  3. Reminds me of the time that soy slurping insect wrote an article about how firing a gun for the first time gave him PTSD.

    It's also funny to me that all this happened in CWC's backyard.

  6. "Forty nine people can be gone in 60 seconds."

    Surely that isn't what passes for a high score these days? *testing fuses*

  7. I can’t decide which “cause” of PTSD is dumber. This, or getting sprayed in the face with a Squirt-Bottle.

  9. Remember when people reported on the holocaust, the pictures tney had to take, the stories they had to hear and make palatable for their audience? And this guy goes to a neonazi rally and writes a veritable novel on how it mentally scars him.

  11. I remember that article and all I can think of whenever I think on that, I remember how Noam Chomsky said his thoughts on the Punch A Nazi thing like "When we move to the arena of violence, the most brutal guys win – and that’s not us."

    This limp-wristed little queenie and the one that did OP's article have proven that assertion right so eloquently that it's almost depressing

  13. If you get PTSD from covering the alt-right, you’re a bigger fag than Milo. Go look at the footage journalists did in Vietnam then we’ll talk.

  15. I thought the end result of political correctness and everyone-gets-a-trophyness would be people too childish to handle criticism, and would erupt into tantrums and stomp their feet when they didn't get their way.

    It's far worse.

    We've gotten people who can't handle REALITY. The act of being exposed to dissent is literally traumatic to them.


    Agreed, I somehow think a reporter wearing a flak jacket while delivering his story was/is in more mortal peril than a person who got called a name over the internet.

  18. Except they literally saw someone get murdered. I expected this to be another stupid article about PTSD via twitter or something, but seeing someone get killed is... understandable as a cause.

    PTSD isnt "crying about" something if you really have it. Don't let fakers make you too cynical about how badly it can fuck up someone's life to be legitimately traumatized.
    That doesn't mean they weren't fucked up over it, they just kept it to themselves. And drank more.

  19. This is an example of the students Berkeley’s sending out into the real world. Can’t handle a different opinion and being an adult. We’ve got colleges and people who should know better encouraging this behavior. Welcome to current year.

  20. But fuck were they more respectable when it came to news. They literally chased their stories and gave first-hand accounts.

    Fuckwads these days retweet or link an article from another shit website as their source. Even worse is when their article is just rephrasing what their linked article fucking says god fucking damn I hate journalists these days.
