Computer Hacker Tricks Straight Guys Into Hitting On One Another On Tinder

Tinder

There is a programmer who is pranking straight men into hitting on one another all over Tinder, and it’s as hilarious as it is depressing.

If you were to ask a gay man what Tinder is, chances are he’d describe the popular matchmaking app as the straight answer to Grindr. In some ways that’s totally true. Both mobile services connect people through their smartphones for dates (ostensibly) and hookups (more commonly.)

Tinder1But there are two things Tinder has that Grindr doesn’t that make the platforms fundamentally different: (legit) straight men and the women they’re pursuing. As ridiculous as many gay act in their digital pursuits of one another, we’ve got nothing on a determined straight man with a woman in his sights.

Using a series of rather easy to find exploits built into Tinder’s API, the unnamed programmer decided to have a bit of fun with some of Tinder’s more insistent men. The social experiment begins with an automated bot with a relatively simple profile that instantly responded to anyone who swiped right on it and attempted to strike up a conversation.

Rather than let the interactions stay strictly between the unsuspecting man and the automated profile, the programmer would connect two unsuspecting straight guys and let them try to work things out amongst themselves.

To be clear, the goal of the programmer’s project was never to make fun of or embarrass anyone for using Tinder. Rather, the point was to highlight the level of casual, unsolicited harassment that men often level at women in online spaces.

"They ignore all the signs, they ignore all the weird things," the programmer explained to The Verge. "When someone is so quick to meet up without any detail or know anything about the person at all — maybe it’s deserved.”

Gay Couples Offer Dramatic Readings of Grindr Messages: VIDEO

Rj

Reading Grindr messages seems to be an endless form of entertainment. Especially for moms, as we saw yesterday.

YouTube couples RJ and Will, and Trent and Luke along with other gay YouTube personalities sat down for a riveting read of the lewd, and often hilarious, messages men send to each other on Grindr.

The messages they read run the gamut of everything from one user telling another user that they must ask their mother for permission to have sex first, to one user describing how his time spent in jail with tough men led him to "switch sides."

New Dating App Survey Reveals Interesting Figures On Gay Dating, Hook-Up Habits: INFOGRAPHIC

GrabhimA study conducted by grabhim.net found interesting data pertaining to gay mens’ dating and hookup app habits ranging from how often they send pictures of their genitals to how many users actually meet and/ or hookup with in a single month. The study consisted of asking 4,000 gay men, over the course of four weeks, to fill out a 19-question online survey centered around a general premise; how do gay men act on an app? 

The most surprising figures show that 83 percent of the 4,000 gay men polled in the study have sent pictures of their penis to another user, with only 17 percent saying they don’t send those types of pictures. Around 76 percent said they respond honestly when another user asks them about their penis size with only 3 percent saying they exaggerate their size. Most surprising of all is that 43 percent of users have not met anyone they met on the app in person within the last month; 24 percent state they physically met only one person they met online within the last month.

Unsurprisingly, 45 percent of users said they prefer a date but will go with a hookup if it seems right, while 24 percent of users solely look for hookups. Disappointing numbers show HIV stigma exists as 28 percent of men said they were unlikely to initiate contact or respond favorably to attractive men who state they’re HIV positive in their profiles, with another 29 percent saying it is highly unlikely they would do so either. Around 43 percent of HIV positive users state they disclose their status on their profile, with another 31 percent saying they disclose their status before physically meeting; only 10 percent don’t disclose their status unless asked. Surprisingly only 45 percent of guys who actually meet up don’t hook up at all, although when they do 50 percent choose to do it at home, while 50 percent pick neutral locations.

The study found that a majority of users are between 18-50 years old, with 29 percent using Grindr and 16 percent using Scruff however, the study doesn’t give those polled an option to select more than one dating app option.

3.53.

According to Time Out, that’s the number of dates you should go on with that new beau of yours before the two of you have sex for the first time. Time Out surveyed 11,000 people across the world in major metropolitan cities asking them a wide variety of questions about what turned them on in potential partners and their general dating habits. Respondents reported finding British accents the most attractive, meeting the bulk of their dates online, and thinking that halfway through the fourth date was as good a time as any to take a roll in the hay.

What say you all? How many dates should one go on before letting things get physical? Sound off in the comments.


Introducing Wankband: The Wearable Designed To Help You Stay Charged - WATCH

2015-02-26 16_24_27

One of greater hurdles facing most pieces of tech these days is battery life. You’ve been there--out on the town, heading to a bar or friend’s place, only to realize that your phone is on the brink of death with little to no chance of making it through the rest of the night. What if, you’ve undoubtedly thought to yourself, there was a way that you could charge your devices on the go? What if there was a way to harness the kinetic energy of your body’s movement to charge your smart watch in the same way that you charge your everyday wristwatch?

Soon there will be with the...provocatively named WankBand. As you might have surmised from its name the WankBand is a small wearable device that generates an electric charge while you’re...being vigorously celibate. As Caity Weaver points out writing for Gizmodo, it’s questionable just how much energy one might be able to produce while using their shake weights or mixing martinis. But then again, you’d be surprised what you can accomplish with a little bit of elbow grease and determination.

Check out the first (totally legitimate and mostly SFW) ad for the WankBand AFTER THE JUMP...

There Is a 1 in 100 Chance You Are Intersex

800px-Male_female_intersex_communication_large_arrows.svg

The recent conversations about gender expression have rightfully supplanted the ways that we once conflated psychological and sexual variance. As a society, we’ve grown become more cognizant and accepting of the ways in which one’s gender identity is not always tied to one's body. Though we’ve grown more accustomed to thinking of gender as existing on a spectrum, it’s not often that we think the same of our biological sexes.

“The main problem with a strong dichotomy is that there are intermediate cases that push the limits and ask us to figure out exactly where the dividing line is between males and females,” Arthur Arnold, a biological sex research at UCLA explained to Nature magazine. “And that's often a very difficult problem, because sex can be defined a number of ways.”

The basic biology that we’re all brought up to believe in states that men and women can be differentiated by the presence or absence of the Y chromosome. While that logic holds true in the most general of senses, a closer look at chromosomal variance reveals a much more interesting and not immediately obvious truth: in many cases physiological sex can shift on a genetic level.

Differences of sex development (DSD) manifests itself in a number of different forms depending on which different specific genes are functioning in a variety of different ways. The sort of DSD that we’re most familiar with are those in which a person’s body demonstrably belies their assumed sex such as genetically female women who discover that their gonadal tissue developed into small testes rather than ovaries. These cases, Claire Ainsworth explains for Nature, occur 1 in about every 4,500 births. If we were to take more minute sex variation into account, however, 1 in every 100 people could consider themselves intersex.

“These discoveries do not sit well in a world in which sex is still defined in binary terms.” writes Ainsworth. “Few legal systems allow for any ambiguity in biological sex, and a person's legal rights and social status can be heavily influenced by whether their birth certificate says male or female.”

Recently Thailand, India, and Australia have made small inroads in allowing for a wider variety gender representation, but Ainsworth raises a valid point. The law, generally speaking, is no friend to those in the biological in-between.
