>>73 In the course of my work I have worked with quite a few people with sometimes very severe PTSD. I would never seek to belittle their condition. I'm really sorry to her you have experienced trauma in your life.

PTSD is fortunately relatively rare, with specific internationally recognised diagnostic criteria, and it is by no means an invariable consequence of trauma. There is a huge difference between experiencing a flashback, and seeing something in a movie that reminds you of a bad experience in your past which marks you feel sad/uncomfortable. The former is a symptom of a medical condition which requires help, and which should be taken very seriously, the latter is - part of the human condition. I agree with you that the Tumblr kids really seem to mean that they don't want to be exposed to things that might disturb them - they're not entitled to trigger labels to help them with that. Much great art/literature is disturbing, and designedly so. If you need labels to deal with that then the labels aren't the help you need.
