I want to see how big this fandom is!
Oh wait now I get what triggers are
Yeah, see, THIS is a trigger. Something that prompts a horrible flashback that makes someone go into a literal panic attack. It is NOT something that makes you slightly uncomfortable, so can we all just stop tossing that word around like it’s nothing.
thank you Wreck It Ralph
Reblogging for valuable commentary
Also, can we talk about how Felix dealt with it? He NEVER used that word again (only once in front of Ralph, never by her), there was never any talk about how she could get over it, and in their wedding they all made plans to help her with her paranoia by recognising her fears and showing she was safe by pointing guns at the window and having extra security.
A++++++ on dealing with mental issues magnificently, Wreck-It Ralph!
Will never not reblog this when I see it
This is why people with actual triggers get angry when you use them to mean “something that makes me mildly uncomfortable for the two seconds it takes me to scroll past it / something on your blog I don’t like and want you to censor and I’ve learned I can use this magic word to get whatever I want.”
Like, no, unless you are having a PTSD style flashback or you have epilepsy, don’t abuse that word so people stop taking it seriously, then have the gall to pretend you give a shit about people with actual triggers.
“men can’t be raped!”
“men always want sex!”
“men can always defend themselves!”
“men can’t control their urge to rape women!”
“men are inherently sexist!”
