how they can use Facebook under Tor or Whonix. What are they thinking?)

There are good reasons for it. See
https://www.wired.com/2014/10/facebook-tor-dark-site/ for example. To the
thread's topic, using Debian's onion repositories helps avoid MITM attacks.
Of course, can't protect against compromise of the repositories themselves,
but that's not a problem that can be solved at the communications layer.

You missed my point because I wasn't clear enough.
I know that Facebook is accessible over Tor.
But why would anyone concerned with privacy ,(presumably why they are
using Tor or Whonix), want to sup with the devil of Facebook? I don't
think any spoon is long enough, not even one passing through 3 hops.

Understood. I'm picturing a pseudonymous female blogger who wants to organize in a country where they aren't allowed to use the internet. Not sure how compatible that noble goal is with Facebook's real name policy. A more trite example would be a normal Facebook user who doesn't necessarily want them and all their 3rd party advertisers to know from what location/IP address he's logging in. However, I've never had the desire to create a Facebook account either!
