Lesbian dating apps and sites for queer women and non-binary people 

 

Yeah, yeah, dating apps are veritable cess pits of human garbage, I know - and that's if you can actually get replies from people. But when you're lesbian, bisexual, queer, trans, non-binary, pansexual, any LGBTQIA+ identity, dating apps can connect you to people you might not encounter in your day to day life. And they can be a goddam lifeline.

Of course, most dating apps aren't build with us lot in mind. Nope, they're mainly for the straights. So, shortly after becoming single, I took it upon myself to test a variety of queer-specific and mainstream dating apps to see just how good they are for LGBTQ+ people. For context: I am a cis woman, and was up for dating people of all gender identities.

PS: Eight months later, I have a legend of a girlfriend who I met on one of these apps (but probably not the one you'd think...) during this experiment. Thanks journalism, thanks Cosmo you bloody matchmaker, I owe it all to you.

Virtual kidnappings are rattling families across the US 

 

"I have your son and I'm going to f*ck him up," a voice on the other side of the phone said.

For two hours one afternoon in early April, 61-year-old Joseph Baker and his wife Maggie drove around Charlotte, North Carolina, listening to every demand of their son Jake's supposed kidnapper.

"If you call the police, I will know and kill him," he threatened, according to the Bakers. "I have a scanner."

The caller ID on Joseph's smartphone display said the call was coming from his son's number. The couple had no reason not to believe the man on the other end of the line, who knew personal details about the family, including where they lived.

The Trevor Project launches 24/7 chat and text services 

 

The Trevor Project has been focused on preventing suicide among LGBTQ youth for two decades. Now it’s making its support available around the clock.

“The Trevor Project’s text and chat counseling services, TrevorText and TrevorChat, are now available 24/7 for the first time in the organization’s 21-year history of saving young LGBTQ lives,” The Trevor Project says in a press release.

The organization says it broadened its coverage with Generation Z in mind, especially since a third-party evaluation revealed 63 percent of youth who used The Trevor Project’s text and chat services reported doing so because they felt like it was easier to be themselves.

Why do so many gay men feel lonely? A life coach gives the unfiltered truth 

 

The gay men I work with range from their 20s to 50s. The guys in their 20s are often more attuned to coaching. They’re proactive about their growth and preempt problems by making informed choices. They can be savvy about the need for personal investment.

For older guys, certain issues come up regularly. They include learning to thrive as a gay man as they get older, finding meaningful work and creating authentic connections.

Pornhub Wants to Return Tumblr to its “Former Glory” 

 

After Tumblr banned all adult content in December, basically signing it’s own death certificate, Pornhub has reportedly said that the website is interested in restoring the microblogging service to its former glory.

Tumblr’s announcement that it would implement a ban against pornography and any possibly suggestive content created wall to wall news. Tumblr users said that the decision would decimate communities, particularly queer ones, that were sometimes meant for pleasure, other times posed as representation for minorities who didn’t see themself in mainstream pornography, and other times served as sex educators in a world where sex education is woefully lacking. Those users were right. Communities and some 150 million users disappeared as a result of the ban.

There has been no perfect replacement for the service as of yet. And if Pornhub has its way, maybe there doesn’t need to be.

India's two-week ban cost TikTok 15 million users 

 

One of China's top social media platforms saw its rapid growth braked by being temporarily shut out of India's market of 600 million internet users.

TikTok, the popular video-sharing app owned by Chinese tech giant Bytedance, missed out on adding more than 15 million users in the nearly two weeks it was blocked from downloads by the Indian government, according to a new report from analytics firm Sensor Tower.

Without the ban, April would have been TikTok's best month ever in India, the report said, adding that the app's global downloads dropped by an estimated 33% compared to the previous month.

TikTok declined to comment on the Sensor Tower report.

The app was banned in April after an Indian court ruled that it could expose children to sexual predators, pornographic content and cyberbullying. TikTok appealed the decision, saying it had cracked down on inappropriate content, and the court reversed its ruling. The government then gave Apple and Google permission to offer it for download again.

