A Note on Trigger Warnings

Personally, I like the idea of *content* warnings, as opposed to trigger warnings, if you’re unsure about if your post will be triggering to anyone. Just a quick summary of the content, a few lines (or even just a list of words), at the top. I do trigger warnings for obviously-triggering topics like self-harm, suicide, etc, and content warnings for the rest. 🙂

If you read a lot on the internet, chances are you’ve seen a trigger warning on a post — a disclaimer used to warn readers that the material that follows might be potentially traumatic, objectionable, or offensive. It might look like this:

Trigger Warning: This post discusses self-harm, bulimia, and eating disorders.

Or simply:

TW: racism, sexism.
