    there’s lots of kink/fetish language that floats around. F@g, B!tch, daddy, tr@nny, etc are all used by different people at different times. Sometimes by people who are advocates for the communities whose derrogatory language they’re appropriating, others not so much.

    That got me thinking, I wonder if there’d be a way to not silence this kink play while also maintaining the safety and integrity of users. Like, maybe there’d be a “safeword/safety/negotiation mode” with slightly different lighting/formatting where someone could say “(hey, I’m really into this and you, but here are my boundaries)” or like “you can call me tranny/fag if it gets you off, and I’m attracted to you, but that’s not really my thing.”

    I imagine this would have to be a mode of communication rather than a boundaries list though because kink can be SOO nuanced. I also think things like read reciepts might be important, granted that feature already exists. maybe a green light, ✅ type agreement thing? I feel like the fantasy is played frequently and that shouldn’t be squelched (sometimes i even think a discussion of condom use can kill a vibe, which is SO DUMB) so having a dialogue box that can be more obstructed from the fantasy language of hookup culture, gives the opportunity for those boundaries to be negotiated, but doesn’t kill the mood. Maybe you have to elect to open that dialogue box, so people can come to it on their own terms and engagement. idk. just a thought.

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

    Pics of myself get arbitrarily rejected constantly. cis men can post their whole torso online, i dont even have **** and when i post a pic in a bra, it’s nudity. the photos i have up, i fought with your monitors to get and they’re almost wholesome.

    further, i just found a pic of me around mardi gras holding a jester babydoll, and it got flagged for being underage 🙄 like, wtf dude?

    i’ve been on and off your app since i was 17. i appreciate the work you do and how community and prep focused you have been of late. I just dont like how my body has been treated—like, it’s hard enough putting on women’s clothes everyday, at least let me show off how pretty i can be.
