Trans TikTok star Dylan Mulvaney responds to Caitlyn Jenner’s ‘pretty evil’ misgendering
Trans TikTok sensation Dylan Mulvaney has responded to Caitlyn Jenner’s anti-trans comments against her.
The social media sensation took no prisoners when responding to Jenner – who misgendered and ridiculed her in several tweets – saying “it told me everything I needed to know about you” in a TikTok clip.
In the five-minute video, which was also part of her daily vlog journey after coming out as a trans woman, Mulvaney eloquently explained why she no longer had any interest in levelling with Jenner.
“A trans person invalidating another trans person’s transness is pretty evil in my eyes,” Mulvaney said. “Like, the call is coming from inside the house! It’s coming off as very selfish.
“Is no one else allowed to be trans?” she added.

Jenner first interacted with Mulvaney’s content after senator Marsha Blackburn responded to day 74 of Mulvaney’s vlog with: “Radical left-wing lunatics want to make this absurdity normal.”
The former Olympian replied to Blackburn’s tweet thanking her and claiming that Mulvaney’s post was “absurdity!”
But after a commenter pleaded with Jenner to “delete this hateful tweet”, she responded by misgendering Mulvaney, saying: “[she] is talking about [her] penis!”
After noticing the tweets, Mulvaney explained in her response that, while the initial response to Blackburn by Jenner didn’t phase her, the subsequent misgendering was a step too far.
“Not you calling me a he! That is just, oh, terrible,” she said.
He is talking about his penis!

She then explained that the initial video – which saw Mulvaney explain her difficulties with tucking – was simply another step in her journey as a trans woman, and that everyone experiences difficulties along the way.
“If you can think back to your early days of transitioning and remember being embarrassed about your body or having strangers give you dirty looks – that’s why I made that video, because I was embarrassed and I wanted to reclaim my body in a positive way,” she added.
In fact, Jenner has previously spoken up about her difficulties donning new clothes during her transition. The ex-spouse of Kris Jenner admitted it took her a while to find swimsuits comfortable during an episode of I Am Cait.
After experimenting with various styles, she settled on a white one-piece that she described as “freeing” – a feeling Mulvaney likely felt after her trans friends introduced her to tucking underwear as she explained in her video.
Caitlyn Jenner: LGBTQ+ community are ‘intolerant’
After the LGBTQ+ community called her out for blatantly misgendering a trans person, Caitlyn Jenner posted a series of tweets where she called the queer community “hateful” and “dangerous”.
“I have never received more death threats, death threats to my team, nasty hate mail than this week,” she said. “It is all from the so-called ‘inclusive’ LGBTQ+ community.
“I am so disgusted by the hateful individuals threatening my life for giving my opinions on news topics of the day.”

In several more tweets, the celebrity continued to claim that misgendering a trans woman for vlogging was simply her “opinion”, while saying that “being an outspoken common sense conservative” in queer spaces is “dangerous”.
While members of the LGBTQ+ community sympathised with the death threats Jenner had received over the debacle, they reiterated that ridiculing a trans woman for simply speaking about an issue most trans women face was morally repugnant.
“YOU… of all people misgendering a phenomenal & eloquent & kind trans woman was the final straw for me,” one user said.
Another said: “You made it pretty clear you don’t want to be ‘included’ when you publicly trashed another trans person. Why should we welcome you if that’s how you treat us?”
