It appears that there are some women out there who are using dating apps to identify and report Capitol Hill insurrectionists.
The short version is that they change their political affiliation on the dating app, this story mentions Bumble, and when the guys start to brag to them, the screen shot the shit out of them, and then call the FBI:
Women in Washington D.C. are taking matters into their own hands to obtain information on Capitol rioters.
After noticing an uptick in MAGA supporters on dating apps, women started wondering if the profiles could be useful to police.
“There are DOZENS of men on DC dating apps right now who were clearly here for the insurrection attempt,” Alia Awadallah tweeted. “Is that info useful at all for law enforcement?”
I know a friend of a friend who changed her preference on Bumble to Conservative. She’s matching with MAGA bros and they’re bragging and sending her pics and videos of them in the Capitol. She’s sending them to the FBI.

After multiple tweets about the “Bumble honeytrap” went viral, Bumble removed the politics filter in the United States to “prevent misuse.”
We have temporarily removed our politics filter in the U.S. to prevent misuse. Don’t worry; it will be reinstated in the future. 💛

Because seditious racist dirt-bags and their racist sedition must be protected at all cost, because they are central to their business.
Internet apps have the ability to allow users’ personal bigotry with no liability to the platform.
That’s how it works with Uber, Lyft, AirBnB, and no, apparently, Bumble.
