I'm not a troll. I'm really not. There's just something terribly disturbing about the way content warnings are used on here. My interest in politics defines me as a person, and asking me to conceal it with a "warning" is an infuriatingly offensive request to make. It implies that my thoughts are somehow uncouth and shouldn't be shared in public. How outraged wouldn't the leftist instances be if a right-wing instance demanded warnings on gay pride statuses?

@kodo I expect it from parties. It's when otherwise sane and reasonable people do it that it really gets to me
