Grindr Images

SwingBot and I have been busy with dating sites recently. This was part of a little gripe-fest we had about such sites.

SwingBot:

So I’ve been updating dating site profiles. My Grindr update was rejected as inappropriate. Grindr, where all the photos are blank, have no people in them, or are close ups of naked torsos.

Apparently, MY profile picture, which was fully clothed, full body, and flattering to my arm muscles was deemed offensive because it involved archery, which is against the guidelines.

Me:

Because it shows you have a hobby other than boinking?

SwingBot:

Because weapons are evil and scary.

Me:

Naw, I’m sure it’s because they want you to stay on topic: boinking. They might CLAIM it’s a no-weapons policy, but they know their audience. Boink or GTFO.

SwingBot:

Better to have a completely blank profile or a picture of a car, though.

Me:

Totally. Blank profiles mean that you’re too busy for anything other than boinking. And cars… well, CARS! Penis extensions! Boinking!

SwingBot:

But everybody tells me my guns are penis symbols!

Me:

So try a profile picture with you posing in a slouching “I’m a thug” pose with a gun near your crotch, pointing slightly to the camera. I bet THAT “weapon” picture would be okay. Archery… Not much of a penis extension there. Also, be in your early 20s for the above picture, since anyone older than that just emphasizes how ****ing stupid that kind of picture looks.
