ADVOCATE - Jan 4 - Ollie Locke and Jack Rogers, the cofounders of Chappy, saw a disturbing trend in hookup and dating apps. Things like "no fats, no fems, and no Asians" were visible on dating profiles. "Our incredibly progressive community is pulled backwards in time by anonymous platforms that provide spaces for actions and language that would never be deemed acceptable in real life", said Ollie Locke. Chappy created "The Pledge", a declaration that every user must accept before creating their profile. They promise that they will be courteous about others' feelings and refrain from bias and isolating behavior.
