Unbeknownst to many, there are dozens of different genders and the popular dating app Tinder is hoping to accommodate gender diversity into its business model.
There are many people who do not fall under the strict male and female gender binaries and many others who are not seeking to date or be intimate with people who identify with those strict binaries. Tinder is now acknowledging this fact with its inclusion of 37 gender identities rather than the two it previously had. This ensures that the dating app is inclusive of more people and is able to cater to the needs and desires of people that fall outside of heteronormative ideals.
By incorporating gender diversity into its business model, Tinder is taking an important step towards social awareness and inclusion.
