How gay–friendly is Facebook?

Facebook is an integral part of millions of lives. It enables us to easily keep up with friends and acquaintances, organise events and even pretend that we’ve remembered important birthdays.

However, with privacy concerns on the rise and Google+ snapping at the giant’s heels, it’s a good time to reflect upon Facebook’s record as a gay-friendly space.

Residual Guilt

I've got this theory that guilt is a key driving force for many PhDs.NO

This is hardly an original theory. If I was to conduct a thorough literature review I'd no doubt be citing innumerable personal accounts (and of course a large number of strips from PhD Comics) that bemoan the impact of guilt: guilt about not having written enough, guilt about not having read enough, and guilt about being woefully unprepared for the next supervision. However, I'd like to offer a positive spin on the phenomenon of residual guilt.

Lü Liping’s Twitter feed attracted over 10,000 comments after she passed on a tweet originally written by Pastor Feng Wei of the Victory Baptist Chinese Mission of Rochester, New York.
