I politely pointed out that her own career was based on creating games that trigger PTSD in war veterans and she didn't seem to have a problem with that. I mean, PTSD is PTSD and triggering is triggering.
Why would a war veteran with PTSD issues play a violent, war-themed FPS game in the first place? Doesn't the possibility of aggravating that condition kind of come with the territory?
I think you "checked out of the argument mentally" before it even started, friend.
