the reason you need to CW your nudes and porn isn't because someone might be at work. it's because someone might not want to see nudes or porn.

this message has been brought to you by the association of people in favor of content warnings that actually say what the content is.

@metapianycist Agreed! Also, at work, my screen is private, no-one can see it. At home, my screen can be seen by others ...

@metapianycist I feel like #nsfw was a good solution to this problem

@ivesen tagging it is only for searches. cw-ing it as nsfw doesn't actually tell you what the content is, and lots of people have jobs where sexuality is not nsfw. (e.g. sex work, pole dancing, working in a sex toy store)

@metapianycist and the federated timeline! like if you're posting porn that isn't flagged as sensitive or under a CW people from anywhere and everywhere are gonna see it in their federated timeline regardless of if it's a good thing or not

@metapianycist For those of us who are new could you help clarify? Hashtag nsfw helps by marking it as sensitive, and then adding the content warning helps mark it as nudes/porn/etc. in addition?

Trying to make sure before I upload anything lewd. :)

@FatQueerBoi @metapianycist #nsfw just means it comes up in searches i think, cw's are the primary way to give people control over their feeds

@FatQueerBoi Hashtags are for searching; content warnings tell you why the post is hidden so you can decide if you want to view it or not.

@metapianycist It's also about Consent.

Not everyone wants to see things that could be shocking or gross to them.

@metapianycist I never want to see nudes, even if I’m not at work.
