What In The World! Tinder Updates App With 30 Gender Options!
Tinder is the dating app that has completely dominated the UK dating scene.
Research shows that there are 50 million active users on Tinder, who check their accounts 11 times per day and spend an average of 90 minutes per day on the app.
When it first came onto the scene, the app was used more as a hook-up/ no strings sex app because it finds you potential matches based on their proximity to you, but now almost everyone seems to be on it. And, the app has revealed its latest update which allows users to add info about their gender identity.
The hook-up app just made a major update that includes 37 new gender options including the tradition female and male choices.
According to the developers of the app, if you’re gender identification option doesn’t pop up, you now have the option to write in your preferred identification. No matter how you identify, you can express your authentic self on Tinder.
The app’s CEO, Sean Rad said transgender users claimed to have been getting harassed so now everyone can play nicely in their respective communities.
“No one will ever be banned from Tinder because of their gender,” they wrote. “We haven’t had the right tools to serve our diverse community in the past, but that changes today. In addition to this new feature, we are learning to be a better ally to transgender and gender non-conforming communities by allocating additional resources to our support team, which includes educating our staff about the challenges facing these communities.”
Here’s the full list of gender identifications:
Female to Male
FTM * Gender Fluid
Male to Female
