Why do people on g@g get "triggered" so easily?

I asked a question about teenage boys and why some of them are immature and so many people were geninely offended. Like people were telling me "fuck you" and "but what about teenage girls tho" and blah blah blah. One guy even reported me for it. Are you kidding me? I even apologized and people were still mad. I found it funny, because people talk about feminists getting triggered but guys can get triggered easily as well. I see it a lot on here. Everyone complains about something, even me.

So, why do you get triggered? Are you triggered easily? Does it annoy you at how easily someone, man or woman, gets offended these days?

  • I think every group has trigger words - What triggers me, loaded questions - Most of the time I just detour around a debacle if I see a big you said/I said opinion stream.

    • seriously though did you hear about that story. He pulled the trigger got scared then he had to go back to his safe space for a good cry?

      Sometimes I can't even. . .

      I just think I need a greencard, I'll swap places with that guy

  • It's because you were being unreasonable so people are conna complain. Not necessarily "triggered". I think reporting you is taking it too far though. Nobody should be reported for saying something you disagree with.

    • I am sorry.
      It was teenage boys who were bullying that girl so that is why I asked, for insight on if you were immature as a teenager or if you are a teen boy yourself. Instead people bitched and moaned.

    • That's because the majority of teen boys aren't like that. You're not gonna get much insight.

    • A lot of them in my school pick on people. Some guy at school just today called me a dumbass for zoning out in gym class and not catching a ball.

  • It's not just GaG it's everywhere on the internet lol, don't mind them.

  • It seems that being "triggered" is being misused a defense against any criticism or disagreement.

    Omg, he/she didn't like my answer, I must have triggered them! The issue with words like this being adopted on a massive scale is that idiots acquire them and it stifles discourse. People can't have an honest conversation with themselves or others because there is word justifying them in some way.

    Are some people immature? Sure. Were they "triggered"? Possibly. Two years ago, they werent triggered, they just disagreed and you actually had to reflect on what you said.

  • I wish we could retire the word "triggered." This is real life. Not everyone agrees on everything, and we all just have to deal with that. With precious few exceptions, no one should be getting "triggered" by much of anything. Agree to disagree, or take a swing at someone if you're that offended. It's worked that way for a long time, but the last 5-10 years we somehow decided that simply hearing a differing opinion amounts to some kind of assault. I'm a pretty liberal guy, I know it's usually Trump voters you hear with this spiel, but I'm just a guy who, while still being socially progressive, thinks the world has a whole lot of toughening up to do.

  • It sucks because they might be so pissed that they don't give you the reason or want to solve the issue and just ignore you or block you lol

  • Because it's GAG, most people here have never had their ideas challenged cause they make little contact with people in the real world.
    This kind of site attracts these kind of people, because they're free to say whatever they want without facing any consequences. It's what happens all over the Internet, really.

    Bitterness is very present around GAG, plus, those who get offended, do so for a reason. Having a stranger online tell you what you don't want to admit to yourself can be quite difficult for some.
