This blog is a potentially triggering space.  Below, I’m going to list specific triggers that come up over and over on my blog.  If a common trigger comes up that’s not on this list, I’ll warn for it in that specific post.

 

TRIGGER WARNING FOR:  transphobia, cissexism, homophobia, heterosexism, racism, classism, ableism, sizeism, colonialism, violence (especially racist, homophobic, and transphobic violence), medical abuse, child abuse, domestic abuse, sexual assault, slurs.

 

If you’re ever triggered by something on my blog, I am so sorry.  That is awful.  Here is what I watch when I am triggered.  (It is a very silly video of university-aged Stephen Fry saying pun after pun.) Please, if you feel comfortable, either leave a comment or email me and I will warn for your particular trigger in the future, even if it’s totally uncommon and specific to you.  I understand; some of my triggers are unique and inexplicable as well, but they’re still triggers and horrible!  If you’re going to be in this space regularly, I value your health and safety and I want to make this space as safe and healthful as I can for you.

    I’ve become an enormous fan of your blog for your ability to express such love and tenderness for the spectrum of human experience while also addressing cultural attitudes that need changing with directness and without rancor. You have a real gift for writing and I feel lucky that I found your words.

    Thank you.
