Detectives who have done investigations found that over 30 cases of child rape in the UK since 2015, based on the national newspaper, The Sunday Times.
To lure their underage victims, malefactors used dating apps like Tinder and Grindr.
Recently, a 13 year-old-boy from Yorkshire was apparently contacted by men using the dating apps he had signed up for, including Grindr and Badoo.
From using online dating services, there were already found sixty (60) further cases of child offenses that included sexual assault, kidnapping, and grooming as seen on the police documents by the paper following the Freedom of Information (FOI) request.
In another incident, an eight-year-old boy from Lincolnshire reported to the newspaper that a pedophile sent him a photo of a “sexual nature” and had “sexual conversation” with him, after being groomed on an unnamed dating up.
Grindr was already taking steps to remove underage users and, as the spokesperson told Pinknews, they were “saddened” about the Sunday Time’s investigation report.
“Grindr is committed to creating a safe and secure environment to help our community connect and thrive, and an account of sexual abuse or other illegal behavior is troubling to us as well, as it is a clear violation of our terms of service,” the spokesperson said.
This was to show that Grindr does not tolerate such illegal behavior as it also encourages users to report improper or illegal behavior.
“We encourage users to report improper or illegal behavior either within the app or directly via email to [email protected]”
They are also working on the update to improve their digital and human screening tools to prohibit underage users from signing up as much as possible.
“In addition, our team is constantly working to improve our digital and human screening tools to prevent and remove improper underage use of our app.”
In a now deleted Facebook post, Strategic Power for Animal Respondents – Philippines (SPAR) urged the authorities of Puerto Prinsesa to investigate the alleged rape of a dog by a group of men in Barangay San Pedro.
They said that raping a dog is a form of animal abuse and must be stopped as the suspects can also be a threat to the community.
It is said that SPAR’s own investigation in the city soon by Norman Marquez, the para-legal support in Palawan.
A few days ago, a netizen named Riesan Hermosa posted screenshots of two men talking in an app called Grindr. The first guy was urgent the other one to join in on performing sexual intercourse with the dog.

A netizen has called for help of authorities as a dog was the subject for a gang rape in San Pedro, Puerto Princesa, Palawan.
In a now-deleted Facebook post, Riesan Hermosa posted screenshots of a conversation between two Grindr users. Man with username raretrip was encouraging the other to take part in a gang rape.
Who was the subject? His dog.
He then stated that there has been a lot of guys who had the chance to have an intercourse with his pet.
Adding to the horror of the mere thought of people sexually harassing the dog, he sent pictures of other men doing so.
Hermosa said that her Facebook post regarding the incident kept on getting deleted due to the sensitive photos which is why she chose to upload the screenshots on Twitter as well.
A Dog was the subject for Gang raped in San Pedro Puerto Princesa, Palawan.
FB has shut down my post becuase the photos were sensitive but we need to get this news viral so people can identify
— Riesan Hermosa (@Riepunzel5) January 9, 2019
Netizens have reacted, saying how they are disgusted and horrified about the dog rape. Many of them has urged people to report it to the Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS).
We need to have more sense of urgency on this. Rather than merely retweeting this for awareness, hope everyone who sees this takes their time to report this to PAWS.
— Cammila (@lordmeowmits) January 10, 2019
Animal welfare advocate and PAWS spokesperson Heart Evangelista has also reacted to the viral tweet saying that she hopes that it is not real.

PAWS has yet to release a statement regarding the matter.
The phrase ‘big d*ck energy’ has been treated as a meme on social media these days and this guy’s situation made it a little bit ironic and amusing.
19-year-old Fredy Alanis told the story of how sucking his hook-up partner’s 10-inch tool landed him in a hospital.
The incident happened seven months ago but the teenager only posted it on his Twitter account on July 5. His photo immediately became viral and he willingly told how the seemingly impossible situation happened.
Alanis started off saying that he found his old neighbor on Grindr, which is a social networking app for the LGBTQ+ community. “He’s, like, four years older than I am, so I knew who he was, but we never hung out or anything before,” he stated in an interview with LGBTQ online magazine, Them.
The night after they met and did the deed, he felt soreness in his chest but it didn’t hurt a lot so he proceeded to ignore it. He started to feel the pain the next morning.
The teenager had his mom drive him to the hospital without telling her what happened and he also didn’t tell the doctors right away.
He was said to have a rupture in his airway and as he was in the hospital for three days, he eventually told the doctors the story.
