History[edit | edit source]

The term outertraumagenic along with the term outertrauma was coined on August 18th, 2021, by thenelsonsystem#0156 on Discord. It was coined after a headmate of theirs with this origin came into contact with another headmate who had the same experience with no term to describe it.

Flag[edit | edit source]

The outertraumagenic flag has no confirmed meaning besides the extinguisher icon, which was inspired by the fire icon on the exotraumagenic flag. It resembles a system, subsystem, or headmate being formed to help cope with, 'extinguish', or in response to another's trauma.
