    I am not an expert at all. But this feels like the worst idea. There's no way to make sure the vulnerable people won't get infected. Even if just 0.2% of the young people die that's quite a lot if they let basically everyone get infected. Not only will things most likely go very bad in the UK, it might even screw the rest of the world if the UK becomes a gigantic hotbed of infection.

    Czech here too, I was a bit angry at the beginning, but I think banning the big events was a good move. The nation-wide quarantine is now confirmed, btw. I think our PM is trying to look really good, and I think in the beginning it actually even were sensible things to do. But the nation-wide quarantine is really really stupid, it really is a publicity stunt. First of all, it basically doesn't change anything, basically everything was banned already. Secondly Babiš (our PM) is trying to push a sneaky law (https://www.seznamzpravy.cz/clanek/babis-schytava-kritiku-ze-si-ve-stavu-nouze-pomaha-se-stretem-zajmu-93136) while everyone is distracted by this, which is disgusting. Thirdly, Babiš should be making sure that enough respirators and masks are ready for when more cases come, instead of doing this stuff.

    Is your Maturita going to be postponed because of this? I guess, we'll see how the world looks in a month or in how long Maturitas happen.

    Thank you.

    I identify as demisexual or gray-asexual or something like that on the asexuality spectrum, don't really have it figured out fully for myself. Basically, I don't want to have sex at all, I don't feel any need to have it, I just think there's a chance I could still enjoy sex if I had a perfect relationship. I definitely feel there are a lot of annoying problems aces can face. I have read so many stories of people that went to a therapist, who when they heard about their patient being asexual immediately wanted to start treating them for hormonal imbalance or some similar shit. There are also many stories of asexuals who were raped, by people who were trying to "fix" them by doing this. Luckily, most of the time the problems aren't as bad as some other LGBT people can have, but that doesn't mean they don't exist.

    I am pretty sure most people would consider aces to be part of the LGBT community, considering some people even use the LGBTQIA initialism and nobody is stopping aces from going for example to pride parades.

    I am not sure if the second angle works too well, for example would agender people not be a part of LGBT because they lack gender? I am also not sure that asexuals don't have a sexuality, I am pretty sure the sexuality asexuals have is that they are (almost) not sexually attracted to any gender. You might say it's almost like the opposite of bi/pansexuality.

    I think in the grand scheme of things it doesn't really matter if asexuals are part of the LGBT community. As you said, most of the time asexual people don't face too many problems or discrimination similar to homophobia and transphobia. You are right, nobody is stopping people from not having sex :D. They can just get a lot of ignorance if they choose to talk about asexuality with other people. It isn't too hard to live life as asexual without talking about it too much, kind of being in the closet. But I also don't really see why they wouldn't be, especially by most definitions people use.

    I still think this argument is flawed too. Would people that don't experience homophobia or transphobia be a part of the LGBT community? For example a bisexual person, in a heterosexual relationship?

    I am sorry if I misinterpreted your comment in a different thread a bit that I read here (it also might not have been your comment, and if so I am sorry), but I think you talked about aces not really belonging in the LGBT community. I was wondering why if I think they fit pretty well into the umbrella term for various sexualities and gender-diverse groups.

    Edit: I found the comment, and it was made by @meme and you said that you agree with what they said, maybe they can reply too? Comment link

    My gender is not fluid at all, I am cis male and I am ok with it. The only thing I don't like are the gender stereotypes of man and what's expected of man. I prefer being a bit androgynous, I hate how the perfect man according to media is a big muscular man. It's kind of annoying that some people (like my parents) don't like when a man is skinny and has long hair like me.

    My sexuality is not really fluid too. It just took me some time to figure things out. It took me quite some time to fully realize that I am definitely not straight. For some time I labeled myself as gay, and after being quite sure it doesn't really fully fit I now consider myself demisexual homoromantic or gray asexual or something like that. I don't know. I don't think my sexuality changed in any meaningful way over the years though. The only thing that changed is how much I understand myself.

    For people who liked the video I'd recommend videos about the Mandelbrot set on the Numberphile channel. I really do think that more people should be taught about stuff like this in math, because it's so incredibly interesting it. Less people would think math is boring if they saw more of fractally stuff.

    Also for people who like programming, I'd recommend trying to program for example the Mandelbrot set and messing around with it. It is very fun and interesting to explore fractals by programming :).

    A lot of the time watching Let's Players is not about the game, but more about the person playing the game. Think of it like it's a show/a podcast, not just watching a game. The same is other non-gaming youtubers. It's the same thing as tv, but for zoomers (that's a ridiculous simplification but you know :D).

    Wow, everyone here is so organized! Maybe it's because I am a uni student but my schedule is absolutely terrible. Most of the time I wake up at like 10-11 am, unless I have classes early in the morning, in which case I wake up anywhere from 6 to 8 am, depending how early the classes are. Chill for a bit in the morning, eat some breakfast. Go to classes, get home, eat some shit frozen pizza or something of that kind at like 4 pm as lunch. Proceed to waste my time playing games, playing guitar, watching youtube and stuff like that. Have some dinner, continue in the totally healthy gaming and stuff, most of the time playing some stuff with my friends. I go to bed somewhere around midnight to 2 am, where I lie trying to go to sleep, most of the time succeeding after on average like 1 hour of thinking about how I am screwing everything up in life.

    I don't think colorblind people have a problem with movies. At least I, as a moderate/strong deutan, don't think there ever was something in a movie that I missed out on because of colorblindness. Of course that's just from my view point, I don't know if others would disagree.

    Hope I don't sound like an asshole. Thanks for your post and for thinking about colorblind people and about accessibility in general.

    I don't know if it's worth adding, but maybe you could add a field for romantic orientations besides sexuality. You know, someone might be for example asexual heteroromantic and so on. As it is right now, I'll just write it in the free text box, so it isn't too much of a problem, but that might make the data a bit harder to work with.
