This is Lauren, a 20-year-old from San Diego. She lost her arm around a year ago in a moped accident. Lauren told BuzzFeed News, ” I flew off and hit a sign and it sliced my arm off. I stayed conscious the whole time.” Social media has played a big part in her coping process, she said. And she’s made a point of posting lots of photos of herself since the accident. Last week, Lauren wrote a Tinder bio “to address the elephant in the room, that I was missing a limb.” Screenshots of it quickly went viral on Reddit and Twitter.
