If anything, marginalized groups in society need accessibility to meeting people online, which is exactly why Dattch was developed.
The app, Rela, set up in 2012, has around 5 million registered users, a cached version of its entry on Apple's i Tunes site shows.
But users began noticing last week that the app, along with its Twitter-like Weibo account and website, was no longer accessible, according to users posting on Weibo under the hashtags #rela and #relahasbeenblocked.
Founder Robyn Exton realized that the current dating products out there were not only flooded with dudes asking for threesomes, but that the actual mechanics of the services didn’t fit the way that queer women relate to each other.
To start, each Dattch user has their own living profile that they can update with photos from Instagram, Facebook and their camera album.
