The latest example comes from Forbes, who headlined its annual Power Women’s Summit with a biological male, reported Rebel News.
The “exclusively female” event starred Dylan Mulvaney, an actor, comedian, online personality, and man who wears women’s clothing.
Forbes said Mulvaney was one of three “standout examples in how to leverage social platforms to break the entry barriers for mainstream ‘traditional’ media like TV and film, comedy and fashion.”
Dylan has been documenting Dylan’s journey to “being a girl” for a few months now. Tripping over in heels, borrowing tampons, giggling and wearing lipstick. Why is Forbes pandering like this? It’s downright sickening https://t.co/KLDsocA3fB

“People want to put you in a box,” Mulvaney said. “That’s where we’re at in the industry right now is we’re watching people do so many different things, and that’s what’s special about these applications and using them to our advantage.”
“You start working with some of the biggest brands in the world and start launching your own businesses,” Mae Karwowski, CEO of the marketing agency Obviously, admitted during the summit. “It’s just a real path to entrepreneurship.”
Mulvaney has been documenting his transitions on TikTok, where he has gained nearly 1 billion followers. Each video is marked with his current “transition” day.
Those days are currently fewer than 200. Yet, Mulvaney spoke to an audience of women about the struggles they face and offered his opinions on how they should improve their lives.
Commentator Matt Walsh was quick to call out the hypocrisy. “The Forbes Women’s Summit invited this person to speak. This is what @Forbes thinks of women,” he tweeted.
Mulvaney’s appearance continues the trend of choosing biological men to lead in spaces reserved for women in the name of equality. Lia Thomas was recently nominated the NCAA Woman of the Year after he dominated women’s swimming competitions. Alana McLaughlin, another biological male, also made headlines after severely beating other female MMA opponents.
