TMZ - Mar 15 - The statement was made in reference to the lawsuit filed by a user against them. "We do not ban users from Tinder due to gender identity, which is why Tinder offers ~37 gender options," Tinder's spokesperson said. The user's attorney Ben Meiselas says Tinder's missing the real issue, which is "that Tinder is banning users who are reported by other users because they identify as transgender or gender nonconforming in their profile." He adds if Tinder is really concerned about inclusivity, it should have no problem agreeing "to an injunction that would change its algorithm and require employees to stop banning transgender users for terms of service violations because of how they identify. We ask that Tinder stipulate publicly to this relief."
