jQuery( jsObject ).trigger() executes object methods

var myobject = {

someStuff : function(){ console.log('method someStuff'); }



trigger('someStuff') causes execution of myobject 'someStuff' method.

I don't know what to think about it - for me it is a bug.

I tried to implement non-DOM custom events using bind & trigger. after giving one of events and one of object methods same name i've noticed this strange behaviour.

Does jQuery doesn't provide mechanism for creating custom non-DOM events?

Using triggerHandler() fix this behaviour.
