@ocdtrekkie I didn't want my joke to get sidetracked into a messenger app war.
If you personally prefer to communicate through PutinChat or whatever, mazel tov, go with god
being queer around the world, suicide, it's bad
So let's see. A small incomplete collection of things that happened around the world. That's just for this month.
Someone shot people in front of a queer bar the night before Pride in Oslo.
Hundreds of people who came for banned Pride were arrested in Istanbul, among other places in Turkey.
Japanese court thinks same sex marriage is rightfully illegal.
Calling for the execution of trans people / their allies is a totally normal thing to say for politicians in the US.
Saudi-Arabia bans rainbow colored toys now.
There were again (after the deadly 2015 attack) death threats against Jerusalem Pride.
Queer people in many places still fear to be executed.
Gay scenes are censored in movies shown in China among many other places.
Almost half of queer teenagers in Poland attempt suicide.
No, we are nowhere near queer utopia. I really can't stand most western European pride events and their party attitude "let's celebrate because we made it". Fuck you. We need riots not parties. Here where it is safest to do it.

I'm trying to say this tactfully, but...
For 20+ years, we've been tilting at the windmills of privacy, corporate/govt spying, tracking, yada. And we've been ridiculed and marginalized for it.
The world has welcomed the AmaGoogBook beasts into their homes, made it easy for Them, and damn near impossible for us to fight it.
Now, 80M American women are suddenly trying to learn how to hide their reasonable online activities from their own govt, because what was legal yesterday, is illegal today.
