There's a lot of 'we' in this blog post when really it's 'I' (or 'me me me-' rather). He needs to stop participating in the culture he finds so abhorrent. I don't get what kind of 'gay Eden' he thinks existed before the gay smartphone apps came on to the scene. There's a very peculiar bent to articles like these that is almost always urban/big-city – completely dismissing complete swaths of the gay experience around the world and of people of all walks of life. There are other ways to play out your life besides trying to fulfill a collated consumer group. He also speaks in very degrading tones about men who bottom for other men which is quite literally sexist- misogynist and carries on the macho culture he is so deriding. Sounds like he needs a new city- new friends or at least to logoff Grindr.
