Whether its about sports, competitions, scandals, degrees, awards, scholarships, etc, it seems that trans-women are the ones who are front and center in all of the news. I can name the trans-women that were featured in those news - because of how often they appeared - but I can't name a single trans-man.
The only time which I have seen a trans-man appear on the news, it was because he gave birth; that was it.
Heck, sometimes I forget that trans-men even exist.
Why is it that trans-women seem to be the ones featured in the news? Do they just stand out more? Or am just missing the news mentioning trans-men?
EDIT: I just remembered that there was a trans-man (he was a boy) who was in a wrestling team in highschool, and there was a controversy on whether he could compete or not since he was taking steroids. Other than this and the birthing man, I don't recall any other news stories.
Unanswered Are there really bars in America that everyone will stare at you for ages when you walk in if you've not been before just like in the movies?
I recently brought up going on a diet to my husband and he surprised me by saying he likes the weight I’ve gained since we got married. He told me men prefer women with meat on their bones and he doesn’t want me to be wedding day skinny again. Is this normal or is he just telling me this to be nice?
I’m 5 ft 4 and around 170 lbs give or take depending on the day. I’ve put on roughly 35-40 lbs since the wedding and I’m 23 years old. Let me know what y’all think

Unanswered Americans, why is tipping proportional to the bill? Is there extra work in making a $60 steak over a $20 steak at the same restaurant?
This is based on a single person eating at the same restaurant, not comparing Dennys to a Michelin Star establishment.
Edit: the only logical answer provided by staff is that in many places the servers have to tip out other staff based on a percentage of their sales, not their tips. So they could be getting screwed if you don't tip proportionality.
When I googled about insulin, the creators wanted it to be free. It's 20$ for a vial in canada and 600-800$ for same vial in america. Why isn't the government stepping in to help people lower prices or make it free to literally save peoples lives?
Unanswered I (M45) want to score some cool, step-dad points with my (F17) stepdaughter. What do I get her for Christmas?
I'm mid-20s, I've got a college degree and a good IT job that lets me work from home. I'm single, I consider myself pretty well-adjusted, I don't have kids or even pets... By all measures I should have lots of time on my hands, I mean other adults have kids and relationships etc. to deal with on top of everything. But I feel like I just have no time for anything??
I wake up at 8AM. The next hour and a half or so I spend making coffee, showering, getting dressed, making breakfast, becoming a functioning human.
I log on to work at 9:30. I'm usually off at around 5:30 or 6. Next hour I spend cooking, yeah I'm a slow cooker. So now it's usually around 7, but I don't like to eat before I clean up my mess so I spend another few minutes cleaning up dishes so I don't have to worry about that later. And then I eat alone, and it's usually around 8. I've been awake and done nothing for myself for 12 hours so I'm pretty exhausted by this point. Do people really go out now? I usually have chores to do at this point, laundry or cleaning up after myself or organizing, and if I don't I might have extra work because that just piles up. And by the time I'm done that I only have an hour or two before I have to go to bed, there's no room for fun.
And on the weekends, I'm usually on call for the majority of the day so I can't get too involved in anything. So I'm never more than an hour away from getting back to work if something's on fire. But even if there's no incident at work, I still need to clean up my apartment, I still need to cook, I still need to maintain relationships with the people still left in my life... Like, I feel like my life is so absorbed in the things I have to do, I barely have a total of a day every week to spend on me.

Unanswered Do any of you ever google a question and add “reddit” after the question because surprisingly reddit will get you straight to the answer rather than having to go through an annoying spammy website?
I mean alcohol or nicotine can we in/out of the equation, and maybe it’s just my state, but it seems like 90+% of people use some sort of substance, wether it’s weed or something else. Like it near impossible to find anyone who’s completely sober, or has an occasional drink. I just don’t understand, and as someone who doesn’t do anything, it’s incredibly hard to relate with anyone. Don’t get me wrong, I used to use a lot of different things, but now I’ve been sober for many many years and still people in my age are still going hard at it.

Unanswered Why do companies pay for 30 second ads on YouTube if everyone will skip them after 5 seconds?
Obviously it costs more to have a 30 second ad compared to a 5 second one but why would any company want to pay for that if anyone can just skip it after 5 seconds?
At least a short, unskippable ad would mean the company can get the message across quickly before the ad is over but usually if you're skipping a longer ad, your video is playing before you even know what the ad was about. If I was the marketing branch of a company, I wouldn't be happy if I paid a lot for a long ad and no one saw it.
The fact that it can be skipped at all takes away from even the 5 seconds I see because my eyes are drawn to the countdown in the corner instead of the company, meaning your 30 second ad is practically doing nothing for you unless it can't be skipped over.
Am I missing something here?
According to Wikipedia, 36 out of the 50 biggest cities in the US are ruled by Democrats, 3 are governed by Independets who have very Liberal views and 11 are governed by Republicans, with many of them having socially left-leaning positions than don't allign with the national Republican party. source.
The same thing seems to be the case in big European countries, like Germany, France or the UK, where almost all major cities are ruled by left-leaning parties.
I always knew there was a big divide between rural and urban regions. But why is that exactly?
