  1. Maybe it was trained to help grab the stuff from the top shelves?
  2. A number of users on TikTok and Twitter have exploited Grindr’s explore feature to zoom in on the Olympic Village in Tokyo and expose the profiles of queer athletes competing in the Summer Olympics, including at least one athlete from a country where same-sex sexual relations are illegal. According to a report in Insider, multiple users have posted videos showing the faces and profiles of Olympic athletes. One of the athletes whose Grindr profile was exposed comes from a country where same-sex sexual relations are a crime. Twitter and Grindr issued statements saying the posts violated their rules of conduct, and while TikTok has failed to respond to requests for comment, the popular short-form video-sharing platform has apparently removed the offending videos. One video referenced by Insider and viewed by Out (which we will not be linking to) showed dozens of profiles with clearly identifiable faces. The video had more than 10,000 likes at the time of writing. "I used Grindr’s explore feature to find myself an Olympian boyfriend," the user lightheartedly said while scrolling through profiles located at the Olympic Village. The video was apparently removed by TikTok for violating community guidelines, but a later post from the same user appeared to mock the removal, as well as the public backlash to his actions. "Is it me?” the shirtless young man said in the follow-up video. "Am I the drama? I don’t think I’m the drama. Maybe I am? Am I the villain? I don’t think I’m the villain?" Commenters on the videos were quick to point out the danger such exposure could bring to gay athletes who are still in the closet. "Don't put these peeps in jeopardy just to get off on the other side of the world," one commenter posted. A spokesperson for Twitter quoted by Insider said the posts "violated the Twitter Rules against hateful conduct and will need to be removed before the account owners can continue to use Twitter." A spokesperson for Grindr also told Insider that the users who posted the videos "are in breach of Grindr's Terms and Conditions of Service which prohibit them from publicly displaying, publishing, or otherwise distributing any content or information that are part of the Grindr services. Out of respect for our users' privacy, and out of respect for the contractual commitments these individuals made, Grindr demands that these individuals remove their social media posts that include images from the Grindr platform." This, unfortunately, isn't the first time the popular gay dating and hookup app has been used in dangerous ways by some of its users. Last year, authorities in Egypt were accused of using the app to identify queer folks for arrest and torture at the hands of police and the country’s National Security Agency. Also last year, a teenager was tortured and left partially paralyzed by a Jeffrey Dahmer fan he met on Grindr. Chance Seneca, 19, allegedly attempted to strangle Holden White, who was 17 at the time, as well as amputate his hands. "When I wake up, I am in his bathtub naked," White recalled earlier this year. "The water is running, and it's cold. He is in the process of doing my left wrist. He was slicing it like this and was very, very hard. It was to the point that he was basically trying to cut off my hands." In March, a man pled guilty to false imprisonment, aggravated assault, and other charges for his role in a brutal, drug-frenzied torture of an elderly man that included the use of an electric drill, taser, pruning shears, knives and worse. Charlie Caire, 20, admitted to using the app to specifically target the man for assault. His brother, Brett Caire, 36, was also arrested for the horrific attack. In May, police in Atlanta issued a warning about one and possibly up to three men using Grindr to lure gay men for robbery and assault, warning that at least eight gay men had been robbed, sometimes violently, after the conclusion of their first date. And at the 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, The Daily Beast journalist Nico Hines, a straight man, wrote a controversial piece where he used Grindr to try to find LGBTQ+ athletes, outing them to the world. Hines issued an apology after facing backlash and was suspended from The Daily Beast for several months. Out of respect for the athletes' privacy and concern for their safety, Out has chosen not to identify the accounts posting the videos. https://www.out.com/news/2021/7/28/closeted-olympic-athletes-are-being-outted-tiktokers-using-grindr
  3. It's gotten worse. Apologies such as "The guy was blinded by his girlfriend pushing him to continue hitting him" have made its way to the press. The summary was unsealed yesterday. Turns out they even injured him with a crystal bottle and a metallic object besides the punching and kicking. Bastards.
