Woman claims she has PTSD from Twitter and cyberstalking -

I’m normally skeptical of anything from this particular source. But having seen many of these tweets myself, I find the story at least somewhat credible. This woman appears to think that she has PTSD - not from the sort of trauma that would meet Criterion A of the PTSD diagnosis, but from people saying mean things on Twitter.

I feel bad for her, and I do not doubt that she’s experiencing emotional pain. It seems unlikely that this is PTSD, as the diagnostic criteria are designed to be fairly restrictive, and Twitter harassment does not appear to meet Criterion A. You can find information on the diagnostic criteria for PTSD here.

SB 2681 has made its way to Gov. Bryant’s desk after passing both legislative chambers. It is time that he hears from all who oppose this discriminatory legislation which also threatens separation of church and state.

Why Promote Atheism?

Every time you bring in faith into any equation, it makes problems more difficult to solve. It’s just removing one trenchant variable, one variable, that will lead us to make decisions that are based upon reason.

I’m Not Mad at Your God

I am not an atheist because I am mad at your preferred god. I’m not sure how to be mad at something I don’t believe is real.

Is the reason you do not believe in Zeus, Odin, or Baal that you are angry with each of them? I doubt that very much.
