THE AMERICAN GOVERNMENT LOST JFK’S BRAIN. HOW DO YOU LOSE TRACK OF A HUMAN BRAIN, ESPECIALLY ONE BELONGING TO A PRESIDENT?
Fact: You can’t teach sociology without making people uncomfortable. The entire venture is designed to make people question the ideas they’re taught in everyday life, about supposedly “natural” behavior, supposedly “normal” social organization, supposedly “self-evident” truth. Sociology consists of yanking those out, sometimes quite forcefully. It also consists of teaching people that their emotions are social creatures, learned, normalized, adjusted for the demands of social organization, not internal reactions. It consists of making them realize that their opinions are not their own. If they could opt out of whatever upsets them, we can just abandon all efforts.
A trigger isnt something that makes someone uncomfortable, its something that triggers an anxiety or panic attack or other extreme psychological distress, as a result of trauma. Im a little concerned at your integrity as a sociologist if you cant even do some light research before trying to post an opinion on the matter. Posturing as an authority/voice of reason doesnt make you one.

In Poland, a photographer found a group of cats and dogs hanging out together in the leaves. Apparently, no one told them that dogs and cats are enemies.:)
