Trans men dating
Tinder took a great leap toward inclusion on Tuesday by announcing that it would be rolling out expanded gender options for users.
Following similar moves by Facebook and Ok Cupid, the popular dating app will allow transgender and gender nonconforming people to identify beyond the binary choices of “male” and “female.” By selecting the “More” option, users can choose between 40 identities, including “non-binary,” “transgender woman,” “transgender man,” “transmasculine,” “agender,” “two-spirit” and “other.”The trans-friendly upgrade was hailed as a groundbreaking moment for Tinder, a company that has struggled with preventing harassment on its platform.
If users are able to pinpoint the location of transgender people in their neighborhood, they could exploit that same technology to target them for violence.
For those unfamiliar, Tinder works by matching users with other people who live in their general vicinity.
The latest numbers say 70% of gay men and 47% of lesbians have dated someone they met online, and dating apps are becoming the norm for doing so.
