Bodies with Vaginas

Remember back when it wasn’t OK to objectify women and reduce us to body parts? Seemed silly and unimportant back then but now that it’s gone, I miss it.

It’s almost always women who get humiliated this way. And always to please a bunch of angry, entitled men.

    1. This is the medical establishment we are supposed to trust. Terrified of a tiny bunch of mentally ill men into a total loss of professionalism. How will they be able to stand up to the pharma industry? Not great, obviously.

      1. The medical establishment is on the verge of obsolescence. What, if anything, will replace it, is an open question.

        At least they don’t do us the disservice of putting up a good front of trustworthiness, so that we’ll be fooled for a while longer about where there priorities lie. We know. They proudly paste it everywhere. They think of us as bodies: interchangeable meat-cogs in a vast money-making machine.

      1. Oh, sorry: “bodies with prostates”. It really does make it sound like forensic investigators opened up a mass grave and found a bunch of corpses… and a bunch of disembodied spare parts.

  1. Oh my god… so humiliating! (>.<)

    In which universe is this politically/morally/socially correct way of addressing a human being.

  2. I remember poring through articles published in the Lancet to extract every bit of knowledge I could.

    Now I don’t think of it as a medical journal anymore. It has turned into a very strange, very unappealing tabloid.

    1. Are you in a medical profession George? If so, and maybe others who are on this blog who are, does the current propaganda affect the way you interact with patients? I go to a doctor once in a blue moon so I can’t tell.

        I have a professional qualification in one of the well known medical disciplines but choose not to practice because of changes that were made that transformed the profession into an arm of industry. My attitude is that if I can’t heal people on my terms, I’m not doing it.

        Regarding the propaganda, everyone in this country has been enormously affected. Politicians, lobbyists, and bureaucrats are dictating what can and cannot be prescribed and what can and cannot be counselled. Dissenters are deregistered and hauled before professional tribunals.
