No Addyi isn’t a good weight loss drug (it’s still not a good libido drug either)

It started when a doctor I had never met or heard of before sent me a message on Twitter wanting to partner up efforts to get the word out about Addyi (the drug flibanserin for women’s libido that essentially doesn’t work and is selling like a lead balloon).   First of all I was like, … Continue reading

Science clearly says contraception is necessary for women’s health

The Federalist just published an anti-science, misogynistic screed on contraception. While this fact is not surprising it is shocking that this piece of propaganda was written by a physician. The articles makes quick work of belittling women: I wonder if the women using the #Fight4BirthControl hashtag understand how the contraception mandate works. Or how insurance works. … Continue reading

Explaining “ninth month” abortions and feminism to the National Post (and everyone else)

  Rachael Harder, a Member of Parliament (MP) in Canada with a near perfect record voting against choice and abortion rights, was named as chair of the Committee on the Status of Women. The Liberal and NDP MPs on that committee left in protest. This action and the fact that the Liberal and NDP parties … Continue reading

Dr. Sims built a lab and experimented on enslaved women. Take down his statues.

There are three statues of Dr. James Marion Sims on public display in the United States. Dr. Sims is known to some as the father of modern American gynecology for reportedly developing the first successful and reproducible surgical technique for vesicovaginal fistulas and for opening the first public hospital for women dedicated to repairing inuries … Continue reading

The only thing feminist about GOOP and Gwyneth Paltrow is the desire to be the female version of Infowars and Alex Jones

Gwyneth Paltrow recently claimed her detractors don’t do their homework and are afraid of empowered woman. She stated: “The difficulty is that you’re suggesting that people have autonomy over their health and some people love that and some people are like, ‘fuck you, just write me a prescription.’” she says of “challenging medicine as it … Continue reading

No the eclipse didn’t mess with your menstrual cycle

Marie Claire published a total bullsh*t article today on how the solar eclipse probably messed with your menstrual cycle. The doctors they reached out to did not feel they could offer an opinion. Undaunted Marie Claire asked some women who felt they had more PMS (personal experience is not science), an “integrative nutrition specialist,” and … Continue reading

GOOP’s misogynistic, mansplaining hit job

GOOP and Gwyneth Paltrow have a case of GOOPitis, which according to Dr. Steve Gundry is due to my potty mouthed facts. Or tomato skins. Or something. I find it all very disjointed, inadequately researched, bloated, and mansplainy. I first saw this GOOP letter thing on the train back from a wonderful day in Manchester … Continue reading

New study shows safety of Internet telemedicine for medical abortion in Ireland

Many women live in areas where abortion is not available. Women on Web (WoW) is a non-profit organization that provides online telemedicine for medical abortion up to 10 weeks of gestation. It works like this. Women fill out a form, it is reviewed by a doctor, and if they meet the guidelines the misoprostol and … Continue reading

An update on the GOOP infection post

Dear Readers, A representative of Dr. Myers’ claims she never said that magnesium is a therapy for infection and since my sources at the event missed her talk I feel I must take the word of her representative for it. I understand the talk was videoed and if it ever appears then obviously we can … Continue reading

Gwyneth Paltrow admits she doesn’t know what the f**k she’s talking about on Jimmy Kimmel

Gwyneth If-you-want-to eff-with-me-bring-your-A-game Paltrow was on Jimmy Kimmel last night and Kimmel was prepared to ask her about some of her Goop sh*t. He asked about earthing, squatting to empty your bladder, and of course the jade egg. Earthing Regarding earthing, i.e. walking barefoot, Paltrow says she really doesn’t know much, but “they say” (I … Continue reading
