A topic, phrase or word that emotionally sets someone off. Could refer to anger, or reliving a traumatic experience. Sometimes this is logical, other times it seems like an attention grab. It is fairly common for certain communities on, for example, Livejournal to be overly sensitive to people's 'triggers' (often but not always relating to sexual assault)--any mention of violence may be censored.
(1) Man, I know I shouldn't have gone off on Eric that way, but that racist joke he made triggered me big time and I flipped my shit.

(2) I got kicked off that livejournal group for not lj-cutting my post talking about the rape scene in the movie I watched last night. Some girl said it triggered her and the mods were on her side.

1. A term used to describe sensations, images, or experiences that trigger a traumatic memory. Related to Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
1. I was psychologically scarred watching my best friend get shot in the head as a young teen. That scene in the movie where they shot the hostages triggered unpleasant memories, and I felt myself reliving those horrible experiences again.

A strong emotional reaction set off by a set of words or image that reminds a person of a traumatic event. Used often in the Self Injury community to describe something that may cause a person to relapse into a cutting, bullimic, or other self injuring state.
That poem mentions rape and self mutilation. It could trigger.

A specific thing that causes a mentally ill individual's brain to go into a state of hypervigilance. The thing that triggers them makes them feel unsafe and or threatened. Contrary to popular belief, this does not just occur in people with PTSD, though it is much more common in people with PTSD and a type of anxiety disorder.
"He made a couple of rape jokes and I think it triggered me..."
"Yelling is definitely a trigger of mine."

A thing said or done that can make someone uncomfortable for a number of reasons. Triggers can make a situation awkward and sometime scary. You should tell people what triggers you before talking to them to avoid any unwanted conversations and/or arguments. Triggers are meant to help people understand each other and avoid hurting their feelings. If someone is to trigger someone the person should say they are triggered and if their request is ignore should evacuate the conversation. If you are posting something on any social media tag your triggers before you give the triggering information. Ex- #triggerwarningjhere
