Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder



Are you mad, or are you mad? Maybe your anger is not a result of inane opponents, but caused by Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Perhaps you're not a #$%* after all. You may be suffering from an actual mental disorder.

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

There is a disturbing trend in gaming in the past decade. Players have become more abusive, albeit virtually rather than physically. Online players display the worst behavior, especially towards weaker players and females, who are erringly considered weaker players by chauvinistic males.

Most of the abusive offenders are male, and the overwhelming majority of them are young. Alarmingly, many of them are preteens.

There's nothing wrong with being angry, but the way it's expressed can be devastating for both the victim and the victimizer. Anonymity allows the bully to operate unrestrained in cyberspace. Society breaks down completely when people don't obey laws, and the telltale signs of this impending Armageddon begin with the decay of social etiquette.

Unsurprisingly, this societal breakdown is being fueled by gamers experiencing Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. As incredulous at this sounds, this phenomenon is real, not imagined.
