Men Are Using Those Gender-Swapping Snapchat Filters To See What It’s Like To Be A Woman On Tinder

It was only a matter of time until the catfishing began.

Hi, this is @valerieloftus with the Snapchat man filter on. Don’t I look like James Patrice?

Were you one of the many people who re-downloaded Snapchat over the weekend to see what you’d look like as a man? Same.

The app has three new filters that have been attracting a lot of attention – one that gives you a square jaw and manly facial hair, one that offers you feminine features and long hair, and another that turns you into the baby version of yourself.

Naturally, everyone has been knocking great craic out of it all. But it seems that when they were making this filter, Snapchat weren’t thinking about the dodgier aspects of giving people this technology. Like, eh… rampant catfishing.

Funnily enough, we haven’t seen any women attempt the same thing with the ‘manly’ filter. We wonder why…


Have your say
