Op-Ed: Trigger warnings won’t help us grow

Kallayan Thuch hoped to graduate college into a world where open discussions could occur spontaneously on a variety of subjects. Instead, she says, people have begun to employ the notion of trigger warnings as a means of censorship. “The truth is that the people who cry trigger at every opportunity also help discredit those who truly do have triggers. Because so many have been ‘triggered’ over ridiculous situations, others have become skeptical or fed up anytime anyone asks for a little sensitivity.” Her opinion piece is on Voicewaves.
