Trigger Warnings by Foedus-Stamps Trigger Warnings by Foedus-Stamps
I have a keen dislike for 'trigger warnings', because in all honesty, the people who put trigger warnings put them up for stupid shit. OMG theres BLOOD. Trigger Warning. OMG RAPE SAID THE WORD RAPE. Trigger Warning. OMG SEX. Trigger Warning. OMG JESUS HATE. Trigger Warning.

In all honesty, and in my opinion, they should just rename all the triggers in one thing.

WARNING: MAY TRIGGER BUTTHURT.

You were raped, it was painful, I get that, but if you are going to flail and go into a full blown episode because someone said the word online, you really, really need to get mental help for it. I'm not saying it to be a dick, I'm saying it because you NEED IT.

And fuck, if I have to put a trigger on the word rape, go to each and every Yaoi-fucktard and tell them to do the same.

Yeah, I admit I don't like certain topics. Does that mean I need a trigger warning? Fuck no. And we already have a 'Mature' tag for things such as sex and violence, so if you're going to be AFFECTED by those things, why the fuck are you LOOKING at them..

Now, someone's probably going to go 'BUT WAH POST TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER'. Yeah. I have it. But I get help for it. I don't flail and wail online about how a picture of a dying soldier sent me into a psychotic breakdown. In fact, it rarely does that at all anymore.

WHY YOU ASK!?!

Easy, I got help.


Point I'm trying to Make?: If you're being affected by something to the point you need a 'trigger warning?' don't baw and bitch at the people who are 'causing the trigger'. Get help for it, because obviously you have some serious, unresolved issues.

... My main question is why. Trigger warnings take like, two seconds to write. That's a pretty small price to pay in order to help someone avoid content that could trigger a panic attack or bring up painful memories. People who have sufferered physical\sexual abuse DO exist, and they DO use the internet. There is seriously no decent reason at all for people to not use trigger warnings. (Rubs temples)

You can get help, but that doesn't mean everything will be okay. would it really kill someone to write: tw: Blood or tw: Rape Mention? Honestly, why be a dick? Recovery is a long process and sometimes things like blood or the mention of rape when you've seen something traumatic can through you into a full blown panic attack. 

The OP dealt with PTSD in their own way, but not every deals with it the same way. People are different. Some like the comfort of trigger warnings, others don't need them.

I like to use them just in case. It's our responsibility to make the internet a better place, and using TW's help that.

Honestly, I think they're damn useless. Not everyone who was victimized will be brought to tears or panic by the very mention of rape or a speck of blood.

And triggers can be overcome. Hiding behind warnings your whole life isn't going to make it better.


Besides, catering to the every whim and need of every single person on this planet is hard as all hell, and giving some people special tags just because they get upset at the sight of something is pretty stupid, in my opinion. Especially given how many people have triggers, and how many triggers there are.

The sight of menstrual blood, feces, vomit, and videos / pictures of violent animal and child abuse gives me bad anxiety attacks (due to previous experiences and because any rational human being will get upset over seeing a child or animal getting beaten), yet I don't expect or even command people to tag them for me just so I won't get them. The logical thing to do would be, if I don't like it, I stay away from anything that may obviously contain them. If I happen to come across it, anyway, and it triggers me, then I focus more on calming myself down than spewing 'OMG TAG THIS !1' at the poster.

If your triggers are so bad that you can't even function normally at the sight of the word 'rape' or some blood, you need some serious professional help.


I'm not going to tag a pomegranate because someone thought it looked like a heart.

I just said that. Not everyone reacts the same to triggers. Sometimes, they are unavoidable in real life. It is best to try and find a calm place when you're having an anxiety attack. 

Lot's of people who like trigger warnings ARE getting mental help. And they do stay away from things that trigger them. 

But, online, things are different. Things are more accessible and you sometimes get things you didn't ask for. 
It would be nice to have a warning on things like blood, body horror, rape, vomit, etc,. I'm not asking you to trigger warn about fruit. That is silly. 

It's like saying, "Why do movies have ratings?" So you can avoid unwanted content. The same goes for TWs. 

Also, not everyone in the world is going to see your post or artwork. I've been asked to trigger warn on certain tumblr posts, and the people asking were nothing short of kind and respectful.  It isn't that hard to tag something and it's sorta stupid, in my opinion, to not use them when it's obvious to do so.

Sorry about my earlier rudeness. u n u

Like I said, I honestly find it pretty silly to tag stuff like that. I understand not wanting to see it, of course, whether because it's gross or if it really triggers you, but there will always be a time when you'll see it again.

Like blood, for example. Gods forbid you have to see a large amount of blood at one time, especially when it's not fake or is a serious situation, but it should be common sense that because just about every living creature on Earth has blood - you're going to see it at some point in your life. You can't put a trigger warning on real life, as you said, and staying sheltered from the things that trigger you is a) almost impossible (depending on the trigger, at least), and b) rather idiotic. Same goes with rape, murder, abuse, death, etc.

It exists out there, be it because of horrible people or because of how life works, and trying to hide behind warnings won't prepare you to deal with your triggers if you come across them in real life. People bleed, people rape and murder (and are the victims of such crimes), and people do terrible things, but a trigger warning won't flush all that down the drain. It will always exist, unfortunately, and sometimes it's your own mind that reminds you of the traumatic event.

Besides, with the nature of triggers, some people associate their experience with something unrelated - maybe, their abusive parent's favourite song that they loved to play, or the place they met their rapist / were raped. With that in mind, we'd have to put a trigger warning on everything to prevent someone from being uncomfortable.

I can understand getting triggered by the word "Rape" or "War" cause lets call it like it is. Rape is a serious crime. And for people with PTSD it must be really hard for them. I understand that!

 But if i see a picture of somebody's cut up arm on Tumblr, then i get the urge to cut up my own arm. That is so stupid! Triggered because of a fetish, STUPID. Triggered because someone called you stupid, STUPID!! Cause i know better than to go on tumblr and search depressing stuff on purpose, then all of a sudden get triggered. Please.......Just leave the internet if your THAT trigger proned. Its for your own good.

Now don't even get me started with homophobes!

Amen! I'm sick and tired of all the bullshit the little pussies over tumblr invent. Yeah, there are things that can/will make someone uncomfortable or worse, it's something you should be expacting when you plug in the bloody Internet. Yeah, trigger warnings are good to have for extreme circumstances, but not for literally every tiny thing that makes you uncomfortable like... pomegranades or a picture of someone's fingertip bleeding a bit.

I also had a phobia of blood when I was around fourteen, but I got tired if it. So I borrowed Quake 3 - a game where people will literally blow apart and leave their guts all over the place - from my cousine and began playing it. At first I faced against the turned off TV so I could see the monitor from its reflection, but with things being small and looking not really clear. Then as I got used to the "black splatters", I started playing other games with blood on as well, just very minimal at first, then more, and more, until I was comfortable enough with it, then I went back to Quake. Guess what, I'm totally okay with blood now most of the times, though many grotesque horror films still make me want to throw up.

And what do these idiots do? Trying to brush their little problem under the couch and lash out on everyone who doesn't obey all their little princess wishes instead of seeking help, or even trying to help themselves. Pathetic, really.

I fucking hate tumblr and all the shit it spews. Not even exaggerating when I say that it's the asshole of the internet. Not a single one of them has PTSD, there is no reason for "trigger warnings" . " BOO HUOH I DUN LIKE BLUD THE INTERNET GAVE ME ANXIETY, PTSD, OCD, ASPERGERS, ADD, AMD AUTISM AND THIS OFFENDS ME!" 

If I could choose one thing to have never existed, it would be tumblr, no question.
