The latest trend here in the Minne Apple is for young guys to get on all the “social apps” and (how do I put this delicately) “put on the red light”.
Or to be less delicate and more direct, they’re prostitutes and use the app as their pimp.
Mostly, it’s young, black guys here– but not exclusively. And sometimes they straight up want to charge and sometimes they “just want gas money”.
Regardless, it’s goddamn annoying.
Case in point, I happened to log into Grindr the other day and I was almost immediately solicited by a faceless profile. The exchange appears below:
Dude, I don’t care if your nickname is “Donkey Dong”– I’m not gonna pay you for sex.
