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.”
As MrcTV adds, the sign provides students with contact information for student counseling services, the Title IX coordinator, student advocacy and prevention, and the national sexual assault hotline
