Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    Almost, except it's not meant for 'awwww your poor widdle fee-fees got hurt', it's your PTSD being triggered, which is magnitudes less silly.

    You know what's interesting? If I YouTube Rebecca Black, I can't find the official music video off hand. But that's the one you're all posting. Which means you fuckers are digging for it. You fuckers like it.

    Ok. So it specifically references people with a disorder. That makes a lot more sense.

    So I don't have to be like "Trigger warning, cat falling off slippery counter onto floor" or something.

    Only things that might legitimately induce an episode.

    For certain situations, it's a good idea though.

    For instance, a feminist blog that veers between posting pictures of the writer's cats and graphic descriptions of an eleven year old being raped.

    triggers everywhere

    I hear you - I get really distraught when bloggers sucker punch me with posts about their cats.

    Sometimes I really regret bitching about feminist blogs with Pony in public and I bring up one thing that bothers me, because then people bring it up six months later and I just throw my hands up.

    So uh

    why exactly do they feel the need to graphically describe a child getting raped?

    I'm more inquiring for my own benefit so I am at least familiar with the concept and what legitimate uses it may have. It seems like a small thing I can do that in some situations is useful, and if someone calls me out when I don't and I don't feel I needed to I'll tell them to fly a kite.

    Stuff like the recent Texas brouhaha, explaining why the New York Times coverage is so inherently flawed.

    Or a writer will describe her own rape as a child as a cathartic process.

    Stuff like that.

    It's a Japanese restaurant, it's Arigato Sushi or something like that.

    He's not an actual Japanese, but it's not like I can tell the difference. I'll just ooh and aah over the fact that he can use chopsticks.
