      Thank you for saying this: “You used to fight for suffrage, equal access to educational and career opportunities, and equal funding for sports.” That’s the sort of feminism my mother, my aunts, and my grandmother practiced.

      These days I’m embarrassed to call myself a feminist and *loathe* that people like Hensley (among many others) are the public and online face of today’s feminism. The image they are putting out there is that women are hothouse flowers and men must tiptoe around them and *never* disagree (because that’s harassment and bullying, dontchyaknow).

      I’ve talked to way too many men who say they’re reluctant to talk to women as they’re afraid they’ll say something completely harmless but it will be construed as “sexual harassment” or “misogynistic”. Just take a peek at “Elevatorgate” and “Donglegate” to see how far down the moronic rabbit hole this sort of thing goes.

      And as far as Hensley’s “PTSD”, I’m reminded of something my father repeated to me often: “Man goes to a doctor and says to the doctor ‘it hurts when I do this’. The doctor says ‘don’t do that’.” Simple.

        Renee, that was such a great comment that I won’t even ask you to go on a date with me to Betty’s. OK, that’s a total lie.

      2. Ron Brown


        It’s refreshing to see someone who identifies as a feminist call this sort of nonsense out.

      If she goes another month bed ridden we’re going to see her on my 600-lb life. #PTSD

      What a ridiculous person to even compare herself to combat veterans. She is a narcissist and a grandstander. This person should not be argued with because you cannot argue with stupidity. Well written article.
      It said that this is just another example of how society is becoming soft and “equal in every respect” rather than “fair and “just”.

    5. Maris Stella


      She’s a worse person than a, say, genocidal dictator or a serial rapist?

      You have some really special moral standards.

      1. Joey G


        It really depends on the genocidal dictator…

      All that good work that genuine Old School Feminism did has been diluted by these people. They rail on about misogyny yet hardy a word about the Women of the middle east who are seriously threatened with being burned alive, stoned, having noses cut off & acid thrown in their faces, the life of an “Online Activist” seems a little odd to me but then again, i’ve not “Checked My Privilege” today.

      1. Greenaum


        Yup. Ultimately it’s all about attention and making themselves feel good.

        Ironically their lack of logic, attention-seeking, childishness and hysteria, are exactly the sort of behaviour women have been criticised for in the past. Seems like they really would benefit from their dads spanking them.

        Real feminists don’t whine and use the preposterous guilt tactics of small children. Real feminists FIGHT for their rights. They take insults and bounce them right back. Being grownups, and being right, is why feminists up til the 1990s got their respect. They demanded respect and they took it, and ultimately most people realised that they were right, that women (and black people, and queer people, and all the rest) really were being mis-treated grievously.

        Melody and her many look-alikes pout and whine, somehow expecting some Cosmic Parent to step in and give them the candy, as they stick their tongue out at their Global Elder Brother in victory. Of course in real life a parent would only do that to shut the whiny kid up, knowing he can’t reason with them.

        Overall it’s bizarre. I think it has roots in the glorification of the victim, which happened in the 1990s, Oprah Winfrey and similar people being responsible. People who were traditionally “victims” being shown as the worthwhile and great people they were DESPITE their misfortune. From there, some idiots took the message that, by pretending to be a victim of something, everyone would love and respect them too. That’s not how it’s supposed to work!

        So we get the Privilege Olympics, a group of idiots making up mental illnesses to pretend to suffer, to give them the concomitant moral superiority. Utter nutcases and man-children, as well as woman-children, awarding themselves the respect they think they’re due. The sort of subterfuge a small child might think better than to try.

        But here we are, with the empty vessels making the most noise. Meanwhile ACTUAL unfortunate people, the disabled, the poor, society’s downtrodden, are being fucked over by a new kind of conservatism that’s psychopathic and evil. And anyone who opposes them is lumped in with idiots like Melody, here. It’s not their annoying attention-seeking that’s worst about them, it’s the fact that, in the minds of the public, they’re taking away the legitimacy of genuine and important causes.

    7. Have severe PTSD, go outside daily. love talking to people too.


      PTSD only causes the things she claims for very rare – ridiculously extremely rare – cases of PTSD. It doesn’t in any way, shape, or form cause you to be bed ridden – of any severity. House ridden maybe [big maybe], bed ridden, never.

      1. Chico


        Not really true. Sometimes the depression part of the PTSD is so bad I can’t get out of bed, eat, or shower for days. Though I doubt very much this lady has PTSD.

