I am seeing a Take lately that is basically “the problem is people putting too much emotional investment into their online life.”
I just want to point out that, for some people, online communities are the place where they can actually find other people who are like them.
For example, If you are queer and live outside of a major city, it can be rather difficult to find a community of other queer people, in person.
There is nothing wrong or unhealthy about finding that community digitally.
