TikTok person completely shuts down transphobic ‘tremendous straight’ development
In a new TikTok transphobic trend, users claim refusing to date trans people is an “orientation”. (TikTok / Kyleroyce)
One TikTok user perfectly set a new transphobic trend in which people identify as “super straight”.
The trend seems to have started with TikTok user @kyleroyce, who recently made a video where he said, “Yo guys, I’ve created a new sexuality now, it’s actually called super straight.
“Being straight people or straight men like me, I’m called transphobic because I wouldn’t date a trans woman.”
The TikToker said he wouldn’t date a trans woman because “this isn’t a real woman to me, I want a real woman”.
“Now I’m super straight,” he added. “I only date the opposite sex, woman, the born woman. So you can’t say I’m transphobic now because that’s just my sexuality. “
Anyone else super straight? Great respect for this guy who creates something new. #superstraight pic.twitter.com/hdLdeV82xK

While it’s highly unlikely that a trans woman would ever want to date @kyleroyce, the hateful trend spread to other social media platforms.
The original video has been removed and the TikTok user claims he was banned from posting on the platform, but his video is shared by others who also claim to identify themselves as “Super Straight”.
One TikTok user explained perfectly why “Identify as Super Straight” doesn’t make sense.
Other social media users had to step in to explain why the trend is viciously transphobic and makes absolutely no sense as a TikToker provides the perfect answer.
User @procrasclass posted a video in response to a commenter who claims to be “super straight”.
He said, “Super straight means you think that men who date trans women are less straight, which means that trans women are men and therefore not real women. This is not only transphobic, but also scientifically imprecise. “
For all of the people who think #superstraight is a thing, please what that tiktok is

The TikTok user said it was “really funny” that transphobics claimed to be “super straight” and added, “You like women, but you exclude a whole group of women.
“If a plumber only works on shower drains and refuses to work on sinks, we don’t call them ‘super plumber’.
“If anything, you are ‘half straight’ or ‘just impaired’.”
