The 'super straight' campaign taking over TikTok is actually just ugly transphobic...

An amusing, if somewhat niche bit of news i came across recently with the so called 'super straight' identity taking hold.
Obviously its patently absurd. However, what its in response to seems to be a relatively fair point. With some weird types calling people so called "transphobes" for saying they wouldnt sleep with someone who identifies as a female (or male depending on whom you are i guess). A truly moronic accusation to call someone a transphobe for not wanting to hook up with a biological man. Alas, this is the end result of such weirdness that you get deliberately offensive trolling in this vein in response to it.

Idiots to the left, idiots to the right - in more ways than one it would seem.

This feels like a 4chan stunt for the levels of absurdity. Either way it is Grade A trolling and I love it.

Not dating/hooking up with trans people because of genital preferences = not transphobia
Creating a whole sexuality just to emphasise that fact that you are a ~ p u r e ~ hetero and would never date those vile men dressed as women - transphobia

It'll probably blow over soon, and taking it too seriously is probably a mistake (see Pridefall), but yes it's obviously transphobic.

It has all the hallmarks of a 4chan troll.

If it's serious, this is the stupidest **** I've seen in months.

Careful Mr Napp...

You will attract attention and comments by Mr Foitre who will then accuse you of being a transphobic individual...

I've tried being Super Straight, but so far no woman will indulge my demands to shout about how much I hate big willies in all my places during sex. I feel somehow less of a man without this reassurance.

When you start equating things like that with transphobia it seems like a perfectly logical reaction.

Ah i havent seen him in a while, i wonder if he finally found something better to do than abusing students and co :lol:
Either way, it more seems to be a badge of honour if that particular individual "calls you out" as it always seems to mean you're talking sense as opposed to their scientifically illiterate propaganda. Whether you are "pro" or "anti" trans (as he seems to think people must be) the one thing tha can be said is that the comments made by him do a great job of alienating anyone else who usually couldnt give a toss one way or the other.
After all, i really couldnt care less if someone wants to identify as whatever they so wish, i simply take umbrage when you have unpalatable people like that telling you what you will think and if you dont agree 100% youre apparently a so called "transphobe".

it means someone is so straight they couldn't possibly be attracted to a trans person.

having preference isn't inherently transphobic, but creating a movement to specifically target trans people absolutely is.

Thanks.
I have absolutely no opinion on this whatsoever.

Certain boards are but not all boards were created equally.

I am see conflicting reports on that, suggesting they just picked up on it and ran with it.
