    Hello GRINDR Management,

    I'd like to ask, if you have actually calculated the total number of pro and con replies issued? I believe that if would be the most correct approach towards finally deciding on the matter after over 2 years of discussion.

    I am certain that then you would see that vast majority politely asks for the filter to be reinstated based on a solid and undeniable conclusion that de facto any filter could be misused for discrimination, ie towards short, fat, bold, HIV-positive, older or any person appearing as contrary to someone's narrowed views.

    It is therefore not about the availability of the filter itself, but about the way it's applied resulting in a harmful, deliberate and intentional pointing someone particularly to discriminate him with regards to his specific characteristics.

    Please bring the ethnicity filter back!

    Thank you in advance!

    @Alfred Phifer,
    GRINDR is a dating app, not a platform for promotion of culture, fashion or trends. And while dating one must have a free choice who he wants to go out with. Therefore his preferences are very individual and feeling more attracted towards taller than shorter, or older than younger or - finally - black than white is natural. And as much as entering a room can be one-time action, because we shall never go back to it and choose next time a different room (bar, club, etc.), it is not possible with GRINDR which is the only one big room and pretty crowded one. So in order not to feel uncomfortable and to be efficient, one must be equipped with proper filters, including ethicity one.
    Finally, if the filter is there and one doesn't want to use it, nobody forces anyone to do so. But let leave FREE CHOICE TO EVERYONE and create proper reporting tools and draw general guidelines stating clearly what behaviors on GRINDR would be qualified as racial and which other as simple human preference, like for food, type of holidays or movies genre.
    PLEASE BRING THE ETHNICITY FILTER BACK!

    @Hhggg
    Well written! Indeed, we should put it to the test!

    Deleting the filter was a very bad idea and it's been already almost 2 years I have been fighting for its return.

    Please GRINDR, look at this discussion and see that it is the most popular one and vast majority supports return of the ethnicity filter. Time to make it happen, please!

    Please finally listen to the wisdom of those men. Please bring back the ethnicity filter. SCRUFF, JACK’D and other applications use it and among their users are also YOUR GRINDR users. Many of them who allegedly oppose the filter here. You will not lose customers, but gain!

    Ethnicity filter is a tool and it all depends on how one uses it. Like voice, hands or baseball bats.

    Talking to another person in a calm and respectful manner will be different than screaming to him/her. Still the tool remains the same - voice.

    Using hands to create something, to prepare food will be different than using them to hit or harm someone. Still the tool remains the same - hands.

    Playing baseball and hitting balls with baseball bat is sports and fun. But using baseball bat to hit another person, to break windows is horrible! Still the tool remain the same - baseball bat.

    Therefore filter of any kind can be used in a correct and incorrect way, but it does not mean it should not be accessible. It means that its use should monitored for breaches and the way one uses it in a correct way properly defined in TERMS OF USE to which users must agree, if they want to continue.

    Therefore, I kindly ask you to BEING BACK ETHNICITY FILTER which can not only make the GRINDR experience more pleasant, but first and foremost allow many on the application to connect in a joyful way, find their soulmates or friends in similar environments around the world and very often even simply somebody who understands them like no one around.
    Finally, it respects also freedom of choice and freedom of one’s preferences. Gay community fights with limitations. Why then GRINDR should be making any?

    Thanks a lot in advance,
    TJ
