during her interview with the president.

Mulvaney pressed Biden on whether she thought states should have the authority to forbid the provision of gender-affirming medical treatment during her interview with the president.

Biden declared, “I don’t think any state or anyone should have the right to do that.” “I just think it’s wrong as a moral concern and as a legal question,” the speaker said.

Several well-known conservatives, including Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel and Rep. Marjorie Taylor Green, R-Ga., shared the roughly six-minute interview with Biden, which went viral in right-wing online communities and sparked a barrage of derogatory and anti-transgender rhetoric directed at Mulvaney.

Congressman Mulvaney’s tweet contains a video of a transgender woman singing on TikTok, a popular short-form video app. Transgender people have been stereotyped and demonized by conservative politicians for years. Still, this tweet is particularly offensive because it shows a trans woman dancing and singing in her underwear. The fact that she is wearing underwear suggests that Congressmen Mulvaney believes trans women are inherently sexualized.

This is not the first time Congressman Mulvaney has used his platform to spread misinformation about transgender rights. In 2017, he tweeted that “the left” was trying to normalize gender identity disorder (GID). Transgender people are constantly targeted by society, but now the world is taking steps for their rights. In that case, these remarks from the senator are unacceptable. 

The Republican Party has used similar rhetoric before: Donald Trump called transgender people a “burden” in his 2016 presidential campaign. He repeated this claim during his presidency despite facing significant backlash from the public and members of his party over the issue.

This kind of speech is dangerous because it dehumanizes people based on their gender identity or sexual orientation without regard for their humanity or individual rights. It also encourages others to create an environment where discrimination against marginalized groups can flourish without consequence or accountability from those responsible for making it (e.g., politicians).
