    Friendly reminder to check movies for triggers before recommending them to anyone else, lest you trigger them ;O;

    http://www.movietriggers.com/


    Go there, search for a movie, post the weirdest trigger it's tagged with.

    Pulp Fiction: "interracial relationship".

    Independence Day: "blatant fucking sexism" ;O;

    Jurassic Park: "crying" (I beg you don't ;O; )

    Frozen: "be a good girl", "Disneywashing" and... "misrepresentation of British Petrol".

    Yeah :mellow:

    See, this is why I maintain that people should only be allowed to go online after obtaining an Online Passport of some kind. We need to start separating the grain from the chaff. :mellow:

    If that's all they took away from Ving Rhames getting buttfucked by a bunch of rednecks, I suppose that's also a little step forward for society.

    Wait...

    "Reference to sodomy"

    Oh, nevermind.

    Does it count as a reference to sodomy if it's literally sodomy?

    Can someone explain to me what a "trigger" means? Is it when you see something you don't like and whine like a dipshit as if it's physically hurting you when in reality you're just having a retarded fit over something small?

    Originally triggers referred to something that would "trigger" a person's PTSD, causing panic attacks, extreme anxiety, etc. It'd be used for, say, soldiers returning from war and victims of traumatic rapes. It was a perfectly fine, legitimate term.

    Then, of course, Tumblr got their hands on it and it became pretty much exactly how you described it. You don't like something? It made you mildly uncomfortable? Well, obviously, you were triggered, and your little problems are obviously on par with veterans and rape victims.

    These people are trying to put "trigger warnings" on everything on the offchance that someone might be even mildly offensive. There's a serious push in some universities for professors to provide "trigger warnings" for their courses and, worse, classic literature.

    For instance... The Great Gatsby [TW: Sex, sexism, violence, misogyny, racism, pools]

    Shit's bad, yo.

    You ever notice these Tumblr feminazi kids are all definition skewing retards who never use words properly?
    I mean really, "feminism" is one of the key things they abuse. To put man-hatred to be the same as women pushing for their rights? Then they abuse that term to blanket themselves against anyone who accuses them for sexism by saying "hey I'm a feminist, you're against me, you're against women, so you're the sexist".

    Post Traumatic Disorder? Yeah, no, having a retarded shitfit is not being traumatized, it's just your retarded feeble brain not being able to comprehend something not going your way.

    All of these zoo animals need to be herded back to fucking elementary school.

    Thinking about it that may have already happened.
    I once did a reverse forensic engineering course and they warned me ahead of time that there would be pictures of blood and such (part of it was analysis of a ladder accident and it included scene photos).

    I am about as desensitised as anybody that read woundcare magazines in their formative years and frequented skateparks in the later ones but it did amuse.

    It's easy when you're just huffing cheeto dust in your parents' basement and sucking down lattes at the local Starbucks.

    Gee, I wonder why it would have some as awful as that. It's almost as if the story was written from the 1920s, when all of those things were happening
