A trans-exclusionary trolling trend has been quickly tamped down on TikTok. The so-called “superstraight” movement is supposedly a new sexual orientation of straight people who refuse to date trans people.
It appears that super straight can be traced back to the TikToker Kyleroyce, who on February 21 posted a video titled “who else is super straight?” The deleted video, which has been reuploaded to YouTube, shows the content creator sitting in a car, sharing his thoughts with the hashtags “sexuality” and “funny.” The video pulled in over a million views before the creator took it down, saying in a comment that others had “sent death threats to my mom over it.” In the video, the creator is explicit about coining the term because he was tired of being called transphobic.
The Reddit forum on the subject was also banned.
