Nowadays the field of gender linguistics is developing at a very rapid pace attracting attention of numerous scholars all around the globe. The subject of linguistic means of gender representation remains both an issue of particular interest for researchers and a rather understudied area especially in terms of computer-mediated discourse. The ultimate aim of this paper is to find out the major linguistic means of representing one’s gender identity with a narrow focus on the social networking platform Tinder. This research intends to analyse the tools used for gender representation and compare them through the lens of the Russian-speaking and the English-speaking cultures. The main research methods are the comparative and descriptive analysis.
