For Chinese netizens who feel judged by their WeChat posts, or stigmatized for their bawdy sense of humor, there’s now an app called ‘Right Brainer’ (右脑人), a safe space for China’s self-identifed weirdos.

“This is a social product that brings lunatics and psychos together,” states Right Brainer’s website. “We help the unruly meet troublemakers, and let misfits find unconventional friends.”

Much of the “weirdness” of Right Brainer boils down to semi-risqué content – phallic memes, nipples, condom jokes – though there is some legitimately bizarre content on there, like a picture of hairy man wearing nothing but a pink, flowered apron. The app also features original creations by Right Brainer users, such as uploaded artwork and short comics.
