You can officially be “super straight” now. Which also makes you super transphobic, apparently.
One TikTok user has perfectly shut down a new transphobic trend of people “identifying as super straight”, claiming refusing to date trans people is an “orientation”.
The trend appears to have started with TikTok user @kyleroyce, who recently created a video in which he said: “Yo, guys, I made a new sexuality now, actually, it’s called super straight.
“Since straight people, or straight men like myself, I get called transphobic because I wouldn’t date a trans woman.”
The TikToker said he wouldn’t date a trans woman because “that’s not a real woman to me, like, I want a real woman”.
“Now, I’m super straight,” he added. “I only date the opposite gender, woman, that are born woman. So you can’t say I’m transphobic now because that’s just my sexuality.”
Although it seems highly unlikely that any trans woman has ever wanted to date @kyleroyce, the hateful trend began to spread to other social media platforms.
The original video has been removed, and the TikTok user claims he has been banned from posting on the platform, but his video is being shared by others also claiming to “identify as super straight”.
