C*ckblocked app exposes all the micro-aggressive racists on Grindr

Last week we told you about C*ckblocked, a new website that lets users see who’s blocked them on Grindr. The site was developed by Trever Faden, a tech professional from Washington, D.C.

“I discovered that Grindr actually gives each user the profile IDs of all the users who blocked you on the app,” Trever told Queerty. “They don’t display it anywhere on the actual app itself, but the data is there.”

“So, I decided to build C*ckblocked. Basically you can login with your Grindr creds and it’ll show you all the users who blocked you on the app.”

Matthew Rodriguez over at INTO asked Grindr users to share their experiences using the new tool. While many found it to be a silly distraction, Rodriguez noticed a sad pattern reported by many men of color.

Most of the men who had blocked them fell into the same category: white dudes who had they had never spoken to.

One user said he was blocked by over 700 guys, the majority of whom were white strangers.

“This site serves as a reminder that, while there is blatant racism on dating apps, there’s also a lot of covert ways—microaggressions, if you will—that people can show their discrimination,” Rodriguez writes.
