Harvard Student Who Creates Dating App Forced to Apologize. For Only Offering Two Genders...
You're familiar with Facebook, right (see Report Confirms Facebook Wanted to Ban Trump Posts and Facebook Bribes Recruiters to Hire ‘Diverse’ Employees. It Fails Hilariously!)? Facebook was created by a student at Harvard, who was basically left to his own devices (depending on which book you've read and believe on the subject). Today? Harvard students can't create a dating app without having people complain about only giving two genders from which to choose.
Twenty-six members of the Undergraduate Council, including UC President Yasmin Z. Sachee ’18 and Vice President Cameron K. Khansarinia ’18, signed a letter admonishing Datamatch’s restrictive gender choices.
Datamatch, a matchmaking algorithm created by the Harvard Computer Society for Valentine’s Day, forced students to choose “male” or “female” without offering options for genderqueer or gender non-conforming students. The algorithm’s website this year, however, allowed students to elaborate on their gender identity in a text box, but only after selecting one of the two genders provided.
And of course...
“I, on behalf of the Harvard Computer Society and on Datamatch, take full responsibility for the exclusion that we have created on campus,” Cuan-Martinez said at the meeting.
In other words, this guy apologized for only having male and female options. Even though there are only male or female people.
Sure, you and I know that there are actually only two genders to chose from. But unlike leftists and apparently too many Harvard students, we're not anti-science. Even though the left constantly tells us we're "anti-science." BUT THERE ARE 52 GENDERS, YOU HATER.
How many "genders" do people expect to be able to choose from on a dating app? Becuase last time I was left or right swiping, I wasn't upset that gender-queer people were under-represented. Mostly because a lot of people using dating apps? Aren't interested in people who are anything other than male or female. Fair?
And since it looks like this was just for Harvard students, how many different genders are students? If there are only two trannys on campus, do they really need a dating app to find each other? These questions need answers. Also, why can't there be a separate dating app for people who are gender non-binary instead of bullying an app creator into apologizing for basic biology? No one is stopping anyone from creating their own app. If there's a market for an app for non-gender conforming snowflakes, then they should create it. Perhaps it would be harder to name the app. You know, with not wanting to leave anyone out. Well... except straight people.
