Daily Wire host Matt Walsh ripped into transgender TikTok influencer Dylan Mulvaney on Tuesday for trying to claim the mantle of womanhood after shedding himself of his masculinity.
Mulvaney gained notoriety online for his “Days of Girlhood” series, which features him talking about different aspects of womanhood. In one of his latest videos, Day 335, Mulvaney wears heels, a black and white dress, red lipstick, and hair extensions, declaring himself “the hottest” he’ll ever look in his whole life. And Walsh saw right through it.
“You have successfully shed whatever parts of you were masculine perhaps at least on the surface, nobody would ever describe you as masculine or manly.” Walsh said. “But your femininity quotient has not increased at a rate commensurate with the loss of your masculinity. You may not be masculine, but you also aren’t feminine. Instead, you are weird and artificial. You are manufactured and lifeless. You are unearthly and eerie. You are like some kind of human deepfake.”

In the TikTok video, Mulvaney also declared for the camera that he looked like he could “steal a husband,” but promised he would “never do that” because he is a “girl’s girl.” Walsh said he was speaking up to defend women, noting that he has a wife and two daughters, so he takes Mulvaney’s performance personally.
“Dylan Mulvaney is intentionally degrading women every time he does this woman-face minstrel show routine,” Walsh said. “He is insulting and demeaning them and doing it on purpose and profiting off of it, and he doesn’t care.”
“Dylan, if that is the most attractive you will ever look, then I don’t even want to imagine what you’ll look like when you’re at your ugliest,” he continued. “You do not pass as an attractive woman or as a woman at all. Even with 50 lbs of makeup and plastic surgery and clever lighting tricks, even then, you still cannot escape what you really are and what you will always be.”
In the past, Mulvaney’s exaggerated social media performance and history in theatre had many speculating that he was pulling an elaborate joke or making a commentary on society. That speculation, however, seemed to die down after Mulvaney dramatically revealed he had facial feminization surgery — which can include removing or reshaping tissue or bone.
“I’m so happy, and it’s still me, it’s just a little bit softer of a version,” Mulvaney said after the surgery. “And I just hope that all trans and nonbinary people can get the gender-affirming resources that they need because this is life-changing and sometimes life-saving.”
Mulvaney’s viral videos have attracted so much attention that he was invited to the White House to meet with President Joe Biden to “ask him a few questions surrounding trans issues in the United States” and talk to him about “transness.”
