Petition to stop using "triggered" ironically

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Goddamnit I need to rant about this, even though it isn't going to do shit (I'm not an idiot) it'll help make my thoughts coherent enough to convince people not to do this instead of just frothing at the mouth when they do.

 

"Triggers" are legitimate problems. They're when people with PTSD are suddenly thrown back to their darkest memories. They're when people with depression are suddenly reminded of their darkest thoughts. Words can hurt a hell lot, especially when your mind is turned against you. Mocking "triggers" is just making people ashamed to say they aren't comfortable talking about something or don't want something brought up. It's not funny, it's just douchebaggery and delegitimizes people who're trying to avoid the darkest corners of their own minds. Just stop.

 

I swear, if someone comments #triggered... You are the result of an unbroken chain of people who have successfully found a mate and reproduced. I hope for us all that you're the end of that line

Do you realize that, by definition, everything you say ironically will have an alternative, literal meaning that someone may use seriously in a different context?

Dude... This isn't irony, this is on the verge of satire and just outright mockery. Irony is fine within it's rights, but abused like this and the literal meaning gets lost in the process

But isn't the ironic use of ´triggered´ aimed at the people that will claim to be triggered by litteraly everything?

While you could argue that the continued ironic use will lead to a delegitimization of people suffering from PTSD, depression, etc., the people who claims to be triggered by any and all things are hindering discussion and are certainly delegitimizing the experiences of people with actual problems.

See now if I actually cared about discussion I could work a paragraph or two this way, but I can't. Because I don't care and think all of these "triggers" frankly deserve to be made fun of.

I'll admit it's an annoying trend.

@Trollbot is triggered by the trigger thread.


The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place.

No. The meaning of the word has changed, it lost all meaning years ago when feminists started using it as soon as they got offended.

When I use the word "triggered", I'm mocking SJWs and the like.

I'm triggered by the fact that you're triggered by people saying they're triggered.

Just don't say triggered, make it out to be a serious thing, provide evidence and bring a buddy or accomplice to soften up the mood, if you have actual problems and want to see a doctor, they won't make fun of you. And if you are really hurt by words, get off the fucking internet and go see a psychiatrist :P

Precisely, and why I hope to whatever deity might have influence over these matters that they don't make any more bebeh's. We don't need that in the gene pool

I think you missed the joke - because you're implying that literally everyone should stop reproducing lol.

Ehhhh you may want to reword that, if you're specifically talking about those people only.

 

Because if you actually read the full paragraph you wrote in the OP, you're basically saying that them saying "triggered" is the result of "an unbroken chain of people who have successfully found a mate and reproduced".

 

Do you realize now how that sentence literally makes no sense? In fact, I'd call it nonsense. I'm just pointing out that you're basically saying people who say "triggered" in this thread are the result of... well... nothing special. Nothing different then any other person.

 

It's... just really not much of an insult (or "burn" for those cool kids) against them.

 

Not saying anything wrong with the rest of your post (Though I personally strongly disagree with you - people who get "triggered" over the slightest thing do more harm to the "cause" then people who say it ironically, but your post was otherwise well thought out).

@dalekphalm I'm perfectly aware of what I said. Perhaps the conversational tone wasn't implied as heavily as I thought but the "..." wasn't a colon,  it wasn't saying if you _____, THEN you're the result of an unbroken chain, the first part was how you'd naturally address someone in a conversation. Sorry for the confusion.
