Over a year ago, Lauren, a 21-year-old from San Diego lost her arm in a moped accident. “[I was] going way too fast and I lost control, and my wheel swung into the median and I flew off and hit a street sign that sliced my arm clean off,” she told BuzzFeed. Miraculously, an off-duty police officer was at the scene of the accident and applied a tourniquet, which saved Lauren from bleeding out.


Losing a limb was devastating for Lauren, but she learned how to cope with it through humor. “I feel more comfortable about things when I make jokes about them,” she said.

Joining an online dating site after losing a limb would be tough for most people, but Lauren didn’t hide her unique situation when she joined Tinder. Instead, she embraced it by using it to show her amazing sense of humor.

In her profile, she lists her job as “arms dealer” and boasts of having a 10/10 face, 9/10 body, 20/10 personality, and 1/2 arms. But unfortunately, she has yet to meet a guy on the site who’s worth dating. “I guess there were a couple guys that could keep up the banter but most were annoying,” she said.

Although her sense of humor has brought a lot of attention, Lauren has started a GoFundMe page to help her with a serious issue: finding a prosthetic arm.

From her GoFundMe:

“I created this because of how incredibly expensive bionic arms are, especially if you don’t have very good health insurance. I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately and how significantly it would improve my life. I am not ashamed of my injury and i’ve always embraced it but I’d like to have an arm back, any arm. Now i know the goal is a lot but I’m young and have time, so any amount donated is extremely helpful and means a lot to me.”

Lauren isn’t just funny on Tinder. Here are some of her most hilarious musings on Twitter:

The Free the Nipple movement is trying to remove the stigma on women's breasts by making it culturally acceptable and legal for women to go topless in public. But it turns out, Free the Nipple might be fighting on the wrong front and should be focusing on freeing the nipple in a place you'd never expect. Your own home.

A woman in Utah is facing criminal charges for not wearing a shirt in her house, with prosecutors arguing that women's chests are culturally considered lewd.

In August, the Recording Academy hired their first female CEO, Deborah Dugan. Ten days before the Grammys, Dugan was placed on administrative leave for misconduct allegations after a female employee said Dugan was "abusive" and created a "toxic and intolerable" work environment. However, Dugan says she was actually removed from her position for complaining to human resources about sexual harassment, pay disparities, and conflicts of interest in the award show's nomination process.

Just five days before the Grammys, Dugan filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and her claims are many. Dugan says she was paid less than former CEO Neil Portnow. In 2018, Portnow received criticism for saying women need to "step up" when only two female acts won Grammys. Portnow decided to not renew his contract shortly after. Dugan says she was also asked to hire Portnow as a consultant for $750,000 a year, which she refused to do.
