What you call triggered, we used to call rustled. You appear to have just rustled your own jimmies.

Triggered!

Pu##y Hats? Why is it acceptable now to just say this word and put in on signs. Our children are watching. Is this the language you want them to use to refer to women's vaginas.

Trump has been vilified for saying he grabs women by the p###y's. So to counter that, women take the vulgar term and sink down to his level. It's cringeworthy.

So if this is an acceptable word to use in public, then can we now start calling a man's penis a C##k?
Next up...Men's march with the appropriately named C##k hats...

I am so tired of the whole "triggered" trend.

But the "emotional charge" we attached to words is exactly why I became interested long ago in the process of detaching words from their moral connatations.

I wrote a thread here once on the meaning of "manipulation" , pointing out we can remind ourselves of it's various other meanings beyond the common usage of describing covert psychological manipulation. Also the word "ego", which for some people also has a sort of negative charge to it, associating it with selfish and insensitive behavior - whereas in some circles it describes self awareness, having not only a neutral association, but sometimes very positive.

These sorts of words fascinated me because I observed them to be "triggers" for many, simply because they seemed to have forgotten that these words have many different subtle interpretations or meanings - only one would come to mind when hearing it (or reading it). The more that come to mind upon haring/reading it, the less emotional reflex occurs. It gives the brain time to consider - what do they mean exactly? Is there other ways I can hear this ?

I once read half of L. Ron Hubbards "Dianetics", and although it got more and more boring as it went along (entering into the "how to make a ubermensche" type of nonsense that always loses my attention) I did find his ideas about processing emotional charges to concepts and language rather pertinant. I do think he might have been on to something there.

Reacting emotionally to language is normal, but it seems lately the American trend to accuse someone of being triggered ten times a day seems as stupid as the speaker who is trying to paint the other to be. We mustn't forget that though a person can have a reaction so emotional they lose some of their intellectual capacity, that does not mean it is systematic. Because you care about an issue and comment or argue with it does NOT mean you are irrational.

What I keep wondering is -
Why do so many WANT to "trigger" their fellow countrymen and women?

It is a fascinating phenomenon, and brings up so many questions regarding the current collective consciousness.

That was kind of the point of my sarcastic / satirical thread. You put it in a very eloquent and thoughtful way that I could not. Thank you
