The Web site of one ahead-of-the-curve [cosmetic gyn] doctor featured not only a $500 coupon but also “Patriot Program” discounts for federal employees and military personnel.

A follow up to the previous quote about cosmetic genital surgery (read the whole piece, really).

The “Patriot Program”, eh? I can imagine the doctor informing this hypothetical patient that the surgery is “Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue and we can shape your vulva like a proper American eagle! Fuck, yeah!”. (Fuck yeah, figuratively and non figuratively speaking, I assume, in this case).

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.
