Since becoming Bud Light’s worst nightmare, transgender online content creator Dylan Mulvaney has been looking for a new gig, and he’s recently set his sights on college campuses as an available speaker for the upcoming school year. Beyond the very real possibility that school administrations may be reluctant to touch him with a ten-foot pole to avoid drama with donors and parents, Mulvaney’s topic of ‘expertise’ is also very questionable. Here’s what you need to know:
In a recent social media post, Mulvaney advertised himself as speaker material with a message reading, “University and college friends! I am booking speaking opportunities for the upcoming 23/24 school year and would love to come visit.” He also left his booker’s email, admonishing followers it was for “serious inquiries” only. According to the Daily Mail, for the price of $40,000 a speech, Mulvaney said topics would include diversity, equity and inclusion; LGBTQ advocacy; social media; and women’s empowerment.
Huh. Is that not considered ‘mansplaining’ anymore — a man informing a woman about something when in reality she knows much more about it than him?
Mulvaney has been calling himself a woman (or a “girl” rather) since March 3, 2022, just a little over a year ago when he began a Tik Tok video series he titled “Days of Girlhood.” Wanting to document himself “becoming a girl,” Mulvaney’s videos often embrace the negative stereotypes of women as proof of his “girlhood,” including crying three times a day, becoming a “bimbo,” writing angry emails and never sending them, shopping all the time and buying unaffordable items, etc.
As Daily Wire conservative commentator Matt Walsh pointed out, we should be more concerned about the fact that this man who is close to 30-years-old (Mulvaney will be 27 this year) is painting himself as an adolescent girl. But even more to the point, it’s doubtful any female would consider these traits hallmarks of their womanhood — yet we are supposed to consider him a good source to speak on women’s empowerment? And will that even include abortion as many lump that violence in with “women’s empowerment?”
(Watch the video below to see how abortion is NOT women’s empowerment.)
As we consider who should be talking to women about true womanhood, let us take a note from the classic novelist Jane Austen, who believed in the equality of men and women — not their abolition.
In her work Persuasion, a conversation ensued between two characters in which a man (Captain Harville) said, “I do not think I ever opened a book in my life which had not something to say upon woman’s inconstancy…But perhaps you will say, these were all written by men.” His female companion, Anne Elliot, replied, “Perhaps I shall. Yes, yes, if you please, no reference to examples in books. Men have had every advantage of us in telling their own story…the pen has been in their hands.”
Let’s put the ‘pen in better hands’ like Students for Life of America (SFLA) President Kristan Hawkins who is a great choice for a quality campus speaker on real issues. Each school semester, she hosts a new speaking tour which makes stops across the country. Past tour topics have included “Lies Pro-Choicers Believe,” “Make Abortion Illegal Again,” “The Future Is Anti-Abortion,” “Lies Feminists Tell,” etc.
If you’re interested in having Hawkins come speak at your campus, stay tuned for the announcement of her Fall 2023 Speaking Tour topic and apply to host her at your school. As a woman who supports and empowers both born and preborn women, she’s a much better option.
