    Goddamn it.

    Why couldn’t you have warned me that this content would challenge my notions of the validity of selectively prescreening all content for possibly disturbing content due to some unknown previous trauma and providing a warning about it. I’m all triggered because now you’ve challenged my beliefs.

    You can't just ask a question like that without giving us time to process the nature of the inbound request.

    The college I worked had The Coddling of the American Mind (2018) as the quarterly faculty reading recommendation. It is extremely well written, well researched, interesting, and on point. I highly recommend it.

    The book grew out of this article by the same name from 2015: https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine...n-mind/399356/

    Trigger warnings are basically antithetical to modern psychology. Trigger warnings rely on falsely perceived fragility and reinforce avoidance rather than confronting and processing problems which magnifies negative reactions in the name of avoiding them.

    I don't know about that, but IMO they're antithetical to what a university and liberal arts education is supposed to be about--exposure to new and challenging ideas. How the fuck cann you have that message existing alongside these things?

    Fucking millennials. Get off my lawn and take your stupid trigger warnings with you. I always felt like Gen X was lame when I was young (talkin' bout my g-g-g-generation--oops, forgot the warning for the stutterers), but I think I'd have offed myself if I'd been lumped in with these assholes. Trigger warnings and having people barred from discussing certain topics based on their supposed privilege--just a complete betrayal of what liberalism is fundamentally about and based on.

    Agreed!
    Fucking millennials.
    It's actually Gen Z that was demanding trigger warnings. The youngest Millennials are in their mid 20s.

    But what was is more fucked is the Millenials/Gen X running the show that then agreed to such demands or trumpeted that they were a good idea.

    Or the Gen X shitty parenting of Gen Z made them so coddled as to demand things like trigger warnings.

    Yeah, that would make it Millennials still, right? This shit started like five or six years ago, at least (I think). So they woulda been about 20, and it's the college kids who were all wound up about hearing the wrong word in class, etc. Regardless though, it's fucked.

    And I used to be of the opinion that this was mostly media hype, but I've been hearing from too many people (who aren't reactionary types) that it's only getting more and more pervasive. It's just idiotic.

    So...what, is it used just like a way of calling attention to one’s self? Like virtue signaling I think I’ve heard it called?

    The thesis of Lukianoff and Haidt is that it was the arrival of the Gen Z that coincided with the elevation in higher education of supremacy of emotional reasoning, presumed fragility, etc that are the ideological basis of coddling students with trigger warnings.

    I have been a student or a teacher (just an adjunct) for nearly the entirety of the Millennial's student presence in higher ed as well as all of the Z's presence so far. It was at the border of generational arrival, 2013-2105, that the trigger warning silliness seems to have kicked off when the Z's first showed up.
