this thread triggers me. u need to put a "/" next time ok. think of us cats. think of what we go through. we only have 9 lives. i already lost 2 thanks to threads like these. remember that humans nuter us and make us stay inside so we can't chase birds and squirrels and butterflies. they make us poop in the same place, and forget to empty our boxes so we have nowhere to put our poop. think of how our lives are completely more important than yours and how you need to cater to our every whim

Eh, it's more of a thing on college campuses than it is about Tumblr. It's something detrimental and just more so to feminism in particular.

I was always under the impression that "trigger warnings" had more to do with "dank memes" than reality.

When I visited my college campus a while ago to attend a writers' week program, I saw people complaining about how the pro-life picketers had images on their signs that bothered people, so pro-life should not be allowed to picket on campus. I'm pro-choice and all but that's a pretty stupid reason to prevent people from picketing.

There were also issues in my high school. Students were demanding trigger warnings for books and refusing to read books like The Things They Carried because of the graphic nature of war that disturbed them.

Quite ridiculous if you ask me. I bet those students have never actually experienced a day of real hardship in their lives. They are so comfortably well-off that they have to find something to complain about. They are spinning around in circles and retreating to smaller comfort zones within their comfort zones.

Warning not for the faint at heart

Exactly. It's also extremely inhibiting to professors. More students are imposing censorship to fit their brand of opinion or entitlement. When professors are scared of students lugging mattresses into their office--well, we got a significant problem with the higher education forum.



You know, something about the way you word that, really cracks me up. ...

Maybe we should make them some matresses from playdough, those are smaller and won't cause as much hindrance, and then they can colour then with the crayons, and we put some kawaii music in the background...

you know what that description of that safe space literally made me think of, seriously? Day occupation at a mental hospital for people with down who never mentally get past the age of 7. Seriously.

I have to say, I am not sure some of these students have managed that, so maybe it's appropiate...
