Hillary Clinton Honored By Gay Dating App Grindr

Patrick Howley Political Reporter

Hillary Clinton was named “Straight Ally of the Year” by the gay cell-phone dating service Grindr.

Grindr, a homosexual companion to the dating app Tindr, is a popular destination for gentlemen to find one-night stands. (RELATED: Gays Now Totally Boring)

“Grindr, which first launched in 2009, has exploded into the largest and most popular all-male location-based social network out there,” according to the app’s official website. “With more than 5 million guys in 192 countries around the world — and approximately 10,000 more new users downloading the app every day — you’ll always find a new date, buddy, or friend on Grindr.”

A Thought Catalog piece by Zach Stafford defined “The 5 Kinds of People You Will Meet on Grindr” as:

“Mr. Abdomen: (Tip: To help figure out if your Mr. Abdomen is showing you his ‘real’ genitals do a comparison of belly-buttons, that usually can help you figure out if this is actually Mr. Abdomen’s genitals or not.)”

“The Traveler: The Traveler just so happens to always be visiting that day and is in dire need of meeting up because he’s lonely or needs someone to show him the city, (sidenote: lonely is another code word for ‘let’s get naked.’)”

“The Bust: He gets his name from using head and shoulder focused pictures as his profile picture.”

“The No Face: The No Face is comparable to the creepy Homeless Man that is always hassling you to buy some obscure object while he stares at your body as if you are a piece of meat.”

“Your Boss: Yes…that’s him, stop pulling up your work’s Photo Directory and comparing this Grindr picture of him shirtless to the picture of him in a suit on your company’s website.”

Clinton is expected to announce her presidential candidacy in the spring, according to CNN.
