Take a Stand on Your Grindr Profile


Grindr Op Ed Via Deuchebags Of Grindr

Discrimination runs rampant on the most popular gay hookup app. Writer Lenny Gerard informs fellow users he won’t accept stereotyping and wants you to do the same.

In my time spent on Grindr, I’ve seen about one in five profiles include lines like “no fatties, no fems, no Asians, no Blacks/Latinos, white only.” Willful ignorance and the normalization of it further spreads the notion that it is OK to be intolerant and hurtful.

I often find that people on Grindr have discriminatory beliefs about their personal, romantic, and sexual preferences. People think it’s OK to discriminate when it comes down to whom they spend their time with (dating or “smashing”). They say it’s merely a preference, but enforced separation of racial groups and communities on the app is simply segregation.
