Back down. I would also be shocked at anyone for talking to me in this way as well, yes even on grindr. If someone was really interested, a simple ‘hello, how are you?’ would be perfectly acceptable.
Shocked? You’d be shocked? Do you know what shock even is? Please! At 1:30am you wouldn’t be on Grindr for a nice “hello how are you?” You’d be on there trawling for cock. Which is what the OP was doing. Maybe at 1:30 in the afternoon you’d be on there for the conversation. At 1:30am, your mission would be penis. And even if your morally incorruptible and holy self were genuinely shocked by this message, the ageist, slut-shamey response would still be completely out of line. Sorry, but you can take your over-christianised sense of moral value elsewhere. How’s that for backing down?
Yes, I know what shock is. Don’t go there.
And you’re wrong. If I do go on Grindr in the early hours of the morning, then it is not for ‘cock’. You don’t automatically know what everyone does with grindr. I and 90% of people who speak to me at that hour end up having a good chat without talking about each other’s genitals. Most of the time I do get something on the lines of ‘hello, how are you?’ If they are trying to get with me, then OK, but at least they are being polite and tactical about it. I mean what chance does anyone stand if they say that sort of thing to someone else from the start? If one were to go to a gay bar at night and have a complete stranger say that to them, they would also be repulsed. If you think it’s OK to speak to strangers just like that because we are gay, then it’s people like you who are aiding in promoting unhelpful prejudices like ‘gays are all slutty’ etc, that are detrimental (having a negative effect on something) to our place in society.
And I’m an atheist. I have no christianised sense of morals etc. I am a moral person, but not on the basis of Christianity. Do your research before you accuse, OK?
P.S. I saw your post on gay marriage. If you don’t want to get married, then don’t. But if other people want to get married, then don’t whine about it.Source: princeknowles
