Who Says I Can't Wear My Converse, sometimes identified as the phrasal template Me (A Liberal) is a TikTok trend inspired by a comedy video posted by the TikTok account for conservative dating service The Right Stuff. After the account posted a video mocking liberals set to the song "La La Land" by Demi Lovato, various TikTokers posted themselves doing liberal things and mimicking the TikToker's mannerisms. The trend began in March 2023.


On March 20th, 2023, TikToker[1] @daterightstuff posted a video where he lipsynced and danced to the song "La La Land" by Demi Lovato, with a text overlay on the video that read, "How liberals feel walking up to their first protest," gathering over 1 million plays and 90,000 likes in ten days (seen below).
