In other words, it’s “Tinder but for Eugenics”:
Yes, Tinder but for Eugenics might sound bad – but this is Harvard so it’s a great idea and nothing could possible go wrong https://t.co/JGMe1OH7E1

Or, how about “Eugrindr”?
Ooh, “Master Race Tinder”. Or “Eugrindr”

But it’s not Nazi eugenics. It’s “NuGenics”!
perhaps NuGenics to avoid the very obvious pronunciation

Yes, it is that bad:
This is wrong on so many levels. It is eugenics. It is discriminatory towards anyone (including me) with a genetic disability. It devalues human life. It removes free choice in love. Etc. https://t.co/IaxEUyk31e

Did Jeffrey Epstien help fund this maybe?
Also, who funded this project? Didn’t Epstein donate to Harvard for exactly this type of thing?