  4. Por maricón Hay quien defiende que el crimen de Samuel Luiz no es homófobo, puesto que sus asesinos no lo conocían. Los de mi clase no sabíamos si Manolito era marica, pero lo parecía, y eso bastaba y basta para humillarlos LUZ SÁNCHEZ-MELLADO 08 JUL 2021 - 05:00 CEST Concentración en A Coruña en repulsa por el asesinato de Samuel Luiz la noche del pasado sábado.ÓSCAR CORRAL MÁS INFORMACIÓN Samuel Luiz: los golpes apagaron la luz tranquila que llenó muchas vidas En mi cole había un niño de pelo rojo rabioso, pecas hasta en las cejas, labio leporino severo y una voz de pito tartaja perdida que solo le oíamos cuando la señorita lo castigaba sacándolo a cantar la lección a la pizarra. Narbona, que así se apellidaba el compa de cuyo nombre no me acuerdo, lo tenía todo para ser el blanco perfecto de los cafres de la clase, pero, siéndolo, no era su predilecto. Ese era Manolito, cuyo apellido sí recuerdo, pero omito por si acaso. Listo, lánguido, largo y flaco como un palo, sin el menor interés por el fútbol ni las peleas de gallos de sus congéneres, Manolito era la alegría del recreo de las chicas. Rajaba cual loro, guardaba secretos bajo torturas, sujetaba la goma más alto, batía la comba más rápido y hacía de bruja del tren de la bruja mejor que todas nosotras juntas. Todas lo adorábamos, claro, pero ninguna salimos a defenderlo cuando crecimos y alguno de los salvajes que antes solo lo ignoraban empezaron a llamarlo marica. Nunca le pedí perdón ni me lo perdoné a mí misma. Hay quien defiende que el crimen de Samuel Luiz, un chico de 24 años al que mataron de una paliza al grito de “maricón”, no es homófobo, puesto que sus asesinos no lo conocían y no sabían si era marica. Tampoco los cafres ni las chicas de mi clase sabíamos si lo era Manolito. Puede que ni lo supiera él mismo, a sus 10 añitos. Pero lo parecía. Y eso bastaba y basta para humillarlos. También hay quien dice que, a fuerza de usarlo en otros contextos, “maricón” no es un insulto, como tampoco “cabrón” o “hijoputa”. Pues miren, no. Llamar a un ajeno “maricón” es homófobo. Y a una ajena “puta”, machista. Lo saben. Lo sabemos. Llamemos a las cosas por su nombre. Por cierto, Narbona se operó la boca y mutó en maromazo. A Manolito le perdí la pista. Me gusta imaginarlo, tantos años después, siendo feliz como quiera que sea. Desde aquí le pido diculpas por mí y por mis compañeras.
  5. Now they're also adding "The guys were too drunk" in the news. As if that would excuse them somehow. Sickening.
  6. SMH. I hope the LGBT community does not stay quiet and let them get away with this escape route. Every day gay men get attacked, be it verbally or even physically, by people that don't know them or have confirmation of their sexuality. Being sure doesn't matter to the attacker. That cannot be an excuse. "They were just saying it as an insult". It's not the same saying that to a jock than to a somewhat effeminate guy while you and your gang of friends hit him until he's he's longer responding. Denying this is irresponsible.
  7. I hate how they are trying to turn this into "The killers didn't know him so they didn't know he was gay, so they didn't really mean it when they were shouting "Faggot" while beating him to death". Newsflash: every day members of the LGBT community have to deal with people that don't know them saying stuff about them, sometimes directly to them, sometimes to others or even to themselves but with a tone and intention to be heard. The guy was doing a videocall with one of his lesbian friends and her girlfriend, I'm sure he was acting like many gay guys would and this was noticed by the animals that killed him. The saddest part is seeing the "but they didn't know him, so they couldn't have known he was gay" narrative invading not only social media but the press. Where are those people living?
