A quick mod note:

I want to make sure it is clearly stated again:

If you are triggered by something, it is okay to ask that triggering thing (whether it be text, icon, or other) be removed.

If you are asked to put something triggering out of the obvious view, you are expected to do so. Just as your triggers are protected, as are those of others.

Please, understand - in a community of survivors, there is rarely an opportunity to ask that a triggering thing be removed that is *not* when someone is emotionally vulnerable. It is difficult to ask someone to remove or hide something triggering. As long as you do it respectfully and as tactfully as you can, you are welcomed to do so.

As a community, we are expected to handle these requests how we would expect our requests to be handled - with respect, understanding, and knowledge of how difficult it is to make a request when you know someone is emotionally vulnerable. Lectures, attacks, and assumptions of someone's intent are inappropriate responses. If you don't have something nice to say, don't say it.

We are a community of diverse people with diverse triggers. I expect every trigger, even if it's a phobia of clowns, to be treated with respect.

Thank you.
