How to use Lex, a queer dating app with no profile photos or cisgender men
Kevin Kozicki/Getty Images Lex is a queer dating app for lesbian, bisexual, non-binary, trans, genderqueer, intersex, two spirit, asexual, and queer people — everyone but cisgender men.  The app is based on the "Personals" Instagram account and is entirely text-based, inspired by "old school newspaper personals." Rather than swiping through matches like Bumble or Tinder, Lex users post classified ads with a title and description about who they are or what they are looking for.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. If you're queer and not a cisgender man, chances are you know the struggle of trying to navigate dating apps.  Whether it's couples looking for bisexual "unicorns" on platforms like Tinder or the general lack of queer-specific dating apps that aren't geared towards cisgender queer men, finding spaces to meet other queer people can present a big challenge.  This need is what inspired Kell Rakowki to create Lex, a queer dating app exclusively for lesbian, bisexual, non-binary, trans, genderqueer, intersex, two spirit, asexual, and queer people. Essentially, everyone but cisgender men. In addition to having no cisgender men on the platform, what sets Lex apart from other dating apps is that it is entirely text-based. Rather than swiping through matches, users write about themselves and what kind of person, relationship, or activity they are looking for — similar to personal ads in the classifieds section of a newspaper.  The initial idea for the app came from a popular Instagram account, formerly called Personals (it has since changed the name to Personals was founded in 2017 by Rakowski and posted over 10,000 personal ads submitted by users since its inception.  "It's bringing back the old-school way of reading personal ads, reading how people describe themselves, slowing down," Rakowski told the Guardian. "It's a gentler, more thoughtful way of getting to know someone." Whether the nostalgic format appeals to your romantic heart or you're just looking for a space to meet other queer people, here's a walkthrough of what it's like to use Lex. The first screen you'll see after downloading Lex is the app's personal statement. Lex After logging in, the screen reiterates that Lex is a space designed for queer people. In order to use the app, you also have to review and agree to the rules of conduct.

The most baffling optical illusions of 2019
Courtesy of Little Rock School District Viral optical illusions, like a video where people couldn't determine if an animal was a rabbit or a bird, stumped the internet this year. Artists also created mind-boggling works of art around the world. The logo for the 2024 Summer Olympics was released — and contained three images in one. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Viral optical illusions continue to stump the internet with their trickery, and 2019 was full of them. From hidden images to celebrity outfits to street art that makes people stop in their tracks, people can't seem to resist the chance to challenge their senses. Here are our favorite viral optical illusions of the year.An elementary school class in Little Rock, Arkansas, painted three-dimensional crosswalks in front of their school to trick cars into slowing down. Courtesy of Little Rock School District A 5th grade class at Carver Magnet Elementary in Little Rock, Arkansas, painted two optical illusion crosswalks outside their school in the hope of preventing accidents. The painted lines appear to be three-dimensional ramps or blocks, which would prompt cars to hit the brakes before driving over them. French artist JR transformed the Louvre Pyramid in Paris into a giant optical illusion in honor of its 30th anniversary. Chesnot/Getty Images French photographer and artist Jean Rene, known simply as "JR," combines photography and graffiti to create optical illusions on landmarks around the world. His enormous installation at the Louvre Pyramid revealed the foundations of the Napoleon courtyard where it was built through cleverly placed black and white photos pasted to the ground. Imgur user HorseonaBike shared a video of an animal enjoying a head scratch, but people couldn't tell if it was a rabbit or a bird. Imgur/Twitter The video's trickery is reminscent of a duck-rabbit illusion first published in a German magazine in 1892, then used by Joseph Jastrow in 1899 in his research on perception. Optical illusions that display two different things depending on how you look at them are known as ambiguous images or reversible figures. In the case of this viral video, the animal appears to have been a bird due to the positioning of the supposed "ears" of the "rabbit." Rabbits' ears are on the sides of their heads, not one behind the other. The "ears" also don't appear to be fuzzy, indicating that the animal is indeed a raven or crow.

We drove a $52,000 Cadillac XT4 crossover to see if the 2019 Car of the Year runner-up is worth the money (GM)
Hollis Johnson/Business Insider The 2019 Cadillac XT4 fills out the brand's luxury crossover lineup, joining the XT5 compact SUV and the just-launched XT6 three-row midsize. At $52,000, my subcompact-ish test vehicle was pricey, but worth it. The XT4 is a critical vehicle for Cadillac, which is moving decisively away from a long history of big luxury sedans. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Editor's note: Business Insider will name its 2019 Car of the Year on November 23. Each day this week, we're taking another look at the five vehicles that were runners-up selected from a pool of 16 finalists. Thus far, we've named the Lamborghini Urus and the Nissan Leaf SL Plus. Our third runner-up is the Cadillac XT4. Cadillac is getting its crossover game together, and the excellent XT4 is the latest example. The compact/subcompact crossover joins the XT5 and the newly revealed XT6 in Caddy's lineup, as the brand moves away from the plush sedans that have always defined it. If you sit inside a Cadillac Escalade on a clear day, you can see dealership parking lots full of SUVs. The argument is that Caddy is now equipped to take on Audi, BMW, and Mercedes — all these brands have a portfolio of crossovers, and with the XT4 and the XT6, Caddy matches up pound-for-pound. Of course, there's a catch. While the Germans favor performance, Cadillac has focused more on easy-to-live-with luxury and technology. It's a good-drivin' SUV. But not a great one. Read on to find out why we thought this crossover earned its place as a contender in our 2019 Car the Year roundup. Photos by Hollis Johnson.Our "Twilight Blue Metallic" 2019 XT4 landed on the mean streets of New York City and looked sharp in the process. Hollis Johnson/Business Insider This compact/subcompact luxury crossover followed the compact XT5, which Caddy rolled out in 2015. Our tester's base price was around $42,000, but a substantial number of options brought that up to $52,000. Hollis Johnson/Business Insider Cadillac has toned down its so-called "Art and Science" design language, which was originally angular and aggressive. But the XT4 still has plenty of edge.

