dancing and demonstrating their shuffle?

The reality is that there is a very broad range of creators making TikTok videos. It's a challenge to create and produce an effective video with public appeal and impact with such a short time length and limited to a narrow portrait-mode image that is designed to be viewed only on smart phones. There is a huge amount of talent on display there, if you look a little for it.

Or you can just watch young women dance and young men make fools of themselves. Like all social media, what you view is your choice, isn't it?

We're seeing a lot of criticism from people who have never even explored what they are criticizing. That's obvious.
