I understand that the video is supposed to be shocking (and believe me, it is) but trigger warnings can help to warn people who might otherwise not be psychological up to viewing such material to wait until they feel they can handle it.
@equivamp, I understand what a trigger is. I must have misread what you wrote. I agree that a trigger warning should have been used on the ‘Silent Scream’ video because of the domestic violence and other situations. I hope I didn’t come across as ignorant. If I did, I’ve very sorry I misinterpreted what you meant. My apologies.
@nomeatnodairynopro1em and @keepthefaith This is not about not wanting to see unpleasnt things. Do you know what a trigger is? Being triggered can set survivors back YEARS on the road to recovery. Plus, if somebody is triggered by something, what chance do you think they’ll have of actually responding in the desired way to the video? They’re far more likely to view it, and the company that exposed them to it, as something to be avoided and the message will be lost.
It’s not about the videos that show conditions of farm animals, lab animals etc. It’s about the content in the ‘Silent Scream’ video – it shows abuse and domestic violence towards humans which can upset people who’ve experienced those things. It’s a great video but could definitely do with a trigger warning.
