In America you can become famous and make money by literally saying the most idiotic things possible. That’s kind of why we started this blog. There is just a never ending supply of dingleberries out there who just can’t stop finding ways to make themselves look like complete nudniks. Without these people we would have nothing to write about, so in a way I’m kind of happy these morons exist.
No one epitomizes this relationship more than Melody Hensely:
Here’s her story…
A Washington native claimed that Twitter gave her PTSD – a condition normally experienced by war veterans. Melody Hensley was diagnosed with post traumatic stress disorder 16 months ago, following online abuse, which she says is a result of her being an outspoken feminist. Hensley has come under fire after she claimed that her PTSD due to the excessive use of Twitter – reading mean comments and cyberstalking those who are bashing her – are as bad as the mental anguish war veterans experienced.
In an interview with Dailydot, Hensley shared how she became a target for “atheist misogynists and men’s rights activists” a few years back, following her open status as an activist and atheist herself.
One man, according to her, even went as far as publishing all of her tweets using Storify. Others have cut and paste her tweets into YouTube videos, questioning her stand and claims regarding the disease.
What’s more, Hensley also claims to have been harassed by a mob of “more than 400 people” which she said led to her diagnosis.
On Twitter, Hensley wrote, “This wk has been tough. There has been a campaign against me. I’m blocking dozens of accounts of ppl telling me I don’t have PTSD & threats.”
In another tweet, she wrote, “They think years of online harassment and cyberstalking can’t cause PTSD. I’m here to say it can and it has. You will not silence me.”
Hensley also clarified certain claims being thrown at her. She wrote, “I didn’t self-diagnose or decide to have PTSD. I was diagnosed by a very good psychiatrist. I’m not looking for armchair psychiatrists.”
“I respect military and would call commanders and other authorities only to defend myself against threats.”
“I don’t discount military vets’ PTSD. I care about everyone with PTSD. I want people to realize that it is not a military-only condition.”
Daily Mail tried contacting Hensley for further comments but she said she is “not well enough to answer questions” at that time.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – feminists need to take feminism back from the crazies. For real, your entire movement used to have a purpose. You used to fight for suffrage, equal access to educational and career opportunities, and equal funding for sports. But now you have literally been taken over by an army of psychopaths with short hair. But now people like Melody Hensley are the rule, not the exception. Just an army of mentally unstable morons who think they’re some sort of champions of justice because they refuse to shut up. Ever.
I just found out who this idiot is today, thanks to a loyal reader who exposed me to her madness. She’s a special kind of idiot though. She embodies two aspects of our society that suck. They are:
1) The feminazi crowd. These people have convinced themselves that growing up white, middle class, and female is the hardest thing in the world to go through. Everything men say is by nature misogynistic. Men are evil by nature and will go around raping everything that walks if insert a quarter into them. If you don’t agree with that then you can’t see your own privilege.
2) The cyberbullying victim crowd. These people haven’t figured out how to ignore internet trolls. Instead of just blocking people who say mean things to them, they purposely go out and look for people who will magically turn them into victims. The internet was made for people to say vile things anonymously. It’s baffling that people haven’t figured this out yet and learned how to navigate through the madness.
The ultimate irony here is that feminists are supposed to be strong, independent women. How strong are you if you’re crumbling from basic internet trolls?
Here’s some of her better tweets:
Newsflash: Nobody wants to leave their home and go to work. This is called “life” not “PTSD.” We’d all love to have full time jobs where we sit at home and bitch on Twitter. You’ve obviously figured out a way to not only do that, but to convince some idiots on Twitter that this is actually a real disease, and you are actually suffering.
If this isn’t the face of someone suffering from PTSD, then I don’t know what is:
Since when did the feminist look HAVE to involve a short haircut, gigantic glasses, and small dogs?
Well, obviously she pissed a lot of people, so she of course went and threw a bunch of gasoline on the fire…..
Yea, watching your friends get blown up in front of you is the EXACT SAME THING as a bunch of internet trolls calling you a moron. Sure they can never, ever forget the things they’ve seen, while you can just close your laptop. But besides that it’s the EXACT SAME THING.
See the thing about this woman is she is a product of our society. We’ve given people the impression that having your feelings hurt is like having a cannonball shot in your face. No difference at all. She calls the online trolling she received for claiming to have PTSD, “hell on earth.” Because in America you can call sitting on your couch and tweeting all day “hell on earth.” Sure, soldiers who have seen combat have seen friends killed in front of their eyes. And that’s the EXACT SAME THING as what this poor idiot is going through by sitting in her pajamas on the couch. Makes sense.
Gotta love how she hides behind the feminist label too. Newsflash – people aren’t trolling you because you’re a feminist. People are trolling you because you’re belittling the experiences of people that can’t function in day to day society because they’ve experienced the trauma of combat.
Her pain is the SAME EXACT PAIN that people who went through war experience. Ya got that? She knows too. Because psychological pain is something that can be measured in metric units. But the people who point out that she’s literally pulling this out of her ass are the “troubled’ ones. Right….
So let me get this straight Melody…You are really “sick” because people say mean things about you on the internet. You hope to one day “conquer this disorder,” which you developed by going on Twitter. And you believe the best way to “conquer this disorder” is to go on Twitter as much as possible. Because that makes TONS of sense. Someone should tell a combat veteran who watched a friend get blown up by an IED that the best way to conquer their fears is to go back and watch it happen to a few more people.
See, the second tweet basically sums up why she sucks at life so much. Instead of identifying themselves as “nutjobs” or “psychopaths”, crazy people just call themselves “activists” and pretend like they’re standing up for some bullshit noble cause. She thinks she shouldn’t have to give up going on Twitter, even though it supposedly has made her really sick, because going on Twitter is her “job.” That’s like a football player with a broken leg refusing to come out of the game because playing football is their job.
A very good psychiatrist, who she has never once named. Right, it’s totally a real disease because you found some quack doctor to write you a note saying you get to work from home. Right.
She’s gonna call the drill sergeant on you guys!!! Gotta love this move on her part. Someone who actually can’t sleep at night because they get constant flashbacks to Iraq is offended by her claims that she suffers from the same disease they do. Then they message her to call her out on it. She responds by trying to ruin their career. Does it get any worse than this piece of human garbage?
Intense therapy? You mean like people who are learning how to walk? And now you have to lie in bed all day and go on the internet? You poor, poor baby.
Melody, we know you won’t be silenced. That’s because you’re a loud mouthed feminazi who likes to hear their own voice. Also, since when is tweeting at someone with an open Twitter account cyberstalking?
Right, because it’s all about you, and your idiot psychiatrist told you that. This isn’t surprising at all. We’re telling people these days that they should do whatever makes them feel good, regardless of how moronic or stupid it is.
Yea combat vets, get over yourselves!!! PTSD has changed this poor girl’s life forever. First she had to go to work every day like a normal person. Now she has to sit at home with her dogs and watch Lifetime movies while whining on the internet.
So this is America. We’re so sheltered from real world problems that doctors over here telling rich kids they can commit crimes because of “afluenza.” We tell everyone who isn’t white and male that they don’t have a fair chance in life because they’re not male and white. We tell people that instead of ignoring cyberbullies they should seek them out. And we tell people who are called names on the internet that they’re suffering from the same type of psychological disorders that heroes who served in combat are.
That’s why we’re doing the people’s work here at TurtleBoy Sports. Because someone has to let these idiots know how truly, truly wrong they are.
Feel free to share your thoughts to keep the conversation going.
