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?

Yes, Threads when children are harmed purposely have an imense impact on me and usually sticks with me quite some time after

No, I get curious!

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.

I guess nothing really 'triggers' me but at the same time there are things i know i shouldnt read or regret reading even after ive been warned, but im so curious! lol.

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