The high school teacher fired for harassing transgender student just got his job back 

 

Popping up again like a bad rash, Lee Livengood, the West Virginia assistant principal fired for harassing a transgender student, just got his job back.

The Harrison County Board of Education voted to reinstate Livengood to his role after voting unanimously to fire him in late March. District Superintendent Mark Manchin said that the move came after much discussion and deliberation–and the threat of a lawsuit from Livengood’s attorney. “I commend this board for taking the time and getting the input,” Manchin said. “We just felt it was best for the school system and best for the school that we move forward and hopefully, after today’s action, we can put this behind us and move forward, and hopefully everything will be OK.” Attorneys for Livengood had threated to hit the district with a lawsuit over Livengood’s firing, arguing that it violated his contract by terminating him.

'My gay landlord mistakenly sucked my Grindr hookup's dick' 

 

A bisexual guy shared the story of how his gay landlord ended up mistakenly sucking his Grindr hookup’s dick.

26-year-old Joe from San Francisco took to Reddit to explain the ‘wildest night’ of his life.

‘I scheduled to meet with a dude I met on Grindr over the weekend and we had only shared one pic,’ Joe wrote in a now viral post. ‘I guess over the weekend, he catches amnesia or something and completely forgets how I look.

‘Fast forward to 9:30pm and Kyle texts me that he’s at the door. I opened the door, didn’t see anyone and he had also completely ghosted me on text. I was sure at the moment I just got punk’d.

‘He calls me two minutes later and here’s when I get the climactic run down.

In The Future, Will Your Kids Be Able To Sue You For Oversharing Online? 

 

Last month, Gwyneth Paltrow got herself into a bit of parenting pickle with her daughter Apple on Instagram when she shared a ski selfie of her and the teen with her 5.4 million followers. Apparently, she did not receive permission to post the photo, which irked the 14-year-old.

“Mom we have discussed this,” Apple, whose own profile is private, shared in the comments section of Paltrow’s post. “You may not post anything without my consent.”

The media jumped on the story of the “nonconsensual selfie” ? a tale that dovetailed nicely with another news story centered on a celeb oversharer that developed a few days later, when the singer Pink drew the ire of some on the internet after sharing an image of her 2-year-old son, sans diaper. In a second revised post, a strategic black scribble covered the toddler’s private parts.

Grindr Will Be Auctioned Off Due to National Security Concerns 

 

A Chinese company that owns Grindr is being forced to sell the popular dating app following pressure from the U.S. government due to security risks.

Grindr, the world's largest app for queer people, will now be auctioned off, according to Reuters. Investment firm Cowen has already started shopping for buyers at Grindr executives’ request.

Sources say that the Committee on Foreign Investment grew agitated at Chinese ownership in part because the international sale skirted the committee’s review. Gaming company Beijing Kunlun bought a majority stake in Grindr, which operates out of West Hollywood, in 2016, and then acquired the entire company in 2017.

However, the federal agency immediately raised national security concerns about the financial situation. Now the committee is sounding the alarm over Chinese ownership of applications that track information on U.S. citizens through a forced sale.

North Carolina legislators introduce slew of pro-LGBTQ bills 

 

Lawmakers in North Carolina have introduced a trio of bills designed to protect LGBTQ North Carolinians, including legislation to halt the use of conversion therapy throughout the state.

The Mental Health Prevention Act, HB 516 and SB 426, would protect LGBTQ youth and disabled adults from attempts to change their sexual orientation or gender identity using psychological or spiritual means. In many cases, the practice of conversion therapy can be extreme, causing profound harm to those who are treated by such – including dramatic increases in suicide attempts.

How Tumblr's adult content crackdown could alienate users 

 

Tumblr says it is banning images and videos that feature "adult content," including pornography, from its platform. The change, which will start December 17, threatens to alienate some of the blogging website's most active communities.

The company said Monday that it will no longer allow any images or videos of sex acts, nor will it allow "real-life human genitals or female-presenting nipples." It will make exceptions for non-sexual content, including breastfeeding photos and "health-related situations," such as sex-reassignment surgeries and mastectomies.
