I’ve just been the victim of a premeditated homophobic attack here in Dublin. Went to meet someone off Grindr. Was met with a group of teenage boys with weapons. They tried to kill me with these weapons. They were trying to hit me on the head with hammers.
They didn’t manage but I’m in the emergency room in hospital with facial injuries and my car was destroyed. I’m ok but fu**ing angry. I need to find out why Grindr allows violent scum to open accounts.

“A man has been beheaded and at least one other person injured in a suspected Islamist attack on a factory near the French city of Lyon. Several small explosive devices were also set off at the Air Products factory in Saint-Quentin-Fallavier, sources said.”
“The alleged attacker is said to have been carrying an Islamist flag, which was found nearby. A man has been arrested, officials say.”
