== Gender and Tinder ==
Tinder, launched in 2012, is a geosocial networking and online dating application that allows users to anonymously swipe to like or dislike other profiles based on their photos, a small bio, and common interests. Once two users have “matched,” they can exchange messages. In November 2016, Tinder announced that it would, starting in June 2017, be rolling out their "More Genders" update.<ref name="Tinder">{{Cite web |title=Introducing More Genders on Tinder |author= |work=Tinder |date=15 November 2016 |access-date=29 April 2020 |url= https://blog.gotinder.com/genders/}}</ref> This added 37 more gender options plus the option to write in your own gender descriptor.<ref name="Mallenbaum">{{Cite web |title=What you need to know about Tinder's new gender identity terms |last=Mallenbaum |first=Carly |work=USA TODAY |date=15 November 2016 |access-date=29 April 2020 |url= https://www.usatoday.com/story/life/entertainthis/2016/11/15/tinder-app-transgender-agender-genderqueer/93873790/}}</ref> The new gender options are as follows:
