For years, lovebirds in the political left have suffered under the bourgeois dating scene, having to sift through pages of republicans and capitalists and college freshman just to cop a feel. Now, a new online dating service wants to spark a revolution, by offering a place for communists, socialists, and all other like-minded revolutionaries to find *TRUE LOVE.*
Since it opened on May 4th, the OKComrade Facebook has already attracted nearly 6,000 unique likes. Its profile picture depicts a hammer and heart-shaped sickle above the tagline “More than comrades.” (D’awww.) Users, fittingly, decide for themselves what to post, creating a kind of amorphous anti-system that makes it a little difficult to sort the bros with Che Guevara shirts from the true red commies.
“No Sexism, no racism, no heterosexism, or transphobia,” read the rules — a noble effort, so long as you’re willing to sort out all the self-righteous, or, possibly sarcastic, bullshit:
My name is Evgeny Alekseyevich Magpiyski,” writes user Egveny Soroka, “I come from the Motherland. I abide in the land of capitalist piglets. I am good hard worker. Every night I cut beets and turnips and make soup for my fellow comrade.
I am also Engineer, Trust me.
Swipe left, comrades. Swipe far, far left.
