According to accounts given by numerous witnesses, police are using gay online dating sites, such as Grindr, to hunt down LGBT people.Egyptian gay rights activists have published numerous messages warning members of the community to refrain from using these applications.The footage was shared across social media and was picked up by the local press, who condemned this ceremony.At the beginning of the week, the public prosecutor’s office ordered the two men featured in the ceremony to undergo “medical tests” that were supposed to be able to determine if they were homosexual. From classic websites like or Ok Cupid to new mobile apps like Tinder, there are more ways now than ever to find love online. According to Michael Ryan, assistant professor of sociology, one reason could be society’s increasing reliance on technology.“This is part of a larger social evolution, or I would say devolution, toward our lives being completely embedded in technology, and I think our need to plug into technology constantly has leaked over into the dating world,” said Ryan.And while in Egypt Tinder profiles advertising shirtless men with cars, police and military officers, and older men with rings on their fingers are standard, cases of swipes to the right turning to marriage remain rare.

Same-sex relationships, prostitution, abortion –– All of these things entered the public discourse.” Another explanation for the increasing number and types of dating platforms could be niche marketing, Ryan pointed out.Despite the heat, the dust, and the tourist hustle, you can't miss a trip here.The Pyramid of Cheops (also called the Great Pyramid or Pyramid of Khufu) is the largest pyramid of the Giza group, and its interior of narrow passages can be explored, although there isn't much to see, except a plain tomb chamber with an empty sarcophagus.“Whereas Ok Cupid or and these other websites seem more about traditional dating, the apps seem more about hooking up,” Ryan noted.Pointing to Michel Foucault’s repressive hypothesis, Ryan believes that social context helps explain the popularity of apps like Tinder.
