Dating while genderqueer
This has the potential to make online dating more thorough and more fruitful, but safety and acceptance for trans people who date online may take more than an algorithm.As La Mon noted, it all comes down to “the age-old question of when you disclose” your transgender identity.
While some have criticized OKCupid for showing people false or manipulated content as an experiment, the site's failure to accommodate transgender users may be a larger and more long-standing ethical dilemma.
Note that group #6 may include those who are binary-identified (man or male, woman or female) that “queer” gender in presentation or other ways.
Binary-identified genderqueer people may occupy a contested space in the realm of genderqueer identity due to issues of appropriation; see also for more on this.
La Mon prefers to be out about his gender with potential dates.
He thinks people will figure it out anyway when they meet him.
