Apparently, it’s hard out here for a “Make America great again” pimp. Since the election, there have been myriad stories about Donald Trump supporters having difficulties dating. And I can only imagine how it must feel to be ostracized and discriminated against because of your beliefs. That thing that has never happened to me or anyone who looks like me must truly suck for them.
Fortunately, there are solutions on the horizon.
From Business Insider:
The dating game has become more political than ever. A 2016 Tinder study found 71 percent of online daters consider political differences to be a dealbreaker.
And now, two online dating sites—Trump Dating and TrumpSingles—have arisen to indulge one side of that growing divide.
How lovely. Just imagine all of the fascist fellatio and homophobic hunching these sites will cultivate. “That’s unfair,” you say. “You can’t call them bigots just because they happen to be Trump supporters on a Trump-specific dating site.”
Well, um ... as Business Insider continues:
Trump Dating also attracted criticism for striking an anti-LGBT tone right off the bat. When you kick off the process of starting a profile, you get two options for labeling yourself—“straight man” or “straight woman.”
Yet according to Trump Dating’s rather strange drop-down menus, married people are welcome. For a relationship status, the site offers options like “have a significant other,” “happily married,” and “unhappily married.”
The ethnicity options also seemed oddly specific. In addition to the typical categories, the site includes choices like “Scandinavian,” “Polynesian,” “Eastern European,” “Western European,” “Mediterranean” and “Eskimo,” a term used to label the indigenous people of Alaska, Canada and Greenland that is considered offensive and inaccurate.
Looks like a racist, smells like a racist, rides like a racist—probably a racist.
(And yes, I wrote this entire piece just to finally use some racist sex alliteration. Just be glad I didn’t use prejudiced pipe-laying or intolerant tunnel patrol.)
