Triggered

Men are triggered by Prince Harry like women are triggered by Liz Bruenig. The intensity of the emotional investment in both is incommensurate with their utter unimportance. They are just people expressing opinions, yet my Twitter feed is littered by people going off their nut about them. In both cases, what drives people crazy is that both claim to be happily married in a model that people just can’t accept.

One thought on “Triggered”

  1. With Prince Harry, it’s at least partially explained by the fact that anything to do with the British royal family seems to generate strong opinions. Bruenig derangement syndrome is a bit more mysterious.
