Buzzfeed Writer Claims Women Get ‘Real PTSD’ Watching Trump Debate

Buzzfeed Trump

by Blake Neff

A senior writer for Buzzfeed News claims she and millions of others women suffered “real PTSD” attacks simply by watching Republican nominee Donald Trump debate against Democratic nominee Hillary Cilnton.

Anne Helen Petersen writes about culture for Buzzfeed, and when she watched Monday night’s debate she was deeply upset over what she saw as Trump’s excessive interjections and interruptions while Clinton was speaking. So upset, in fact, that it was causing genuine psychological distress.

“It’s hard for some to understand why this debate is so hard for women to watch,” Petersen said. “True PTSD from every time a man has spoken over us.”

Petersen later deleted her tweet, but not before it was preserved by others. Petersen kept other tweets posted, such as one complaining about Trump’s “fat-shaming” of a mythical 400-pound hacker, one complaining that too many white men are involved in organizing presidential debates, and another suggesting Trump doesn’t view college-educated women as people.
