With such a strong presence of queer, trans*, and poly folks utilizing OkCupid every day, it is extremely limiting on those members to have to fit such rigid gender and sexuality options. Trans* individuals for instance are forced to chose M or F and then Gay, Bisexual, or Straight. These binaries do not fit for all of us and you will see more often than not a paragraph (or more) in these profiles devoted to trying to explain who they are and questioning why OkCupid has yet to catch on. The time has come for OkCupid to take notice of all of its members.
What could that look like?
Gender options would be: M F T
Sexuality options would be: Straight, Bisexual, Gay, and Queer
