I don’t think as a 10-year-old I knew what sexuality was, but I knew Billy and Marcello were outside of the term’s norm. And being that “If I Could Turn Back Time” was on every mixed tape I burned, I knew I probably fell outside of that norm’s perimeters too.
So what’s the problem with Grindr? Why does every guy I’ve talked to have a love/hate relationship with a simple app? Why is there a stigma automatically attached to anyone who has that little orange icon on their phone? Why have we started slut-shaming our friends and ourselves?
