Trigger Warnings or Nah

Yes! I do the same and mean no harm, but in the big spectrum I do think TW just holds us back. We use TW and let go of talking about stuff that ends up being romanticized, like pedophilia for example. I was in a debate one time and one of the women was presenting an essay about pornography and lesbians, and at one point she had to talk about child pornography in a graphic way. There’s no trigger warning for survivors and some of them felt anxiety and cried, but what could we do? WE need to talk about these things. Survivors do. I myself was raped and some fucked up shit makes me cringe, but I have no way out other than facing what happened to me and understanding the political implications in rape.

Sorry for my bad english, its not my first language.
