A good majority of Tumblr users are women.

But who's to say this app is just for women? A lot of times when the abuse is the other way around, the man has no proof and therefore the abusive girlfriend is automatically believed and the cycle continues. This app can help him gather proof if he decided he needed legal support. (This can also apply to same sex couples with an abusive partner)

Same could go for a minor with abusive parents. Since there's a good chance that the parents don't know jack shit about phones or computers. Much less Tumblr. This would give them an advantage as well.

There are too many naive people in the world. There are far worse things happening to lots of people every single day

I'm sure that somewhere at this very moment a young girl is getting sold into slavery by her parents, a child is being left to die, and some deranged weirdo is eating the dead flesh of a human being that they murdered

So because worse things exist, we shouldn't care about other things. Is that what you're saying?

Not that they shouldn't care. But too many people these days amplify their own emotions to where they feel it's comparable to the atrocities like the ones listed in the previous comment. Or like in this case, seeing a dead body in a video in a non-shock/horror related context. Which should, in theory, lessen the emotional reaction due to (1) These people in the video are strangers so the viewer is still able to feel empathy but not the same grief that the family feels and (2) the viewer of the video is just that; watching a video and not actually there living the moment. And yet feel the need to say they're disgusted or scarred by watching the video. When it's just data on a screen to their perspective and, if they don't like being unsettled, then they can turn it off and will inevitably go about their lives without trying to paint themselves as being somehow damaged in some way.

I find it silly.
How people behaved when there was none of this triggery bullthing going on?

Avoiding the problem doesn't actually solve it.

The hell is a trigger warning.

A term that tumblr has twisted to the point that it makes light of actual rape victims

"Trigger" is a psychological term relating to things that horribly reminds victims of severe trauma, while a lot of people from tumblr use it for things that bother or offend them

It's basically an allergy warning for your brain. Just like some people are allergic to peanuts, other people are 'triggered' by certain things like abusive relationships, mentions of rape, blood, or even cartoon character eyes (it's called scopophobia, it's apparently a real thing, I won't judge anyone who has it). I have a crippling phobia (not gonna say of what), and have had panic attacks / nightmares related to it, so I block posts on tumblr containing it. The OP in this image didn't do a good job trigger warning because they didn't say what it's a trigger warning of. It's like labelling something "ALLERGY WARNING" without saying what's in it that can trigger an allergic reaction.
