A new app designed exclusively for women is raising eyebrows for requiring users to send in pictures for their bio-metric gender verification software to get access.
The app, called “giggle,” explains that the gender verification process “ensures that those within the platform are verified as girls.”
Users are required to send in a “3D selfie” that examines their bone structure, a process that “ensures that those within the platform are verified as girls.”
“It’s Bio-Science, not pseudo-science like phrenology,” the app claims.
At the end of this explanation in the app’s FAQ, a message about trans women casually states “Unfortunately it doesn’t verify trans-girls [sic]. But we can help you at giggle HQ!” with a link to a contact page.
