Given that strobe-related sensitivities are only reported as a trigger for less than 2% of the epileptic population and is thought to be the root cause of less than 0.5% of first-incident seizures, I must contest your statement that “flashing in strobe lights is enough to make anyone have a seizure”.
However, I do understand what you are saying. I have deleted the post, despite the fact that it had multiple trigger warning tags on it. Not everyone comes through tumblr, and I do forget that sometimes people who view the front page (or people without tumblr savior - a fantastic browser extension for anyone with strobe-sensitive epilepsy, by the way) do not have automatic tag filtering.
For anyone who’s wondering, the general tag warnings that I use (on new posts - I haven’t gone back through my archives yet) are #nsfw for posts on genitalia and generally sexual topics, and #tw/#flashing gif for posts on very sensitive subjects or annoying images. Granted, I very rarely post either of those, but hey, I may as well put it out there now that they’re always possibilities.
