“My suspicion is, unless you have an extremely delicate constitution or unexpressed word-trauma, you are the one who is misusing “trigger” when it comes to a petty annoyance with vocabulary.”
Hmm. Delicate. I’ll have to try that one day. What’s it like?
I don’t experience any form of trauma associated with words. I nearly did, someone threw a dictionary at me once — but they missed. (It was a French dictionary so it would have done little damage if it had hit.)
I do find misuse and abuse of language annoying, but then many with my history do. The top of the list is “woke”. I have yet to find anyone with an intellect that I can respect who uses it.
Just to please/appease you I modified my bio a few hours ago. ;)
