i would not visit such a backwards place. I as more adventurous in my younger years. I kind of felt like a 19th century explorer (sorry that sounds somewhat demeaning). But I learned a lot of about life and was a different person when I returned to Oz. Sounds like an awesome experience. Yes travel ...

Mostly a middle class educated thing. Traditional families and lower-middle class/village people stick it out be...

It's the mob mentality. They feel emboldened if they think others will stand behind their bigoted thoughts.

Yes the USA still exploits slavery, we just do it away from our own country so that nobody really has to think about it. That's kinda why as a southerner I always feel like the rest of the country who look down on us for having had slaves during the American Civil War are hypocrites, given the fact...

Do they allow trans men as well? (Assigned female at birth)? Or is there a double standard?

As a gay man myself I wouldn't travel to any of these countries even if I was paid to go. As much hate as my own country gets from the world I know that there are much worst places out there than the US for somebody like me to have been born in. One of the great contradictions in both Indonesia and...

I am pro-Israel. I studied the emergence of the state of Israel in 1948 in highschool and how young people in the emergent Israeli state drove the kibbutz movement in the 50s/60s and help create a paradise out of desert. Yes I know they were heavily financially backed by Ashkenazi money, and I don't...

And let me guess … they don’t allow gay marriage, so that gay men or women can’t have partners? Or is that an even worse crime than premarital hetero sex?

Small children sent into tunnels that cave in and children breathing in excessive amounts of pollution into their little lungs...

I mean NT geeks low-key flex to their fellow geeks. Everyone knows that.
