Since Tinder sees me ending up with a man, even though the thought of ending up with a man makes me internally scream, I spent 99% of the time pressing “x.” If you want to see more about someone, you can look at their very limited profile to see five pictures, a brief summary of how chill they are, and what “likes” you share. Unfortunately, Tinder operates under the oppressive, hetero-normative assumption that that person will be of the opposite sex.
I can’t imagine a less effective way of searching for my next girlfriend/victim.

Other features Brenda boasts include: Experience: One thing I love about Brenda is the girls online.
Comedian Ellen De Generes has been a well-known advocate for LGBT issues ever since she came out in 1997 on the fourth season of her hit show “Ellen.” At the time, it was a bold and lonely move to identify as a lesbian, but after almost two decades, Ellen has found acceptance and love in both her personal and professional life.
In 2008, after a four-year relationship, Ellen married Portia di Rossi, best-known for her role as Lindsay Fünke in “Arrested Development.” Whether they’re lounging together on the couch at home with their four dogs and three cats or joking around at a vegan cafe, this couple is just as cute as can be.
