I Get Mail – Rhino Den/Ranger Up and the fallacy of PTSD comparisons

I had a rather strange e-mail. I wrote a piece a while back about PTSD and Melody Hensley. For those who don’t want to read that gigantic wall of text again? TL:DR I have PTSD from being a refugee in the 1st Gulf War aged 5. And I do not think that Melody’s experience of …

Apostate

“The fact that a woman has been sentenced to death for her religious choice, and to flogging for being married to a man of an allegedly different religion is appalling and abhorrent.
