1.) *popular and well known definition* triggered is when someone gets offended or gets their feelings hurt, often used in memes to describe feminist, or people with strong victimization. (the use of this word through social media is generally ableist.)

2.) *actaul definition of triggered* trigger is something that sets off a memory tape or flashback transporting the person back to the event of her/his original trauma.
trauma in the form of flashbacks or overwhelming feelings of sadness, anxiety, or panic. The brain forms a connection between a trigger and the feelings with which it is associated, and some triggers are quite innocuous. For example, a person who smelled incense while being raped might have a panic attack when he or she smells incense in a store. Triggers are very personal, and generally people with severe PTSD or/and anxiety can be triggered by everyday things.
1.) lol this 'feminazi' is sooo triggered cus I told her to make me a sandwich!! Lol😂😂

2.) *man who fought in the Iraq war comes back on 4th of July*

"Glad to be home."

*fireworks goes off and the man suddenly has a panic attack, cannot breath and is suffocating on the floor*

*in the hospital*

"Sir, it is apparent that the due to very traumatic events you experienced in the war, you have severe PTSD. And we believed that fireworks triggered you to have a panic attack. I'm sorry sir."
