At the end of 2011, Trunk came under fire yet again for a pair of posts that chronicled a low point in her relationship with the Farmer.

While some of her readers are genuine fans of her work, others are drawn to her precisely because she is such a mystifying mess. The nature of online interaction means that Internet culture is inherently skeptical, if not outright cruel. And existing sexism and the stigmatization of mental illness combine to support a culture in which women who are deemed “crazy” are readily ridiculed and dismissed, even—or especially— when they offer explicit accounts of abuse.
