    I referenced Mathew Shepherd because that case gained a lot of media and led to laws being changed. Two men were convicted of his murder. The theories as to why range from drug deal gone wrong, to hate crime, to secrete ex-lover. I believe there were two Craigslist killers both straight men killing women. The bigger point was a lot of serial killers target prostitutes or perceived prostitutes some documentaries simple say serial killers target individuals engaged in risk behavior or those on the edges of society. My point being there is always a risk in meeting someone off a webpage or app and considering Grindr allows individuals convicted of sex crimes on the app who’s to say there aren’t worse people on the app. The one profile that messages me had a picture of a person convicted of a sex crime against a minor as part of the profile. So in that case I am speaking from experience.

    Brian Anderson,

    Let’s discuss hate, and how you are coming on here specifically to attack people. Let’s discuss the fact that you use the phrase “gay community” as if the gay population is a monolith and exists separate from normal society. Let’s discuss the fact that gay bashing is still something some people do. Let’s discuss how more than one serial killer used Craigslist to find victims. The more you allow straight men who say they are seeking trans or couples the more likely you are to have someone that is going to kill someone. The Mathew Sheperd story one theory is two straight guys picked him up for some fun or told him that’s what they wanted and then tortured and beat him to death. The more you allow straight men on grindr the more likely you are allowing that story to repeat itself. There is a big difference between hate and concern for my safety. I don’t think Grindr should allow users with a history of sexual offenses but Grindr allows those as well. The fact that you jumped in to bash what you call “the gay community” would indicate that it is you who are hateful and the problem.

    Justen,

    I have asked that question of trans people themselves. If you identify as a female and are attracted to men then you are not gay, you are actually straight. I have never received an answer as to why trans people are grouped with gay people, other than the comment of gay guys are very feminine, and then look at me and say well most and lesbians are masculine. That is why trans are grouped with gays because of the stereotype that gay guys are very feminine.

    I find it surprising that it seems so many men on grindr are coming out saying they are gay men who are attracted to men, who look and represent as men and there is not a grey area in that attraction. Yet grindr operates as if their base customers/users are not made uncomfortable by women - those born as women, those who identify as women or those who present as women and at what point do they realize they are making the group the app was created to help uncomfortable and even isolating them. They are losing those the app was created to assist.

    I feel like allowing straight women on defeats the purpose of having a space for gay men. A safe space for gay men to meet other gay men. If we define a woman as anyone who has secondary sexual characteristics of female or identifies as a female and who is attracted to men. If you do not have the secondary sexual characteristics of a male you will not be be able to engage in some of the activities I enjoy.

    Let’s just drop the lie of “you’ll never be able to tell.” I work in customer service while in college. One customer made a comment to a regular about trans politics or something. The regular said oh I’m trans … The other customer said yeah I figured. My one employee said I always thought there was something odd about him. My response was yeah I knew that from the first time I saw him. Yet somehow some seem to think I won’t notice that fact while we are up close and naked.

    I saw a profile for a straight cis woman on grindr. I guess the thought is if you’re going to allow straight trans women on grindr you should allow straight cis women on grindr. How about you grow up and realize that just as much as I can support equal rights for women without be romantically or sexually interested in them and so I don’t want to see their profiles on any relevant app I can also support trans rights without being romantically or sexually interested in them and so I don’t want to see their profiles either. Respect is a two way street, if you give me my space I’ll give you your space, that’s all I’m asking for.

    S Kelly Smith,

    It’s interesting how you want to point out that trans are part of the LGBTQ+ community but you made no mention of lesbians. Did you forget the L that begins the LGBTQ+? If you truly want to be nondiscriminatory then you should be advocating for allowing straight people on Grindr too. Don’t act like you don’t discriminate when you do it’s just against different groups. There is a word for people like you, it’s hypocrite.

    If you are an advocate for all the LGBTQ+, because you forgot the P and the NB and I’m sure there are others, why aren’t you arguing that lesbians should be on grindr. Lesbians would be the L in that string of letters. If you’re going to allow straight women, because trans women attracted to men are straight women. Why would grindr allow straight men, gay men, bi men and straight women but not lesbians?

    You kind is hit the point of everyone needs to be respected. To that end grindr was created for gay men to meet other gay men, those who identify as women should respect that the majority of grindr users have no interest in a sexual relationship with women. So why would the be on grindr?

    Noraseth Hemvech that seems to be common sense and that is why it doesn’t happen, because common sense is not common and nobody uses it. My understanding is that trans people want to be viewed by how they identify and grindr is an app for gay guys so if you regardless of xx, xy, xxy, xyy, xxyy or whatever your chromosomes are I am not sure why you are on the app. It gets even more complicated when they identify as a man but refuse to have the bottom surgery as it is called. I though grindr was an app for those with penises who like others with penises no vagina included.

    Cavanaugh Quick wow you really missed the point. Last time I checked a guy attracted to women and a woman attracted to guys are straight. If we are suppose to identify people not by their birth sex or chromosome but by how they identify then why are there women looking for guys who want to have sex with women and guys looking for women to have sex with on an app created for gay guys, guys who want to have sex with other guys? Grindr could take away the tags of female, grindr could let people report profiles for having postings like m/f couple looking no guy on guy action. I have received messages from a profile like that, I blocked them and then received another message from a profile that looked exactly the same the next day. I am assuming one profile was the wife, what is a straight married cis woman doing on app for gay guys?

    7celo, I’m not a quitter I try to improve things and fix problems when I see them not just say f it and walk away. Plus grindr or apps like it are the only way to meet gay guys where I live. Although I have bumped into a couple trans individuals at the gas station

    Daddy Dentata hate to break the news to you but LA is one city. Most of the world is nothing like LA. I probably have more property than you and pay less in taxes, although living in LA you probably do not own property but rent part of a building and call it an apartment. How many miles do the profiles go till you hit the xtra that you have to pay for? Closest profile to me right now is 4 miles away, Just because my experience is different than yours does not make it bullshit, it makes your post bullshit.

    ⵔⵢⴰⵏ ⴰⵣⴰⵢⴽⵓ you are wrong and you are missing the point. I have had user looking for trans or women message me, I do not know why nothing about my profile says I am trans. Also I do not want women messaging me because I am gay and so I am not interested in women. Also a couple days ago I had a male and female couple message me looking for another guy to have sex with his wife, no male on male action. Why is a straight woman on what is suppose to be a gay app looking to have sex with men? There are a lot of user based problems and grindr blocks them for being underage or fake profiles. Ignorance is a choice.
