    No. There’s times when either it’s ignore or the police should be getting involved. The gay community is unfortunately not the happy and healthy system wed like to imagine. Many are discreetly using illegal street drugs and I’ve personally feared for my life after my first experience with some who wanted to “party”

    Because that doesn’t mean play beer pong. I’ve also had enough death threats from people who don’t like to read profiles to last a lifetime. Remove the block button and the app will not survive.

    There is a mute button for what you’re describing. Use that for little things snd lets keep in mind hate crimes didn’t exactly get less common with the trump administration.

    Cis females are not capable of realizing the number of actually working apps with potential matches within 50 miles is limited to maybe 2, and grindr is by far the more common of the two.

    Bi female who likes to play with bi males, have you stopped to consider that your anatomy makes being noticed by any interested male party far easier than a gay man or two bi men?

    We already live in a society where two females making out or being together is viewed in a positive or arousing light. But two men? It’s still taboo and there are murders every year that support this.

    Your entitled to go and do anything you want with whoever you want. Society has been reinvented just to make woman’s sexuality more widely acceptable.

    Well it’s still widely more profitable too. When a bisexual man wants to be with a female he has those other places to got to.

    Can you even imagine the outrage and media coverage if a bisexual male who likes bisexual females started crashing woman only sites and events?

    We don’t have even a fair media portrayal of what we are. We barely have a single functioning app that’s always going to be for hook ups. We aren’t as accepted as we *should be* in public environments.

    Let them use whatever reasons they want to like the ones below. They will never justify the cost and toll they take without any regard to who needs something they simply want.

    If your married to a bi man and he wants to be with men maybe you should address your marriage and not invite yourself into a community that didn’t get a #metoo movement. Because yeah, we can say no too but usually that’s where things get much worse.

    Two gay men from my graduating class have died from suicide within the last 5 years. 0 females. So be happy you have s voice. We have drag queens snd media making it easy to be a little homophobic

    There was never anything wrong with it to begin with. Besides double standards and the easy low blow that white men can’t prefer other white men without being racist.

    But BBC Only is a commonly used acronym.

    Whats more is this app is designed for men to meet other men. The growing number of “trans only” account types which is fine, but it’s not inclusive of pre or post op ever. Might as well bring in lesbians to use the site now too. But don’t allow them to filter out the men obviously.

    It’s on the staff to explain preference is not racism. That should be common sense. I’ve been flamed by and I’m sorry for pointing fingers but black men. I always tell them it’s not personal and I’m sorry. Some get it and are cool.

    There’s one account that I just saw is still up in my area that called me a lot more than racist for not being interested. And it happened at least twice. Logic falls through here. I brought up the bbc example and explained any other ethnicity, even a white guy, can be attracted to a black man and they are not considered racist.

    So the Point I want addressed along with how this feature is essential and needs to come back is that minorities don’t have an exclusive right to being made victim of racist comments and hate in a gay community. Or any community but it’s a much more serious concept here.

    So the account that called me little Hitler, and an idiot and every other thing he could should have been warned the first time he was reported and banned the second.

    If people have a problem with preference to race in any way then they need to find a way to get past that or keep it to themselves. And we don’t need to open a moral discussion on the topic every-time someone is insulted over this.

    It’s not a moral or ethical concept to be diagnosed. Not like profiles asking for certain types and request for you to message them one way just to ignore you and have no explanation. That’s misrepresentation in most cases. But that won’t change, it’a never been something the team would solve and it’s getting to be more common then not.

    Oh last note: I don’t see substantially more white men over any other race. I do see that almost every time just the ethnicity field is blank it’s a black man. So you guys are there, you just don’t advertise yourselves most of the time. Sorry it’s not fun for anyone to set themselves up to be rejected. But by being sneaky about it you’re only making it harder to find eachother. So do what you need to but be careful assuming this is another white man dominated community. Because it’s not.

    I also think its hard enough not being straight especially in Rochester. We don’t need to be bringing in more paranoia and anger here so don’t allow the protests and rioting in a place it serves no purpose other then further alienating the gay/bi/curious male community.

    That’s just being fare to everyone, truly fair and not the skewed fair we often get as gay men.
