Gloria Steinem made a few headlines recently during an appearance in support of Hillary Clinton for president:
Feminist icon — and Hillary Clinton supporter — Gloria Steinem says young women are supporting Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders because “the boys are with Bernie.”
Needless to say she became the target of ridicule up and down the political spectrum. But then this happens:
There is now a dating site for singles feeling the Bern — and it’s so popular it won’t stop crashing
“The 1% aren’t the only ones getting screwed this election season”
Or this: Feel the Yearn!
This was bound to happen. Millennials love Bernie Sanders. And millennials love online dating.
Enter BernieSingles.com, a website aimed at connecting the Vermont senator’s single supporters who may be looking for that special fellow democratic socialist.
The site’s administrators, however, may have underestimated how many Sanders supporters were feeling the proverbial yearn. The Hill reports that the site crashed Wednesday after attracting more than 1,000 members in an hour. And the site was continuing to suffer intermittent outages on Thursday morning.
A Facebook group associated with the singles site has nearly 10,000 members.
So Gloria Steinem was right? Shrug!
