A Murderous Gay iPhone App, or: How to Stoke Homophobes and Luddites With a Single Crime Story
A Murderous Gay iPhone App, or: How to Stoke Homophobes and Luddites With a Single Crime StoryAn older man was beaten and stabbed to death by a younger man; they had arranged a date. The younger man was tracked down by police using the same iPhone social networking app that likely brought the two together.
Ergo, the headline is not, "Older Man Allegedly Stabbed to Death by Teenager" or "'Date' Ends in Tragedy," but "iPhone's Gay Social Networking App Leads to Murder of Phoenix Man, Police Claim."
In fact, it's remarkable how much agency this Gay Social Networking iPhone has: "On Tuesday, police tracked down a suspect whose iPhone arranged the date with Woodland and matched the description of the man given to police." Not that the younger man was actually looking for a vulnerable victim, an apartment to ransack.
