Dating site OKCupid now allows users to state their preferred pronouns


The popular dating site, which has millions of users around the world, rolled out an update to include trans and non-binary people without limiting them in choosing pronouns.The website already allowed people to specify their gender identity, but now pronouns can be specified as well. The pronoun choice displays for other users, handily letting people know how to address someone when sending them a message. The option allows user to pick the pronouns he/him, she/her, they/them, or to type their own. The website blog explained that such an update is motivated by their wish to create a safe space for LGBT+daters. GLAAD Vice President of Programs Zeke Stokes said: “Everyone should be able to express who they are, in their own words, and to have the opportunity to find romance with someone who respects and appreciates them. By creating a dedicated space for personal pronouns on profiles, OkCupid has taken an important step forward that raises the bar for LGBTQ-inclusion on dating apps.”
