What is the difference between 'concern trolling' and plain 'concern'?

Asked by

Did people ask you to be concerned? Non-consentual concern that not only objectifies but also attempts to assume things about a person or group of people. It has absolutely nothing to do with the intended target and everything to do with the person attempting to derail conversations to give their “opinion” on a matter that doesn’t involve them (aka another person’s body, health, everything).
