'It’s fine' to treat a man as an object for once, especially when we have their consent and adjusted sense of humour for the situation.
And meeting a girl this way is better because she would know me less well, as we wouldn’t have spent hours talking online.’The boys who surf ‘Adopt’ share a very pragmatic vision of the site.
David feels men are always ‘treated like objects’, whilst Jules finds that the portal is very much a reflection of our era, where there must be far worse out there. ‘It does a good job of placing us in our sexual and sentimental relations today, where meeting people has become a very industrialised notion.’ It’s a black vision of this generation Y everyone is always harping on about; all you need to be today is ‘hype’ for a young girl to lust after you in all legitimacy.
