Dylan Mulvaney, the transgender clout-chaser who’s killed Bud Light sales, would like you to know that he’s losing sleep over the fact he’s gotten the wrong sort of press for once.
In an appearance on the “Dear Schuyler” podcast earlier this week, titled “How do you find joy in the midst of hate?”, Mulvaney also said he had “grace” for his critics, hateful wretches though they may be.
The host was Schuyler Bailar, the first transgender athlete to compete on a NCAA Division I men’s team, so you can tell how this is going to skew.

“I remember, like, even in college — this was just a few years ago — like, if one person potentially didn’t like me, it would keep me up at night,” Mulvaney said. “I was like, ‘Oh God, how do I fix this?’ And now there are hundreds of thousands of people that do not like me, and I still sometimes can’t sleep.
