A word of warning to liberals. Maybe you should turn off your computer and find a nice corner to curl up and suck your thumb. Presenting your foolish opinions to public ridicule online can give you PTSD:
A Washington woman has come under fire over claims her PTSD caused by online harassment and Twitter trolls is equal to that of military veterans.
Melody Hensley was diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder 16 months ago following online abuse, which she says is the result of her being an outspoken feminist and atheist.
She caused upset to many military veterans and their families and friends when she claimed her PTSD from Twitter trolls was as bad as mental anguish suffered by those who do active duty.
The vets and their families forget that a moonbat’s anguish is magnified many times by prodigious self-pity and a total absence of self-respect.
Ms Hensley, head of an organisation promoting secular [i.e., liberal] ideas, has suffered from PTSD for more than a year, according to her Twitter account.
Here is how online fiends crippled her:
One man in particular has waged a two-year hate campaign against her by publishing her tweets using Storify, others have cut-and-pasted her tweets into YouTube videos, belittling her claims of PTSD.
Sounds fun. But look how serious her condition is:
On her Twitter feed Ms Hensley outlines her history of PTSD in several posts, saying she was bedridden for the first six months following her diagnosis, and that she has been so distressed about the online hatred she fears leaving her house unaccompanied.
But Melody can look on the bright side. Even if she can’t get out of bed, “she remains active on Twitter.” No doubt after hearing how terribly she has suffered, no one would ever think of making fun of her again. But just in case, maybe she can inspire legislation to silence the “bullies” who disagree with her. She might quit her work-from-home job and have us pay her to lay in bed tweeting; she must qualify for disability. Or she could sue her detractors for everything they have, and live a life of luxury.
