I have to assume this is a prank, if not, it may be the greatest thing I have ever seen on kickstarter. Complete with trigger warnings..


Quote:

About this project
Dating apps should be about you

There are no mainstream dating apps that cater to the entire gender spectrum and serve all sexual orientations (including not having one). Marginalized and underrepresented communities are not being served in the mainstream apps available. What's worse is that the apps that attempt inclusion allow their users to be harassed, stalked, outed, triggered, and just generally treated without respect or compassion.

That ends with Sapiens, the (R)evolutionary Dating App you've been looking for.




Quote:
Sapiens is moving beyond the binary and recognizing that gender is complex and unique. We created the Gender Matrix so you never have to simplify yourself.

The Gender Matrix is an expanded Venn diagram that offers over 100 gender identity and presentation combinations to choose from. Equally as important, each section of the diagram offers ’Questioning’ if you are still exploring, or ‘Person’ if you don’t like labels. Select your correct pronouns from an extensive list to be shown on your profile and in chats and all of these options can be updated as you need them to be. The Gender Matrix allows you to represent yourself to potential matches with pinpoint accuracy.




Quote:
Everyone deserves to feel safe and in control of their dating experience. Sapiens helps make that possible.

The Trigger Warning System allows you to set words and phrases you don’t want to encounter in your conversations. Sapiens automatically filters and blocks the phrases you set from all incoming messages. Sometimes, however, even safe messages can become a burden. Thus, Sapiens gives you the ability to limit how many times you can be messaged before you respond, cutting users off if they continue to bother you.

I'm surprised it took this long, it seems like a no-brainer.

They've got a website too. If they're not serious they're really, really committed to the joke.

I can see it. Finding the right match is tough. We've sort of papered over the intricacies in the past.

Finding matches for strong and masculine and also FLRish are tough even tho its a common pattern.

And that's only a tiny part of a successful relationship. So many moving parts. And the rules change with jobs, children, religion, and personality changes over the years.

If you are so afraid of being accused of rape, maybe you should think about why. It's really not that hard. You need consent from someone able to give consent or you don't have sex with that person. How bloody hard is that for you?

If beginning accused of rape is a recurring problem/worry for you, I don't think it's false accusations you're concerned about.

If I was single I would've used this over the standard places I used.

I'm glad that's hilarious, I guess!

The "trigger warning" stuff is poorly named, but being able to block random dick pics and "hey wats up" is pretty key for dating sites.

Not even falsely accused once. I give credit to my ability to spot the hyperoffendable and entrapment artists from long distances. I don't want to say "nice sweater" to someone and then be brought in for questioning.

My father used to say when I was a kid words of wisdom like, "If you see someone who is constantly worried about people possibly stealing from him, watch him; he's a thief." Now I tend to generalize and modify this idea. If someone if worried all the time about some sort of crime, I say, then that person will have a reason to; either the person is a past victim of such a crime, is very close to someone who was, or is a perpetrator him- or herself. By your own admission, you're not a victim.

So are you close to someone who was a victim in past?

If you are dealing out victim cards I will take one of each! I need them as wards of protection from Trust and Safety council, the feminist version of the sharia police on Twitter.


Kudos on rolling Islamophobia into your post, you're really hitting your two high note range strongly!

I backed the project due to the OP. (Sure, just for a dollar. And it won't fund, so it's a fake dollar. But still!)

WTF would they be raising the money on KS, rather than trolling Menlo Park for angel money and then trying to get picked up by Match?

That might be useful information to share with the women in your neighborhood. I imagine there could even be an entrepreneurial aspect, like selling a line of tee-shirts that say, "I have a list of triggers."
