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.


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.


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.

I hear the word 'trigger' so much online it's pretty much lost all meaning to me. :shrug:

I feel that you didn't even bother to read the guys' description, you sad, sad, sad, human being. The person is just pointing out that if you purposely go and look at things which you may expect to be triggered by, don't you think that's a little stupid? It's like someone who's trigger is rape for example, and then they purposely look up things in relation of rape, or what you would obviously expect to find that sort of content on websites or images. Basically what you're doing is this: "Oh gee whiz, although I fear I may see something which will trigger me, it's fine! I'll just bitch about it to the person who presents that content and shame them for something which was entirely my fault!".

The person isn't shaming anyone with triggers, you silly goose. He/she is just pointing out that if you were to have a trigger, and then you purposely saw content which offends you and triggers you, wouldn't you think that maybe you shouldn't have been searching up those sort of stuff?

Triggers are normal events that remind a person of a traumatic one. Hearing the word rape can bring to mind memories of rape for a rape victim which can make the word triggering. It’s merely an unexpected reminder of a traumatic event. What isn't discussed on Tumblr is how in normal therapy they try to move the victim past the trigger and help them cope with the reminders to that event and process them in a less harmful manner. They don't bubble wrap the world and try to attach warnings to the entire world, they merely help the victim cope with the association and overcome the debilitating effects. Anyone who demands trigger warnings is an idiot expecting life to cater to their every whim like their parents did.

This is why I fucking hate this Tumblerette trigger bullshit. Instead of encouraging people to grow and overcome their problems, whether it'd be a phobia, a physical condition or some sort of adversity, it encourages them to stagnate and stew in those problems, and force the world to adapt around them. It's fucking disgusting.
