It's weird and interesting when I share a link to fediverse post with a non-fedi friend, and that link has a content warning for something that most folks wouldn't CW. E.g. a photo of some food.

They often laugh or are at least confused that it was "flagged as sensitive content" and it feels a little awkward to explain that "we do things differently here as a courtesy to a more diverse range of users." I feel the need (but not always the capacity) to justify why that is the case.

Anyone else?

@mattcen It's like a spoiler warning before you ruin the ending of a show someone really wants to see. Or the result of the big game they haven't watched yet.

@mattcen I really want to talk about the game with you, but if you haven't watched it yet, I'll wait.
