    Look into her face — that is the face of evil.

    If this was Nazi Germany she would be prodding sticks into the corner of attacks to find the evil Jews.

    The Washington Examiner is a local conservative newspaper rag. They had them out for free at the metro and if I ever accidentally accept one, I drop it in the nearest recycling bin.

    This has a lock on the Pulitzer for in-depth investigative reporting.

    It would be amusing if someone in DC used Grindr near the Washington Examiner offices. and reported their results.

    maybe she learned it by watching us doing the same thing to each other?
    the not-so-warm or positive gay blog thisisfyf.com regularly exposes guys who use grindr in and around NYC in postings called GRINDRSCAPES.

    of course there are those who argue that people are putting themselves out there on a public phone application and should expect to be seen by other people. is it just me, or is there not a difference in choosing to put a profile on grindr and having that profile plastered on a blogsite without your consent? it just seems a nasty way to treat our gay brothers to treat each other.
    at least the reporter above wasn’t showing the pictures in her story and making it a game to guess the ‘hood they were hooking up in.

    Wow, there are so many inconsistencies. As a regular user of GrindR, I can tell you that it’s not accurate, and most of the men it loads on the screen haven’t been on-line in days. She acts like it’s an accurate GPS queer locator. What a !@#$%^ she is.

    uhm, that could possibly be the dumbest thing I’ve seen in a while. Can I sue that chipmunked faced girl for wasting about three minutes of my life? I think some of brain died while that was running.

    Does she get paid for that? I need a job where I can be an ass-clown and get paid. Is the Washington-Whatever hiring?

    Her thought bubble must go something like this: “Like, Ohmigod, you guys. So, like, my totes awesome, like, in-depth investigation is getting sooo many hits, you guys! I am so gonna win, like, so many awards for this. My high school teachers said I would never be a serious, like, journalismist, but look at me now! Ooh and look, my iPhone totally has ah-mazing reception here! Wow, I’m surprised so many gays have the iPhone. I mean, isn’t this thingy, like, expensive?!”

    I use Grindr all to time to chat and it doesn’t just show you people right by you, there are times the thing has my location off by miles. And then it loads guys by order of how close they are, some of them can be miles away. I know I was talking to a guy the other day that was 170 miles away.

    “Darling, you should use this application and find yourself a best gay friend. You are in need of one, you need lots of tips. Specially in how to be a better person. You suck! And not in a good gay way.”

    Best. Comment. Ever.
    At least in relation to the Sassy Gay Friend videos.

    This video is incredibly stupid (as many people have noted). It will be interesting to see what the fallout will be. For example, how many people are grinding at the following places in DC – Republican National Committee, The Washington Examiner (the newpaper that published this), the Heritage Foundation, the Conservative Political Action Committee, etc. They conservative Examiner has opened a door they may regret.

    Or there may be a big rush of people removing this application from their phones. After the murder of Brian Betts is is surprising that people would still be using this.

    I guess it is as easy to get press credentials at the Obama WH as it was for James Guckert in the Bush one. I thought they only gave them to real journalists

    “When I apply generous loads of cosmetics on my face, and wear a semi-ethnic neck wrap while implicitly insulting gays, I really hope that people will focus less on my unattractive qualities and more on how politicians are gay. And how they’re gay secretly on the iPhone, not because of societal disapproval and marginalization, but because of the illicit nature of such chosen behavior. ‘Dense biggotry, there’s an app for that’.”

  13. Joseph Taylor says

    “This is Tara Polmeri reporting from any major building in D.C., making the most of my college drama major, mistaking banal cyber world developments for news. Maybe youtube will jumpstart my political career. The internet is the future of politics? I SO uncovered gay iPhone activity, this is so groundbreaking.”

  14. dwight says

    while this video is heavy on the stupid for a “newspaper”, it’s not offensive – she goes out of her way to avoid saying that grindr is where we go to find a two-sentence hookup and bills it simply as a way to see how gays are connected to positions of power – is it bad that there are gays in the congress? in the white house? in the pentagon? no! moreover, I should point out that cell phones and unsecured networks don’t work in the pentagon – she’s reading something else… admittedly, I haven’t seen the follow-up report.

  15. jamal49 says

    So, what is the “Washington Examiner”? Does anyone care? What was the point of this “reporting”? What does “connect” mean (sexual or social)? Why not expose the amount of heterosexual “connecting” that goes on in DC on Grindr (I’m sure it is five times as much)? Is this a “for real” video or is this a satire? Burning questions for a Sunday morning.
