Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Disgusting content.

Only on the app 5 mins looking for essay research on artist sketchbooks before stumbling across barely veiled predatory content. Nobody asked for it, it was just brazenly posted for all to see. Concerned that this was so out of the gate I had to find if others encountered this on the app /creepyasterisks on reddit confirmed my worst fears. No good for kids, or adults for that matter, you have to be sick to want to hang around in that cesspit of an app. AVOID AT ALL COST. If kids are questioning their lgbt status and need peer support find another app that allows them to talk about these things safely.
