Want to watch some strangers on the Internet play video games, but worried they might say something mildly upsetting? Fear not! Game Grumps Triggers will let you know when to cover your eyes and ears!

The blog's moderators methodically comb through videos from the popular Let's Play group Game Grumps for offensive content and issue trigger warnings for anything that could potentially distress the fragile flowers of Tumblr. They're so thorough they even put warnings for warnings!

Now, the Game Grumps aren't bad people, they're "still unlearning a lot of toxic and harmful mindsets." As you strive to become a paragon of social justice, here are some big no-no's you should avoid:

Please note that suggesting that people who go into convulsions at the sight of a gingerbread house should seek help is problematic, because it implies they have a problem that needs "fixing" (well, yeah). Just stay in your trigger-free bubble and avoid facing your issues forever, folks; surely everything will work out fine!
