Thread of my huge list of CWs with explanations. Typo about eating disorders + new CW suggestions about AI generated images and politics. Boost appreciated 

I made a typo about a CW for eating disorders! I meant "pica" and not "tica" ⚠️

Also, I forgot to add a CW in this list, for AI generated pictures since a lot of folks are asking for it.

Some need CWs for politics as well!

Thanks for caring :ablobcatheartsqueeze:

@testoceratops Nigga you've flooded my whole TWKN with your "triggers", I ain't reading that shit.

Thread of my huge list of CWs with explanations. Medical, abuse and health-related topics mentioned. Boost appreciated 

@testoceratops flagging all pregnancy stuff in general, especially very notable images or sonograms or descriptions of the birthing or pregnancy experience, is valuable for those of us with tokophobia. It may be joyful for others, but for me, pregnancy and discussion of it is often nightmare & panic inducing. Thanks for this thread!

@testoceratops yeah! A lot of people don't understand why it can be hard, but considering how common tokophobia is (at least 2% of cis women have it, plus those of us who aren't!) I just wanted to give some context for anyone reading the thread. It makes a huge difference! 😊

@Fishercat Thank you so much for your support, it means a lot.

It was important to me so I decided I'd do it again and explain if people need more informations. And if I receive hate messages, I'll just block!
