How Animal Crossing Triggered a Rape Flashback
This article discusses the theory of flashbacks, which involves a repeating traumatic event in an effort to understand what happened. A flashback is when a person experiences flashbacks. The brain recognizes similarities between the current situation, and the last time that he or she was in danger, then reacts accordingly. This theory suggests that the flashback is a way for the brain to learn how to avoid future situations and to practice life-saving behavior.
Rape is a horrible and distressing experience that becomes part of the victim’s identity. The experience can make a victim feel vulnerable, anxious and scared. These sensations can trigger flashbacks and intense feelings.
