Scottish Grindr users on the EU referendum

I’ve previously taken to Grindr to ask users their opinions on the Scottish independence referendum and the 2015 general election.

More recently, I’ve been asking Grindr users in and around Edinburgh whether they believe the United Kingdom should withdraw from the European Union. Here is a representative sample of the replies:

NeedDaddy'sCock: No

No, I believe being part of the European Union has more benefits for Scotland than it has drawbacks.

Nookie Monkey: Mm..has to be Independance, pro brexit.
Me: Good evening, Blow me kneel. Do you believe the United Kingdom should withdraw from the European Union?
Blow me kneel: No
Me: Thank you for your input, Blow me kneel.
Blow me kneel: Big dick?
Me: Good morning, SuckYouNow. Do you believe the United Kingdom should withdraw from the European Union?
SuckYouNow: I believe I'm not on Grindr to discuss such issues.
Me: Good evening, Hairy dude. Do you believe the United Kingdom should withdraw from the European Union?
Hairy dude: Hey dude! No! Please don't vote for leaving. We both loose! I'm not happy either of eu politics as an Italian but it's not by leaving to politicians deciding for us the solution.
Hairy dude: I'm enjoying Edinburgh!!
Me: Good evening, Cocksuckernow. Do you believe the United Kingdom should withdraw from the European Union?
Cocksuckernow: I think should leave
Cocksuckernow: Even if is going to affect me in some point
Cocksuckernow: I do not agree of all the benefits ppl from other countries are taking
Me: Good evening, Looking for XL. Do you believe the United Kingdom should withdraw from the European Union?
Looking for XL: I think it would be economically catastrophic if withdrawal took place. The scottish question would also shoot to the top of the nationalist agenda and that would certainly have wider, negative pan-European implications.
Me: Good afternoon, Can Accom. Do you believe the United Kingdom should withdraw from the European Union?
Can Accom: I really Torn tbh
Me: It is a dilemma, Can Accom. Do you currently feel more inclined to leave or to remain?

Me: Good evening, Stephen. Do you believe the United Kingdom should withdraw from the European Union?
Stephen: After Greece I can't say I'm filled with optimism for the EU's radical or even progressive potential. There's a strong leftist case for leaving but the left isn't strong enough for it, and the only people a withdrawal would benefit right now are the far-right. So no, not at the moment.
Me: Good morning, Hung 4 roleplay. Do you believe the United Kingdom should withdraw from the European Union?
Hung 4 roleplay: Im always relunctant to withdraw from anything
Me: Thank you for your input, Hung 4 roleplay.
Hung 4 roleplay: Yes I prefer putting in
Me: Good evening, Brutal fuck me. Do you believe the United Kingdom should withdraw from the European Union?
Brutal fuck me: Absolutely not. The UK is not as economically independent as many would like to believe. Withdrawing from the European Union is going to cause a hike in tariffs, which will lead to increased import and export prices, and lose of competitiveness.
Me: Good afternoon, Swallow me. Do you believe the United Kingdom should withdraw from the European Union?
Swallow me: I believe Noone should withdraw till they've cum and been swallowed
Me: Good afternoon, Human male. Do you believe the United Kingdom should withdraw from the European Union?
Human male: As a left winger with green principles and a believer in localised government, I see flaws in the EU as it currently exists. However, the fragile nature of modern capitalism and a worry that Brexit would lead to conservative domination of the U.K. means I am convinced that we should be a part of a network rather than shunning them.
Me: Good afternoon, ARTIST. Do you believe the United Kingdom should withdraw from the European Union?
ARTIST: LoL, being myself a pure product of if, (mix of Portuguese, French and Scottish culture), I think it would be stupid...
Me: Thank you for your input, ARTIST.
ARTIST: Here are the most serious reasons.
The risks are :

1/ human rights down the drain
2/ No one to do the jobs Brits don't want to do.
3/ Retired and unemployed UK citizens won't have rights to benefit from EU countries social security countries
4/ UK government could not stop EU emigration or extra EU emigration
5/ economic loss in export due to taxes
6/ UK won't have any say on EU policies anymore...

Horny: Fuck off weirdo

STATISTICS:

I was only able to question 327 users before Grindr moderators intervened. 151 users left some kind of response. Of these, 108 settled on a yes or no answer.


81.48% (88) would like to REMAIN in the European Union.

18.52% (20) would like to EXIT the European Union.

Other responses can be divided as follows:

10   Undecided
8     Don’t care
8     Miscellaneous evasion
6     None of my business
3     Too bewildered to answer
3     Too horny to engage politically
3     Turned out to be a spambot
2     Incomprehensible

(This leaves 38 users who presumably blocked me by the time the results were counted. Any responses they may have given are not counted here.)

In conclusion, Scottish Grindr users are overwhelmingly against leaving the European Union. With it looking increasingly doubtful that such a comfortable victory for remainers will be reflected in the broader United Kingdom’s vote in the upcoming referendum, Grindr may have to consider declaring itself an independent nation to remain in the EU.
