About

Affirm My Identity or We'll Shoot Your Kids is a catchphrase and viral image macro typically portraying transgender people in a derogatory way. The expression initially appeared in April 2023 but went viral in February 2024 after a Twitter / X user created an AI image featuring a woman in front of a church with a transgender flag and the overlay text "Affirm my identity or we'll shoot your kids." The AI art ignited a debate on X as users accused the creator of being transphobic for relating an unconfirmed rumor that the person who opened fire at the Houston megachurch on February 11th, 2024, was a transgender woman.

Origin

The earliest online usage of the phrase was posted on X[1] by user @MostlyPeacefull on March 27th, 2023. The image features a transgender Wojak character with blue-dyed hair crying and the overlay text "Affirm my identity or we'll shoot your kids." The post (shown below) amassed over 6,300 likes and 845 retweets in a year.
