    Default Triggered Students Want a Building Renamed Because It's Called Lynch Memorial Hall

    Triggered Students Want a Building Renamed Because It's Called Lynch Memorial Hall
    Lebanon Valley College building is named after Dr. Clyde Lynch.

    Activist students at Lebanon Valley College are making many of the same demands as protesters around the country, but they have also raised a novel concern: they want an academic building, the Lynch Memorial Hall, renamed.

    The facility is named after Dr. Clyde Lynch, who was president of the Pennsylvania college from 1932 to 1950. But students say the word “lynch” has negative racial connotations and is upsetting to black students.

    In a sense, they are right. But the building isn’t named after “lynch” the verb, but rather “Lynch” the man. It seems fairly ridiculous to expect that a great many people—or even a few people—can’t tell the difference. Nevertheless,

    I guess George Lynch should change his name? I mean he's only been using it his whole life and it's his legal identity. Wouldn't want to offend a 20 yr. old somewhere.

    Well this is all new to me. Gotta start paying more attention to the world around me.




    Trigger

    About

    “Trigger” is a term referring to any stimulus that evokes the memory of a traumatic event or episode. While the word is most commonly used in the context of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), it has been since adopted by those in the social justice blogosphere to refer to any topical issue that is deemed contentious or debatable, and to a lesser extent, the term has been also re-appropriated as an ironic term used by their detractors to criticize certain issues that may be seen as too trivial or irrelevant to discuss in length.

    Origin

    The word originated from the psychological phrase “trauma trigger,”[1] or something that causes a traumatic past event to come back into memory. The concept of triggering was initially formulated in 1918 in relation to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD),[2] a disorder that can develop after a person is exposed to one or more traumatic events, indicated by recurring distressing flashbacks.[10] According to BuzzFeed,[10] the first mentions of triggering and “trigger warnings” were posted to feminist message boards discussing sexual assault in the late 1990s.

    I have family members I must kill now.

    I work in the mental health field and triggers are sooooo overused now. Had a client wanted me to park at the back of his building so he wouldn't get "triggered" seeing the liquor store across the street. Yet, he had no problem walking right past that store to get to the hospital when seeking drugs...

    I guess John Lynch, the all-pro safety for the Bucs and Broncos ought to change his name too. Or how about Marshawn Lynch? Hell, he's black - his own last name ought to offend him!

    SMFH at this nonsense...

    EDIT: Just read the article from the link. Someone beat me to the John Lynch line of thought...

    I pray for when these students want to rename anything with the first name of Dick.

    Lesbians might find it offensive or it might trigger gay guys to get hard

    Wouldn't you need to be the victim of a lynching to have triggered by something... and wouldn't you be dead?

    Trigger words & being outraged, are the most happening trends!

    Being offended is the new Facebook.
