    Certainly, RKBA diaries should post a trigger warning for all those who have been harmed by gun violence.

    Diaries about the housing crisis, banks, big corporations - all these should post trigger warnings, as there are some Kossacks who have been badly abused by unscrupulous lenders, foreclosed on illegally, have had to declare bankruptcy, etc. These diaries might be very painful to them.

    Diaries about the military - definite trigger warning - there are many Kossacks who find these painful, due to having been abused by commanding officers, discriminated against, etc.

    The pooties diaries should post a trigger warning, for all those who might have been bitten by a dog or cat. Pictures of such may be alarming to them.

    In fact, let's just make your quote above a requirement for all diaires:

    Note: some content or discussion in this diary may trigger those who have been abused by __ (fill in subject of your diary). If you are sensitive to discussions of ___, you may want to move on to another diary.

        I would hope that Kossacks are mature and level-headed enough to have a discussion on controversial topics without having to give trigger warnings that the topic might be sensitive and is therefore to be avoided.

        As a Navy veteran, the military is a topic that provokes strong emotions in me.  The racism, misogyny, waste/fraud/abuse, nasty sense of entitlement among incompetent naval academy graduates and the revolving door between the military and beltway bandits burns my ass.

        But, the sacrifice, genuine service, sense of duty and genuine desire to see our country do what is right, especially among military families such as seen in angelajean's and the IGTNT diaries also brings me to tears.

        However, I would take it as unnecessary and condescending to have a trigger warning for every military related diary. If religion is "trigger-worthy", then just about any topic is.  Or not.
