Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, a thoroughly reputable therapeutic approach that entails providing patients with predictable, controlled, and moderated exposure to their trauma triggers in a controlled environment under the supervision of a licensed clinician who is familiar with their history and invested in their recovery.

... which is pretty much exactly the opposite of springing it on people in a random class taught by someone who has no idea what kind of triggers his students have nor any personal investment in their recovery, now isn't it?

PTSD is bad.

I will bet you dinner at a nice restaurant that the douchebags who wrote that article, and most of the people smugly agreeing with them, don't believe that PTSD exists, any more than they believe that clinical depression exists. It's just a bunch of big babies being weak, and they need to man up and deal.

If it's the kind of thing you wouldn't joke about in front of somebody who'd been through it without knowing whether they were okay with it

See above. These are people who would joke about that in front of someone they knew had been through it, and then deploy the "But it was just a JOKE! Why are you being so over-sensitive?" defense.


All that said, this is a wonderful essay. Do you mind if I link to it elsewhere?
