Tinder gender inclusive options

In an awesome move from Tinder to try and make the LGBTQI community feel less excluded following the depressing AF US election results, the app has introduced 37 new gender options. Yasss, Tinder, killin' it!

Previously, users could only choose between being either male or female but now, as well as being able to select between being gender fluid, androgynous, gender questioning, transgender and transsexual, users can also type in their preferred term if it isn't displayed as an option.

The dating app announced the update with a blog post, saying “We haven’t had the right tools to serve our diverse community in the past, but that changes today.”

The move comes in partnership with GLAAD, who said the update reflects a growing acceptance of trans people within society and everyday life, "which in turn, accelerates acceptance for transgender and gender non-conforming people."

We're just hoping the rest of the world (we're looking at you, DT) follows suit.
