This subject was explored a bit here. Basically the conclusion was that being woke was not enough to get you laid. But there is much more going on at these mostly peaceful protests. On the west coast, LA, San Fran, Portland and Seattle we have large homeless populations. They congregate there because the winters are mild. As for who makes up the homeless population, they most are people who are mentally ill, drug users, or both. They apparently make up a substantial number of the mostly peaceful protest personnel, perhaps for a little pay, food or excitement. Maybe they get it on among themselves, but I am thinking that professional protester types and trust-funder types avoid them.
There also seem to be a number of wannabe types, often with past criminal records running around. They are probably attracted by the excitement, and potential material gain opportunities that come with mostly peaceful protests. There might be some here who turn on professional protesters or trust-funders, but I would not count on it.
Then there is the problem that the mostly peaceful protesters are male heavy. Perhaps this results in more peacocking, leading to more exciting mostly peaceful protests. This dynamic could be leading to the much of the exciting footage we have seen.
Does the love life of the mostly peaceful protesters matter much? Probably not really. But then again, if free hookers were provided, perhaps they would simmer down.
