I agree that the whole idea of someone being triggered has got out of hand. Of course nobody should purposefully offend others and if they do they are a jerk. That being said, we are all human and will offend others by way of simple human nature (unintentional), simple misunderstanding, or by having a different opinion (sometimes based on life hx etc). I am afraid our society has lost the ability to suck it up and move on. Instead the "triggered" become "victims" who need compensation in one form or another. Schools, and esp. colleges, are supposed to be the place of learning how to hear other points of view, discuss them, learn from each other, and move on, whether you agree or disagree doesn't really matter, the point should be to at least hear and truly consider anothers opinion/point of view. The word trigger, IMO, also sort of implies that the "triggered" has no say so in being triggered (ot their reponse to the trigger) when in fact of course they do. I remember my parents telling me, and me telling my kids to just suck it up, ignore it, whatever, not every insult/offense (real or imagined) needs to be dwelt on. People have lived for how long without having to give a trigger warning, come on now people, get a grip!
I also would like a T-shirt!!
