“I Got My Feelings Hurt on the Internet!” Here’s an Idea, Turn Off Your Computer

Very few things have caused me to roll my eyes harder than reading an article about an atheist feminist who is claiming to have post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) as a result of harassment on the internet.


This woman is not related to the story at hand, but her sign fits rather well.

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.

I’ve often stated that those being bullied on the internet have a very simple solution to their problem…turn off the computer or delete the twitter or facebook account that is the source of your trouble, change your email address, etc. This is usually in response to children being harassed by peers or similar issues, but it’s even more applicable when it comes to an adult woman who fears her mental health has been compromised by her internet activity. Internet hate fuels me, but I understand it can be upsetting for some, which is why an adult needs to learn their limit and disconnect from the social media causing their distress when it becomes to severe.

Sometimes People Think I’m a Sociopath: My View on Making Politics Personal

tumblr_lq22xl5vJz1qcnhhzo1_r2_500Objectively I know I’m not a sociopath, even a high functioning on like Sherlock.*

Sociopaths don’t cry over commercials about babies or articles about strangers giving their kidney to a dying man.

They just don’t.

Because they don’t care.

But sometimes the thought crosses my mind, especially when I’m talking to other people about politics. Normally I brush the thought aside as a recognition that other people are far too emotional about politics and they ignore rational responses to political problems or antagonism from people who don’t like them.

In simpler terms, they get their feelings hurt a lot.

I don’t.

Things Feminists Hate: Disney Princesses – Ariel

Image property of Disney.

When I lived downtown I used to go to the public library on the weekend, it was big, had free books, and I didn’t have to pay for the electricity, but you ran into some really odd people on occasion and many of them don’t feel the slightest bit inclined to keep their nose out of other people’s business which is why I overheard the following conversation take place one day when I was looking for a DVD to check out.

A little girl (about 5) had been told to choose only two movies, but she picked up two and then saw the Little Mermaid and wanted it as well. As she argued the fact that she wanted all 3 with her mother, a random woman who was also looking at DVDs interrupted them.

Woman: Oh you don’t want to get The Little Mermaid.

Little girl: Yes I do, Ariel is my favorite.

Woman to girl’s mother: That’s really not a good movie for girls.

Mother: I’m not sure why it’s your business. (score one for mom)

Woman: I just don’t think girls should watch movies that tell them they have to throw away their life and get plastic surgery to get a man. (I rolled my eyes)

So This Happened

Got harassed by some psychotic anti-semite who called me a whore and I and Roseanne Barr ended up agree on something.






I didn’t say we agreed on anything BIG.

Big Surprise: Sandra Fluke Lied

I know, I know, this is old news, but let me ramble.

I recently tangled with an idiot over whether or not Sandra Fluke wanted her college (or the American people) to pay for her sex life (and the sex life of every other woman on the campus). Their argument, as is typical, is that Fluke wasn’t making an argument about needing birth control for sexual reasons, she wanted the school to provide it for medical reasons. PCOS (Polycystic Ovarioan Syndrome) being the most popular of these medical reason for liberals (and Fluke herself) to bring up. She claimed that students who had PCOS, or other medical needs the necessitated using birth control, could not get the birth control they needed because of Georgetown’s insurance policies.

This was, of course, a load of horse manure and 1o seconds on a google could prove it. So it always struck me as odd that so many people spent time debating Fluke’s demands based on the morality of them or the 1st amendment issues. Yes, the 1st amendment is hugely important, but common sense is important too, which is why smacking Fluke in the face with the actual Georgetown student insurance policy (specifically the FAQ section of it) several times would have been more useful.

Government Mandated Neverland: Parents? What Are Those?

I recently talked about the story of the of the Niklayev family of Sacramento, California in an article for Damn Straight Politics. The story was absolutely horrifying to me, that the police and a government organization like CPS could simply walk into your home without a warrant or any proof or documentation and take away a women’s child for unsubstantiated reports of neglect.

Are we living in the USSR now?

It’s like the government wants us to believe that we don’t have the right to raise our children as we see fit.

Oh wait, they aren’t actually OUR kids at all, they belong to the community at large, right Melissa Harris-Perry?

The government is invented a world in which parents don’t matter. Their own twisted version of Neverland where the peace pipe contains actual weed, Peter Pan is taught to recognize whether Tiger Lily and Wendy are sluts based on their clothing choices, the lost boys aren’t really sure they are boys at all, and Wendy can buy the morning after pill without talking to a doctor, a pharmacist, or her parents first.

Parents? Who needs ‘em?

A world where no one ever grows up, but they all do adult things and expect someone else to clean up the mess for them.

California is pushing for legislation that would allow boys and girls to use whatever bathroom they want, regardless of gender, as long as they feel they have a different “gender identity” than they were born with.

Yeah, that can’t possibly go wrong.

California Assemblyman Tom Ammiano [is] pushing a bill that would allow public school students to pick the bathroom of their choosing based on their “gender identity.”

Assembly Bill 1266 would force boys athletic teams to accept girls if those girls identified as boys, or vice versa. It would force schools to allow boys to use girls bathrooms if they identify as girls, or vice versa.

- Breitbart

But what about the parents? Where is their say in this little scheme to promote “equality”. Now I have no problem with people who say that they feel like they should have been born the opposite gender, but the issue is that 99% of the time they still have the same plumbing they were born with if they are under the age of 18 and so do all the other people of that gender.

