UGHHHH...OK. Time to deprogram shit.

See. A phobia is a legitimate recognized irrational fear. "Trigger warning" is bullshit pop-psychology tumblr invented.

The idea of trigger warnings was invented by psychiatrists when addressing PTSD patients, though... ? For people who'd been to war or victims of abuse. It's been co-opted into this idea of "avoid anything offensive" which kind of defeats the purpose of them in the first place.


I've only seen them, for reals, in my Women's Studies classes before discussions/lectures that involved RAEP and abuse, and then back in the day online on different forums before people would start talking about cutting or other self-harm. Guess I'm lucky I don't have to experience the craziness that it's become on some campuses and online communities.


Anyway, my son really likes wobegong sharks so here's one:



The have one or two at the Omaha Zoo, and it's fun to try and spot them. They blend in really well.

Triggers are an actual thing. In my self defense class we watched a vid where a guy went around to bars drugging women, dragging them out later and raping them. No one stopped him even though the girls sort of barely fought back. Triggered me hardcore but I dealt with it.

For Sharp I know his spider phobia so I just warn him if I know a spider is involved. I don't see it as equivalent

Okay definitions of arachnophobia and trigger shit isn't what this is about, we should get back to wacky/fun/bonkers stuff involving the ocean. Cause that's the point of this.

This is exactly why I'm very supportive or even encouraging about women getting concealed carry licenses and firearms training (cops generally are not preventative forces, the known bystander effect will prevent people from intervening, but you really need to be comfortable with guns and be trained in their use.)

Not that it'd matter in NYC because of their super retrograde laws.

"Trigger warning? MORE LIKE TRIGGER HAPPY!" is another joke.
