Since the introduction of social distancing measures to control the Covid-19 pandemic, the merge between young people’s digital lives and dating lives is now more pronounced than ever, as is the exacerbation of pre-existing social inequalities posed by harmful aspects of youth digital culture. In particular, as recent events have underscored, the blight of male violence on the lives of women and girls remains an urgent issue. Entering this policy space and contemporary debates on male sexual entitlement, the present paper reports original empirical research documenting “everyday” forms of violence apparently motivated by women’s sexual rejection of men in the dating app space. It discusses two complementary studies: one a digital ethnography of the Instagrams Bye Felipe and Tinder Nightmares, which crowdsource and post harmful messages men have sent women; the other, a narrative analysis of interviews with 13 women in their early twenties to thirties about relevant in-app and face-to-face experiences. Using Gavey’s (2005) work on the “cultural scaffolding” of sexual violence as a conceptual framework, the findings reveal how cultural narratives about heterosexual dating app culture prioritise men’s sexual interests and perspectives and obscure the moral wrongness of the actions of men who become abusive when rejected by women. The paper highlights the need for creative thinking about how to improve ways of holding such men accountable in the semi-anonymous environment of the dating app. It concludes with a call for a zero-tolerance approach towards misogyny to be adopted by practitioners and policy makers working across both “online” and “offline” anti-violence efforts.
