When this original story broke one of the loudest women screaming teh "triggering" argument was a female developer who made hyper violent FPS war games. I will refrain from naming names for obvious reasons.

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.

I was going to post the same thing.

Plus, though not as strong as the first point, it's been decades since someone was sent to war without some form of consent. Obviously some people have little choice due to their social/economic situation, but no one falls asleep and wakes up in the middle of a war, or accepts a ride home from a good friend and ends up in Syria with a gun in his/her hand.
