Re: TRIGGER WARNING: OPINION YOU PROBABLY DON'T SHARE

What I'm saying is this: If you want to have a positive, productive discussion about trigger warnings and their utility, you need to start by demonstrating you're capable of having such a discussion.

TRIGGER WARNING: OPINION YOU PROBABLY DON'T SHARE

trigger warnings are the stupidest, most presumptious thing i've ever seen a waste of everyone's time, protect no-one except those who set out to be offended or broadcast their personal issues, and are a perverse symbol of internet liberal culture; a kind of we're so tolerant we have a whole convent...

If the father is 11, she's a known child molester and the kid is proof of that, whether she's been charged or not. Criminals in general can raise children. Known child molesters, perhaps not. People who have been charged with a crime in the past are now violently reliving their arrest. You need to ...
