Observations on my NSFW bot 

Each post from @somebearlove has "chubby/bear/hairy" written as a content warning. These are the body types I like the most, thus why I created the bot to share them here on Mastodon

But in the beginning it was more geared towards _actual_ chubby people. Y'know, people with actual fat. I didn't pay too much attention to the initial goal and shared muscle bears and some other body types over the past months

Observations on my NSFW bot 

@somebearlove what I noticed ever since I created the bots is that the posts that get shares/retoots are almost always those showing non-fat bodies, from otters to muscle bears with well chiseled abs. I'm not against those retoots, I just wonder that if posts with more fit bodies were to disappear I'd lose those followers

@somebearlove I'm not sure whether I'll tighten what I share on the bot, or whether I want that in the first place. Not sure if I have something to achieve here, but the observation stands: I created the bot to share bodies I like and (often) don't have much exposure, but the ones that get the most shares/retoots are the gym-type or otter kind of bodies

granted, the "bear" type is actually a supertype: it might make sense to include muscle bears in the mix, but it's just that there's already so many profiles sharing these exclusively bodies that I'm not really sure my bot is adding anything at all

anyway, Sunday's musings :|

@urso While there's the occasional non chub post, I feel like most posts are still true to what you intend(ed). In the end you're the one choosing the content that gets posted, so it should always be something you approve of.

But yeah, normative-body bears do get a lot of exposure already, and there's still plenty of shaming around fat bodies. Your work in the bot is validating, both for chub types, and for 'casual' adult content. Thanks so much for that.
