I wanted to give a heads-up to anyone considering going to see "Watchmen." It's a pretty graphic film with some harsh triggers: Some movie spoilers (marked), rape, implied incestuous intent, sex, porn, nudity, graphic violence, skeletonsCollapse )

I really, really don't recommend this movie. I went in thinking it was just another superhero movie (I hadn't read the graphic novel like the people with me had), but it was way more than I bargained for. I was a mess by the time we left the theater, mostly in an angry-hostile way, but a mess nonetheless.

So yeah... don't let anyone talk you into go seeing it if this kind of thing triggers you.

Discussion of a scene from a movie that was a major trigger for meCollapse )

Do you go out of your way to avoid triggers, just brace yourself, or seek out triggers when you need to let it out? Does your reaction depend on who is around? Can you control it? What happens when something triggers you? Is it just embarrassing, or worse?

I noticed some people have started posting these, and I hope I'm not reiterating anything someone else has posted.

I recently watched The Notorious Betty Page and it was very good, but there were a couple of scenes that were very triggering. It wasn't graphic necessarily, but you got the idea of what was happening...so anyways, just wanted to warn.

Brennan: simple to confound the wise
Hello, everybody.:) I just came from Julianne Moore's new movie, Blindness and wanted to warn you before you set foot in that theater.

Cut will contain triggers regarding rape, as well as spoilers for the movie.Collapse )

Hopefully this is okay for me to post. If not, mods, please let me know and I will promptly hit that delete key. :)

Yeah... I don't recomend anyone watching this movie.  The entire thing is a trigger. =(

Just a heads up...

I have a post to make, not a relatively negative one. Even though I'm sure nothing would be wrong with that. This place is such a wonderful sanctuary for help and comfort. But i have a question. And it may sound incredibly silly. But still.

How many people watch Law and Order SVU and find it (besides wonderfully entertaining) to be a type of therapy for them? Fiction or not, when they find those abusers, and those rapists and those pedophiles, and give them justice. Do you not get such a powerful sense of satisfactory after watching it? I just love that show! I notice alot of survivors watch it.

If this needs a cut for triggers, please let me know :)

no no no, this isnt about the devil or religion or anything. goodness knows theres enough to talk about there, but im not in the mood to be "converted" at the mo
just got thinking about the phrase the other day, and what you lot on here call "trigger[ing]"
thats what this is about, and as you can imagine....it very well is gonna b triggering to some/many of you. please, i dont wanna hurt anyone, so plz, if your easily triggered, b careful and tread lightly?

*hugs* to anyone who actually read the whole thing b/c i dont really expect anyone to.
