thread on why people put content warnings on mastodon, for new users <3 Show more
(reposting from my old account)
okay so, in my early days on mastodon, I didn't understand why people were expected to put content warnings on politics
to me, it seemed like another example of a community trying to stay together while excusing people for views that completely exclude the members the community's most marginalized members, and an attempt to silence those members.
as I stayed on mastodon however, I realized that this, just wasnt the case
