We have one word for you, Tyler Baltierra: yaaasss. The Teen Mom OG star, 25, took to Twitter on Wednesday, Dec. 13, to let his fans know that A) he’s woke AF because B) Tierra Reign, his kids clothing line with wife Catelynn Lowell, is gender neutral.
When one of the reality TV dad’s followers asked him why Tierra Reign’s online store didn’t specify whether their items were for boys or girls, he provided an unexpectedly forward-thinking response. “That’s the way I set it up,” the Michigan native wrote. “I didn’t want any specific gender options because @TierraReign believes that any gender can wear any piece of our clothing if they want to & a boy shouldn’t have to shop in the ‘girls’ section if that’s what they like...they should just be able to shop.”
This isn’t the first time Tyler has voiced his support for the LGBTQ community. Back in 2013, when the Supreme Court ruled that same-sex marriage was legal in the United States, the father-of-one — who shares daughter Novalee, 2, with Catelynn, 25 — expressed his excitement via social media.
“Congrats for EQUALITY! My friends deserve to be treated as equal regardless of their sexual preference or beliefs #equality #noh8 ✌&❤,” he tweeted at the time. And then, after a handful of Tyler’s followers reacted with homophobic remarks, he was quick to clap back.
“If you are that ignorant to believe that being gay is a choice...watch this,” he added, accompanied by an eye-opening video, titled “What If Being Straight Was Being Frowned Upon Instead?” Tyler also urged his fans to “open [their minds]” to “marriage equality.”
Teen Mom OG airs on MTV Mondays at 9 p.m. EST.
