A PhD student surnamed Sun is in the hot seat for occupying a woman’s seat on a high-speed train on Aug 21.
In a video posted on Sina Weibo, the man can be seen slouching in a seat. When the woman asked him to give her seat back, he refused and said: “You have three choices –stand, take my seat or go to the dining coach .”
A train attendant (乘务员) then came to try to persuade him to give the seat back. Sun claimed he wasn’t able to stand on his own and asked for a wheelchair. Left with no other options, the attendant led the female passenger to another seat, China Daily reported.
The video quickly caused debate online. Many have expressed anger at the man’s behavior. Some people even dug up the man’s name, as well as his education and work history, and released this information online.
The Jinan Public Security Bureau handed down a punishment for Sun on Aug 24. He was fined 200 yuan and will not be allowed to buy train tickets for a set period of time, the People’s Daily reported.
However, some think the punishment was not strict enough, adding that those who behave similarly on airplanes can be held criminally liable (承担刑事责任), China News Service noted.
Experts explained that the bureau could only punish Sun in this way according to present laws and regulations. But they added that such laws could be improved to stop train passengers from behaving poorly.

【3】What can we infer from the story?

Social media is a big part of most people’s lives. There are social apps and sites like WeChat and Sina Weibo, as well as video apps like Douyin and Kuaishou. How do you behave when you use these apps?
Recently researchers at the University of Sussex, UK, studied social media users ranging from 10 to 15 years old. They found there are four personality types. They are either a “geek (极客)”, an “internet celebrity (网红)”, a “lurker (潜伏者)” or a “victim (受害者)” on social media.
Victims don’t have enough knowledge to keep themselves safe online. To avoid being a victim, you should follow these tips.
First, check your privacy settings on social media. Choose “Friends only” for your posts.
Second, do not share your birthday, age, or place of birth. This information can be used to find out more about you.
Lastly, do not share the location of your home or your vacation plans. Thieves may break into your home if they know you are not there.
Geeks are active social media users who care about their privacy (隐私). They often post creative works online, using unreal names.
The movie The Social Network tells the story of Mark Zuckerberg. He is comfortable in his online life, but finds life in the real world to be much more difficult to deal with. This can remind “geeks” to try to avoid becoming addicted (上瘾的) to the Internet and take part in more face-to-face communication.
Internet celebrities might become well-known for their singing or dancing. And many of them share almost every aspect of their lives in order to attract more fans.
Being a teenage internet celebrity can sometimes cause problems in the real world, according to an article published by The Atlantic. Teenage celebrities might spend less time studying and more time online, which may be harmful to their study
Most teenagers probably fall into the type – “lurkers”. You probably have such friends who prefer to “like” and share links , rather than creating their own content online.
The problem for these teenagers is that they may find it difficult to express themselves. But at least they make sure to protect their privacy.
