Grinder online dating

A man from Kent, Wash., has been arrested and charged with felony rape and robbery after he allegedly sexually assaulted at least one man he met through the online and mobile gay networking site Growlr, frequented by the burly, hairy gay men known fondly as bears.

An Indigenous university student has started sharing the frequent racist messages he receives on gay dating app, Grindr to show the wider community how common racist dialogue is on dating platforms, particularly in the gay scene.

Dustin Mangatjay Mc Gregor is shining a light on what he views as the prevalence of racism in Australia's gay community, particularly online.

I questioned his sexuality because the first thing that popped into my mind was “Grinder,” the application designed for male-male hook ups. This application has taken the concept of “hot or not” and turned it into a way to find your superficial significant other within a designated mile radius.

Tinder’s CEO Sean Rand says it’s an app designed to “facilitate a connection between those around you.” Indeed curious about “those around me,” I gave it a whack and allowed the application to access my Facebook profile to market myself to the Tinder pool.

From users disclosing their racial preference from the get go, to using racism as a way of expressing that they’re ‘not interested’, Mangatjay loaded these anti-social conversations onto his Facebook to show non-Grindr users how common racist dialogue is on gay online platforms. It's disappointing, as you might think that an oppressed group would help lift other marginalised people, yet here we are beating each other down." Mangatjay grew up on Milingimbi, situated in North East Arnhem Land.

He moved to Darwin when he was a teenager and currently lives in Adelaide.

“The line ‘no rice or spice’ is a common quote on people’s profile description and I'm regularly calling people out on Grindr for promoting these comments.

I've also noticed that the people who say these things are usually white men, and while I think it's perfectly acceptable to be more attracted to people of a certain racial background, voicing your preferences using offensive language is not.” Mangatjay says that he gets called anything online from a ‘petrol s******’, to ‘filthy’ or a “wog a** c***’, as he is also part Greek.
