Grindr will finally remove the app’s ethnicity filter

Dating app Grindr has decided to remove its ethnicity filter, after being accused of hypocrisy regarding its stance on #BlackLivesMatter. The app presently lets users filter potential matches based on age, height, weight and ethnicity. But the company says it has a ’zero-tolerance policy for racism and hate speech’ and has now confirmed to remove ethnicity filter from the next version of the app.

But they still think it's OK to be ageist, heightist, and weightist. Interesting. People shouldn't be allowed to have preferences to what they find attractive!

So, you're not allowed to have preferences anymore? What a world clown world we're making.

Who and what you find attractive is unique to you as an individual. Filters are not racist nor should they be removed. If someone is white or black or brown and doesn't have an attraction to that other race, then they should be able to filter it out. Especially if they pay for premium access.

Next on the developers' agenda for updating the app... removing the gender filter

I can filter out by age, Height and likes, but not by race? What is with everyone and being over the top about someone's skin color? If I don't want to date a certain group it's my choice.

For the whiners: I believe their point is: Find somewhere else to find a FB if you want to fetishize some particular ethnicity (whether it be “your own” or some other group).

I remember back in the 1970s, when people really started talking about race, and how clumsy it was. Now it’s 2020, and we still don’t know how to deal with it; the whole discourse is still a political minefield. Just respecting each other as human beings regardless of race, height, age, physique, whether or not we are interested sexually, still seems to be such a challenge.

Are they also going to remove their biological sex requirements to remove their hypocrisy around T people when they support LGBT initiatives? Sexual preference is not racist/sexist/ageist/heightist/weightist.

This just seems counterproductive. Not all people will want to pursue a relationship with people from other ethnicities while some will want to only pursue relationships with people of other ethnicities.

The pozzed community gets a little more pozzed. Not like dick size and ethnicity are closely linked, or anything. Not like that might be an item of some consideration given that said dick of said ethnicity is going up your ass.

It is okay to only date white people. That doesn't mean I hate black people.. Are people really this sensitive??? My God, this world needs a reset. We have totally lost our ways.

Grindr is just about anonymous sex anyway.

So people can like what they like, but if they are not ready to meet with a black man, they are racist? Why give them the ability to pick at that point?

Having a sexual preference isn’t racism ffs.
