As we all know, those who sit in between the male and female gender binary can be neglected in times of change. Tinder CEO Sean Rad recognizes this in a technological sense, and has recently vowed to be more transgender user-friendly on the app.
Tinder currently allows its users to identify as ‘male’ and ‘female,’ while allowing them to state their sexual preference as ‘male,’ ‘female,’ or ‘both’.
“For a long time we haven’t done enough to give [the transgender community] a good experience,” said Rad, speaking at the Code Conference in Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif., when asked how transgender people fare on the Tinder app. “It’s harder for them to get what they are looking for. We have to modify our experience to address that…. It’s not only good for the Tinder community, but it’s the right thing to do for the world.”
Word, Rad! Watch this space.
