    Default Have you avoided reading a thread because it had a "trigger warning" in the title?

    I was just wondering, because I suspect it's pretty much like the whole driving past a car crash thing, where people can't help but look if it is in front of them you know?

    So have you avoided reading a thread because it had a "trigger warning" in the title?

    Yeah, I won't read anything with a trigger warning/distressing referencing children being harmed. Even reading the title sometimes makes me feel ill if there's any details in the title.

    Yep, there are certain titles that I stay away from as I know it'll be too distressing. You can't unread something and there are some things that I'm truly mentally better off not knowing.

    No, because nothing "triggers," me.

    No.

    but I haven't had any awful personal life experiences (eg. sexual assault) that might be triggered, I guess.
