    In response to the March 5th comment, yes: but make them actual ethnicities. For God's sake, they have Asian and South Asian...how is Asian one thing but South Asian is another thing...Make the words be real. And East Asian and South Asian aren't even ethnicities either, they are geographical areas, although I guess I see what they're saying. But it might be better if I could write in: Japanese, Indian. And maybe put a language. I don't know. The whole thing is a sham to me.

    I think ethnicity needs a write-in option and I think you have to change most of the ethnicity options because most of them are races (which are scientifically disproven to exist; East and West Africans are for example more genetically different than Europeans and East Asians). I think you could add ethnicity options or nationality options, you could expand what's available (for example, should Indians and Chinese both have to write Asian as their option??? Realistically). Or you should offer a write-in. Or, procure a list of ethnic groups...but there's tons. I think you're using ethnicity and a euphemism for race (what this really is about people, let's be real...big black ****, passive Asian bottom, party lyf Latino...which isn't a race already...or an ethnicity even...so). Anyway...fix it! Haha.

    The ethnicity category is littered with awful inaccuracies. I recently wrote to Xtube about the same topic, and it is an conflict gay service providers need to face and do something positive about.

    I understand most people of The United States of America are white, and therefore most users of Grindr, and the owners of it, and the operators of it, etc. BUT, these options were clearly made by people who have no knowledge of and sensitivity to race and culture. It is important to allow users to dictate their own cultures and not have to be subjected to the insufficient options you left for us to use. You wouldn't like it for you, chances are, so don't structure it like this for us.

    Let me say that the ethnicity option on profiles is awful to begin with, especially the filtering. But in a big city it can be a useful way for people of an ethnicity to see who's available and connect, if that's the basis of their connection. AND, it's useful for people to get to know another ethnicity. However all this can be written in the profile section and not have filtration options. But since you're racist, I'm presuming, and white, I'm presuming, you believe it's your God-given, American constitutional right to ignore all the black and mestizo people around you, and only look at "Asians" when you want an exotic bite-sized snack. You love these filters because they give your camp the power it's always had and you can't do without that. Okay, enough of my vitriol.

    I would rather have the option of a write-in, such as is available for gender. I know people will make a lot of jokes about it, but a lot of people will feel honored and relieved that they can actually write their own culture in it (i.e. South Asian and East Asian, versus simply Asian - a designation which, whether or not your mind accepts this fact, encompasses people from Russia to Indonesia, Lebanon to Japan).

    Please remember most of the options available aren't actual ethnicities, such as Asian, Middle Eastern, and Mixed. Also, using the terms White and Black is troublesome since they are used outside the USA too. Therefore, a Latino or a Middle Eastern person very well may be White or Black, Asian, or any other grossly overdrawn heritage group that didn't really exist until the first world said "let's play a game...".

    Maybe what you really mean to say is...race...but you're afraid to say it because it's inflammatory. Although, to be sure, Asian, Latino, Middle Eastern, Mixed, and Other aren't human races as defined by any theories on race. Maybe what you mean is color...but I don't think you'd open a color category because white people wouldn't like being associated with Hispanics and Middle Easterners and Asians. Nor would they with them.

    Anyway, after two years of use, I'm tired of subjecting myself to these inaccurate categories. I'm personally Black American, but I don't consider my ethnicity the same as all Black Africans for example. You made a big leap for gender identity and expression. Which I loved and gaped and applauded at. But I would like you to do the same for cultural heritage.

    Kindly,
    A User

    Why? How do you know these people? Just filter if you don't want to see people who meet certain requirements of a category. Stop blocking for god's sake. It's ridiculous and hurtful to be honest. Stop hurting people and finding more ways to hurt people more!

    Please don't do this. You're just stretching the already brutal cultural and socio-economic divides. Especially in the big cities where users have to face daily discriminatory attacks on their person. This will just add firepower.

  6. Have a way to filter out bots solicitation and scams

    Yes. I agree with this very much. It needs to be a more positive system.

    I agree. I love to give oral. Don't always want *********** involved. I can put that in my profile but can't be filtered for that or find guys who want head (cause you know our community's toxic tops LOOOVE to get aggressive when you ask to give throat without the booty.)

    This comment is an ageist comment. And the 1826 votes show the ageism gay people have. What's wrong with a nice, hot daddy or granpa?? I say that as a 28 y/o. Just think about the words you use and how they effect swaths of people, and then induce anxiety in those people about their value to other's who they might be able to connect to.
