lololol Oh my God, you’re so funny. Making fun of people who have PTSD is hilarious, isn’t it? I bet you love to go around and shout out graphic depictions of rape so that all of the rape victims with PTSD have flashbacks or hallucinations. I bet you love to go into group therapy sessions for veterans and make loud noises that sounds like gunshots too. lololol You seem like such a hilarious person. 

(For anyone who has a disability that prevents them from recognizing sarcasm, the paragraph I wrote is sarcastic as the asker is purposely trying to antagonize me and make people with PTSD feel ashamed for having PTSD.)

please don’t fucking compare the fake bullshit you tumblr people call ptsd to what real veterans have as ptsd…. now I will repeat myself, the word inter triggers me, by not removing it you are being cis scum.

Based on your lack of knowledge about PTSD and lack of empathy for people who suffer from PTSD, I’m going to go ahead and assume that you do not have PTSD. So perhaps you should take this opportunity to stop talking about things you know absolutely nothing about. 

If you actually did know anything about PTSD, you would know that there are a variety of situations that can cause the disorder. Basically, any situation that puts a person’s life or bodily integrity in extreme danger can cause PTSD. 

Do you know how I know so much about PTSD? Because I have C-PTSD. I’ve been diagnosed as having C-PTSD by a general practitioner, a psychiatrist, and a psychologist. Over the past year and a half I’ve seen a PTSD specialist every Friday and undergone exposure therapy, EDMR, and general anxiety management therapy. 

When my PTSD was at it’s worst I was in a constant state of intrusive thoughts, I experienced violent flashbacks dailies, I hallucinated every time I left the house due to my extreme fear of other people, I was in a constant state of hypervigilance, I would consistently go back and forth between insomnia and hypersomnia (I would either sleep between 2 and 4 hours a night, or sleep between 12 and 16 hours), I became deeply depressed and tried to commit suicide, and I would have over a dozen panic attacks every day. 

But you know, experiencing the majority of symptoms associated with the disorder, being diagnosed by three medical professionals, being prescribed medication for my disorder (20mg Cipralex), and being treated every week for over a year and a half by a PTSD specialist who has his PhD in psychology and 18 years of experience treating people with PTSD (mostly rape victims, car crash victims, and veterans) is totally just “Tumblr PTSD”.

"I’ve always been interested in the way white supremacy narrativizes the world because think about if white people shut the fuck up for one day. No, I mean, I’m always thinking about it, who the fuck is louder than white folks? Jesus, it’s all we talk about. No, for real, turn on the news and it’s like ‘white, white, white, white, white.’"

"What do I want instead of a Strong Female Character? I want a male:female character ratio of 1:1 instead of 3:1 on our screens. I want a wealth of complex female protagonists who can be either strong or weak or both or neither, because they are more than strength or weakness. Badass gunslingers and martial artists sure, but also interesting women who are shy and quiet and do, sometimes, put up with others’ shit because in real life there’s often no practical alternative. And besides heroines, I want to see women in as many and varied secondary and character roles as men: female sidekicks, mentors, comic relief, rivals, villains. I want not to be asked, when I try to sell a book about two girls, two boys and a genderless robot, if we couldn’t change one of those girls to a boy."
