From the women’s pop culture blog Jezebel:
eharmony will begin providing same-sex matches for gays and lesbians. The site had been heavily criticized for not catering to people seeking same-sex relationships and the decision to change policy came after a New Jersey man filed a complaint in 2005. Under the terms of the settlement, eHarmony can create a new or differently named web site for same-sex singles.

They were actually forced to create it but they didn’t want to. I complained about it to wharmony when I realized it wasn’t an option a long time ago, basically they don’t care and don’t support our community. And seriously do you think thematchmaking service for the lgtb community is going to be as equally effective when it’s not something they wanted to do? Why pay money to a forced service that discriminates against our community? Just because they wererid they couldn’t discriminate

I hope people still boycott them, as I have encouraged my friends to do. It shouldn’t take a lawsuit and bad publicity to FORCE an end to blatent discrimination in 2012 for crying out loud.
