A Twitter campaign that hopes to bring attention to racist Scruff and Grindr profiles has been making waves on the Internet. The satirical account takes jabs at members of the gay community who are social justice warriors who nevertheless manage to discriminate against minorities.

Of course, not everyone is tittering to themselves regarding the hashtag:
I love how #TweetLikeAWhiteGay ignores people with disabilities in the gay community! Apparently the rest of the LGBT can’t be racist either

Never forget… The media is corrupt and lies so often it’s hard to believe they understand what “truth” means anymore.#TweetLikeAWhiteGay.

What are your feelings about the #TweetLikeAWhiteGay movement? Incisive satire? Offensive claptrap? Or… yawn?
