I find it funny that the term "submissive and breedable" has entered the straights lexicon. It is such a specific term used by specific members of the gay subculture. How did it come to be that cis-gendered seemingly heterosexuals? 

Blame the gay side of TikTok for this.

Speaking of TikTok, I was researching whether I can buy their stocks if they are a publicly-traded company. This mobile app belongs to a company called ByteDance. ByteDance is a Beijing-based company founded in 2012. 

There are no TikTok shares on the stock market because ByteDance Limited, TikTok’s owner, is privately held. ByteDance has plans for a TikTok Global initial public offering (IPO) in the United States, but they have announced no date for the IPO. Plans call for a pre-IPO funding round that will leave ByteDance with 80% of the TikTok Global stock.

You can buy stock in the two American companies that own 20% of TikTok Global, Walmart, and Oracle. Oracle will own 12.5% of TikTok Global, and Walmart will own 7.5% under present plans. Since I already own Walmart stock, I could buy Oracle stocks.
