If you have been on social media recently, you might have possibly come upon a new term that is polarizing. The term in question is ‘super straight’ and it is defined by those who are using it as dating someone of the opposite sex who was born that way.
According to Distractify, a TikTok user by the name of Kyle Royce appeared to be the first person to coin the term ‘super straight’ in a video that was pulled from the platform. However, the video was reposted to Twitter.
The trend has taken on a life of its own on TikTok with the hashtag, ‘#superstraight’ receiving over 116 million views.
A Twitter used named AntiFash Gordon posted a tweet with a screenshot of a thread from the website 4chan which appears to instruct users to do the exact tactics that are occurring on both TikTok and Twitter.
Many have responded to the trend by calling out those who identify themself as ‘super straight’ as transphobic.
