Book: Colonel Baker’s Monstrous Regiment: A Tale of Female Husbandry — By Rose Collins
Synopsis:In an England devastated by the terrible losses of World War I, Colonel Victor Barker was a rare man indeed. Dashing, well-respected, with impeccable manners, he was a model gentleman. His wife was proud of his good breeding and fine looks, and his young son worshiped him as a war hero. But beneath the army uniform Barker hid an astounding secret. In 1929, following a sensational trial, the good colonel was sentenced to nine months’ imprisonment. For Colonel Barker was, in fact, a woman. Her real name was Valerie Lilias Arkell-Smith, the most infamous man-woman” of them all. Among Rose Collis’ books are A Trouser-Wearing Character, K.D. Lang, and The Mammoth Book of Lesbian Erotica. …Shrink
Barker. It’s BARKER, not Baker. It’s correct in the bold but not anywhere else, but it’s there in the caption and the actual title of the book linked at the end if you click through.
Not that it’s a personal pet peeve or anything.
A trigger isn’t something that makes you uncomfortable it’s something like a song or a smell that literally triggers PTSD from experiencing a horrific or traumatizing event so please don’t mix that up
Triggers: Rape, violence, gore, abuse
Not triggers: Fart jokes, kittens, pancakes, characters kissing and holding hands, the color blue, a man asking a woman on a date
This really isn’t true, a trigger can be anything. Oftentimes it’s something that seems innocuous that just happened to be present when the trauma occurred.
That said, it’s really difficult to warn meaningfully for things like that (unless you happen to personally know it’s a trigger for someone who’s likely to want to read your stuff). And also many, many people do misuse it to mean “thing that grosses me out”; fandom has always had a word for that - “squick” - and you are allowed to have squicks and not want to encounter them, but that doesn’t make them triggers.
But let’s not go so far in the other direction that we claim these things can never be triggers.
I took a bunch of random inane caps so they’re under a cut this time, to spare everyone.
