Movietriggers.com is a (very new) database of triggers in new and old movies, it even has a page specifically for movies currently in theatres. While there isn’t a lot of info yet, this website would be really great for a lot of people if we all add to it!
Here’s an example of what a movie looks like on the site:
Be sure to check it out and add to it!
bless this. I have been looking for something like this for ever
is this still a thing we’re doing?
WHY WAS THIS NOT IN THE FINAL CUT.
Or even the Special Editions. This is GREAT.
C3PO YOU F*CKER
I have a new favorite Star Wars moment.
I love how the guy who opened the door is just like “it’s too late he was a dick any way no one will miss him I’ll just close this door”
This Common Secret, Susan Wicklund
I remember seeing a video OneThirdGone posted about her group protesting outside a doctor’s home. I rolled my eyes at it and thought of how irritating they were. But after reading about the struggles of Dr. Wicklund and all the harassment she’s endured (and I’m not even halfway through the book yet), anti-choice protestors now make me physically sick.
They barricaded Dr. Wicklund’s home - they brought a mobile home and parked it in front of her driveway, and giant cement-filled barrels blocked the entrance. They stalked her daughter at her school, they posted “Wanted” signs all over their town. They made it nearly impossible for her family to leave their home.
If you think clinic protestors are okay, then I’m going to need you to do some rethinking.
it ok to not be ready
Please spread this shit like wildfire. People go on and sit through the whole experience and they’re uncomfortable because they just want to please their partner and they don’t tell them that they want to stop because they are not ready. It’s okay not to be ready.
notice here that consent is revoked without ever saying no and consent goes so far beyond yes/no!!!!!!
All it does is show me you have a superiority complex and deep rooted classist tendencies. I’ve been a waitress, a barista and a sales associate, so your talking down to others just tells me at one point you would’ve talked down to me. This guy in the queue tried to buy me a coffee today, after ripping into the guy behind the counter about his skills and his job. Don’t care what people do for a living, if you don’t treat ‘em like (very important) people when you deal with them, we can’t be friends.

I don’t understand how people don’t get this
It is terrifying. It means if you don’t adhere to their demands or if you make on little mistake, they can turn on you. I don’t deal with people who are nasty to others.
This map should be included in every history book.
This is why I don’t like the term Native American or even like Indigenous People. It cancels the numerous different groups of people that lived here
Don’t forget this.
The reason that pre-colonized American history is taught in a short breath, in a way that is totally unlike how European history is taught (“yah there were these tribes who lived off the land and were so noble and primitive until Christopher Columbus came and things got interesting” vs. “There were complex cultures and different people in different areas who traded and fought exactly like what was going on across the Atlantic at the time, so for example there were extensive trade routes between A and B in this territory while X and Y made an alliance to unite against Z, and then this important ruler, inventor, artist lived… etc etc etc”) is racism, pure and simple. Anyone who says otherwise (PARTICULARLY if they claim that nothing interesting was going on or try to state that the Americas were purely “primitive” or lesser in some fashion” they are either lying or terribly misinformed.
This is why “Native American” is not a one-size-fits-all banner. This is why you sound just as stupid saying someone was or is “Cherokee or Sioux, or Mohawk or whatever” as you sound saying “They were English, or German, or Irish or whatever”. They are distinct cultures who lived in distinct areas and had disparate histories. And, due to horrendous colonialism and blatant white washing, these are repressed histories.
So do your homework, especially if you live in the Americas and are from a background that at any point contained immigrants (and don’t you look at me and say you’re “Just American” because you can claim somebody on the Mayflower because I will explain you many things). They don’t teach this how they should, so you must educate yourself.
y’know people make fun of Ghibli tears… but I think they aren’t made to portray what they look like on others, but instead how they feel like to us, when WE cry. Doesn’t it always feel much bigger/vision impeding when it happens to us as we experience it?
