Yeah, in the era where about any information is 5 minutes of googling away, millions of people every year uproot their lives and move half a world away because they got tricked by a Homestead Act leaflet.
It still happens. There was a member here, Athenian or PoisonCourtesan or whatever they went by, who decided to move to America of all places based on the misguided notions I was talking about.

Ath was young, and in the end never moved to America.
(And, America is still a much better place to live than Greece for someone like her.)

I mean, there is an added danger of a random shooting, sure, but you guys are in a way better state than us, period. Gender or sexual orientation plays little role to that, although I do admit it might be a more open (or perhaps more indifferent which sometimes is good) society.

Yeah, that's part of it. Those dudes made everybody's life difficult, if only by their sheer idiocy, though. Still, they were nerfed in the latest elections and now, you only hear comments about them for old coots, like, "Ah, remember the days of the Revolution (fascist terminology for the Dictatorship)" and the likes.
Plus, the guys are cowards. They only fight back if they are in a crowd and then, only if they are 100% certain they are gonna win. Otherwise, it's just insults and name-calling of Kindergarten level.
I can't comment of how it is for the queer people, first hand, but my brother never really had any problems, beside that aforementioned name calling.

The real problem is the pious housewives and gentlemen, as I like to call them. The type of comformist, religious (usually middle-aged) assholes. It's difficult to describe the type, becaues from what I gather, it's a mostly Mediterranean thing. If we have an Italian or Turk around, they will know what I mean.

A hospital source confirmed treatment for poisoning to the Tass news agency.
...
... Mr Navalny was in intensive care, on a ventilator and in a coma.
(The article doesn't mention what was found when investigating the aeroplane)

Mr. Bannon, through an unnamed nonprofit organization, received more than $1 million from “We Build the Wall,”
prosecutors said, some of which he used pay off hundreds of thousands of dollars in personal expenses.
Maybe he got some ideas from Trump 😆

Perhaps he could spin it as an act of rebellion against the building of a controversial barricade that he secretly didn't support, thus making him a hero rather than a villain.

TikTok and WeChat will be banned from US app stores starting on Sunday, September 20th, the US Department of Commerce (DoC) has announced. The Chinese-owned apps from Tencent and ByteDance will not only be banned from the iOS App Store and Google’s Play Store on Sunday, but companies will be barred from hosting them in the US starting on November 12th.
From what I've seen of TikTok, I can't say I'm overly sorry. A lot of people are going to be pissed off, though.

It's completely stupid of course. There is no conceivable security threat to average Americans from an app owned by a Chinese company any more than PBS is going to spy on a guy picking his nose in Hunan. It's really frustrating to see even liberals treating China the same way they treated the USSR in the 60s.

I agree, banning Chinese apps is stupid when all social media could be banned. How many lives would have been saved without Facebook?

Boomer talk, there's numerous benefits of using social media! I could list them but im far too lazy and they're pretty self explanatory, even for the simple minded.

A CCP app that collects your personal data is comparable to watching a free-to-air tv channel?

Also, numerous women who stupidly accept a friend request from a stranger, agreed to meet in person and was never seen again.
Is that social media's fault? Or the person using social media's fault? Obviously the intention of social media like Facebook is to connect with people you know, if people are using it as you suggested, it's not Facebook's fault.

Absent Facebook, it couldn't happen. i.e, it's Facebook's fault.
