(ABC NEWS) – Twitter has been flooded with posts about #HeterosexualPrideDay, but an overwhelming majority of tweets were calling out the trend as offensive and unnecessary.
The trend appeared to have kicked off on June 29 in the US, the same day that a Seattle blogger organized a straight pride rally in 2015, according to the Huffington Post.
Users were quick to respond to the hashtag, with several asking why straight people needed a day of recognition.
“I am straight and I have all the rights already so yeah what should I fight for? This is silly,” one user wrote.
A number of users also expressed their disappointment that the trend came about during the same month that celebrates LGBTIQ history.
Here are just a few tweets that have been published on the subject:
