The Top 5 Reasons Tinder Is Popular On College Campuses

Swipe left, swipe left, OOH, HOTTIE, SWIPE RIGHT, swipe left...

Tinder, the app that promises "friendships, dates, relationships, and everything in between." But, is that the real reason college students download this app? Well, maybe.

Here are the top FIVE reasons why Tinder is so popular on college campuses.

1. Tinder is pure entertainment.

For when you're sitting bored in a lecture, laying in bed before you fall asleep, or avoiding your homework after class, it's so easy to pull out your phone and have the ability to go through hundreds of people, deciding to swipe left or swipe right.

2. You get the ability to scope out the hotties in your area.

Especially the ones that go to school with you, right from your phone! You get the chance to see who is out there that you could go meet up with at a party, or just meet up for some subs at Jimmy John's.

3. Tinder is probably the fastest way to find someone you're attracted to to hook up with.

Whether people admit it or not, a lot of the people on Tinder are looking for someone to just meet and hook up with, nothing more. Especially being college kids, most are not looking for a deep relationship, just some fun. Tinder is an easy way to do this.

4. Tinder is a good way to meet people for parties.

Yep, you read that right. People use it to find parties to attend on the weekends. You can match with people at your school, and send them a quick message asking if they know of any parties going on that weekend. Now, this isn't the most common use of Tinder, but it is on the charts!

5. Lastly, Tinder is common for college kids because it's an easy way to meet people.

You swipe right, you get a match, and you start talking to someone you think is attractive and vice-versa! You talk, and eventually, you get to that point where you want to meet in person! Now, this could turn into something more than just a friendship, or it could stay a friendship, and there is nothing wrong with that! Just having friends outside of your circle of friends is important, and Tinder can help you do that!

If any of these options sound appealing to you, Tinder is not a weird app to have! So many people have it for at least one of the reasons above, so don't be hesitant to get it. And remember, swipe left means no, swipe right means yes. Good luck!

I'm A Woman And You Can't Convince Me Breastfeeding In Public Is OK In 2019

Sorry, not sorry.


Lately, I have seen so many people going off on social media about how people shouldn't be upset with mothers breastfeeding in public. You know what? I disagree.

There's a huge difference between being modest while breastfeeding and just being straight up careless, trashy and disrespectful to those around you. Why don't you try popping out a boob without a baby attached to it and see how long it takes for you to get arrested for public indecency? Strange how that works, right?

So many people talking about it bring up the point of how we shouldn't "sexualize" breastfeeding and seeing a woman's breasts while doing so. Actually, all of these people are missing the point. It's not sexual, it's just purely immodest and disrespectful.

If you see a girl in a shirt cut too low, you call her a slut. If you see a celebrity post a nude photo, you call them immodest and a terrible role model. What makes you think that pulling out a breast in the middle of public is different, regardless of what you're doing with it?

If I'm eating in a restaurant, I would be disgusted if the person at the table next to me had their bare feet out while they were eating. It's just not appropriate. Neither is pulling out your breast for the entire general public to see.

Nobody asked you to put a blanket over your kid's head to feed them. Nobody asked you to go feed them in a dirty bathroom. But you don't need to basically be topless to feed your kid. Growing up, I watched my mom feed my younger siblings in public. She never shied away from it, but the way she did it was always tasteful and never drew attention. She would cover herself up while doing it. She would make sure that nothing inappropriate could be seen. She was lowkey about it.

Mindblowing, right? Wait, you can actually breastfeed in public and not have to show everyone what you're doing? What a revolutionary idea!

There is nothing wrong with feeding your baby. It's something you need to do, it's a part of life. But there is definitely something wrong with thinking it's fine to expose yourself to the entire world while doing it. Nobody wants to see it. Nobody cares if you're feeding your kid. Nobody cares if you're trying to make some sort of weird "feminist" statement by showing them your boobs.

Cover up. Be modest. Be mindful. Be respectful. Don't want to see my boobs? Good, I don't want to see yours either. Hard to believe, I know.
