I wonder whether I qualify as a cougar? What exactly are cougar-status criteria?
If anyone would qualify to be a cougar it's me. I've been in the game since the late 70's and still living happily as a cougar.
re: "I agree, this should be added as a filter, along with martial status, religious preference, ethnicity, political affiliation, and sexual orientation."
Nothing wrong with having filters for any of these things.
These are filters and settings found on dating sites and social media sites.
As someone who values freedom and libertarian ideals, I have no problem whatsoever with a website that wants to ask about or create filters for these things. But I genuinely don't believe these things are relevant on Upwork or that having this information would help clients or contractors in any way.
And before anybody ways anything about legality... Of course I am aware of the fact that some of these things are constrained by laws. But even if they were not, Upwork would not add them.
Cheyenne did you see that ad on Upwork? If so, you should probably report it . . . the Internet and Urban dictionary don't always define it as being a four-legged creature related to the puma or domestic cat . . .especially when modified by that particular adjective . . .
