You’re Probably Being Racist on Grindr

Controversial guest Cameron Johnson (@CameronJAwesome) is back! This week the topic is racial discrimination on dating apps, and how some platforms like Grindr are attempting to combat it.

How much of who you're attracted to is innate and how much is cultural programming? Why do people post discriminatory statements in their dating profiles?

Also discussed: gay mouth kissing, Cameron's collection of awful messages from men, and why straight men love looking at Grindr.
