Guys, I do not want to get political. But I am seeing people on my flist, people I otherwise like and admire, who are still confusing squicks with triggers, and who still think that warning for sexual violence is a slippery slope to warnings for the misuse of radishes, or garish colours, or descriptions of morris dancing.

Please, please, if you aren't confident that you know the difference between squicks and triggers, go and read this essay by [livejournal.com profile] impertinence. It's concise, educational, rational and calm. It's also a hard read, as most mental adjustments worth making are.

[livejournal.com profile] impertinence requested that the following be pasted anywhere her essay is linked:

Warning: Very explicit discussion of sexual assault and the nature, anatomy, cause & effect of triggers. Is itself triggery.
