The Internet is like an insane asylum

Many people on the Internet would love to go back to a time when people with mental illnesses were locked up in insane asylums or displayed in freak shows prior to psychiatrists theorizing and coining terms. I'm talking about mental illness in general, whether you're born with one or got one over time like PTSD, autism, schizophrenia or Alzheimer's Disease.

I mean, yeah, many people with problems get to hse the internet and get away scot-free with horrible things, or more functional people get more opportunities to get stressed real quick. But that needs treatment, not incarceration(that's an english word right?).

I honestly have no freaking idea what you just implied? Please clarify, I am not sure if I should be very, very offended or not.

>People would love to go back to the time of insane asylums

>Me seeing a lot of people that actually help and want to help people be stable, but requires cooperation and follow up

>Also I am a person of a mental illness and I don't act a complete lunatic thanks to finding good people to learn from and understand things better.

I don't understand what you are saying tbh. Like I want to see some people really improve and really be generally nice people, but some people really don't cooperate no matter what approach you go about it. Which kind of upsets me really, but I understand that's how people work.

People on the internet compare anything terrible to autism like ones saying Mighty No. is making autistic screams for being a failure or using words like Triggered as an insult when trigger a serious problem for people with PTSD.

I know not everyone thinks this but I can't say those who do are in the minority anymore thanks to bigots getting mainstream attention.

On the Mighty No. 9, I legitimately never heard anyone use "Autistic screams" for it when describing a bad game. Triggered on the other hand I know is an issue, because of that and more.

I just personally don't see how those connect with people "thinking/saying" locking people with a mental illness up though? I see it more like people need to read a dictionary and use better words.

I have PTSD and even I make triggered jokes. Because that's all it is, a joke.
Maybe it's just because I have a dark sense of humor, but jokes about stuff like that really don't bother me in the slightest, and a lot of them happen to be related to things I have or are.

Obviously certain things shouldn't be said around certain people, and that's perfectly fine, but just because someone makes a controversial joke doesn't mean that they're a "bigot".

I think the reason "triggered" is used as a joke is because of how it became stereotyped as overused among SJWs.

A lot of people don't even use it properly. Like, what exactly has been triggered? Anger, sadness, etc.?

I think triggered should always refer to PTSD, like the "shell shock" kind. When hearing or seeing a particularly thing will always remind you of bad memories - that kind of thing. The kind that is irreversible and uncontrollable.

Meanwhile, nowadays, "triggered" is so normalized that it can be said whenever there's something someone doesn't disagree with. Like we're completely disregarding people who have been in wars and seen things that really can't be unseen and will haunt them for the rest of their lives.

That's how I remember first hearing about "being triggered", and that is how I believe it should be used. For people who have gone through Hell and will never forget what happened.

the word "triggered" has become such a joke that whenever i hear it being used in an un-ironic sense, as in my college professor wanting people to write down what "triggeres" them, i can't help but roll my eyes and huff.


there are legit "triggers" like seeing a war movie might give a WW2 veteran flashbacks of being in WW2, and then there are people who abuse it. Hearing the word "trump" isnt going to make you angry, honey. getting offended is a choice, made by YOU. YOU choose to get angry to the point where you feel inclined to break public property.


just my two cents lol~

Many other mental illnesses have triggers also, like anxiety and ocd. Seeing sjws and anti-sjws alike using the term "triggered" as a joke or for simple things they disagree with really takes away from how serious a term it is for mental illness.

Anxiety and OCD I can also understand, it's just that I more commonly associate it with PTSD. Either way, it's quite serious, and shouldn't be talked about so lightly. I'm sure these SJWs wouldn't like to know what it is really like to have PTSD, anxiety, etc..

So, instead of using "triggered", I can use "salty"? Doesn't seem to be ofensive, unless someone has a trauma regarding salt or something.

Salty is a far better word for those situations, yes, IMO.
