Rejected #BamaRush Transgender Can’t Figure Out How Tampons Work

I keep forgetting that the word “woman” apparently means nothing these days. 

Grant Sikes, a 23-year-old male-to-female transgender student at the University of Alabama became popular over the summer when he decided to rush for a spot in a Bama sorority. He documented his journey on TikTok and gained millions of views and followers. But his latest video showed just how un-womanly he really is. 

Grant hopped on a trend that another male-to-female transgender “influencer,” Dylan Mulvaney, started where they document each day of “girlhood.” They say thinks like “day 10 of being a girl and today …” You get the gist. On Wednesday he posted his day 12 video where he went to Target to purchase tampons and had no idea whatsoever how they worked … despite being a "female." 

“Day 12 of being a girl and we’re gonna go buy tampons,” he began. Here’s where my jaw began to drop. 

Then he got back in his car to show off his new purchase. “Ummmm … I think these are like little dots to see how much you flow is what somebody said online … I don’t know so let’s do an unboxing.”

His tone was not only annoying but also comes across as pretty b***hy. Maybe he is a girl after all. 

He continued asking numerous questions to the camera like “that just hangs out inside you?” “how do you get it out?” “where does the string go?” etc. 

Who’s gonna tell him that he’s never gonna need to use one of those bad boys? 

Nonetheless, when another user commented “wait why do you need those?” Sikes replied “For me?” as if that was obvious.

Supposedly though he bought them for other (actual menstruating women) to use like other trannies have done. Mulvaney, the most popular trans woman on TikTok, has done the same thing. Once he was spotted on the streets passing them out to women. Unironically, he never passed any to men even though he feels the need to have them as a biological man. On day 75 of his “girlhood” he said he’d been carrying tampons and pads for the past two months but never opened them.

Keep in mind, our nation is currently in a tampon shortage and its probably in part due to the fact that “women” who don’t need them are buying out the stores. 

Tampax, the brand Sikes bought, was under fire last week when the hashtag #BoycottTampax began trending. The company tweeted (since deleted) “You're in their DMs. We're in them. We are not the same,” which has been called out all over the internet for sexualizing women. There have also been rumors of paid collaborations with Tampax and transgender women. 

Coming from an actual woman, this feels like a mockery. It appears that Sikes, and men like him, are making fun of what it is to be a woman and Tampax is not helping.
