✪✪✪ The Illusion Of Safety
Thrice - To Be Everywhere Is To Be Nowhere (2016) (Full Album/High Quality)
It is an impossible debate. There is too much history lurking beneath the skin of too many people. Few are willing to consider the possibility that trigger warnings might be ineffective, impractical and necessary for creating safe spaces all at once. There is no standard for trigger warnings, no universal guidelines. Once you start, where do you stop? Does the mention of the word rape require a trigger warning or is the threshold an account of a rape? How graphic does an account of abuse need to be before meriting a warning? Are trigger warnings required anytime matters of difference are broached? What is graphic? Who makes these determinations? It all seems so futile, so impotent and, at times, belittling.
Trigger warnings also, when used in excess, start to feel like censorship. They suggest that there are experiences or perspectives too inappropriate, too explicit, too bare to be voiced publicly. I do not understand the unspoken rules of trigger warnings. I cannot write the way I want to write and consider using trigger warnings. After a while, I would second guess myself, temper the intensity of what I have to say. There is also this: maybe trigger warnings allow people to avoid learning how to deal with triggers, getting help. I say this with the understanding that having access to professional resources for getting help is a privilege.
I say this with the understanding that sometimes there is not enough help in the world. That said, there is value in learning, where possible, how to deal with and respond to the triggers that cut you open, the triggers that put you back in terrible places, that remind you of painful history. It is untenable to go through life as an exposed wound. No matter how well intended, trigger warnings will not staunch the bleeding; trigger warnings will not harden into scabs over your wounds. I wish I did. I am not brave. I simply know what to be scared of; I know to be scared of everything. There is freedom in that. That freedom makes it easier to appear fearless—to say and do what I want. I have been broken, so I am prepared should that happen again.
I have, at times, put myself in dangerous situations. I have thought, you have no idea what I can take. This idea of unknown depths of endurance is a refrain in most of my writing. Human endurance fascinates me, probably too much. Intellectually, I understand why trigger warnings are necessary for some people. I understand that painful experiences are all too often threatening to break the skin. Seeing or feeling yourself come apart is terrifying.
This exemplifies two types of common fallacies. She states that the government has even tried to place censorships on technology and the media which has not worked. Cheswick again was inspired by McMurphy and act like a child complaining for cigarettes; the scene is confusing with a conversation devolving into a clutter of arguments. As she elaborates on her idea of how women should be displayed she refers to a book called The Body Project, an intimate history of girls by Joan Jacobs Brumberg to gain credibility and build up her argument, that way the audience will realize that there is a problem that is occurring.
Lipkin also uses rhetorical strategies that are blended together to support her evidence the strategies used are ethos, pathos, and. In addition to using examples of the Constitution, she used quotes from political figures and the Declaration of Independence, which discuss human rights, but then questions why women would not be included. Her intention behind this speech was to prove that there is an injustice in not allowing women to vote and arresting them for voting. Susan B. Anthony executes this speech using logical, emotional, and ethical appeals towards the audience.
Logos is presented in various ways such as statistics or even just logical thinking. Pollitt is informing us that it is clear that we all seen men and women who do not follow such criteria. At first, the author, explains the notion that marriage and procreation do not necessarily go hand-in- hand. And later, she carefully interprets the true meaning of marriage; by stating there is a separation of church and state.
Most importantly, the author speaks to her audience in a clear and logical manner; without adding personal biases. Although the essay may seem to have deterministic view on social behavior. Her establishment of the organization guided the futures of women of this time as well as their posterity. This accomplishment demonstrates her passionate nature of taking initiative and role as a leader in history. I think this has helped me actually realize the consequences and allow myself to feel even strong about relationships with others then I did before this week.
