My man is so sweet and tender. Last night an ant ran across my back and instead of smashing it to death, he gently got it onto his hand and put it down. I know, as a rape and intimate partner violence survivor with PTSD, I will always struggle with feeling safe, but small things that he does like…

You DON’T have PTSD.
PTSD is a disorder normally brought on by militant experience.
The idea that your country allows you to kill a person or see the death of a person by will, causes this.
This isn’t brought on by rape. Sure, there is psychological disorders brought on by rape, but PTSD is Traumatized. It has to constantly happen, it has to actually be planted into your brain.
Please, find another word and stop trying to make yourself look like a war hero.

Have you ever heard of rape trauma syndrome??? Of course you havent, fuckwad. I have a legal diagnosis of PTSD. Fight me.

you are a fucking piece of shit if you’re gonna pull shit out of your ass to bully a rape survivor on the internet, cock head

Dipshit “devil’s advocate” arguing for the sake of argument on things they know absolutely nothing about. Go read a book! Specifically, go read the DSM-V. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder is exactly what the name implies, and YOU don’t get to define a medical diagnosis to invalidate the traumatic experience that is rape because YOU believe it isn’t “traumatic enough.” Eat shit beardedmice.

You’re saying you have Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
Understand me.
A disorder commonly associated and obtained with mentally challenging military experience.
Which can only be inflicted by a SERIES of traumatic experiences.
You’re telling me that you’re such a victim of rape and violence that you obtained PTSD from it? And can still provide yourself with a tumblr account to say so?
A lot of people WITH Post Traumatic Stress Disorder don’t like to state they have it, or don’t like to talk about how they obtained it.
I will apologize in advance if you have been a victim of a series of sexual violence, which I can understand, but as traumatic rape is, and I ackowlage it as a process of sexual violence, a single moment of rape cannot cause it.

You can say you’ve been diagnosed with it, but then again,
There was that woman who was supposedly given and supposedly confirmed PTSD by getting trolled on twitter.
I’d need a little bit of proof.

Why would you link Wikipedia’s entry for PTSD as proof of your misguided opinion that it is derived exclusively from repeated exposure when the first sentence says verbatim, “Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) may develop after a person is exposed to ONE or more traumatic events, such as sexual assault…”

? Did you read the article? Had you, I think you would see that it fails to corroborate what you’re claiming at any point.

PTSD is believed to be caused by the experience of a wide range of traumatic events and, in particular if the trauma is extreme, can occur in persons with no predisposing conditions.[9][10]

Persons considered at risk include, for example, combat military personnel, victims of natural disasters, concentration camp survivors, and victims of violent crime. Individuals frequently experience “survivor’s guilt” for remaining alive while others died. Causes of the symptoms of PTSD are the experiencing or witnessing of a stressor event involving death, serious injury or such threat to the self or others in a situation in which the individual felt intense fear, horror, or powerlessness.[11] Persons employed in occupations that expose them to violence (such as soldiers) or disasters (such as emergency service workers) are also at risk.[11]

Read causes of PTSD.
PTSD is believed to be caused by the experience of a wide range of traumatic events.
A wide range.
It says no where on the wiki the actual causes, so believe is our best strong word here.
I understand rape victims can obtain PTSD. It has to psychologically stick to you. PTSD isn’t something that just pops into your skull the second something traumatic happens.

You’re right! PTSD is not something that pops into your skull the second something traumatic happens! You are so right!

Unfortunately, no one (no one on this post at least) claimed it did! However, one instance of extreme violence CAN cause PTSD - as reiterated in the article YOU linked! If you are not a licensed therapist or psychiatrist, you are highly under-qualified for your self-appointed position of tumblr PTSD gatekeeper, and I suggest you cease and desist. Yeah? Yeah.

I’m not stating that anyone did say it.
If you are still confused, or at least can’t see from where I’m getting off, atleast,
From where I see, an event is a build up of moments in a period of time that relate to eachother.
Rape, even though as insulting as it sounds, isn’t that in the wide range of things “eventful”. It just happens, it’s an action. It can take place in an event of time, but isn’t an event of it’s own.
If “deportallwhitepeople2k14” has been sexually assaulted multiple times, I will stand down, and apologize.
(But from where I’m seeing it, she couldn’t prove it happened to her. No prescription, document of proof, etc. and the fact that I’m still carrying this argument is that you see this.)
From where I see it, one cannot just get PTSD from one moment. It would have to be heavily endorsed, even then, from a psychological point of view, from what I can gather, wouldn’t cause PTSD, maybe some social problems with the opposite gender, but it wouldn’t inflict immediate PTSD.
My grandfather suffered from PTSD, from what I was told from, he would wake up in agony and anxiety. He would usually stay in his house.
He wasn’t very social.
And from what I’m gathering, deportallwhitepeople2k14 seems very inept with her tumblr.
Like she has no actual problems.

Where the fuck do you get off telling anyone what their medical diagnosis is? Why would I have to prove shit to you? My doctor diagnosed me with PTSD. Why is that your business? Are you going to show proof of your grandfather’s PTSD? What’s wrong with you? You have no idea what I’ve gone through to get that diagnosis. Back the fuck off.

Hegemony: Applying the "Trickle Down Theory" to the way we talk about race, class struggle and gender

queeranarchistfeminist:

Sometimes it is just too painful to listen to my co-workers conversations. They can be mean, bigoted and completely oblivious to the ways in which they perpetuate and propagate oppression. Some of these people I have heard talking like this can be a person of color, a womyn of color, and/or be…

You and your words are so important (and fucking right on), my friend.

Police shoot teenage special-needs girl within 20 seconds of arriving to ‘help’

On June 3rd, 2014, the Serrano family was having difficulty with a young female family member who suffers from a mental illness and depression. Yanira Serrano-Garcia, 18, had apparently gone off of her medication and became agitated and hard to control.

“[Yanira] wanted to be normal. She wanted to stop taking her medication, and I get it. Sometimes when my feet hurt I just want to be normal. I don’t want to take pills. I get her…all we want is justice,” said a friend of Yanira’s during a community march. 

“Sadly, they mistook her for something she didn’t do, and a cop decided to get his gun out when he could have gotten out his taser, his pepper spray,” she said.

“She has special needs and we just want answers,” said Yanira’s brother, Tiny Serrano. “Who are we supposed to call now when we need help when who is supposed to help us is killing our kids?”

GODDAMMIT

I had to do a project in an abnormal psychology class that centered solely on a woman who had PTSD from sexual abuse. It’s post traumatic stress disorder, nowhere in the DSM does it state it has to be caused by fighting in a war.

Why the hell do we feel like we have a right to disagree with someone else’s experience.

Who do you think you are to say “you do not have this thing you say you have” when you do not know them AND are not qualified to diagnose.

Thank you.
