I was fortunate enough to get to watch a preview of "The Bro Code" in one of my classes today. Major MAJOR trigger warnings for rape, all forms of assault, abuse, misogyny, womanizing, graphic images, etc. etc. etc. If you get a chance to watch it, and you are up to it, please, do watch it. It is amazing from what I saw.

Spoiler:
There is a lot of discussion of well, everything I mentioned before about triggery-ness. The part that made me want to run out of the room and cry and puke was when they started talking about porn and then they had clips (with the lovely black boxes) from porn where people are being raped, they're crying, they're begging the guy to stop...and then they start talking about rape jokes. This is pretty much the second half of what I got to see, in all of it's hour long glory...

Sorry for the double post.

I'd like to throw in a TW for the Hunger Games trilogy, for general depravity, violence, sexual slavery, torture, and I'm sure there's more that I'm not thinking of at the moment. It's a good series, and I know a movie is coming out in the US, but it does bring up a lot of issues, and it's one of those things where you have to be in the right place to read it (and I wasn't. yay?).

I think violence is an understatement.
Spoiler:
Minors forced to commit murder, obstacles specifically engineered to hurt/kill people or cause them to hurt/kill others, psychological torture surrounding all of this, eventually out-and-out war and bombings.
Also major PTSD, depression, substance abuse and suicidal ideation. I wasn't prepared for how graphic the books are about it, although since they want to keep the movies PG-13 I think they'll be less graphic than the books.

I'm going to wait for a green light on the movie before I go see it. I think you're right, lanicita, and I hope for my brain's sake that it is toned down to keep it PG-13. I'm not too optimistic about my ability to be in the right place and stay in the right place for it.

Sorry for the double post, but I have been informed that there needs to be a trigger warning on the book "She's Come Undone" for rape survivors, domestic violence survivors, eating disorders, depression and suicide.

My SO and I saw Looper, and I thought I'd add a trigger warning for it. It's more graphic than I originally thought, and there needs to be a trigger warning added for suicide, and torture, and I'm sure something else, but I can't remember what.

So a friend of mine is working on an interactive database of triggers for movies so I linked them to this thread. Posting to get this back on the first page.

Also adding a rape trigger for Heathers as well as *maayyybee* suicide.

And how has Girl, interrupted not been mentioned yet? Triggers for suicide, self harm, anorexia, bulimia, and themes of institutionalization. Maybe for abuse as well?
