Honestly did not know you were trying to make a joke. I have a sense of humor, just a different one than you have yourself. Apologies, I guess.

"Triggered?"


I fucking hate this god damn word. In less than a year it seems to have transformed in meaning.

Originally if meant that something (a story, movie, gif, imagery of some sort) had sort of flipped (triggered if you will) a switch in someone's mind that makes them relive an occurrence of past trauma. Like a rape scene in a movie might cause a person that has been raped to recall that moment.

Now it somehow means worked up or offended... and everyone keeps fucking saying it.

I guess my joke wasn't funny because I have to explain it and any joke you have to explain fucking failed.

I used "triggered" and "fee-fees" and "snowflake" because they are common (cliched) expressions used by people on the interwebs from BOTH those on the left and right to mock each other. Considering my jokes were political, and knowing williamssl's political opinion AND his opinion about me, I thought it would be humorous to use these meme words in one post.

Clearly, that effort failed in a colossal way, and I am both ashamed and embarrassed. I apologize to all those who might be trigg - offended - by my lame joke.

The above is true (referring to BBMN's post). I'm curious as to the origin of it, though. When did "triggered" start referring to memories of one's past being resurfaced? A literal definition of the word is "(of a response) caused by particular action, process, or situation" so you'd think being triggered would just mean that someone responds to something. Example: "My question triggered a response." This wouldn't necessarily mean that the response was defensive or angry, just that it existed. Somehow it became a synonym for the "past memories" version AKA the "trigger warning" version. And now it's a synonym for defensive disagreement.


I don't know why I'm trying to analyze this. I must be bored.

A lot of it got into the common lexicon back in the late 1980's/early 1990's when pop psychologists (like the ones that would go on shows like Oprah) were pushing recovered memory syndrome, in which something so traumatic occurred to someone that they mentally buried it until something they saw/heard/smelled/tasted later on in life would "trigger" the memories back to life. It was used fairly recklessly by these shrinks to claim there'd been a massive wave of rapes by dads/grandads on the little kids in the their families. The theory was mostly debunked later on by better studies but, like the complete media-driven bullshit over satanism or pedophile rings operating in day-care centres, the damage from the moral panic it caused was done. Thousands of families were basically destroyed by reckless psychology that distorted harmless events barely remembered from childhood into a wave of perversion.

"Triggered" right now seems to have been turned into something that means little more than some moralist scold throwing a tantrum merely at the sight or sound of something they don't like, and that they're now willing to use the protest power of the campus gender/womyn's studies departments to shut down anything that offends them. It's basically the same game the religious right used to play with movies, TV shows, rock and roll, and Dungeons & Dragons, except that it's coming from the left instead of the right. Same puritanical bullshit though, this time using emotional upset as a pretext to wipe out free speech.





You know, everyone says it's not supposed to make sense, like that's the whole point, dude. And I'm just saying, you know, that's like an excuse for lazy storytelling. Just don't sell me shite and tell me it's gold, all right? I might be stoned, but I'm not high. You know what I mean?

"In an interview about trigger warnings for The Daily Telegraph, Professor Metin Basoglu, a psychologist internationally recognised for his trauma research, said that "instead of encouraging a culture of avoidance, [the media] should be encouraging exposure. Most trauma victims avoid situations that remind them of the experience. Avoidance means helplessness and helplessness means depression. That's not good." Richard J. McNally, a Professor of Psychology at Harvard University, wrote in the Pacific Standard that "trigger warnings are designed to help victims avoid reminders of their trauma, thereby preventing emotional discomfort. Yet avoidance reinforces PTSD. Conversely, systematic exposure to triggers and the memories they provoke is the most effective means of overcoming the disorder." McNally's article cites several academic studies of PTSD sufferers in support of these claims."

Take your fuckin discussion elsewhere. This is a thread of jokes. Funny or not just jokes...to escape every asshole opinion about everything and anything.

Now...