  8. NEWS ‘Justice for Samuel’: Outrage in Spain over the fatal beating (and possible homophobic murder) of a 24-year-old Samuel Luiz, 24, died early Saturday in the Spanish city of A Coruña after a fatal beating by a group of people near a nightclub. The Police already questioned 13 people on Monday and the security cameras that recorded what happened are being essential in the investigation. The first hypotheses suggest that it all began with a dispute over a mobile phone from one of the friends Samuel was with. Apparently, the young woman made a video call and the attackers thought she was recording them. They approached her violently and Samuel tried to reassure them. One of them punched him and then the rest joined in kicking the victim until they decided to flee and leave him half dead on the ground. He died when he was taken by ambulance to the hospital. One of Samuel’s friends explained that the beating occurred while they yelled “fag” at him. In a tweet, another friend of the victim, who was not present at the time of the attack, claims that he was killed because of his sexual orientation. This message has set fire to social networks. Through the ‘hashtag’ #JusticiaParaSamuel, many Internet users, including politicians and artists, have asked for justice and for the crime to be clarified. For their part, the Police have not confirmed until now that there was a homophobic motivation in the murder. The delegate of the Executive in Galicia, José Miñones, said this Monday that no hypothesis is ruled out. Miñones asked “prudence and respect for the work of the Police, which continues with the open investigation.” Meanwhile, the subdelegate of the Government in A Coruña, María Rivas, commented that “it is a specific event”, without confirming that it was a homophobic attack. The Minister of Equality, Irene Montero, condemned what happened and asked to build “a freer society in which we leave no room for hatred”. “All the affection to his family and friends. What a sad day! Personal, social and legal reproach for those who overflow with brutality and homophobia,” wrote the head of the Ecological Transition, Teresa Ribera. Likewise, LGTBI associations have organized rallies in several cities to denounce what they consider to be a homophobic crime.
  9. So angry at how some try to brush off the homophobic angle I was gladly surprised to find the manifestations downtown tonight completely packed with thousands claiming for justice. Spain: Police probe suspected hate crime targeting gay man Published July 5, 2021 11:53 a.m. ET Updated July 5, 2021 4:34 p.m. ET By The Associated Press Staff The rainbow flag with a black ribbon flutters during a protest against the killing of Samuel Luiz in the Puerta del Sol in central Madrid, Spain, Monday, July 5, 2021. Authorities in northwestern Spain are asking for time to fully investigate why a 24-year-old man was beaten to death, a crime that has triggered widespread condemnation because friends of the victim claim he was targeted for being gay. LGBTQ activists have called for protests in dozens of cities across Spain later on Monday and members of Spain's left-wing Cabinet have condemned the death of Samuel Luiz in the early hours of Saturday as a hate crime. Police are reviewing surveillance cameras and questioning over a dozen suspects and witnesses who saw how Luiz was beaten to death outside a nightclub in the city of A Coruña. The death comes amid a spike in attacks on LGBTQ people. (AP Photo/Bernat Armangue) MADRID -- Authorities in northwestern Spain are asking for time to fully investigate the death of a 24-year-old man that sparked widespread condemnation after friends of the victim claimed he was targeted and beaten to death for being gay. LGBTQ2S+ activists have called for protests in dozens of cities across Spain later on Monday and members of Spain's left-wing Cabinet have condemned the death of Samuel Luiz in the early hours of Saturday as a hate crime. Police are reviewing surveillance cameras and questioning over a dozen suspects and witnesses who were outside a nightclub in the city of A Coruna at the time the crime took place, the government's delegate in the northwestern Galicia region said Monday. Luiz's friends told Spain's El Mundo newspaper that the suspects began attacking Luiz, who was on a video call with a friend at the time, because they believed he was trying to record them. The attackers used a derogatory word for homosexuals, according to the friends' version of the events. “We are at the early stages, only the investigation will tell us if whether it was a homophobic crime or not,” the delegate, Jose Minones, told reporters. He called for “prudence” in depicting the events. No arrests have been made so far, Minones said. The death comes amid a spike in attacks on LGBTQ2S+ people. Activist groups claim that official statistics only capture a fraction of the problem because many incidents are not reported. Social Rights Minister Ione Belarra was criticized by many on social media for being too quick in condemning Luiz's death as a “hate crime” when she sent a tweet on Sunday with her condolences to the victim's relatives and friends. “We want a country free of violence where everybody feels free to be who they are,” Belarra tweeted
