Try to talk to a trusted adult who you know will be open-minded.More and more college campuses are forming groups that welcome genderqueer students.But don't get too trigger-happy deleting that tedious paragraph where you're forced to queersplain what a special snowflake you are.There's still one glaring area of OKCupid's pro-queer/gender options cause in which it continues to suck: the "seeking" portion, which is arguably the entire point.A transgender individual is not necessarily genderqueer, and he may or may not be gay. Genderqueer individuals are also sometimes referred to as "nonbinary," a relatively recent and as yet not well-known term.The Gendercrash website explains: The Gender Queer term started to come into use in approximately the late 1990's. The term "genderqueer" refers to people who don't adhere to strictly male or strictly female identities and roles.
"I've been on Tinder for over a year and I've only ever gotten four matches," I once proclaimed to a table full of people.The CDC estimates that around 4 percent of the population is LGB- or "something else"-identified.Of course, the estimate depends on self-reporting, and queer folks are not always great at coming forward, for reasons we can't possibly imagine.This does a ton of the leg work in eliminating creepy messages from bros trying to convince lesbians that they "just haven't had it good yet." This past November, OKCupid also expanded its gender and sexuality options to offer 22 possible gender identities and 12 sexual orientations.Gone are the days of skimming for the obligatory "*queer not bi...**sexual anarchist not queer" footnotes in the profiles of folks who couldn't be summed up by the app's surprisingly limited self-identifiers, given its millennial-heavy user base.
