It's a new app for lesbians called Scissr, sisters!

19 December 2014

scissr An app that claims it's the lesbian version of Grindr is on its way.

Claiming it's somewhat 'classier' than the gay man networking app, Scissr is created "by lesbians for lesbians". Crikey. It'll be full of sock-puppet accounts, set up by men, seeing if they can tediously 'turn' some women before being frightened off by everyone's love of P!nk albums.

The free app, which will be available on iOS and Android, will fill a gap in the women-seeking-women app sector.

The inventor Allison Ullrich reckons it will offer a 'mind blowing' experience for the ladies: "I think what spawned the idea was life – reality – and conversations I've had with my friends regarding relationships and women.”

Well, duh.

Users must be over 18, and are allowed to upload three photographs and write a bio of 300 words. Christ, that's a bit admin-y. You don't get that sort of faff with Grindr.

The app will feature private messages, and the option to “crush” on a user or add them to a “wish list”.

Lesbian dating sites and apps are not new, but Ullrich reckons Scissr will offer more. “We want to connect and promote those in the LGBT community through our independent or shared cultural interests.”

This follows a report that lesbians in the UK earn 5% more than their heterosexual sisters, yet, gay men earn less than straights.
