Super-Straight (Sexual Orientation)

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki




The term "Super-Straight" refers to people that have romantic and sexual attractions or behaviors between cisgender persons of the opposite sex or gender. The term became widely spread across social media at the beginning of 2021 when Tik-Tok user Kyle Royce published a video of himself explaining that he was treated as a transphobic person because he refused to date a trans woman. In order to avoid being treated as such, he decided to "make a new sexuality" called Super-Straight. He later deleted the video of the platform, after several people threatened him and his family.

Spread[edit]

After the release of the original video, the February 21st, the term started to spread itself over social media. On March 1st, a subreddit called "r/SuperStraight" was created, quickly gaining multiple thousands of members. A week later, on March 6th, a Twitter user explained the term and claimed that the Super-Straight people were part of the LGBTQIA+ community, with the hashtag "#Superstraight". [1] Internet users created the flag of the movement, which consists of two squares, orange and black, put side by side. Afterward, the terms "Super-Gay" and "Super-Lesbian" started to be used as well.

Polemics[edit]

Shortly after the birth and the spread of the term, many people were offended, qualifying it as a transphobic movement made to divide LGBT people. Twitter and Tik-Tok users massively called-out the people that referred to themselves as "Super-Straight", saying it's "hidden transphobia" and that the overall movement doesn't make sense scientifically.[2] The term "Superphobia" and "Superphobic" were born as well, describing the people that hated and/or had disgust towards Super-Straight people. Kyle Royce - the original creator of the video - and his family were violently threatened, causing him to delete the video, which was shortly reuploaded to YouTube later on. Currently homeless, he has started a GoFundMe campaign, on March 7th, which already has gained more than $900.
