Grindr: Survival Of The Fittest

And to those critics who say Grindr is superficial and reduces gay men to physical ideals, he responded with a smile.

“Fanstastic! I love it. Absolutely. Look good. I’m very proud if Grindr has forced us to up up our game. To brush our teeth. Comb our hair. Eat right. Go to the gym. Be a healthy person. Cut back on the smoking. Cut back on the bad things and look your best. We’re men. We visualize. We see before we hear, before we think, before we do anything else. That’s how we are. I haven’t changed that. That’s what our evolution has taught us to do. I certainly go to the gym more because of Grindr. I’m competing with the guy a space away from me on that grid.”

Grindr founder, Joel Simkhai, talking to Michelangelo Signorile via Huff Post Gay.

Only compete...
Ironically Joel appears to be using the interview to promote his good works for The Gays on something called Grindr4Equality.
“If I can make a difference, I’m going to try..."
Wow, thanks a lot, babes!
