Medical transition can be important when discussing transition for transgender people. Although all transgender people are valid whether or not they choose to transition, some transgender people want to be upfront about what matches should expect when they meet up. Each person’s transition is different, but the above terms are the most often used when referring to medical transition. Ensure this question is clearly marked as optional.
Instead of marking specific sexual orientations, it is more inclusive (and efficient) for users to choose who they are attracted to. That way there is no bias in defining identity labels, and users are able to be specific on their preferences.
App Analysis Index
Grindr has a bad reputation for being exclusionary, racist, and exclusively for gay men. However, the site is known for the moniker “no fats, no femmes, no Asians” has come a long way. Grindr has been developing their Kindr and Grindr for Equality (G4E) campaigns in order to create a more inclusive space for all their users. Overall, Grindr was more inclusive and thoughtful of the transgender and GNC community than many other apps. There is a clear effort to be inclusive of nonbinary identities, and the informational links and popups were well researched and educational. Although there were some areas that could be improved, overall Grinder received a higher score than anticipated.
