Maybe we're just thinking about it too much though.
You may not have realised, however, that BRO is also the name of a new social app just for men. One part of that may include straight men dating one another, but that was kooking the sole purpose.
I mean, in the app, you choose what 'type' of bro you are — from noa to 'fabulous'. Like I'm doing it all in secret.
For me, this is supposed to be a safe space for men to meet up and make meaningful relationships. Some of our users may be the same people on Grindr, but people behave differently in different spaces.
I disagree. Only one way to find out, I suppose. That's not because I'm a homophobe who doesn't hsad to be tarnished with homosexuality.
Let's get You see faces. Then, there were a few articles, like one in Queerty, which made the app into a place for straight men looking for other straight men to get oral sex in secret.
Originally published 29 January Maybe it's all pretty straightforward. Lookibg have taken it as an app for confused people. It also appears a lot like a hook-up app.
It's because I'm in a happy relationship and I wouldn't want the missus or her mates catching me on there Like BRO's mission statement puts it, a place, "for men that are interested in meeting other men… as simple as that". I went for 'casual bro', because that one seemed hwad require the least thought. On further investigation, I think it might be a bit more nuanced than that.
We built up 32, Facebook fans before launch. I think that's all it is, anyway.
People have called it an app for straight men because of the de, the logo, the name, the fact that interactions include 'fist-bumps'. First of all, the 'about me' section is pretty straightforward, except there is one interesting section in there This app has caused lo of media speculation because, in some ways, it all seems so confusing.
After all, isn't that, in itself, just conforming to another socially-constructed idea of gender and sexuality? So is it a place for straight, manly men to date other straight, manly men?
BRO Why did you develop the app? Most of the people I chatted to on there said that they identified as gay.
If this app is the thing that someone needs to open up about themselves, then great. But maybe that kind of behaviour doesn't have to be restricted to the 'straight' male community. How do you cater for all types of people when some may fall through the cracks between different 'types'?
