Elevators should come with trigger warnings

Loud voices should come with trigger warnings

Red Starbucks cups should come with trigger warnings

Red stains on bed sheets should come with trigger warnings

Christmas lights should come with trigger warnings

Parks at night should come with trigger warning

Tequila and the smell of alcohol should come with trigger warnings

Some white men should come with trigger warnings

Large mirrors should come with trigger warnings

TVs flickering should come with trigger warnings

The sound of heavy rain should come with trigger warnings

People getting too close to me should come with trigger warnings

Hallways should come with trigger warnings

Nietzsche should come with a trigger warning

The word rape should come with a trigger warning

Seeing my rapist everyday should come with a trigger warning
