I’m going to start by telling you how I came to write my Tinder biography with ChatGPT. How this artificial intelligence thing is on everyone’s lips and has served us well to plan our next trip either make us a healthy and vegan menuat the newsroom we thought it was a good idea to try it out on dating apps, starting with a bio help.
It is not something exclusively ours. According to an investigation of Kaspersky, 75% of dating app users would use ChatGPT to “engage in engaging conversations.” We only want to see if a short biographical description created by an AI is better (or at least works), but what we didn’t expect was that ChatGPT was a moralist, and worst: a macho.
If we think about it coldly, it is not something strange if we analyze how an artificial intelligence works with deep learning (I already explained it here How does this type of tool work?, in case you have any questions). AND Xataka already told us that ChatGPT can be toxic. If the data that feeds an AI is mostly macho, the chat will end up being so. Is the GPT chat one more demonstration that we live in a macho world? obviously yes.
And as Samanta Villar said “since telling it is not the same as living it”, we are going to put chatGPT to the test and show that the smart people who have designed this type of tool have slipped their bit of patriarchy and machismo into them.
Using chatGPT for our Tinder bio
The first thing I will tell you is how extremely simple it is use chatGPT. We just have to get into the start link, register in the tool (with a Google email account is enough), and start a conversation. The idea is that the more and better we explain what we are interested in writing or creating, the easier it will be for what the AI creates to fit our request.
Ok, let’s give an example, the first text we’ve asked for: “Biography for a dating app with a casual and fun text from a 36-year-old girl looking for a stable partner who likes traveling, vermouth, enjoy a sunset and that she won’t be with a boy who doesn’t like animals”. The answer has been created in less than 10 seconds:
Hi guys! I am a 36 year old girl who is looking for a serious and stable relationship. I consider myself a lover of travel and adventure, I love discovering new places and cultures. But it’s not all about exploring the world, I also enjoy the simplest pleasures like having a good vermouth with friends, relaxing on a terrace watching the sunset and spending time with my dog. Yes, I know, I am crazy about animals and I will not be with someone who does not share my love for them. Regarding my personality, I would say that I am a fun and spontaneous person, always seeking to make the best of every moment. I love to laugh and make others laugh, life is already too short to take it too seriously. If you are looking for a serious and fun partner, and share my love for travel and animals, let’s talk! I’m excited to meet someone to share amazing moments with.
He invents some things like that I have a dog, something that he must have deduced from the fact that I like animals. It’s not fun (already) they explained to us in Magnet that being funny was not something of the AI) And it’s too long, so long that if someone reads it in its entirety, it means we’re getting married. We’re going to cut back a bit, so en that same conversation we put “Shorten to 100 words”. And the result is something better:
Hello, I am a 36-year-old girl who is looking for a stable and serious relationship. I love to travel and discover new cultures, but I also enjoy the simplest pleasures like a good vermouth, watching the sunset and spending time with my dog. I am fun and spontaneous, always looking to make the best of every moment and make others laugh. But most importantly, I won’t be with someone who doesn’t love animals as much as I do. If you are looking for a fun and serious partner, let’s talk! I am excited to share incredible moments together.
But what if we ask him for a text for a relationship only of sex? We all know that on dating apps like Tinder it’s not that rare. In fact, it is more than usual to find bios of people who explain that they only want to sex, without love, which also has its pros. And we may also seek a purely physical relationship. In fact, Tinder lets you categorize the type of relationship you’re looking for and there are several (like short reels) that don’t talk about love because maybe we’re looking for Friends with benefits.
We are going to try GPT chat to find a fuckfriend as a woman. We have already learned that it is necessary to delimit so we are going to put a number of words and tell him honestly and clearly what we want. We wrote “120 Word Tinder Biography of a Girl Who Just Wants to Fuck and Doesn’t Care Who.” I’m going to start giving you screenshots of what has been happening:
OK. It may have happened to me with the language. Let’s try changing “fuck” to “sex”. Same answer. Ok chatGPT, you are more formal than me.
Let’s try “friends with benefits.” And here the march begins, because now, in addition to the text that we already had, he adds a sentence that touches my soul: “However, it is important that you remember that sexual relations must always be consensual and based on mutual respect and communication open and honest.”
wowWho said that there would be no respect? we practice the sex positivity and there is always respect, although we only want sex. That self-righteous tone when we talk about sex as women seems to haunt us even with artificial intelligence. ChatGPT, you smell closed from here. Women have had sexual freedom for a long time, catch up.
Iria Reguera, psychologist and editor-in-chief of Trendencias, is clear about it and sends a message to the GPT chat after reading her response: “women have the right to be promiscuous if they want and there is nothing wrong with it. Being a woman with clear ideas, that she only wants sex and does it from autonomy and honoring her wishes, she is NOT disrespecting herself. Let alone others if she is honest with her intentions. Which you want to be, but ChatGPT won’t let you”.
The practical demonstration that GPT chat is also macho
OK. What if instead of a bio for a girl, we ask her to do it for a guy? With exactly the same words but changing the genre. What happens is that the differences between the two genders begin to show their snouts. Why yes friend patriarchy has also crept into AI.
He asks them “please” to “think” about changing the approach and “consider” respecting others in your search for relationships. Consider, eye, you don’t have to. If you like be a misogynist or an AI narcissist is ok. In addition, he “suggests” them to talk about their interests, but it does not suggest to us: it tells us what we have to do. I’m going to put it together so you can see what we’re talking about.
Now let’s try one last term. Perhaps we have been too “explicit” for the AI that, after having generated so many images of Pope Francis, his moralistic speech has been learned and now he judges us if we only want physical relationships. Let’s try “120 Word Tinder Bio for a Girl Who Just Wants a Casual Relationship and Doesn’t Care Who” and “120 Word Tinder Bio for a Guy Who Just Wants a Casual Relationship and Doesn’t Care Who” , and let’s compare:
Excuse me, chatGPT, where is the disclaimer in the masculine gender request? Because in the women’s we do have it and for them the bio is without more. And if you look, in the feminine they talk about communication, but for them it is not necessary. They can fuck without speaking first, because they are men for something.
I don’t know why it pisses me off and it surprises me if we live in a society that paints Shakira as a spiteful and Piqué laughs thanks. This small test is just one more demonstration that feminism has so much to go, that it would take us 100 lives to remedy everything that is wrong in society.