      2. Greenaum


        Melody (what an utterly unsuitably name!) doesn’t know that. She read about PTSD on Tumblr. No doubt she got her “diagnosis” in a non-committal, technically-no, kind of way from some sort of part-time counsellor who said whatever it was just so she’d shut up and leave their office.

    8. Holls


      Post traumatic stress disorder is in no way limited to war veterans. It’s absolutely possible for someone to be so heavily traumatised by comments alone. I say this after having gone through sexual abuse, parental neglect, further emotional, psychological abuse and sexual abuse followed by distrust founded in family, trusted friends and even complete strangers taking advantage of me from the age of 4. Having PTSD means you can expect any and every emotional, psychological, physical etc trigger to further traumatise you in mundane day to day situations where any amount of stress is applied. Whether she developed PTSD prior to or because of twitter is irrelevant. If it has been diagnosed the public owes her. If you have the sense to recognise a war veteran with PTSD then it’s even more barbaric to attack someone who has developed it just because it wasn’t done at war. Instead of contributing to the problem by harassing someone further how about supporting them and helping them learn to live with how society has let them down.

      1. Billburr


        “If it has been diagnosed the public owes her.”

        Fuck you.

      2. lol


        No one owes this fucking narcissist a god damn thing. I agree with the other reply you got, fuck you.

      3. Greenaum


        Sure you don’t have to go to war to get PTSD. I think having people disagree with you on Twitter is a somewhat unlikely cause though. Particularly since she keeps going BACK to Twitter to say the same old rubbish, only now with “I gots PTSD guize” added, so everybody knows she’s right about everything and a Very Brave Little Girl.

    9. Matt


      Ok I know PTSD can be caused by a lot of things Child abuse rape but to say twitter is a cause to me sounds like BS but that’s not really what I take issue with, It’s her saying that she respects soldiers with PTSD then states she will go to their commanders if they keep telling her she hasn’t and that their statistics are not the highest that maybe the case but I can assure you It can be the worse.
      little experiment here which is worse?
      A) being called mean things on the internet
      or
      B) watching friends women children getting killed before your eyes or this specific example watching your best friend having his legs blown off and being helpless to do anything as he screams on the floor in agony

      If your a public figure on the Internet abuse is what you get just anyone else in the public eye not everyone is going to like you and the more your views seem stupid to them the more trolls you attract to her I say grow up and accept it just because you cry you have frankly a potentially life destroying mental condition won’t make it go away

    10. kathvonstrike


      Child abuse, rape, witnessing a murder and certainly not to forget, being in combat can cause PTSD. But this… cyberbullying? I think… she just told this psychiatrist who’s name we do not know for some vage reason, some symptoms she read on the internet. That while she mixed it with her tumblr “harassment” stories. Something like: “I can’t take it anymore. It’s like I can constantly hear the words ‘you’re a bitch’ in my head.” People are capable of this. People like her. She sure needs a psychiatrist, but not for PTSD. More for having the “syndrome of Munchausen.” It’s a syndrome for people that make themselves believe they are sick. She makes herself believe she has PTSD. She made this psychiatrist believe it, if that person is even real. It’s so, so, SO unfair, for people suffering from actual traumas. It’s unfair for the girl, feminist or not, that actually got raped (you probably are also familiar with these “every man raped me”-feminist), it’s unfair to the kid getting abused by his parents and it is so unfair to all the soldiers that served in any war ever!

      I don’t get people like this. It’s like they get energy from the sympathie of other people and even from the critique of her “enemy”. She is her own enemy.

      I have been publicly shamed in front of 10,000+ for opening my big mouth and saying stupid things at the wrong time . I would say that this lady needs to get over it but then I thought to myself that maybe she’s just doing this for attention.

    13. Pluto Animus


      How sad that you have no life.

      Perhaps you should get one, since no one is going to be your girlfriend anytime soon.

      1. lol


        Wow what a witty retort. People like you are worse than this psychotic bitch herself, at least she’s a fucked up and delusional narcissist…you on the other hand are witnessing this bullshit from an outside perspective and let yourself be convinced that this crybaby with her first world problems is actually suffering from ptsd. She could’ve stopped reading the tweets at any time. That’s the problem with you wannabe feminists, you come from a place of self proclaimed victim hood and start talking shit to your imagined assailants, then when you lose that argument you take the role of the victim even further, booohooo they’re attacking me! Get a thicker skin or do the world a favor and fuck off, no one is here to coddle you and cater to your delusions of grandeur. How about you go cry to your therapist about it.

    14. ajm5007


      I am a combat veteran with PTSD, and everything she says about it is true, whereas everything you MRA retards have said in response to her about it is false. You clearly just hate women (this one in particular) and enjoy telling lies about them (especially this one).

