RT @dominicholden: South Korea’s anti-gay covid crackdown: “My credit card company told me that they passed on my payment information in the district to the authorities...If I get tested, my company will most likely find out I’m gay... I am feeling suicidal now.”
Our focus on this sub is examining the empirical basis for lockdowns. Although there is a lot of coverage of lockdowns, and of people or organizations who oppose lockdowns, much of this coverage is not on-topic in this sub.
It looks like this post doesn't contain a great deal of examination of the basis of the lockdowns.
Understand: if we allowed (for example) every piece of news related to lockdown policy, it would choke out the solid science that we're trying to keep at the top of the sub.
We would instead like to direct you to post to our megathread.

Perhaps they should have followed the rules instead of going clubbing?
"Of 35 new cases, 29 were found to be linked to Itaewon, the capital’s gay district, according to officials from the Korean Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (KCDC), bringing the total number of cases related to the clubs to 86."
What? How is taking the Coronavirus test going to label you as either gay or straight? And I don't think saying "I don't want to be tested because I don't want people to know I'm gay" is going to do them much good, either.
According to the article, the recent covid outbreak in S.Korea has been traced back to the gay district and gay saunas. So if men go to get tested for covid, they'll be suspected of being gay. And I guess contact tracing could also expose them. The only weird thing about the article is they use the full names and ages of these guys who say they're scared to be 'outed'.
If EVERYONE who gets tested is suspected of being gay on that basis alone, then that's entirely the problem of Korean society as a whole. And those gay Koreans who feel the need of being tested should team up with gay acquaintances of the opposite sex when they go and present themselves as a couple. Everyone needs a beard occasionally.
