Bugs ain't play no games

What does it mean to be safe? What is safe for me versus another person with different ethnicity, gender, race, age, etc? I feel much safer back home in my hometown, Tehran, Iran yet the idea of traveling to Iran (or anywhere in the Middle East) for most of my American friends might feel unsafe. This work is a study and attempt to try and understand the complicated and multi-layered meaning of arbitrary, relative, and flexible concept of safety.
