While there are a plethora of issues to be addressed, Vice President Kamala Harris thought her time would be better spent praising a transgender TikTok star Dylan Mulvaney for being an ‘inspiration’ to young people.
According to an Instagram post by Mulvaney over the weekend, Harris wrote him a letter thanking him for his advocacy.
In the letter dated March 13, 2023, Harris gushed, “Ms. Mulvaney, thank you for courageously sharing your story and your journey. I appreciate your continued advocacy for transgender equality, including during your visit to the White House last year.”
Through your work as an activist and advocate for the LGBTQI+ community, you continue to break barriers and inspire young people across our Nation and around the world.
While we have made incredible progress from advancing marriage equality to enacting historic protections for transgender people the fight is far from over. Our Administration stands with the LGBTOI+ community in the ongoing struggle for true equity and equality and against hate and discrimination in all forms.
I am grateful for your dedication and courage, and I hope you continue to use your platform to spread positivity and create change. I look forward to seeing all that you will accomplish in the future.

The letter was to allegedly congratulate the 26-year-old man for his one-year anniversary of his “Days of Girlhood” series, in which he posted his journey of transitioning and living as a woman.
As a woman who stumbled across his videos in the past, they were quite cringey and not worthy of a comment, let alone a letter. In one video, I remember him crying about cramps and his “period.”
The man is obviously extremely mentally ill considering he will never, and I mean never, have a period or experience menstrual cramps. This type of behavior does not need to be enabled and glamorized. It is extremely dangerous to make young people think this type of mental illness is acceptable.
Instead of praising him, maybe Harris should reach out and offer Mulvaney the psychiatric help he truly needs.
