"Drama"

It’s definitely a warning sign when I hear someone complain about “drama”. The usage of “drama” is generally to complain about people upsetting the status quo, from their privileged position of not having to worry as much about social considerations.

Consider this distinction:

‘When something awful happens to you or someone you care about: it’s trauma. But when something awful happens to someone about whom you don’t care: it’s drama.’
