Another day, another pervert.

Remember when we had posters here trying to convince us the media blows up racism and sexism and it's really all just great in 2017...

I wish we had a scale of sexism so we could figure out what's ok and what isn't. That would come in handy.

All the time. Patient satisfaction scores are a big deal in medicine right now, and we have provider coaches going around all the time telling us to greet people warmly, smile more, thank them for their time, etc.

I'm afraid that there will be more people for you to be disappointed in in the near future.

Context does matter, after all.

Yes that's an entirely different context. As an aside I think it's ridiculous too, focus should be elsewhere. Dealing with my mother's illness for almost three years now and so many doctors and staff and the whole rest of it. Smiling while making people wait 45 min or more-nah. Making things like refills a colossal hassle. Smile?

My mother's surgeon actually chewed gum during one of our appointments. After we found out she had incurable cancer, he says to me "is everything ok"? I said no, everything 's not ok. He then says well it is what it is. Ugh. That's fine Belichick post game media snark. Not to a patient's daughter who found that out one week after her birthday.

Luckily one of her doctors is an absolute gem and treats me so well that it's a true blessing in my life.

Now I have to go look up what AL Franken did.

The lock her up crowd are extremely concerned about innocent until proven guilty now, they’re very concerned about ruining a good judge’s name, and only because another woman wants her 5 minutes.

We’re fucked...

My thoughts exactly .

I don't recall people really telling me I needed to smile more. I'm sure there were some who did at some point, but I don't remember that ever really being a thing for me the way it has for other people. The big thing people tend to say about me is, "You're always so quiet. Speak up more!"

Heh, thanks . I just tend to feel much more comfortable communicating when I'm writing (or typing) than I do when I'm speaking to somebody in person (unless I'm comfortable around them and know them well). I used to be painfully shy as a kid, too, which I think explains some of that awkwardness.

So many things about this, where to begin. "When I was younger and prettier", for starters.

Are my ears deceiving me or does she say at 0:26 of the video at the bottom of the story "I was an escort for 22 years"?

ETA: Never mind just listened again, she is saying "S Corp"

"When you're a star, they let you do it. You can do anything."
- the President of the United States

As much as I am gratified to see creeps go down and would like to see Trump face the same kind of pressure based on pretty clear evidence, this speedy public trial of celebrities via social media feels gross and kind of dangerous.
