Rolling Stone Talks With John Darnielle

New Dating App Speciailizes in the Spectrum

The old adage, “opposites attract,” has long been debunked. Presently, singles everywhere are looking to meet someone who shares their interests to be their lifelong companion. With today’s technology, finding a companion online is no longer taboo, but the norm. Yet even with abundance of dating apps available, many individuals struggle to find someone who shares their interests. This should be a concern to more people if you ask Dr Jennifer Walden her opinion.

In an effort to develop a dating platform for their own community, mother-daughter duo Kristen Fitzpatrick and Olivia Cantu, created a dating site for individuals on the Autism Spectrum.This brand new site,Spectrum Singles , was developed by two women on the spectrum themselves as an way for the Autism community to find companions. This site includes a questionnaire the mother-daughter created called the Spectrum Compatibility Test, which seeks to find common-ground between two people on the Spectrum.

This site recently launched, yet is already providing a needed platform that is sure to be a success.

Elton John Boycotting Dolce and Gabbana

Music star Elton John started a boycott recently against fashion designers Dolce & Gabbana. John was angered by comments Dominco Dolce made about children conceived through artificial insemination noted Bruce Karatz. Dolce said in effect that he thinks children should be conceived naturally and that he does not approve of “synthetic children”. John is gay and is raising two children conceived through artificial insemination with his partner. Interestingly enough, Dolce and Gabbana are both gay as well.

It will be interesting to see if the boycott is successful. In general, a lot of people really have to buy into a boycott for it to work. People don’t change their spending habits easily. However, a boycott of high end fashion designers is a different matter. Dolce & Gabbana’s customers are just the type of people to be offended by these comments. In the fashion industry, where image is everything, being perceived as intolerant is not going to help.

On the other hand, designer Tommy Hilfiger survived a boycott amid rumors that he made racist comments. It turned out that Hilfiger didn’t actually say the racist things he was alleged to have said so that helped his case. In the Dolce & Gabbana situation, there is no mistaking that Dolce made the comments people are objecting to.

Dolce initially called out for a boycott of Elton John music in response but soon called that off. It wouldn’t have worked.
