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.
Ms Hensley, head of an organisation promoting secular ideas, has suffered from PTSD for more than a year, according to her Twitter account.
In an interview with DailyDot.com, Ms Hensley says she became a target for 'atheist misogynists and men's rights activists' a few years back, following her open status as an atheist and feminist activist.
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.
She claims to be harassed by a cybermob of more than 400 people which led to her diagnosis.
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.

“No, honey, your nuts..”
Nuts, ugly glasses, stupid hair cut and what is with that hat?!! Guess she’ll end up in bed for 6 more months after my comments?! /s
Here we go... remember all of those bully laws states are putting into effect....
Hey toots, it’s nothing compared to what your folks have said to the Palin family.
Leave her nuts out of this.

This is not surprising.
Much of liberalism, at its core, is the fashionable view that the world is filled with oppressed victim classes, and a smaller number of oppressor classes, and that the liberal is a voice in the wilderness bravely crying out for justice.
A component of this psychological disorder of playing the victim and acting the victim (which is sometimes based on reality and sometimes not), and then transferring this unhealthy view of the PERSONAL world to the larger POLITICAL world.
In this case, the “victim” has moved in the opposite direction. First she followed the fashion of liberal victim-baiting, then transferred her perceived victimization of the worlds oppressed classes onto herself personally.
Liberals have a tough time with twitter because they refuse to shut conservative voices down. I’ve been helping a guy with the title “Ban Collectivism” beat back the liberal right wing Hitler fantasy.
She looks ‘possessed’................
Not "possessed"...under medicated.
The eyes say: “I’m plum loco”,
While the rest of her face says: “I’m as crazy as a rat in a tin outhouse during a hail storm.”
So, she gets down and cowers under a table when
ever she hears a computer go on?
Just two words......crazy eyes!
Wait, she’s an atheist and she’s being attacked by
atheists? Oh the horror.
Your Dad was quite clever.
Those are some serious “crazy eyes” she has going on there. Peer into those and you’re not going to find much in the way of sanity I bet.
