The open letter was conveyed to POF, however they did not respond prior to this release. Below is the official open letter sent to POF on April 18, 2017.
In conclusion, Plentyoffish Media ULC, provides itself the ignorant option to “terminate access” to their website based on biased beliefs; against dating for transgender men and women. In result, POF’s strict platform encourages transgender men and women to create artificial profiles to find interested straight males and females. Reality is, it’s dating, and love is love. It’s haunting to know that POF hasn’t accepted social diversity, but is working to alleviate it. This letter is in support to create a friendly atmosphere for transgender men and women. Providing this access to transgender men and women, will encourage more homosexual people to use the POF platform. In addition, it will create awareness to equality throughout the world. Most importantly, providing access to transgender men and women will help alleviate the fear of rejection and safety concerns—as they can select their correct sexual identity. Diversity empowers tolerance and expands acceptance. Not just in our communities, but schools, businesses, and social platforms. POF this open letter advocates for a safer, tolerant, and friendly environment for transgender men and women. Like John F Kennedy once said, “If we cannot now end our differences, at least we can help make the world safe for diversity.”
