In taboo many topics are no-go. A deeply conservative Islamic society underpinned by an oppressive regime under the Sultan, which has dim regard for people’s freedom of speech, mean that subjects such as homosexuality, religion or politics are totally absent from public (and often private) conversation. Chrends is a chatroom app with threads on topics decided by users. And it doesn’t record any data on its users, meaning they can be sure their contributions remain anonymous. As the Chrends website says: “It’s what you say that’s important, not who you are."
