Transgender transsexual dating sites
The move is seen as a step forward for people who are transgender or gender-nonconforming who wanted to be better represented by the popular app.Crucially, these updates also aim to create a safer, more accepting environment for transgender users.For Drucker, this was one of the most progressive changes made to the app.“I’m pleased that Tinder decided to include a range of gender identity keywords, because there are many different ways to identify,” Drucker wrote.“We also focused on education throughout the Tinder community.We trained our team on what is acceptable and what is not and how best to handle cases.Rad said that it was clear many of these users were being “reported” simply because of their gender identity, creating a hostile environment within the larger app community.
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.
So it was sadly unsurprising when that Laverne Cox interview got quoted on another news site beneath the headline: “Laverne Cox says men who are ashamed of dating trans women are ‘insecure as f*ck.’”If you scroll through the many disgusting responses to that article on social media—which I won’t dignify by reprinting here—you’ll find dozens of people reacting as if the actress had been talking about all straight men, not just the subset of straight men who are already interested in dating transgender women.
Cox had to clarify on Twitter this week that the headline was “taken a bit out of context.” “To be clear,” she continued, “I am referring to men who seek out and have sex with trans women but choose to keep us a secret.

about the phenomenon of straight men who date transgender women but want to “keep us a secret,” calling those men “insecure as fuck” for fearing that society will perceive them as gay.
