I would like to have that filter back, I am a latino in his 30's I have traveled a lot and have developed certain tendency to specific ethnicities that for mostly cultural reasons I feel very attracted to. I am a very open person that condemn racism and discrimination but I do not see how taking down the filter alone works on the fight against exclusion and discrimination. I actually believe this might even deepen the invisibility of minorities from the view of people that could be really interested on interacting with who is different, as well as, obstructing the intention of interacting with other cultures or with their own while overseas.
Exactly. The ethnicity filter would help a caucasian male like me to mingle with middle eastern men that I'm particularly fond of and it would be very positive in terms of inter ethnic relationships. This is healthy, natural and sane. This is NOT racism and it is NOT fetishisation, thinking otherwise is insane. The stupid choice of Grindr CEO Jeff Bonforte from his comfy office in woke California to force me to fill up the grid with all the people *HE* wants me to see and that I do now want to see on a dating app is totally failing the product that's supposed to be used to find a MATCH and not to find everybody else who is not a match. At that point I can go to Facebook or any gay bar and it would be much more effective and fun. All this happening because woke Jeff Bonforte wanted to bow to the fascist marxist racist movement of Black Lives Matters. Jeff your app is global, keep your woke politics in California! You won't see my money back, I just bought a yearly subscription to gay romeo where I can use the ethnicity filter as much as I can.