      1. lol


        Fuck you too. Typical feminist response, if men don’t put up with your entitled temper tantrums it’s because they are mysoginists. Hell, every man is a mysoginist to you imbeciles. I guess when you don’t have a valid argument to make, parroting shit that you’ve heard other feminists say is the best you can do. You don’t get to dictate what is and isn’t the truth just because you disagree with men, hate to break it to you. So spare everyone your self righteous feminist catch phrases and go fuck yourself, you should have plenty of time to do so judging from your bitterness towards men, surely none of them wanna fuck you anyhow. If this idiot, and you for that matter can’t take being insulted, here’s a thought, quit trying to insult people. But I guess that wouldn’t suit your victim hood motif, now would it?

      2. lol


        And what’s really great about idiots like you and her, is that you don’t even realize that REAL feminists are ashamed of you. They’re busy fighting for worthwhile causes, real injustices, and you’re fighting for the right of some entitled idiot to lie about having PTSD because she was unable to win an argument. But that’s the whole game plan right? It’s not her fault for provoking people to argue with her and then continuing to argue with them to the point that she “got PTSD” from it. No, it’s men’s fault for being such mysoginists and not coddling a delusional moron. It’s all “Waaaah I’m a victim” with you morons. You wouldn’t know how to live in a world where you couldn’t constantly blame men for your failings in life, you’re obsessed with perpetual victim hood. Your response was in no way rooted in any truth. You just like to keep things vague so no one can call you out on your bullshit. “Everything she said was true”. Yeah, like what exactly? How do you know it’s true, are you her psychiatrist? No? Then how is your assumption about this any more correct than anyone elses? It isn’t. Then of course, “Everything you MRA retards have said…is false”. Like what? No examples? How exactly is it any more false than anything that you just said? Do you have some sort of evidence to support that statement? No. You don’t. And I hate to break it to you, but with the exception of abusive asswipes, men don’t hate women. We just hate self-righteous nitwits like yourself that try to make everything about misogyny because men don’t kiss your ass. And I almost guarantee you that your hangups with men are based upon you being ignored by them, most likely because you’re as physically ugly as you are on every other level. Enjoy your life as a victim, because that’s all you’re ever going to be, hell, it’s all you’ll probably ever want to be. Go impose your self-righteousness on your fellow retards, spare the rational people your tantrums.

    15. Drunkenstein


      I’m ashamed to live on this planet with these disease-bags. If I wanted to get a laugh at an idiot, I’d rather go to a circus.

    16. Quite Likely


      I’m confused, what is everyone so mad at Hensley about? That she overreacted to being harassed on twitter? Seems like even taking that into account she’s still the victim here, right?

      1. Harry


        The main crux of the issue is yes, she has undubtedly been bullied online, which is neither cool or acceptable. However, she has alleged she has PTSD from it, yet continued to put herself in the firing line whilst rather arrogantly belittling persons who had PTSD from certainly more difficult and mentally challenging situations. Although one could argue pain is measured by the person, I feel it is clear to say this lady plays the victim and enjoys the attention she receives from being a victim. Persons who have suffered mental abuse, physical abuse or have seen terrible things I am only too glad I have never seen generally want to aviod putting themselves back in the firing line, so to speak (and quite literally).

        So is she still a victim? I am not too sure… involving yourself in conflict and putting yourself in situations that can mentally harm you does not seem like the behaviour of someone with PTSD, in fact it kinda sounds the complete opposite.

        It just comes across as someone wanting to be a victim. And there is the difference.

        The feminazi thing… well I can’t comment, but as a feminist myself… and one who was born with a penis… and advocates equal rights on many levels for all kindas of persons, all I can say it extremism comes in many forms and on many levels. And extremism is always a negative behaviour.

    17. Bill


      Let’s just set this down really fast.
      PTSD is a condition caused my severe emotional and physical trauma that is experienced in ones life that becomes so much to deal with the individuals mind is damaged.

      that is not an internet phenomenon, and if a Doctor really did diagnose a victim of cyber bullying with it that Dr needs to keep reading their medical journal because there is a list of disorders that could be caused by excessive emotional torment, that all could possibly fit the bill.

      in order to suffer PTSD you yourself must have lived thru or in a severe physical or emotional trauma the examples of which are numerous, but one is not being called names or harrassed on twitter

      Don’t like it tough, the truth and fact of a matter does not require your consent

    18. Tricycle


      Well, this sums up the 21th century society’s decadence.
      Thanks progressivism and all the shit behind!
