I’ve spent the past couple of days asking several hundred Grindr users in Edinburgh whether they believe Scotland should be an independent country. Replies were of variable quality. Here is a representative sample:
The number of people I’ve questioned who are still present in my Grindr message history – that is, excluding the many people who blocked me – appears to add up to 655. I’ve divided their reactions into…
Other opinion: 20
Too horny to answer: 6
General rejection: 4
Did not respond: 318
So there you have it. When only decisive opinions are taken into account, Grindr votes NO to independence, with a 54-46% split. If this is reflected in the results of tomorrow’s referendum, we can assume the headless torsos have taken over Scotland and there’s nothing you can do to stop it.
(The eagerly anticipated machotrouts.tumblr.com endorsement goes to a YES vote. I am a headful torso.)
