BUSTLE - Nov 20 - Tinder is taking steps to protect trans users, particularly trans women, who may be targeted for complaints and harassment by cisgender app users. Tinder CEO Elie Seidman acknowledged the trans women on Tinder who have been speaking out on social media about the apparent automatic bans of trans people's profiles on the platform. These bans occur because when complaints accrue on anyone's account, the platform automatically bans the profile. But Tinder acknowledged that this policy has inadvertently impacted trans folks negatively. To address this, Tinder is going to start "redirecting these types of reports to an escalations team."