So a boy who feels like a girl wants to be in the same bathroom and, quite possibly, the same locker room as well (unless they plan to relegate the one transgendered kid on the team to a separate locker room before and after practice and games. Try that and you really would hear the howls of “DISCRIMINATION!” from the left) as your daughter.

So does the rest of the male population that identifies as male. What’s to stop them from claiming they are transgendered and walking right in any way?

Do you really want the problems that come with that? I certainly wouldn’t feel comfortable putting my son or daughter in a room where they are exposing their genitalia to use the restroom or shower or change for games and having people of the opposite gender sanctioned to come into that room and expose themselves right along with them.

But somehow I’m just a closed minded bigot for wanting to have a say over which gender is allowed around my child when they are removing clothing.

Then there’s the fact that the FDA has decided that not only do girls as young as 15 need to be able to buy the morning after pill, but they really need to be able to do so without their parents permission and they really need to be able to do it without talking to a pharmacist about the side effects of a drug that, essentially, performs a chemical abortion.

The government is moving the morning-after pill over the counter for those 15 or older.

Today, Plan B One-Step is sold behind pharmacy counters, and buyers must prove they’re 17 or older to buy it without a prescription. Tuesday’s decision by the Food and Drug Administration lowers the age limit and will allow the pill to sit on drugstore shelves next to spermicides or other women’s health products and condoms — but anyone who wants to buy it must prove their age at the cash register.

- The Blaze

Yeah, 15 year olds are totally old enough and responsible enough to understand the risks of taking dangerous medication.

Here’s a quandary, why are Plan B pills stocked next to the Trojans, but you still need a doctor’s visit to be prescribed a low dose birth control pill? Why aren’t they next to the flavored, glow in the dark rubbers?

Not only that, but in New York City school nurses can hand out the Plan B pill (and have, to thousands of students) without permission from the parent. I couldn’t even get an aspirin when I was in school, without a signed release form. How much longer till this spreads to your local school?

Parent’s opinion on whether their daughter (who probably has no idea if the medication is something she is allergic too or will interact with other medication she’s on) should be taking this stuff? Why would we need that?

Here’s another interesting “WTF?!” moment that happened recently.

Outraged parents say a New York middle school instructed young female students to ask one another for a lesbian kiss – and boys learned how to spot young sluts – in an anti-bullying presentation on gender identity and sexual orientation, according to Fox News’ Todd Starnes.

According to Starnes’ report, the children attended a special April 11 health class taught by college students at Linden Avenue Middle School in Red Hook, N.Y. Parents say they were not notified of the presentation.

The students were introduced to terms such as “pansexual” and “genderqueer.”

Some of the young female students said they were told it was common for 14-year-old girls to have sex and their parents couldn’t stop them.


Now I know exactly which girl I would have asked for a kiss (and I probably would have got it) in school if this had happened to me, but that’s beside the point. (She was bad news, 2 grades above me, and so hot it hurt to look at her sometimes.)

Seriously though, what the ever loving hell?

The lesbian kiss request is weird enough, but teaching boys how to spot “sluts”? I thought that was a “no-no” in liberal ideology.

Mandy Coon, one of the parents, got it right when she said this:

“I am furious. I am her parent. Where does anyone get the right to tell her that it’s OK for her to have sex?”


For some reason my little sister wouldn’t be able to buy a soda bigger than 16 oz. in New York City, but she could get Plan B over the counter and her parents would never be wiser. That infuriates me.

Every day they are taking away our right to make basic decisions for ourselves and our families, turning that right over to alphabet agencies. IRS, FDA, CPS, and so many others.

In the [paraphrased] words of Ronald Weasley, “Liberals need to sort out their priorities.”

Liberals really are living in a fantasy land.

Journal: Day 1 of the Sequester

I woke up this morning, this was something I did not expect.

I had expected my house to catch fire in the night and burn to the ground with me in it, as spending cuts have reduced the number of firemen and police and other first responders in my city.

I got up, the electricity was still on, I still had coffee and took a shower. We still have water, hallelujah, but I don’t know how long that will last.

Unfortunately Maxine Waters was wrong about the loss of 170 million jobs and I still had to go to work. My sister’s school was still open, too bad for her…she put off doing her Spanish homework in hopes that the apocalypse would halt classes for at least a day.

There has not been a rash of looting or rioting in the streets over this spending decrease and that seems to be holding true through the day. Perhaps people are just in shock, tomorrow may be the real beginning of the end for us.

The trains and buses are still running, though the schedule appears to be off on the buses, whether that is a symptom of general panic or just a sign that our bus drivers have been drinking again, no one yet knows.

Parking lots at local grocery stores are packed in, this is clearly a sign of panicked preparation for things to come. The 1st of the month is usually a busy day for grocery stores, what with welfare and disability and social security checks being deposited and food stamps being renewed, but that can’t possibly be the reason as we all know that the sequester’s cuts have decimated those social programs.

I can only suspect that today is the calm before the storm, shock has settled over the city and people are going about their day to day routines, acting as if the world is not coming to an end, as if it will help. Tomorrow the shock will wear off and the apocalypse will truly begin.

I will continue reporting in as long as the internet remains functional.

Dear God, have mercy on us all.