“I had to pull something out of my ass really quick to cover it up. I was in the hospital for three days. I felt like, eventually, I had to tell the doctors exactly what happened to be treated the right way. It was January 3rd, so I was starting off the new year in the hospital.”
When it comes to his mom’s knowledge of the situation, however, it’s a different story.
“I haven’t told my mom. My post has made it to facebook and I guess it’s circulating there, so it’s a matter of time. I have accepted the fact. I have to let them see it on their own,” Alanis admitted.
He clarified that his parents know that he’s gay, but he didn’t want them to think that he’s a whore.
Ever since his tweet went viral, he said that the response has been crazy. “I’ve gotten people, homophobic douchebags, messaging me and telling me to gas myself.”
All the negative things aside, Alanis said that majority of the people found it quite funny.
He also informed that he has been seeing the guy since and he did tell him what happened. And yes, they have hooked up again but his partner is said to be a lot less rough compared to the first time.
“He’s more cautious and aware of what he’s doing. I don’t want to be in the hospital! He told me he felt so bad. He works in an ambulance so he’s pretty aware of the human body and what’s possible. I was texting him on my way to the hospital and I said my chest is really hurting and he said he hoped he didn’t cause it because he knows it’s possible.”
In the end, Alanis advised everyone not be intimidated by any length and just go for it, but remember: “Don’t play too rough, though.”
NPNR. No chub. Fit 4 Fit. You go to the gym?
Aren’t we all fed up when someone asks this *whispers on Grindr*? Well, I get it. It’s your preferences, it is not something I should meddle with.
But guess what, you are one selective human being! If you are not into chubs, you might be missing out! Well, to lay down the things why you are probably should get yourself a stocky guy, here you go. You can thank us later!
When you are in a relationship with a chubby guy, food is not a problem. You can eat whatever you want, whenever you want! No to strict diet, yes to carbs! I mean, being ripped doesn’t mean you are healthy. Abs don’t equate good health, remember? This is to say that while overeating can cause you more trouble, depriving yourself with that extra rice is as sad.
No, you’re misinterpreting this! This is not body shaming, instead, we glorify that extra flab. Imagine comparing sleeping on a toned, rock-hard body of a gym-goer from a soft, comfortable chubby man’s bod? Which one would you take? See, you are getting there. And speaking of pillows, they are also good in bed. *winks*
With those puffy cheeks and giggly laugh, who would not fall in love? A smile that would comfort you after a grueling day at work. Arms that are ready to protect you from all the harm world has in store for you. They may be soft, but they are tough.
If you are partnered with a gym buff, the pressure is all on you. You have to work out too, am I right? You don’t want to miss out, do you? But imagine hanging out with a carefree man? That gaining a little weight is not a problem as long as you are physically healthy.
Just like what number four suggests, they rarely go to the gym. This means that the hours they should be spending on working out is an extra for you! They value time, for sure. They’d rather take you to the new restaurant across the street than burn hours while burning carbs.
Lastly, they are, indeed, stick to one. Proven and tested. They are the happiest ones, and they are also the most loyal people in the world. They have experienced too much pain already, and they don’t want it to happen to you. If they love you, it’s all happiness. Bumps cannot be avoided, but they maneuver well.
So, the next time you’d see a chub, don’t underestimate them. Try to know them better and look through them. They are beyond toned abs and ripped muscles.
At the end of the day, muscles and abs may shrink but never the affection of chubby lads. Trust me, we’ve seen it all.
Extra Rice please!
What do you think guys? Share us your thoughts.
Relax, my ‘Gay’ is gender-inclusive, but I want to highlight all the sassy gay men out there. And how difficult it really is for them to find the L-word.
Here’s a thing, actually two.
First, you did not choose to be gay (this is for a fact that gender is a choice) to live a heterosexual life. Maybe, just maybe, monogamy is only for the man-woman relationship.
Second, it is easy to find a gay man whom you can admire and who would admire you back, but love? We don’t speak that language, honey.
With the overly advanced technology we enjoy today, you can easily find a guy (Hello, Grindr!) but what can you not find in an instant?
Relationship that lasts a lifetime. Admit it or not, we still have that straight men’s instinct that we don’t want to get stuck in an awful 5-year relationship. And since we have explored our sexuality way more than straight men do, we tend to grow worse.
With all the million fish in the sea, name one gay who would not enjoy swimming in it. I hear ‘none’.
I mean, it’s pretty accessible. Go online, hundreds of gay men are available within your radius. Go to a bar, you would meet thousands. See? It’s not that hard. If and only if, you are not looking for love. Lust maybe, you would enjoy different taste every single day.
