it's becoming epidemically idiotic, on mastodon, u c people using the CW NSFW fuck.

nsfw, began 15 years ago, to prevent porn-like stuff ya friend u follow from suddenly popping up on ur screen when ur boss might be behind. Now, it seems anything sensitive, e.g. political opinion, even just plain text, r deemed to warrant, nay, require, a NSFW screen. The milen gen r truly supreme idiots of our times.

@xahlee I like it when I click on a NSFW post and it's actually NSFW. :smiley_arch:

@xahlee yeah nsfw for anything that isnt for work

@disco @xahlee I feel like this extreme NSFW tagging is a ploy to get me used to clicking through it and then bam! Surprise porn on my screen at work.

back then 15 years ago, i dnt even support the very concept of NSFW. If u no wanna see it, dnt follow such sources or ya friend, period. nothing's gonna mysteriously pop up on ya screen. if u want see, then let it be sans secretive schemes.

The very concept of nsfw is a elite yuppie thing. Life's too comfy, wanna see naughty, but no wanna pay for the price. A internal struggle. The resolve, is inventing a tag. soothing the mind, shielding the act.

@xahlee when I was over on a dimensh B instance, before I got booted, I saw someone debating whether they needed to put an NSFW on food....specifically Mac and Cheese !!!!

I was booted because I was a “class reductionist” when I asked a white euro-dude “if you see a person walking towards you of a different ethnic origin, do you see an oppressed minority ? Of do you simply see Dave (assuming that’s his name......and preferred pronoun)

@xahlee CW thing here often reminds me the Russian proverb: "Give to a schmuck crystal dildo and you gonna find him with a broken glass and wounded hands".

@xahlee Are you talking about *any* CW, or only CW labelled "NSFW"?

Because CW doesn't mean NSFW.

@xahlee In that it's content which some people might choose to see and some people might choose not to see? How is this an issue?

I'm fortunate, the only thing which really triggers me is the sight of texts I've sent to exes when I was drunk. But I appreciate CW from someone who tweets… erm… toots on fascinating topics and also boring/annoying topics, that I don't need to see more than one line of boring stuff. Wouldn't want to unfollow someone like that entirely.

@jackdeeth in nature, when tiger eats a puppy, u don't get to say whether u wanna see it.

in fact, u do, especially it's your kin. Because, that builds proper response of how you want to steer things in the future.

@xahlee In nature there is no language, no social media. We're not constrained to the limits faced by tigers and puppies.

@jackdeeth yeah. the question is then, why not wear fire proof clothing at all times. since tech can make it so.

and, invent a glass so that anything you don't want to see are automatically filtered.

@xahlee Why not make it illegal to make buildings which can catch fire easily

@jackdeeth and invent a machine that can be embedded in sex organs at birth so any sexual transgression can be tracked!
