"The move to let transgender users identify themselves as such is meant to let them “interact with people who are more accepting of who they are,” Mr. Rad said.

The company previously allowed users to pick from one of two genders — either man or woman — but will now let them choose from almost 40 options, including Transgender Woman, Transgender Man, Transmasculine, Two-Spirit, Neutrois, Non-Binary and Other. If none of those fit, users can write in their own."

You're going to have to make it 41 categories. I'm a sci-fi-philiac Klingon Libertarian double transgendered transvestite lesbian trapped in a man's body.

Or did they already list that category?

Now ... I demand my own unique pronoun!!

IIRC Tinder like many online or other dating services ran afoul of the transgender community about their failure to adopt "inclusive" polices regarding gender. As we know the past few years post gay marriage has seen the Obama administration and liberals/left turn their attention to the trans issue.


Long story short Tinder was sat down and this is the outcome.

A big part of why Trump won was a growing backlash against this insanity that he gave a voice to.
