Gone are the days of only having the options on Tinder of classifying yourself as a man or woman. Now you can present yourself to other swipers as “Two-Spirit”, “Pangender” or one of 35 other options because … well … America 2016, duh! The new feature allows those from the Trans community as well as others who do not identify as simply male or female to display their proper gender on their profiles.

“Our goal is to provide a product that gives our transgender and gender non-conforming users a better experience on Tinder,” CEO Sean Rad said in a statement.

Several members from the trans community who used the app prior to the latest roll-out say that because they were not able to share their proper gender on the dating app, they were often reported or harassed after matches discovered they were transexual. Good to see the folks at Tinder doing their part to make our society more inclusive, even if makes searching for your next hookup hella confusing.
