When soldiers with PTSD come back from war they might receive different treatment from others, they might be treated like a feral dog perhaps. This might be because they act different, this might include hyper-vigilance, lots of anxiety, stress, nervousness, and lots of hesitation with talking to new people. Several people talk about their past experiences and how it affects them today. “Any incopentance Bear encounters in civilian life arouses the same feelings of fear, rage, and grief.” (Shay, para. 25).
What is Post-Traumatic-Stress-Disorder and why should we learn more about it? Post-Traumatic-Stress-Disorder (PTSD) is a brain disorder that is caused by stress and some sort of trauma. This disorder can be influenced by life occurrences such as being in a war, abuse, assault, natural and unnatural disasters, military combat, and even accidents. PTSD affects the lives of 8 million people worldwide, including children! This disorder is known for being more prone to women than men.
Like Terry Erikson’s dad in Stop the Sun, people who suffer from post traumatic stress disorder need support and assistance from others. PTSD is a serious issue with not only veterans of war and war combat, but also everyday citizens in America, for even traumatic events like car accidents and local crime can change a person’s life forever. PTSD can present itself in many different ways. Some may include depression, bad dreams, and frightening thoughts. Any symptoms can be diminished or even cured from medication or
First, Miss Andrews names the disorder and explains what PTSD means; such as, “the post in PTSD means it happened a while ago” (Andrews, 2012, p. 2). Second, Miss Andrews details the events that cause parents to suffer from PTSD. Namely, car accidents, fighting in a war, natural disasters, and getting attacked or hurt by someone. Next, the author describes the feelings and actions their parents may exhibit. Last, Miss Andrews tells children it is not their job to fix the problem; it is an adult problem.
LGBT people are people too; they have feelings, they can love, they can do anything that straight people can do too. There’s nothing wrong with being a gay, of course it is okay. It should be who you are and not if you love the same sex. I have a friend who is bisexual but I’m still her friend. It doesn’t change who she is.
But it is not a reason for their issues to be overlooked. They too are living, breathing human beings. They should not be shunned just because they do not conform to the archaic social perceptions. Times are changing and we as the human race have evolved beyond the limits we ourselves set in the beginning. Particularly regarding the transgender issue, we are only just on the threshold of complete knowledge and understanding.
They will be the ones to make the change, to fight for the LGBT community, all because they were once inspired as young children by Jenner’s story. Mosques, churches, and temples will someday accept the LGBT community and stand with them. It is inevitable, almost a guaranteed outcome. Religions all have one thing in common, without followers, they have no power. This can be seen throughout the years.
Tumblr is a place where mostly teenagers find their spot to be their anonymous real self. This community is really progressive, it’s for instance nothing weird to use pronouns that don’t match your gender on this online platform. The context of the conversation is quite strange, but only the 4th comment is relevant for this paper. It says “Tumblr made us forget that some people are actually straight”, which reminded me a lot of the short story. On this site, it’s so easy to come out as LGBT, because everyone is so open-minded, that it’s unusual if someone is actually queer.
It’s not complicated…” (Bono, 2013) Although many people would disagree, I think the transgender community should have the right to use the restroom of the gender they identify with or have an alternate choice. Some people may argue that it would be a dangerous liability, but try walking a mile in the shoes of a person who is transgender. Some people may even agree to providing gender neutral restrooms. The dangers of a person of the opposite sex using the restroom they prefer are very obvious, but is every person out to cause danger to other people in the restroom?
It is ridiculous and unbelievable that the Internet can bully an individual. It has become clear that cyberbullying is a severe problem now. This battle in cyberspace never ends and is consistently reflected in the headlines of many medias in the past few years. It is tremendously
