IMO, pressure on to push CW usage closer to the "NSFW" mainstream cultural standard is not necessarily a bad thing. I acknowledge this is probably a classic straight white guy take but i think CW is weird! I honestly have a hard time believing that the CW feature / culture is as good at preventing harm as its hard-core adherents claim.

The question of what should be CW'd, what images should be fogged until click, etc, its subjective, culturally relative, and I feel like the current status quo might be a that has made black folks feel uncomfortable / unwelcome here.

Some of this is based on reading @shengokai takes on Mastodon and it's affordances, some of it from other posts I've seen around, I am curious what other ppl around me think.
