Used to be if you could make your way in America you could make it anywhere..with how things are going right now I doubt y'all are gonna be able to make it out their mom's basement lmao and this cancer culture is going to spread across the whole fucking world creating all kinds of headaches just like feminazism.yeah no thanks I think I'll pass but keep coddling your oversensitive glass skinned losers.
Can I ask what it is about basic understanding and empathy you find so unappealing?
I mean, I get it: there are certain unpleasant realities in the world. But what's happening here is that you're presented with a scenario in which there is a completely optional choice
to cause someone unnecessary discomfort versus allowing them to avoid it, a scenario that costs you literally nothing either way, and your assertion is that people should be made to feel that discomfort due to your personal opinions about toughness and "cancer culture" and a bunch of other buzzwords. When offered a choice about making the world a slightly better or worse place for one particular person, you're deliberately opting to make it a worse place for them. That's not the response of some worldly, thick-skinned culture warrior who knows how the world really works, it's the response of an over-inflated ego who can't stand the idea that someone might ask for better treatment than you feel they deserve. It took me a long fucking time to realize this, but it's not cowardly to ask for concessions for yourself: having the courage to take care of yourself is not weakness.
The real problem here isn't pansies, it's your exaggerated view of how important your fucking imprimatur really is.
So, let me make something clear: there are certain things that I'm triggered by. I won't shrivel up and die to see them, but I would like to avoid that, and that is the end
of that conversation. It's not a debate, you don't get to argue me out of it, I do not have to present my trauma credentials to you to see if I'm "allowed" to have triggers, and I do not care what your opinion is. I am voicing a reality about myself as a person, and if I choose to remove myself from situations that cause me discomfort, then that is what I'll do. I see no value in forcing myself to go through them anyway just because it'll establish my man-cred to some rando stranger.
I mean, what the fuck do you even think people are trying to avoid by requesting trigger warnings? You're arguing that it causes people to miss out on toughening up, but that only works if these people aren't already aware of the things that trigger them, which... I mean, they obviously
are. How else would they know if it triggers them? You are literally just talking nonsense to make yourself sound tougher by putting people down. Base bullying, nothing more.
