Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) lashed out at “Madison Avenue ad agencies” this weekend after finding out that trans TikTok influencer Dylan Mulvaney may have gotten an ad deal with Tampax.
“Madison Avenue ad agencies and woke corporations are destroying the concept of womanhood,” Greene wrote. “They need to remember who their customers are. Real biological women.”
“And we refuse to be replaced by men.”

Greene linked an op-ed piece from the far-right website Human Events. In the piece, writer Sara Higdon misgenders Mulvaney and calls her “sexist” for using slang words to refer to genitalia.
Higdon goes after Tampax for buying ads on Mulvaney’s channel, a decision that makes sense as even a cursory glance at Mulvaney’s comments section shows that a large part of her fanbase is made up of women.
Higdon also attacks the makeup brand Ulta Beauty for including an interview with Mulvaney in its podcast series, as if trans women can’t use makeup.
On Twitter, people criticized Greene for being angry about a trans woman selling makeup.
Real women support all types of women. Any size, race, religion or sexuality.

You literally favor men making the decisions on what a woman can do with her uterus.

Women want a party who won’t vote to take away her rights – unlike your party who has vowed to do

You don't speak for me ! I'm perfectly fine with it. What I'm not fine with is you cherry-picking the Bible all day. How's your marriage going..

I thought ad agencies target people wa to g to buy their products, which likely includes people of many identities.

Marge really no men want to replace women Out of a string of ridiculous things you said that might be right up there at the top that being said it appears a lot of people want to replace you with someone who will actually represent all Americans
