This is so not okay…
OkCupid is supposed to be place where people can go online to meet other single individuals and eventually fall in love.
However, users are no longer loving the dating site ever since a profile question seemingly discriminating against those with learning disabilities went viral…

People familiar with the popular app are probably aware that there are a multitude of questions asked when creating an account to calculate match potential with other daters — but UK user Ciara Lawrence was shocked when she was prompted to answer a query about euthanasia on Thursday!
Ciara has a learning disability herself, so seeing that OkCupid wanted to know if she thought "the world would be a better place if people with low IQs were not allowed to reproduce" struck her to her core:

This is horrifying.
Mia Matsumiya has been on the Internet a long time. And she's been getting unwanted sexual attention for just as long.

On her Instagram account, Matsumiya shares the most awful, sexually forward and unwanted advances from men on social networks ranging from Tinder and OKCupid to MySpace and Facebook.

We’re not sure whether OKCupid CEO Sam Yagan literally lives in a glass house or not but he definitely just threw a stone that he shouldn’t have!
It was last week that his dating site shut down access to anyone trying to log in using Firefox!
The reason: the web browser’s parent company Mozilla was co-founded by a man named Brendan Eich who back in 2008 donated to the campaign trying to pass Prop 8 and effectively ban same-sex marriage in California!
OKCupid looked like they were standing up for gay rights with the move and gained attention around the world because of it.
But here’s the thing…
Head honcho Sam Yagan has contributed to anti-gay causes too!

Sound the trumpet, and call the hounds! It's time to go Firefox hunting!
The newly anointed CEO of Firefox, Brendan Eich, reportedly gave a $1,000 donation back in 2008 to support the thankfully now defunct Prop 8.
In a very upstanding move, OkCupid has subsequently blocked its website (partially) to anyone using Firefox.
Meanwhile, the following, AH-Mazing message appears to anyone wishing to access OkCupid from the aforementioned browser:

Just because they don't eat animals, doesn't mean they don't love sausage and fish! AY-OH!
OkCupid.com thought it would be fun to find out just who loves oral sex more. In a rather ironic turn, it seems that vegetarians love oral sex WAY MORE than folks who munch on tacos and wieners.
Oh, we've got a million of them! Don't even get us started!
Check out the graph from the site of people polled (above). Look at how many more veggies enjoy doing downtown than meat eaters. It's like … staggering!
OkTrends people: believe them, live by them, accept them.
