Ariel Hawkins, who is from Portland, Oregon, said that her profile was deleted from the app when she mentioned in her profile that she was trans. Hours after adding the phrase “camgirl on the side. preop trans woman” to her profile, Hawkins alleges that her profile was removed, though she did nothing bad, she just wanted to find her love as well as any other Tinder user. She used other dating apps and nothing like that ever happened to her before. Ariel filed a case against the dating app this morning in Multnomah County Circuit Court in Portland asking for a court order that would forbid Tinder to discriminate against transgender users. “Every dating app I’ve ever used or signed up for, I’ve always tried to disclose [my transgender identity] and be upfront with that because I don’t want to run into any harmful situations,” she says.
