don't look down

Someone posted a cautionary tale that I found offensive and harmful. There are a number of things wrong with it, IMO, but what jumped out at me was "protect myself from boys" and the doctor "looming" over the narrator, neither of which is particularly helpful.

Thanks for posting this. :(

At the very, very least, it needs some trigger warnings...

Hi, eavanmoore. Thank you for bringing this post to our attention! We will be requesting content warnings for the post and addressing concerns of misinformation, but we would also like to raise concerns with the wording of your post. Calling the post an "overdramatic creative nonfiction project" is incredibly disrespectful towards what is relayed as an actual experience of one of our members. While we encourage everyone to use CVP as a means to bring Safe Space concerns to the attention of the mod team, we would like to remind everyone that it is not a place to pass judgment on the style or experiences of other members.

You're right, I shouldn't have said that. It wasn't the OP's style in itself that I objected to, it was the use to which they were putting it. I've edited my post.
