New statesman article on trigger warnings

Post  hugorune on Wed Jan 30, 2013 6:02 am

An interesting article suggesting that trigger warnings are of limited use for PTSD sufferers.

It is interesting, thanks.

I've not had PTSD, and as the article says there's no one right way people ought to respond to potential triggers.

I get worried that by over-use these sort of things become de-valued and then are easy to dismiss. And potentially anybody can be triggered by potentially anything. But on the whole I think it's better to be safe than sorry when talking about the sort of serious issues the article mentions.
