Guy Jokingly Uses A Gender-Swap Snapchat Photo On Tinder—And Is Caught Off Guard By The Reaction From Other Men


That new SnapChat filter where you can create an exaggerated version of yourself in either gender filter is really fun but also slightly unsettling.

One man learned that the hard way when he put it on his Tinder profile.

Troy Sey from Los Angeles, California, posted his alter-ego, "Tracy."

Tracy got lots of interest from other dudes.

Here is Troy:

Tracy is extremely pretty, even though she isn't real.

Sey was looking to see if the responses to his profile would be different, and by gum, they were.

Sey got over 100 swipes in 20 minutes.

Despite a warning: "Compliment me for a surprise ;)" men continued to send messages to the not-so-real Tracy.

"I honestly thought it was obvious that I was a guy using the gender-swap filter, but to my surprise, I got so many genuine compliments," Sey said.

"I've learned that if you put a bio up on Tinder like I did, guys will ignore all red flags for some potential 'surprises.'"

And they must have gotten the surprise they were promised.

He says reactions to the truth about who he is were.... mixed.

Some people jumped to messaging him directly.

"Damn u look good tho," said one of "Tracy's" potential suitors. "Must be a handsome fella."

Sey said that Tracy's world is very different from his own on apps.

"I could get someone to swipe right on me maybe a few times a week — at most."

But he is now way over the 100 mark and the messages feel unsettling.

"I always knew it was happening," he said. "But it's pretty eye-opening experiencing firsthand."

Food, like art, is objective. What we all feel in our mouths is a private thought. Our bodies are chemically defined in so many ways. How we indulge in taste is our our journey. However... somethings don't belong together. Like, it's total revolt against humanity. And pizza is the basic food life force. Don't get crazy with pizza... pizza is beautiful already.

Weddings are an emotional day for everyone involved. With so many different emotions in the air, ranging from happiness to queasiness to, you can bet something is sure to go wrong. By "wrong," of course, we talk about the moment when a priest or pastor asks if anyone has any objections to the union of the two people and someone feels inclined to say, "I object!"

Have any of us really thought about the Megalodon? Like, really think about it? Something that large and that intimidating once lived on the planet where it needed to live, eat, and breed. Meaning there was more than one! That's insane to truly comprehend, but the scarier thing is there were once other creatures outside our imaginations that once roamed, or still roam, the Earth.