Amazon tried to remove a Seattle City Councilmember and lost. Here's how she describes taking on and defeating one of the world's biggest companies. (AMZN)
Associated Press Amazon spent $1.45 million on lobbying efforts in the recent Seattle City Council election. Amazon's primary target was Seattle City Councilmember Kshama Sawant, who has loudly and consistently criticized Amazon's impact on its home town. The money went to a political action committee that supported candidates with business-friendly policies. Despite Amazon's lobbying and large political donation, Sawant won re-election.  In an interview with Business Insider, Sawant explained what it's like to take on one of the world's biggest companies — and win. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. To Amazon, $1.45 million isn't much money — a rounding error on the billions in revenue the retail giant brings in every year. Apply that $1.45 million to the Seattle City Council elections, however, and it's a far more significant sum. Of the seven Seattle city districts with races in 2019, most candidates received under $200,000 in donations. But in Seattle's third district, campaign contributions more than doubled that amount.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: Inside the US government's top-secret bioweapons labSee Also:The US cities with the most million-dollar homes are all major tech hubs, and it points to a darker side effect of the rise of big techThe highs and lows of the last decade for Jeff Bezos, from becoming the world's richest man to a high-profile divorceThe UK Labour party wants to tax Amazon, Facebook and Google to fund a $25 billion plan for free, high-speed internet for the whole countrySEE ALSO: Amazon's spending in Seattle Council races doesn't deliver

Aston Martin just unveiled its $189,000 DBX SUV in China. Here's a closer look.
Aston Martin Aston Martin pulled the cover off its highly touted DBX SUV. The DBX is the first SUV from the 106-year-old luxury brand. It's on sale now, starting at $189,000. Sign up for Business Insider's transportation newsletter, Shifting Gears, to get more stories like this in your inbox. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. The Los Angeles auto show is in full swing, but Aston Martin chose China, a potentially significant growth market for the storied brand, to reveal its first SUV. In Beijing, CEO Andy Palmer said in a statement, "I can't emphasise enough how incredibly exciting and significant DBX is for Aston Martin." "Through its development alone, this beautiful SUV has already taken the company into new territories and in inspiring directions." Aston Martin is 106 years old, but it's history has been one of highs and lows. The brand makes James Bonds' favorite cars, but a 2018 IPO was received tepidly by the markets and the carmaker has endured numerous bankruptcies during its history. The DBX is a step in the direction of sustained profits in a world that's bullish on luxury SUV. Aston said the DBX would be priced from $189,900, with deliveries commencing in the second quarter of 2020. Here's a closer look at the DBX:The DBX is slated to be built in Wales and should sit on a dedicated SUV platform, Aston said. Aston Martin Anyone familiar with Aston's legacy of dashing, aggressive design might scoff at a truck for Mr. Bond. But the company said the DBX is an "Aston Martin from first glance to detailed inspection," and in profile the SUV is sleek. Aston Martin Under the hood, the DBX gets a 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine, making 542 horsepower. It's the same powerplant as the DB11 and the Vantage, and it yields a 0-62 mph time of 4.5 seconds and a top speed of 181 mph, Aston said.

The Disney Plus launch was mired with problems on launch day because of a coding issue, exec says (DIS)
Jesse Grant/Getty Images for Disney During an interview at Recode's Code Media conference, Disney direct-to-consumer chairman Kevin Mayer said a "coding issue" created problems for Disney Plus on launch day — thousands of people reported crashes and had difficulty accessing the service when it launched last week. Disney released an official statement when Disney Plus launched in the US, saying demand for the service had exceeded expectations. Disney Plus earned more than 10 million subscribers in its first week. At Code Media Meyer said a technical issue within the Disney Plus programming will be reworked to improve functionality. The Disney Plus app is available on mobile devices, TVs, and video game consoles — the service costs $7.99 per month or $70 per year. In an interview with Business Insider last week, Disney Streaming Services' CTO Joe Inzerillo described some of the biggest challenges to bringing Disney Plus online.
