Free transexual dating sites
Although Tinder, Grindr and Ok Cupid allow users to list their identity as transgender, as a trans man, trans woman, and gender queer, there has not been an explicitly trans dating app space to date.
Transdr co-founder Sean Kennedy recently introduced Pink News to the app by stating the need for an explicitly trans dating service, especially as other trans-friendly sites have closed.
“When spaces such as Craigslist’s personals section, Backpage and Hungangels’ forum have closed, it has forced some trans people to find new spaces to meet other trans people,” said Kennedy.
“We feel like trans people were treated unfairly on Tinder from time to time.
Washboard-Abs-No-Face and unsolicited dick pics that most women, unfortunately, receive. Right as a transgender woman (I was born male, but identify and present as female) adds a whole new dimension to digital dating.
Since transitioning in I haven’t reacted positively to guys who hit on me in person because I haven’t mastered the art of telling them that we have “the same parts.” For the past three years, Tinder has been my gateway into online dating as a transgender woman.
“However, we care about our users very much and we have removed those terms on our official site.
Also, we will remove them on the app title.” Another issue that had been highlighted by users is the lack of non-binary options within the app.
With my accounts on Ok Cupid, Tinder, Hinge, Coffee Meets Bagel and Christian Mingle, I am subjected to the same kind of messages from Mr.
We will remove ‘and their admirers.'” Others have criticised the app for being made by cisgender people without the input of trans people. Cool cool I wonder if the creator is actually trans…
oh no who could have seen this coming ♀️,” wrote one Twitter user.
“‘Transdr is a TS dating and social community for transgender, crossdresser people…’ and it goes on to use the words shemale, lady boy and sissy boy. These words – which are regularly used as insults against transgender people – were originally justified by a Transdr spokesperson as being used for advertising purposes, allowing the app to be found more easily in search engines and within the app stores.
When asked whether the app still supported the use of these terms after the complaints, a Transdr spokesperson told Pink News that while there was a benefit to using such loaded terms, they had made the decision to remove them.
Transdr said that they had planned to include a non-binary option, but that it was removed by mistake and would be added to a subsequent update.
