It was inevitable. With much of the debate over the past year focusing on Social Justice Warriors, “safe spaces”, and – most notably – “trigger warnings,” moments ago the first such caution emerged when Hofstra University- the venue of tonight’s historic debate – posted a “trigger warning” sign to warn students about the potentially disturbing content that may be discussed during Monday night’s presidential debate.
According to CBS New York reporter Tony Aiello, a sign inside of the student center at Hofstra reads, “Trigger warning: The event conducted just beyond this sign may contain triggering and/or sensitive material. Sexual violence, sexual assault, and abuse are some topics mentioned within this event. If you feel triggered, please know there are resources to help you.”
