Grindr and the Trolls Who Dwell Within
Grindr was a dating app created on March 25, 2009. Yes, you read that right. It was a "dating app." Crazy to see how almost 10 years later it's a pool of headless bodies, unwarranted penis pictures, s...

LGBTQIA People Aren't Oversensitive, They're Just Bored of Being Used as a Punchline
