Trump Supporter Chadwick Moore Says He Was Booted Off Grindr

Chadwick Moore

Gay writer Chadwick Moore is furious after Grindr censored his profile, ostensibly because the Trump supporter insists there are only two genders. 
 


Moore — who answered the app's gender identity question by writing "there are only two" — took to Twitter to lash back at the site, accusing it of facilitating sex work and illegal drug use. He then tried to get the FBI to investigate the popular gay hook-up app. 

 


Moore's gender answer on Grindr, which erases the identities of nonbinary and genderqueer people, is not the first time he's courted controversy. Moore previously wrote a piece on Milo Yiannopoulos for Out (owned by the same company as The Advocate) that was critiqued as a sympathetic profile on the disgraced alt-right troll. He then came out as a Republican and publicly trashed trans rights. He has also downplayed homophobia and racism, and said the following to Fox News' Tucker Carlson in January: "I was having a conversation with a woman not too long ago about this — a young, upper-middle-class black woman — and she was talking about how badly she gets treated on the street here in New York, and I said to her, 'What if you lived for one day as a white woman and you were treated the exact same way and people were just as rude to you? What then?'"
