Ts dating site reviews


The changes come after complaints that many transgender users were being inappropriately “reported” and subsequently blocked by other users, in addition to the reality that after matching with prospective dates or partners, many transgender users received derogatory or threatening messages through the app.The changes to the app are personal for Zackary Drucker, a performance artist and associate producer on the popular Amazon series “Transparent.” Drucker used the app in the past and consulted with Tinder while it was looking into how to be more inclusive.“Dating while trans is difficult, and one of the biggest hurdles is disclosing your trans status,” Drucker told CBS News in an email.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.The app also gives users the option of displaying their gender on their profile.“Tinder’s update ameliorates the typical discomfort and stress that trans people experience around disclosure.



The tech company then partnered with GLAAD, the nonprofit organization aimed at raising awareness and advocacy for LGBT issues, to figure out the best way to make changes to the app that would be most beneficial to the transgender community.“We realized this is a very complex issue and we wanted to take the time to get this right,” Rad said.In 2014, Facebook started letting users choose from more than 50 different terms for describing their identity.Tinder engineers adjusted the field where a user enters a chosen gender identity to leave it completely open, giving users the freedom to enter whatever term they’re most comfortable with, rather than having a restrictive drop-down of options.The focus on serious relationships is unique compared to most other transgender dating sites, making it ideal for those seeking a long-term commitment.
