    It means I reserve the right to think about what you just said and see if it offends me now, or later after I've had time to think about it.

    One can be triggered by either a "micro" or "macro" aggression. :grad:

    It's when you put your finger on the trigger of your gun whenever a millennial approaches you.

    Isn't it something that the Social Justice Warriors go on about when they come across something that gives them the sads?

    The term was originally used in regards to veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. For example, fireworks on the fourth of July could "trigger" someone struggling with PTSD, and make them feel like they're back on the battlefield.

    However, the term has been co-opted in recent years by liberals to describe pretty much anything they don't like. A few weeks ago, feminists petitioned against this X-Men movie poster because they felt it was "triggering" to women who have been in abusive relationships.

    The evolution of the term has resulted in left-wing websites like The Huffington Post issuing "trigger warnings" before their articles.

    So, if they were doing a story about some sort of hate group, they will include a trigger warning at the top which says, "Trigger warning: Racism, homophobia, bigotry, sexism," etc.

    Triggering occurs when any certain something (a “trigger”) causes a negative emotional response. The emotional response can be fear, sadness, panic, flashbacks, and pain, as well as any physical symptoms associated with these emotions (shaking, loss of appetite, fainting, fatigue, and so on).
