There’s a sentiment I’ve encountered again lately: Don’t show photographs of dead or injured/traumatized people in the news. Why? Because “showing this doesn’t add anything to the story”, because “showing the dead takes their dignity”, because “children shouldn’t see this.”

While I respect why people would argue like this, I assume most if not all arguments actually originate from a very human desire:

Don’t make me feel uncomfortable.
