Ginuwine refused to kiss a trans woman on 'Celebrity Big Brother' and people are making a big deal about it

Singer Ginuwine has sparked a heated debate on Twitter after a recent episode of Celebrity Big Brother UK. In the latest episode, Ginuwine rejected fellow housemate India Willoughby.  

The controversy stems from a conversation between India and Ginuwine, in which she asked whether he would date a trans woman. “You would date me, yeah,” India, who is a trans woman herself, asked. “Not if you were trans,” Ginuwine replied. 

After Ginuwine replied that he would not date a trans woman, India attempted to plant a kiss on the singer. When her advance was rejected, India stormed off. 

Now Twitter has split into two sides. One side is outraged by Ginuwine’s rejection, suggesting that his unwillingness to date trans women is transphobic and bigoted. On the other hand, some fans are rallying behind the singer, insisting that he has a choice to date whomever he chooses. Some also suggested that India was actually harassing him. 

My take on this: You have the right to refuse anyone's unwanted sexual advances. So, why are people mad? Let Ginuwine live!
