The internet is in an uproar over Ginuwine‘s decision to not kiss his trans co-star, India Willoughby, while filming Celebrity Big Brother UK, labeling him transphobic.
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.
and all this makes Ginuwine transphobic?

Our thoughts exactly Rodney Blu. Watch the scene below that sparked the big debate.

But leave it to Black Twitter (including D.L. Hughley) to have the singer’s back.

So I read an article about how @Ginuwine didnt want to be with a trans woman and, lemme just say this: I will not coddle the LGBT community. As a black man and a Christian, I am constantly mistreated with no support from our society

Why is #CBBindia trying to make Ginuwine look bad for saying he wouldn't date a trans woman? Does he HAVE to? Is he not ALLOWED to make choices that work for him? Or are you the only one allowed to do that India? #CBB

Calling Ginuwine transphobic for not wanting to kiss a trans woman makes as much sense as me trying to kiss a lesbian, getting rejected, then calling her heterophobic
