Grindr: Date My Brains Out

The straight press continues its fascination with Grindr - and the glimpse it gives of the twilight virtual world of the modern homosexual.
The Observer reports that 'Grindr app goes straight – but there are different rules for women'
"Grindr is going straight. The mobile app that helps gay men track their nearest potential date is launching a new service that will allow women to turn their mobiles into GPS-powered dating tools."
The piece continues in this hilariously coy euphemistic mode - why can't they just state what gay men really use Grindr for?
To track their nearest potential fuck.

  2. No.
    A "date" involves going to a fancy restaurant and perhaps taking in an arty movie...

  3. You can get a shag out of this? Sign me up!
