Kopt tinder dating site
The dating app Tinder is making moves to be more inclusive to the transgender community.On Tuesday, Los Angeles-based company announced that it’s updating its app to allow users to add more information about their gender identity.This is going to be an ongoing thing for the company — it’s not just us.
For example, not only did transgender users say they received inappropriate messages, but they were also being “reported” to the app unfairly by other users.
“Tinder’s update ameliorates the typical discomfort and stress that trans people experience around disclosure.
Much of the violence that trans people encounter is in the context of sex and dating, and for us to be empowered with the tools to communicate who we are and on our own terms, is incredible.”Tinder isn’t the first social media company to shift away from the male-female gender binary.
But as we explored the possibility of taking on this investigation, we discovered that 20 percent of our subscribers are either divorced or have never married, and might benefit from what we found.
Our survey included many people who at some point had used a dating website or an app, as well as a subset of 9,600 respondents who used them in the past two years.In the past, the app only allowed users to select “man” or “woman” when listing their genders on their profiles; now, it allows people to move beyond that binary choice.
