Separate section for trans people and their admirers
I think trans men and trans women along with people who are trans-attracted deserve to have their own separate posting section. That way, trans community members and their admirers can better easily connect with one another. It would be beneficial and make sense to give trans people and their seekers their own platform, connected to the rest of Grindr but as a section within the existing app. You could call it GrindrTrans or something.

Omggggggg I cannot anymore. Listen I’m here for everyone’s joy but omg!!!! Straight men are now on the app.
JeepBear74 this is nothing to do with race and we don't hate trans we just want to at least be able to filter them out because we don't find them sexually attractive.
Clearly an idiot falling for lie that everyone loves everyone that's not true and never will be, that's just a story made up by the Bible and adopted by law to control the masses.

I dont know i too get creeped out by the wackos that post as feitish users. I have been attracted to trans women and men for well forever i was born that way i didnt develop a fetish over time my being attracted to trans is not a fetish and i am not a chaser either i see what i like and i choose to try and get together with trans who like me
This idea should have never been pitched.
I'm not Trans, but looking back at history;
How's this any different than whites vs. blacks, when you really think about it... Like really think about it...
It should NEVER be about EXCLUSION, SEGREGATION or ISOLATION, but INCLUSION...
History has a way of repeating itself.
Lest we do this, it makes a nasty blight on society and in turn causes distrust,feelings of being targeted, and not having a safe space.
We're a community of MINORITIES as it is... So let's act like a COMMUNITY, and HELP to increase POSITIVITY, UNDERSTANDING, and ACCEPTANCE... Through all of these steps, and actions it promotes a positive and streamlined way of CHANGE..
Let's BE that CHANGE!
I’ve had it with this. I no longer feel Grindr is a safe space for GAY MEN (AKA THE ORIGINAL DEMOGRAPHIC THIS APP WAS CREATED FOR).
As unrealistic and unfair it is for me to expect a gay app to remove straight men and trans woman (shocking disclaimer, I actually consider a trans woman to be a WOMAN) at least create an option for me to be able to filter out these profiles from my grid view.
A photo I attached is of a profile belonging to a HETEROSEXUAL couple seeking a straight male. THREE HETEROSEXUALS on a gay app. WTF! 😡
please do this, there are too many "straight" guys lurking who just fetish and troll looking for trans. Fills up the space.
Jorge Gonzalez commented
Straight seeking trans only do not belong on this app. It fetishizes trans people for straight guys in a disgustingly predatory way.
Well said Anflexboi.
Girder is first and foremost for MEN to meet MEN. Yes I said the M word sue me later.
Many other sites have bowed to your wishes in fear of prosecution from yourselves.
If have a knob and want knob stay if have a flower go bloom elsewhere!

Hey Arthur why not just invite lesbians and hell let’s throw in the whole bag of tricks and goodies. Let’s just make it an app for people! Look, Be who or what ever you are and be proud. That’s all fine and dandy but when someone is looking for a hookup and it’s been predominantly men for men, let it be. Please stop trying to make it about you and heart emojis. As a gay man, in not interested in seeing trannies or lesbos or straight men. it’s not transphobic or Heterophobic or any other type of racism or discrimination or political bullshit. The same as a hetero who chooses to have sex with the opposite gender isn’t homophobic. Your rights don’t get to trump mine I just don’t wanna fuck a woman who thinks she’s a man but has a Pu$$Y. Get over the feelings and live your best life. Be a proud bitch whatever you are but understand many gays have preferences that don’t include you or many others. Oh well. Grindr sucks anyways
Well Grindr is changing and that’s not a bad thing I think. Starting to be not just a gay dating app, but a queer one is a healthy change. Being more inclusive, less racist, sexist, transphobic is good change and I really like that Grindr is slowly changing… would be great if the gay community would as well. There is always an option to change towards another app ♥️ that’s more into cishet gay bubbles ☺️♥️
Sound like another idea to make chasers and the fetishization of trans* bodys easier. Trans* don’t need their own platform, so that they get invalidated as not cis enough again, they need validation as part of Grindr and as normal people.
As a trans* person I definitely disagree on this idea. What would work, would be, that the search engine could search for the gender // pronouns as well and not just for the „trans“ tribe (so chasers can filter and misogynistic gay guys as well). The option to choose ones body parts and filter towards that would be helpful as well both groups. Here it would be important to do some community work and teach ppl via a pop up window that typical chaser lingo towards trans* ppl is rude and inappropriate ♥️
Btw. being fetishized for a body that otherwise is used to invalidate ones gender is not cool. Grindr has a huge problem with both…as the whole gay community. It would be great if this would be considered here ☺️♥️
You want these fuckers to pay attention then hit them where it hurts most - their pocket! STOP PAYING IMMEDIATELY! I mean you're paying for service you hardly get - your words, so who's the dumb one here?
As a person who pays for this app I should not have to weed through people who weren't on this app when I purchased it. There are straight couples, Trans and those looking for Trans. There are people that don't even identify as gay or bi on this app. Most profiles aren't complete. They don't put themselves in a tribe to remove them from your list. Tribes usually wipes out most of the people near me because profiles aren't complete. Lumpimg us all into 1 category is stupid. Especially when you limit the profiles viewable and have multiple tears of memberships. For anyone who pays for this we shouldn't have to put up with this. I pay for this and it's wrong for my list to be filled up with so many profiles I just don't care to see. We are not a one site fits all. It is just wrong.

Trans girls should have a field in their profile that says weather they're pre op or post op. Also people should be able to set what gender they are attracted to so they'll be shown only those genders and only those what are attracted by your gender

I no I wasted alot if time looking for a man and have some very disrespectful responses
Ty Best commented
This is such a smart idea.
As a gay dating app, Grindr offers free trans filter for straight people using the app however we don’t even get position filter (top/bottom) for free. Please offer more options or make trans filter same as others that’s unfair!
Seperate Tribe for Straight people who can be approached by trans people. Straight people select trans tribe and then they are in the search as well which makes it even harder to find trans people and defeats the purpose of having a trans tribe. Also on the other hand trans people can search for straight people without any hassle. Hope the developers of this app understand the pain straight people have to go through in order to find trans folks.
In the city where I live, there are A LOT of straight men creating profiles on grindr because they are looking for trans woman. Then, here, it is very usual to read on some profiles: "NO MEN PLEASE"... Which I find a bit sad considering that grindr is firstly a gay dating app...
