“Lesbian” Dating App Frames “Trans Exclusion” A “Hurdle,” Attempts to Cater to Male Users by A. Slatz
I’ve never been happy with the LGB left harassing Christian bakers over not wanting to bake cakes for homosexual weddings, which they did for many years, but, I also really, really do not support progressives harassing lesbian woman (or any woman of whatever sexuality) into dating people they do not want to date, but that is what they’ve been doing the last few years.
Men who say they are “transwomen” want to force biological women who are lesbian into dating transwomen… even including transwomen (men) who’ve not had “bottom surgery.”
That is, these are men who still have penises who are running around on social media and dating apps screaming that they are women and lesbians, and they demand the women lesbians date them and/or have sex with them.
That is wrong.
It is disgusting, and anyone supporting this and writing off any critics as being “TERFs,” bigots or transphobes is way off base, because what they’re doing is framing misogyny and sexism as being acceptable.
I’m a hetero, celibate, conservative woman, I’ve never been a “radical feminist,” but the homosexuals and radical feminists are correct to object to women being asked to prioritize the needs and feelings of biological men who are “transwomen.”
These businesses, such as these “lesbian dating apps” are in the wrong to include biological males in their platforms.

A lesbian dating app is under fire after it appeared to frame female homosexuality as a “hurdle” that needed to be “overcome” by trans-identified males.
On March 31, lesbian activist and TikToker Shay Woulahan posted screenshots originally circulated by HER, a dating app intended to cater to the lesbian community. The app offers searchable profiles in a similar fashion to Tinder and Bumble.
“@HERSocialApp is celebrating Trans Day of Visibility by framing lesbians sexual boundaries as “hurdles” that need to be overcome,” Shay wrote on her Twitter, posting a screenshot showing the results of a survey conducted by HER which apparently had sought user feedback on “trans-specific hurdles” experienced on dating apps.
Of the options, “trans-exlusionary preferences” took the lead with 35.2% of responses.
…She later posted a second screenshot showing HER announcing it was taking steps to accommodate transgender users, with two new features in particular targeting “transphobia” on the app. One was called “Improved TERF control” which promised “severe penalties for transphobic language and behavior on the app.”
Shay’s posts quickly gained traction amongst women on Twitter, most expressing outrage at the apparent policing of lesbian women’s sexuality. Within a few hours, the app’s official social media mockingly responded.
But HER’s attempt at writing off Shay’s concerns weren’t received well, with many social media users piling under their tweet to make their voices heard.
…As of the publication of this article, HER’s post has just 38 likes, but over 207 primarily furious replies. HER rapidly began blocking users criticizing their handling of the situation, and shortly after posted other tweets on their page condemning those disappointed with their responses as “TERFs.”
Speaking to Reduxx, Shay Woulahan said she was “disgusted” at how HER had framed female homosexuality as a “hurdle” to overcome, or “trans-exclusionary” preference.
Shay expressed concern that the “penalties” promised by HER for “transphobic behavior” would disproportionately impact lesbians who simply didn’t want to date trans-identified males. She pointed to her own experience being written off by the app’s official Twitter as an example.
….TERF is an acronym standing for ‘Trans Exclusionary Radical Feminist,’ but in recent years it has shifted to encompass almost any feminist who takes issue with the impact of gender ideology on women’s rights, as well as lesbians who establish sexual boundaries.
…The Thursday survey wasn’t the first time HER has come under fire for isolating lesbians in favor of males who identify as women.
In 2021, Australian Twitter user @shehersona tweeted out screenshots of four profiles she had found on HER in order to draw attention to the amount of males utilizing the app. But shortly afterward, her followers began to notify her that one of the profiles belonged to a violent criminal and pedophile.
Brandy Lee Gwyer, a biological male, had previously been arrested as recently as October of 2019 after going on a knife rampage on Hindley Street in Adelaide, Australia.

If you’re allowing biological men on an app that is meant to be for lesbians, you’re not a lesbian dating app any longer; I can’t even say that you’re on the same par as Plenty of Fish, eHarmony, or Match.
You’re more like, “We allow deviants, sickos, and creeps on to our app who will harass natal women!”
