Retail plus medicine equals “retailicine.”

A presenter at the Congress on Aesthetic Vaginal Surgery, Tuscon, AZ, 2010. From the June 2011 issue of The Atlantic.

There’s just so much wrong with this I don’t know where to start.

For one, there’s this: which is worse? That there are women who apparently choose to reshape their genitals in “the Barbie”? Or that “retailicine” may be the most perfect description of the state of modern American healthcare I have ever seen?

Just going to leave this right here while I go weep in a corner.

For the past decade and a half I have been making all my content available for free (and never behind a paywall) as an ongoing practice of ephemeral publishing. This site is no exception. If you wish to help offset my labor costs, you can donate on Paypal or you can subscribe to Patreon where I will not be putting my posts behind a lock but you'd be helping me continue making this work available for everyone. Thank you.  Follow me on Twitter for new post updates.
