Hot take, people seem to always forget that hot takes are meant to be "deliberately provocative and/or sensational, and based on shallow moralizing."
Like when someone responds "This is a bad take" to a post that isn't a hot take, it comes across as aggressive to me, like labelling someones elses random post as a take, is like elevating it to a status of importance to shame the original poster's thoughts.
@mxsiege it’s the assumption that someone is being purposefully provocative that does it
@Cathymarinara Yeah, makes me feel like people force a toot up onto a soapbox so its suddenly a figure of authority.
