Trigger warnings? No thanks.

I have been told by certain individuals that I need trigger warnings on my network of Websites, because certain individuals might be sensitive to the topics I write about. My answer to that is “No.” Because, apparently, this is how it works in America: “Sticks and stones may break your bones, but words will fuck you up so badly that you won’t be able to function for the rest of your miserable existence, which is only miserable because you are SO easily offended and paranoid, insomuch as to essentially excommunicate the author of said words from society on the grounds of him being SUCH an asshole.” Sorry, I don’t placate people. I will not change my writing simply because women who have been raped might have a traumatic episode after reading my characters. End of story.
