U. Alabama transgender student rejected by all sororities can’t figure out how tampons work

‘How do you get it out? Where does the string go?’

Remember the University of Alabama transgender student who was rejected by every sorority “she” rushed?

The allegedly female TikTok influencer apparently doesn’t know how to use one of the most female of products — a tampon.

Grant Sikes was turned down by 19 sororities at UA which the student documented on the social media video platform. Sikes called the rejections “extremely upsetting” and “sad,” but was “hopeful for a future where everyone is welcomed for just being themselves.”

According to Newsbusters, Sikes now is emulating Dylan Mulvaney, a “trans actress, comedian and content creator” who recently got an audience with President Biden. Sikes is documenting every day of “girlhood” and day 12 brought about some, er, consternation: After a visit to Target to purchase some tampons, Sikes didn’t know how they worked.

“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,” Sikes says in the video (below).

“That just hangs out inside you?” Sikes asks. “How do you get it out? Where does the string go?”

When someone asked in the video comment section “Wait, why do you need those?” Sikes replied “For me?”

The reactions to the Libs of TikTok thread were a bit more colorful:
