You’d think not being a dick would be an easy rule to abide by on gay dating apps yet, here we are, struggling to find a literal dick not attached to a bigot. It’s a constant stew of no fats, no femmes, and masc for masc muscle jocks, which is where gay dating app Chappy comes in.
While some people are making 2018 pledges to finally give versatility a try, they’re launching a new pledge for their users and asking them to stop being dicks and just swipe left. After all, what’s the point of matching with someone you’re not into, right?
As part of the pledge, Chappy brought together 16 gay men for a video that isn’t a porno. Instead, they’re talking about their experiences on dating apps and revealing the ugly reality of “rampant underlying racism, ageism, fat and fem shaming” they suffer through in hopes of finding Prince Charming.
