Trigger Warnings, Campus Speech, and the Right to Not Be OffendedUnknown - 2014
Feminist and social justice blogs popularized the concept of the "trigger warning," with writers encouraging each other to label posts that might trigger flashbacks to sexual assault or domestic abuse. As the popularity, and scope, of the trigger warning idea grew, some bloggers began listing potential triggers, ranging from rape and violence and suicide to snakes and needles and even "small holes." This video looks at one college student's quest to mandate trigger warnings for all professors on her campus and examines the questions of free speech and academic freedom that arise when such a policy is instituted.
