LGBTQ+ Issues and Privacy (Please boost)
For everyone that says that #IDontHaveAnythingToHide regarding #privacy, I just want to let you know that I am a #transgender woman, living in the same household as my parents, who are not fans of the #LGBTQ+ community, and I have to hide the fact that I'm #trans because I'm not ready to tell my family who I really am until I am able to move out, where I can truly have a place to take refuge to if they don't accept me for who I am.
@jessmahler As I try to keep telling people, governments can change on a dime. A more tolerant regime could be replaced at any time by an intolerant one, whether they're democratically elected or not. Now all of a sudden you *do* have something to hide.
@RachaelAva1024 @jessmahler @faoluin I think people who _claim_ to have "nothing to hide" just haven't thought about it enough.
My go-to comeback is to offer to put the entire contents of their phone online (at my cost); nobody has taken me up on this offer. A similar reaction works for "medical records" and "financial information" ;)
"Don't allow your most desired government anything your most detested could turn against you." A running quote in line with your remark.

@jessmahler @faoluin I second what @faoluin said. This is another point I want to encourage.