I know, for sure, that one day while you’re sipping that hot double shot espresso latte you paid for an unreasonable price, you’d realize. You have grown tired sleeping in a bed with different guys every night. That you are lonely, and you need something constant in your life.
One way or another, you will be fed up with the way you handled things before. You would ask, what if you settle with just one great man? I know, it might be disgusting at first, but your body would crave for it.
This is the time that I’m invalidating my nasty few statements in the beginning of this article. You would soon believe that a love like Francis Libiran and Christian Mark’s could exist.
Isn’t it wonderful? Waking up with the same man you love every day–seeking comfort with his hugs every night? Someone you can be spontaneous and crazy with, without getting conscious if you were being too effeminate? That’s pretty much what love is.
If only you can put down your list of standards for your future partner, and accept the fact that you can never find the man of your dreams. Instead, you would find the man of your reality.
He might be a little short than what you expected, does not go to gym, but hey! He can be the guy who can relate to your ugly stories and still laugh at it. That guy might not know how to cook, but he knows every great restaurant there is.
You might not realize this anytime soon, but I’m very sure, you’d come looking after it.
Now, if you’re asking me how hard it is to find love if you are gay, my answer is NO. It’s not ‘love’ that is hard to find, it’s you who don’t want to find it… yet.

While most religions frown upon homosexuality, some are more tolerant of the gay lifestyle. And then there’s this pastor who really hates gays. His name is Reverend Matthew Makela of St. John’s Lutheran Church and School in Midland, Michigan.
On his Facebook page, he would constantly be posting religious passages, many of which were targeting homosexuals.
Of course, his bio on the church’s website did not specifically reflect his stand against gays (but the bio was soon deleted after the exposé by Queerty went viral).
Makela is a pastor of the Lutheran Church, married, and has 5 children. Given this and his vitriolic Facebook posts, it came as a total surprise that the pastor had a big secret: that he himself was gay.
It was on the gay dating app Grindr where Makela explored his hidden homosexuality.
The complete opposite of his posts on Facebook as the reverend, his persona on Grindr was very flamboyant, sensual, and enjoyed talking about gay matters such as being “the top”, enjoying a cuddle, and loving an oral and a massage (you get the drift).
When the exposé went viral, he confirmed that the exchange on Grindr was authentic but refused to comment about the issue. It was shortly afterwards that his bio on the Lutheran church’s website was deleted. Apparently, Makela had resigned.
The church has deactivated its Facebook account “in an attempt to remove the opportunity for malicious posters to have access to St. John’s members”, according to Reverend Daniel Kempi, the Senior Pastor of St. John’s in a separate report posted on Queerty.
Aside from deactivating their social media account, the church through Rev. Kempi lamented Makela’s resignation.
Kempi encouraged its congregation to not the read Makela’s Grindr story, supposedly adding this to a letter read before the congregation:
To make matters worse, the details of sin that have been kept confidential are being posted online by those who seek to do harm to the Makela family and to St. John’s. This is taking an already difficult situation and making it even more painful.
A woman who accidentally found her husband in gay dating app Grindr was distraught over the discovery, especially after she realized it really was him on the photo and he was looking for hook ups.
She turns to a parenting forum site for help, asking other moms what they would have done if they were in her shoes. The predicament is crazy, considering she never had an inkling her husband was gay and because they had been married for years.
“Hello. Hands shaking. Today I found my DH on Grindr.Without a doubt it is him. Posing in our ensuite bathroom. Confronted him. Says it is not him but refuses to let me see his phone. He is refusing to talk to me. Two children. 7 and 10. I am 43. Dont know what to do. Please some advice.”
They have two kids, ages 7 and 10. These little ones will be surely affected when the truth comes out, when they realize their dad is gay, and when their parents end up getting a divorce. Thus, we understand how the mother feels.
Did she try to ask her husband about the situation? Well, she actually did because part of her could not believe it was him. He vehemently denies it was him despite the picture clearly showing him in their ensuite bathroom. Also, he would not let him check his phone.
Desperate for answers, she downloaded the app on her phone as well. There, she was even more dismayed by what she found out about her husband’s profile and activities on the app site.
Her problems do not stop there because even if she wanted to divorce him, she does not have enough funds to hire a lawyer. Plus, she does not want to embarrass her kids and make a lot of trouble for her husband.
The dilemma is huge but what else could she do. If you were in her shoes, would you leave your husband or would you confront him and make him stop his activities on Grindr? What else would you do?
