So, while trying to figure out this WordPress thing, I come across a link that says ‘Add mature post’.
Now I am hoping for the sake of my sanity that it means a post that is insightful, well-thought out, and shows a lot of life experience. But alas! Tis not to be! Just as my innocence was shattered when I realised that ‘Adult Toys’ did not refer to the alarm clock that makes your coffee at whatever you set the timer on your clock to be.
Innocence shattered, I tell you. In my outrage, I would like to add this: Mature means experienced, insightful, and sometimes wholesome. Not that I can’t enjoy a dirty joke. I just want it labelled as such. I would pass on something labelled “Bran Muffins” even if it is in the chocolate section – because it is labelled bran muffins. I think WordPress should rename the link to “add smutty post +18 years and over”. It is clearly defined with no confusion.
Mature has its own connotations. Use wisely.
