Trigger Warnings (Education)
This is the first article I’ve read on trigger warnings that understands them the way I do. It’s not an excuse, it’s not a way of avoiding difficult topics, but rather it’s a head’s up that there’s something you might need to prepare for. Consider it the difference between someone yelling duck just as a ball bounces off your head or saying “Keep an eye out. There’s a soccer game over there with new players.” Anyway, the article does a really good job of defining both the purpose and ways that the warnings assist education rather than the misunderstandings that would prevent education.
