If you’ve ever perused OKCupid and been sickened by the masses of bourgeois scum, you’ll be delighted to hear the latest innovation in anti-capitalist dating: OKComrade.
After the eviction of Occupy encampments across the country in late 2011 robbed many of a good place to schtoop in grimy tents, the radical scene has been in dire need of a place for radicals to engage in amorous relations.
OKComrade, currently only a Facebook page, encourages users to post pictures and a brief description of themselves.
According to the Huffington Post,
There are a few rules: “No Sexism, no racism, no heterosexism, or transphobia.” But according to their Facebook page, you’re basically welcome to join so long as you aren’t “a dick.”
Of course, like most radical politics (and the rest of the world, I suppose), the page is woefully dominated by dudes.
One grown adult decided to stand out in the crowd by posting this:
Fortunately, the site doesn’t get caught up in inter-leftist conflict: all brands of communists and anarchists are welcome. Though let’s be honest, they’d probably be better off by banning anarcho-capitalists.
One user wrote:
The page, created only 11 days ago, now boasts over 4,000 likes. 3,190 of those are from this week alone.
While the project is currently only on Facebook, the creator noted that they were currently working on a site and an app.
I suppose if you didn’t go to a university frequented by disillusioned anti-capitalist hipsters, OKComrade will prove to be an invaluable resource for meeting people.
