Lauren Southern’s affectionately named brainchild, #TheTriggering, has been trending all over Twitter and Facebook lately.
Can we start a day called "The Triggering" where everyone just posts "offensive" things on their social media in defense of free speech?

Pretty self explanatory. Yesterday marked the first annual “Triggering” and, well… it “triggered” loads of, you guessed it, spineless millennials with self-diagnosed mental illnesses.
Like most hashtag movements started by 4chan and reddit, #TheTriggering is populated mostly by cis white people.

If you are triggered by anything, avoid #TheTriggering at all costs.
Smug white men actively trying to trigger people. Disgusting

Standing in solidarity with their Twitter brethren, the blogging champions of the left also took it upon themselves to brave a response. Often hindered with crippling social anxiety and/or a lack of communication skills found themselves, when equipped with their weapon of choice, incessant whining… unstoppable. Clearly.
#TheTriggering… is an annual event where racist, sexist and generally horrible men and women decide to be… even more racist, sexist, and horrible on social media. While scrolling through tweets I noticed a trend of women involved in the hashtag going above and beyond to prove that they could be just as “sexist and anti-feminist” as their male counterparts, which was pretty sad seeing as yesterday was International Women’s Day. Clearly these trolls are intentionally looking to piss off as many people as possible, so I guess I won’t take it too personally.
Featured among this cretin’s collection of “most vile tweets” was a quip from yours truly. Here’s a quick look at said offense.
"DEY TOOK OUR JOBS!" "No, we just don't have a position for someone with a gender studies degree." #TheTriggering

Fusion also hopped on the crybaby train and launched full speed ahead.
Bigots on Twitter are organizing #TheTriggering, a new awful hashtag campaign. Imagine if Men’s Rights Activists, Gamergamers, climate-change deniers, and garden variety racists all got together, borrowed a page out of Beyoncé’s book and decided to get in a formation of their own…
It’s almost as if these internet gladiators don’t understand that they are the butt of the joke. Leftist SJW’s just can’t help themselves. They are, after all, the first-responders to online injustices. Because people who study “queer theory” have a lot of spare time on their hands.
No wonder these kids want to do away with the First Amendment.
