Dear Daily Beast and Nico Hines:
Thank you for your article on the use of dating apps in the Olympics by the athletes.
Thank you for going into these dating apps, creating an account, and looking at the profiles of athletes with no intention of using the app for its intended purpose. You didn’t technically lie to anyone, we know. You told them you were a reporter when they responded, even though the very act of being on these apps suggest that you are here for more than a simple interview.
Thank you for focusing on the gay athletes that responded to you. We understand, gay people just tended to want more sex than straight people. We get it, it’s not like dating apps can sometimes be the only way for anyone who identifies as anything other than straight to approach others romantically without having to be in danger, or so we thought.
