@emma or possibly different communities? I know that folks were finding out similar problems when hookup apps were leaking info, which was relatively (relatively!) harmless in say a US context, but were deadly in countries with harsh anti-gay laws.

Yes, federation would help, but there's no amount of tech that will fix a systemic problem like homophobia and it's underlying causes.
