WHITE PPL:
Many QPOC include their racial identity in their personal. Consider including 'white' when self-describing, so that it's not assumed that every personal that doesn't include racial identity is white. Of course black, brown, asian, PoC, & white people describe yourself however you'd like, this is a suggestion that has been called out in the DMs.

⚔️
PERSONALS are not for cis men or str8 cis couples.
