Trigger warnings are the newest manifestation of the ongoing pussification of America, and what started as an adorably ill-conceived idea to protect people from trauma has turned into a widespread epidemic of stuffing trigger warnings into blogs, articles, stories, and anywhere else that people feel they can get a few extra points for appearing concerned for their fellow human. Trigger warnings are inherently stupid because everything is a trigger, so you can’t effectively warn anyone because there’s no accuracy, and also because life is a trigger. It’s supposed to be. Bad, awful shit happens to us. We learn to cope and overcome it by dealing with things that remind us of it. We’re supposed to be unexpectedly reminded of things both good and bad to grow as people. Trigger warnings serve to stunt our growth and, more to the point, make us into a whining bunch of pussies.
Speaking of trigger warnings, if racism has the potential to trigger you then don’t bother with the second half of this episode! A discussion about Michael Jackson and race leads into one of the most hilarious bits we’ve ever done: “No Blacks to the Future”! A very racist “Doc White” must travel through time to protect the future from blacks by going into the past to stop their progress in the civil rights movement and ultimately, the civil war! Doc White is a naughty, naughty man in this unexpected sequel and it’s up to Marty McFly to stop his evil plans before he eradicates the blacks for good! This bit is really going to make you laugh, or more likely sit stone-faced as you realize how much you hate us. However, the only way to find out which one of these is true for you is to give it a shot and listen, so click the play button now!
