I understand the Thai netcitizens very good. It is way better to get wound up over a bad word then actually solve problems like corruption, lack of democracy,  being Nr 2 in roadkill statistics etc etc. So let's please continue to smile and Wai and not solve anything.

(You made a good point, but it's much more general than "Thai netizens")

There are a lot of terms to describe the phenomenon you described, but I like "Law of triviality" best. It essentially boils down to the observation that the more trivial an issue is, the more people voice their opinions. 

Nowadays, upheavals about trivialities (via FB, TT, …) are an important trigger to "the powers that are" of ad-hoc enforcements (and they even influence future policies), all to the expense of things that matter much more (but are also much less trivial).

It's democracy at its best and worst, which shows or at least hints at the fact that democracy itself is fundamentally flawed (unless we're willing to accept silly causes to have major effects). I can't think of anything that could be better though (taking humans out of the top of the decision tree isn't practical yet, but that may be the way to go eventually).

Which part of your relationship with a Transwoman hurts?
