R&B singer Ginuwine is being dragged through the mud online for not kissing a trans-woman on Celebrity Big Brother. India Willoughby came for Ginuwine & his lips while sitting next to him on the couch. The singer told her repeatedly that he would not date a trans-woman and then leaned in & tried to kiss him! Ginuwine turned away and expressed his disinterest. Once the clip hit the internet folks began calling the singer 'transphobic', but is he really transphobic for not being attracted to transgender women? Is he obligated to kiss a person simply because they want to kiss him? Black Twitter came to his aid & defended the singer for his personal preference. Is Ginuwine wrong or nah? I say no! I mean those are his lips... but, what do you think?
Okay i dont mean to be offensive but why do trans and gays get offended, and try to get straight men in trouble if they aren't attracted to them? #CBB #Ginuwine respect his sexuality if you want yours to be respected by others.— Ling Xiaoyu (@goodbihgonebad) January 8, 2018
Why is Ginuwine “under fire” for refusing a kiss from a trans woman?— NUFF (@nuffsaidNY) January 8, 2018
Isn’t the whole purpose of the #MeToo movement to fight for people’s right to say “No” to unwanted sexual advances?
“No” means “No”.
Conversation is one thing, but when the trans woman started trying to get some sugar from Ginuwine, it crossed into sexual harassment.— 🌹 Ferrari Sheppard (@stopbeingfamous) January 9, 2018
okay, so lemme get this right: Ginuwine is ASKED if he’d ever date a trans woman. He RESPONDS no. The trans woman asking then IGNORES both his stated preferences and his agency and TRIES TO KISS Ginuwine, which he rejects.— RODNEY BLU (@RodneyBlu) January 9, 2018
and all this makes Ginuwine transphobic?
