Still none the wiser at what a head tit is, but will take the insult;)

trigger - anything that can remotely remind someone of a bad experience
lighthearted - someone having a go at someone else or being very unreasonable or just being a twat but they just don't want to admit it

I Have A Broken Piece Of A Rifle In My Hand And I Don't Know Where It Goes (possible trigger)

Yes, your thread is not a proper thread unless it has ***WARNING!!! POSSIBLE TRIGGER!!!!!*** in the title. Its like the bleeding Daily Mail round here.

That, or [**********GRAPHIC CONTENT****************]

or [SENSITIVE!!!! EDITED BY HQ]

etc.

Yawn.

GretchenWiener Sun 06-Jul-14 23:04:48

or my fave

For some reason, I now have a line from this poem going through my head, on account of this thread.

Er, great!

Whenever I see those threads, I always think the announcing of a trigger must be a trigger itself <ponders>

GretchenWiener Mon 07-Jul-14 09:39:01

they are at it again

The one that bugs me... "Aibu to be concerned about this *trigger***"

How is anyone suppsed to know whether it is something that will trigger them (for i accept that it does have its place sometimes) if they dont know whether the thread is about p&c parking, spiders/trypophobia or child abuse.

Or if you have one bad "trigger", should you avoid all threads with the word, just in case? Actually, if people wrote proper fucking titles, there would be no need for trigger warnings at all!

TheFirstOfHerName Tue 08-Jul-14 17:49:26

What if the word 'trigger' is the trigger?

grin at 'head tit'
