it’s ironic that all the teens are fleeing here after Tumblr closed when (one) of the things that killed Tumblr was an ongoing structural inability to separate minors who want to talk about TV shows from a Library of Alexandria’s worth of amateur porn
like, norms are great, but the fundamental structure of mastodon makes it really difficult if not impossible to enforce that key boundary. the fact is that many porn accounts aren’t going to turn on the NSFW flag unless you force them to
@rosef That is a huge concern to me, and I'd go a step further and say I cannot think of a good reason for someone my age to interact casually with a minor who is a stranger. It's bad news.
