Well, it seems like you should read Feminist Tinder’s Instagram account post as she documents every response she got when men saw the word ‘feminist’ on her Tinder account.
Tinder is one of the most popular online dating app for most women, but not for this lady [Feminist Tinder] as she uses her account to empower women and promote feminism, although many of her followers hate it!
Account owner, Laura Nowak documented her Tinder conversations with men who sent her sexist messages over the word ‘feminist,’ she screenshots various replies feedbacks she received from other users, and the responses were quite below the belt.
One man even called her a “whore” for putting the word feminist in her ‘About’ section and in her account name, another user called her about section the “worst” bio in Tinder.
As of writing, Nowak’s Instagram account has acquired 33.3 thousand followers, and her 428 posts received thousands of likes and hundreds of comments, mostly positive.
In her interview with The Independent, Nowak said the move she did on Tinder was never meant a project. Adding that she’s just a casual user of the app for several months before putting the word ‘feminist’ in her bio.
Moreover, Nowak said that she was really shocked when rude replies started to appear on her account and realizes that this was definitely something that she should share to show the world how people misunderstands feminism, and how our culture view the word.
“…I had to share, to highlight our culture’s misunderstanding of feminism as well as how rampant and active sexist double standards are in the dating world.”
In addition to this, Mail Online reported that Laura Nowak or well-known as Feminist Tinder is dedicated to continue the act since this is not her first time to give highlights to misinform opinions about women and empower women, so she is more than decided to pursue the project.
