Yet another company that partnered with flamboyant “trans” media influencer Dylan Mulvaney is getting hit with boycott backlash (or am I expected to call it “girl-cott” backlash?) It’s the makeup giant Maybelline. Some are even calling for boycotting all the products of their parent company, L’oreal. Others pointed out the irony that Maybelline’s slogan is, “Maybe she’s born with it,” which Mulvaney definitely wasn’t.
While Bud Light’s customers are mostly male, Maybelline’s are female, and they’re offended by the Mulvaney deal for totally different reasons. They say it’s insulting to women, that Mulvaney is not a woman but a male who “portrays women as ditzy bimbos,” and that it’s not an unfair representation of real women who work, run homes and take care of children.
Social media figure Allie Beth Stuckey tweeted that we now have grown men telling actual women “what it’s like to be a girl, as if they could have any earthly idea.” And Madeleine Kearns said in National Review, “Perhaps the greatest silver lining of the transgender movement has been how it exposes the follies of disregarding sex and sexual difference. ‘Womanface’ is the new blackface. It’s time to get outraged.”
On a related note, I saw an interesting interview with a priest who noted how many of today’s major news stories seem to come right out of Genesis, with humans claiming the right and ability to create life (cloning, AI), to end life (abortion), and to assign genders, all powers that are specifically reserved to God alone. Even if you don’t believe in the Bible, just reading Mary Shelley’s “Frankenstein,” which is actually an allegory about a doctor who tried to play God, would tell you this is heading down a very dark road.
If you think it’s an overstatement to suggest that today’s left is hostile to Biblical truth, check out this video.
Two Bibles kept in a private lounge for Arizona legislators started disappearing and being found hidden away under couch cushions or in the refrigerator. So security installed a camera. It captured Rep. Stephanie Stahl-Hamilton, a Democrat and ordained Presbyterian minister (!), hiding the Bibles under two sofas. When asked by a reporter why she did it, she just walked away.
Maybe it’s because that book contradicts virtually the entire Democratic Party Platform of 2023.
