Content Warnings

Hello DUP,
I have an issue you see?
I have poems show up on my feed,
No way of knowing the tags before I read,
Unless I were to go all the way to the poet's page,
And that fills me with a sense of rage,
I am sex averse/repulsed, and have PTSD too,
This isn't just a bunch of hullabaloo,
Meaning I go from hating reading about/seeing sex/overly sexual things,
To hating reading about/seeing sex/overly sexual things,
And am also reminded of times
As a child and young teen sometimes,
When that kind of stuff would pop up on my computer by accident,
Now, my sex aversion/repulsion is not because of an incident,
But rather how I have always been wired,
That's a taste that for myself, cannot be acquired.
I don't want to police what others write,
But sadly have to drop poets to keep my sanity in sight,
I wish there was more warning as to the nature of the write,
Whether it be violent, or sexual,
Some hints that are contextual,
Because there have recently been very misleading titles,
I'll give you some examples,
I thought one would be about nightmares,
But it was sex, and it snapped my psyche like pincers,
I thought one would be about self harm,
But it was about sex, yet again, setting off an alarm,
I don't always think that way, so I can't always judge by a title
Whether it is sexual, or about mental health, this is vital.
And please don't lecture me on the importance of therapy,
Being sex averse/repulsed, will stay with me until I'm elderly,
And, I'm already seeing a therapist about my PTSD.
Believe me, I've tried to think like the rest of the world,
I've tried to see things from the perspective of the world,
But I'm not like them, and I never will be,
I'm proud to be me.
I just ask for a little warning, alright?

(I know this place is filled with sexual poems, but I didn't realize how much I hated that stuff until long after I joined here and looked back on my life. I also don't read those whom I don't follow, and there are several people here who's work I care to read, and they enjoy reading my work, so that's why I'm still here. This poem is just a vent.)
