A ‘Gay App’ for 12-Year-Olds, and Hey, What Could Possibly Go Wrong?

Posted on | December 15, 2013 | 46 Comments

Creeptastic software:

Some very clever Harvard types (are there any other kind?) believe that, when it comes to apps, the gay community hasn’t offered the full bloom of its most tasteful side.
So they’ve created Distinc.tt. This, they claim, is “the only gay social app approved by the iTunes store for 12-year-olds and older.” . . .
Distinc.tt “uses real-time collective knowledge to connect trendsetting crowds and travelers to the places and people that best reflect their distinct interests.” . . .
“With an emphasis on good taste, Distinc.tt is sleekly designed to easily lead users to the right event, restaurant, party, or vacation spot for the moment or upcoming calendar, where their friends are or plan to go soon.” . . .
In the iTunes store, Distinc.tt has a charming way of describing itself: “Finally, an LGBT app that you can bring home to Mom!” . . .
[CEO Michael Belkin] wants “the good-taste part of the gay stereotype to gain traction with advertisers and cross the mainstream divide.”

Oh, great: It’s time to “cross the mainstream divide” — with a gay-oriented software application approved for 12-year-olds.

    Is it time to start crossing the social divide with axe handles?

  • http://thecampofthesaints.org Bob Belvedere

    Short answer: Yes.

  • concern00

    Sometime soon something is going to break in the minds of conservatives and they’re going to get violent.

  • Jeanette Victoria

    Speaking of perverts my barnacle Thomas A Mix of Vero Beach has been working over time in the paranoid and stalking department all the while claim I’m stalking him. And it isn’t only me he has been harassing.

  • Jeanette Victoria

    Really what dose it take to protect our children from the wholesale normalization of perversity. 50 years ago folks would have simply been horrified at the idea that homosexuality would be peddled as normal and good.

  • Steve Skubinna

    Look for the bright side – maybe police departments will use this to troll for pedophiles.

    On the whole, I see way more downsides though. How long before the first distraught mother, whose son is lured to sexual violation and murder, is accused by the LGBT mafia of homophobia?

  • Zohydro

    Nah… It’s the Left that’s on the edge here! Reason will prevail in the end…

  • Zohydro

    Many still are…

    Let’s not forget that most of those peddling this crap don’t really give a rat’s ass about their precious homos! They may support homosexual “marriage”, but they’re not really pushing their own kids into the fray…

  • M. Thompson

    Well, there’s at least a minor silver lining to this large dark cloud. Cops on a pedo hunt.

  • Jeanette Victoria

    Don’t hold your breath LEOs are actively recruiting homosexuals look at this photo of the SFPD a militant lesbian and two transgenders

  • M. Thompson

    Depends on where you are.

  • concern00

    It’s the distinct lack of horror that worries me.

  • trangbang68

    Gay? There ain’t nothing gay about them. They’re miserable queers,

  • ??????

    You are kind of twisting this to fit your anti-gay narrative. It isn’t so much a dating app for 12 year old as it is a dating app that doesn’t contain raunchy content that would be unsutable viewing for people under 18.

    You are kind of creating a lose-lose situation, you complain about many gays being too raunchy, marching in their underwear or less in pride parades (a critique that I think has some merit), but then complain when someone tries to clean things up.

  • ??????

    I’m sure that notion fills you with glee.

    I don’t think that all gay people in the world are miserable, probably some are, definitely in certain parts of the US and other parts of the world, but that probably has more to do with having to deal with bullying, harassment, violence, and other external factors.

    That fact that other’s unhappiness makes some happy means that they must be a rather pathetic people. That is truly sad and it gives me no joy, but I’m glad I’m not them.

  • concern00

    Sure it will! Are you insane?

    The irony is that the gun toting red necks on the right are probably the most moral and peace loving individuals on this planet.

    “With an emphasis on good taste, Distinc.tt is sleekly designed to easily lead users to the right event, restaurant, party, or vacation spot for the moment or upcoming calendar, where their friends are or plan to go soon.”

    Am I being paranoid? This sounds to me like this “app” is luring children as young as 12 to locations where they would be subject to solicitation by adults, and iTunes is enabling this trolling for victims?

    Hey, I understand that young people can have questions or doubts about their sexuality. This isn’t directing them to social services, though.

    “…marching in their underwear or less in pride parades (a critique that I think has some merit)…”

    Buck naked, many of them, shouting at and accosting passersby, fellating and sodomizing one another in broad daylight, not caring who sees? This is “pride”? Opposing this has only SOME merit?

  • tlk244182

    You mean we must be ‘miserable breeders?’

  • http://musterion.typepad.com/blog/ Joe Dokes

    “…probably has more to do with having to deal with bullying, harassment, violence, and other external factors.”

    You are misinformed or a liar. Sodomites who for YEARS never step foot outside of Castro District-type enclaves, if they so choose, and so never see a Bible or hear a Christian have been surveyed in the past as being, on average, thoroughly unhappy with life…this while surrounded by NO ONE but like-minded sodomites and their leftist supporters, enablers and worshipers, meaning whatever bullying, harassment or violence they encounter COMES FROM OTHER SODOMITES.

    But yeah, whatever misery they still feel is the straights’ fault.

    Why just the handles? We need to go Carrie Nation on them.

    I didn’t say all straight people, actually I think a lot of people who obsess over the topic are likely closeted gays trying to deflect.

    But I think it is weird for someone who clearly hates gay people for whatever irrational reason to talk about how miserable gay people are. Being hated can make some people miserable.

  • ??????

    No. I don’t mean that. Actually I think the ones who are most obsessed over it are probably closeted homosexuals. There have been a lot of people who work for these anti gay organizations who get caught in the most embarrassing situations with their pants down.

  • ??????

    I’m sure that has happened, generally though in most places outside of Northern California and a few other coastal cities, that extreme behavior is the exception, not the rule.

    And yet the Manhattan Declaration was fully censored!

    “approved by the iTunes store for 12-year-olds and older.””

    The problem with doing away with the older man, young boy stereotypes, is reality always intrudes.

  • Zohydro

    Google Translate reveals that “????? !” is Japanese for “Richard!”…

  • Quartermaster

    You make the common intentional “mistake” that anyone the criticizes homosexuals, or hates the sordid lifestyle they lead is simply a H8er. I have as yet to meet one of those “closeted” queers you cite.

  • trangbang68

    Let me reiterate, they aren’t gay, they’re miserable queers.

  • ??????

    “”You make the common intentional “mistake” that anyone the criticizes homosexuals, or hates the sordid lifestyle they lead is simply a H8er”"

    No I have stated time and time again that that isn’t the case.
    As for anti gay people turning out to be gay here are a few:
    George Rekers formerly of FRC
    Paster Eddie Long
    Alabama AG Troy King
    Pastor Ted Haggard
    CA state Sen. Roy Ashburn

  • Quartermaster

    I didn’t say it’s never happened. I’ve seen the same thing among among both homosexual and heterosexual adulterers as well. The people I’ve known that condemned both forms of adultery the strongest were quite consistent in their lives.

    And, yes, homosexuality is a form of adultery. And such people will not enter the Kingdom of God if they continue in that lifestyle.

  • Quartermaster

    They certainly are not “gay” in any way.

  • Quartermaster

    The entire lifestyle is one of continual filth. It is no different than heterosexual swingers. It all filth.
