In a viral video that has spread across Twitter, a transgender TikTok user accuses a baby of being transphobic, even causing the baby to cry at one point.
The person in the video accuses a baby of liking them more with long hair as opposed to short, which they say makes them look more feminine. The person said that they confronted this baby about it, which caused the baby to cry.
"I have talked about the transphobic baby at work before," the person said. "I went in a room with him today and I had my wig on which I took off now because it is like 9 o'clock at night.
"He didn’t cry, and he was like, babbling at me, and I had a look at him and like, do you like now because you've had a moment? Or do you like me now because I have long hair and look more feminine? Because then you're more transphobic," they continued.
"Then he started to cry, so that was my answer," they concluded.
According to Teachers_Exposed on Twitter, the person in the video is allegedly a preschool teacher, though this detail has not been confirmed.
LGBTQ Nation attempted to defend the poster after Twitter users accused the person of being mentally unwell, stating that the video was all a joke.
"The fact the video-maker is completely joking has completely gone over the right-wingers' heads," LGBTQ Nation wrote.
"Babies can't actually be transphobic. When a baby acts calm and happy or upset and sad has almost entirely to do with their emotional state rather than their (likely non-existent) feelings on gender identity. In fact, the Mayo Clinic has said that babies don't even recognize their own or other people’s gender until somewhere between the ages 18 and 24 months," they continued.
