Breaking News: Gay people use mobile apps to hook up just like straight people. OK, that isn’t exactly breaking news, but reporting on it at the Olympics gives Uber-activists sadfeels because it’s a violation of SafeSpace or something.
“Armed with a range of dating and hookup apps—Bumble, Grindr, Jack’d, and Tinder—your distinctly non-Olympian correspondent had scored three dates in the first hour,” Hines, who is married and straight, wrote in his article. “Athlete profiles on the various apps during my short exploration included a track star, a volleyball player, a record-holder in the pool, a sailor, a diver, and a handball player.”
Oooh, if he can just find a cowboy and a construction worker, he’s ready for a village people reunion.
OK, so you put several thousand young, athletic, highly competitive people together and we’re supposed to be outraged that a reporter determines that… yes… hooking up is a thing that is facilitated by modern technology. Some concern about athletes from countries where homosexuality is punishable by law is legit, but a lot of LGBTQLMNOPXYZ’s were upset because simply reporting on gay hookups is homophobic, or something.
Several media outlets described and LGBTQ advocates and allies let loose on social media Thursday.
This is garbage journalism. It makes light of real issues affecting gay men.
LGBTQ+ people deserve respect. we are not your zoo animals. so infuriating. When LGBTQ+ people are protective of our safe places, understand WHY. we can be killed in our clubs. entrapment can happen on our apps.
Actually, the people killing gay people in clubs are Muslim Democrats, but whatever.
Sheesh, these activists want it both ways. They want to say on the one hand, “There’s nothing wrong with LGBTKLMPLO people using GRINDR or A4A or BBRT to hook-up,” but on the other, “How dare you expose the sleaze in our community by reporting on LGBTQ%!#*%$# using GRINDR and other apps to hook up!”
Note, these same activists have absolutely no morals or ethics when it comes to ‘outing’ those they perceive as political opponents.
LGBTQ – STFU.
The article doesn’t come out and say this dude is a friend-of-Dorothy, but I most definitely get that vibe.
To date, Joey Prixx, 26, has undergone 100 cosmetic procedures, which adds up to around 150 hours of cosmetic surgery, and has spent $60,000 (£46,000), to get the ‘perfect’ face and bum.
‘I had 350cc silicone implants inserted through either sides of my bum crack, they’re the largest I could have without them being specially made due to my body size,’ he explains.
‘I love that so much of me is fake. I love that I sparkle from all angles. I love that I make people feel better about themselves I am so happy with who I am, what I do for others & where life has brought me.
