Okcupid lesbian dating
Tinder graciously allows LGBTQ women to sign up for their service but don’t expect them to treat us as anything other than straight. Virtually nothing offends me, but being treated as if my sexual orientation is irrelevant offends me.
An app only useful to straight people masquerading as an LGBT friendly app offends me.
Ok Cupid Style: Ok Cupid’s color palette of pepto bismal pink and gender-normative blue isn’t the chicest choice, but it’s not ugly.
Tone wise, Ok Cupid is relentlessly upbeat with tongue in cheek terminology and a pleasant aura of “we don’t take this too seriously and neither should you.”Amenities: Like all of these apps, getting starting with Ok Cupid is quick and simple.
Tinder might be stylish and based on an essentially good idea (matching via friends of FB friends/similar interests), but this is 2013 and it is not ok to treat gay women like second class users in any context or medium.
In conclusion, the competitive app arena benefits consumers by motivating companies to create better dating apps.
Tinder treats LGBT users as second class users because it views LGBTQ sexualities as second class sexualities; we are not the norm and therefore not worthy of even the most basic of consideration.
Style: With it’s clean layout and modern typography, Tinder is hands down the most aesthetically appealing app.
Unfortunately, form comes at the price of function.
That’s been the unofficial slogan of Ok Cupid for the past several years. It’s a vicious cycle, really: lesbians sign up Ok Cupid because there are more lesbians on Ok Cupid, thus increasing the number of lesbians on Ok Cupid.
The internet dating behemoth still boasts more users of every orientation (although still overwhelmingly straight) than any of Ok Cupid’s competition. The logic is sound, but the truth is nothing will change unless we change. Style: Ok Cupid’s color palette of Pepto Bismol pink and gender-normative blue isn’t the chicest choice, but it’s not ugly.
