Content Warnings are not for "offensive content" (although offensive content should be under a CW)
they are for people to consent to the consent to reading/interacting with more Serious or Harmful topics
it's not self-censorship. it's providing the subject matter to folks before they engage with the content so they can choose to interact or disengage based on their well-being and other things
Which is why taking the headphone jack out of devices is criminal. Capitalism reached a failure point when people could buy an affordable sound system and listen to it for decades without spending another dime, so it got hard at work on one hand playing up audiophile BS (you gotta buy this $1000 cord!!!) and on the other breaking compatibility with older perfectly good equipment (oops no headphone jack! Just use this dongle or bluetooth! Oh sorry you dont own your music, listen to this ad!).

It's really weird looking at the old stereo system my family had back in the 80's, with the speaker hookups that were just bare wires we had to jam into holes, and also they didn't even have always on microphones with permanent connections back to entirely unaccountable multinational corporations who don't pay their fucking taxes. Primitive AF.
