Trigger Warnings and ‘Hardening Up’

There’s a deep and profound irony that the people who insist that those who wish merely to be warned prior to being exposed to potentially triggering content are ‘weak’ and ‘need to be challenged’, while that the same time merely pointing out that the argument that they’re presenting is merely echoing factfree, right-wing talking points merits abuse and defriending.

It’s kinda weird* how quickly they object to being mildly challenged on holding ignorant and vapid viewpoints, but insist that other people are the ones that need hardening up. But not them, no no. That they fall apart in the face of mere disagreement is totally acceptable……


*No, not weird at all…..
