THIS IS WHY WE CANT HAVE NICE THINGS, KIDS.

Dating app startups breed discriminatory workplaces, unfortunately. If your product’s core value prop is facilitating the superficial judgement of others — and ultimately that’s what they all do — your culture will reflect it. While not as extreme as the case here, the dating startup I worked at for two years had similar behavior towards women, minorities and low income people — both as staff and users.
First of all, this *is* a health issue. My company was first banned from advertising by the MTA in 2018 while cactuses in the shapes of penises flood every subway stop. Why is it that medicating women is socially acceptable but less invasive and more effective products, such as vibrators, are offensive to the male commenters here?

Female sexual health and wellness products are banned from advertising on Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, Pinterest, Twitter and Reddit (to name a few). Meanwhile, a former presidential candidate (Bob Dole) has been a spokesperson for Viagra. Male sexuality has always been viewed as a health issue while female sexuality is relegated to the shadows as morally offensive. "I ASK NO FAVOR FOR MY SEX. ALL I ASK OF OUR BRETHREN IS THAT THEY TAKE THEIR FEET OFF OUR NECKS." Or in this instance, our clits.
My company, Unbound, has also been banned while erectile dysfunction and boob job ads are *everywhere.* The only logical conclusion is that we are afraid of women owning their power.
17% of Air Pod owners are leaving them in during sex which is an uptick from the 10% who check their phone during sex. Lol human connection? what did you say? I couldn't hear you. I have my air pods in.
