I fact checked Gwyneth Paltrow’s GOOPY tampon claims. They’re a hot mess.

Dr. Jen Gunter

Gwyneth Paltrow and GOOP are hiring a fact checker because they couldn’t Word Salad their way into a publishing agreement with Condé Nast.

Sigh.

It is troubling that Paltrow finds medical facts tiresome and old school (per her profile in the New York Times Magazine) and yet wants to help women find good information about health. Facts are the thing that makes one empowered to make health care decisions, although it is possible they get in the way of purchases.

Since I am the 2018 People’s Choice for GOOP fact checker I decided to do one for you all in return for giving me this prestigious award.

I am working on the menstrual hygiene chapter for my book, The Vagina Bible, so I decided to fact check the recent GOOPy claims about SHE. tampons, a product they are only having a conversation about and totally not endorsing even though they…

Gwyneth Paltrow and GOOP say the joke is on you if you followed their advice

Dr. Jen Gunter

Imagine if I told you something about health and a lot of experts who knew more than I did pointed out I was wrong. They even provided sources.

Imagine then instead of being embarrassed that I had passed false information on to women I doubled down and called my detractors desperate for attention and accused them of not wanting to empower women in their health choices.

Now imagine I went back and retroactively labelled those posts as entertainment or just an interesting idea? Ha ha, my bad!

What would you call me?

A hypocrite.

If I were selling product based on those posts and the attention they garnered in the press you would probably call me a grifter and maybe even a fucking hypocrite.

You’d be right and that is exactly what GOOP is doing.

GOOP is retroactively labelling “wellness” posts so women can figure out what was pure bullshit, what…

So Sookie stopped by to chat this morning – Decisions, Ch. 33 (yes, Decisions) (yes, Sookie)

Addicted to Godric...Eric...Andre...(Sevrin)

So yeah, Sookie from Decisions (yes, DECISIONS) stopped by this morning and was all chatty – downright verbose for her usual self!  I’m not an idiot (usually) so hell yeah I took advantage of this situation.  I’m only now on my *SECOND* cup of coffee and this chapter is done and everything!  For SOME vague, strange, dunno-why-I-think-it reason I had the notion that you Eric/Sookie shippers might enjoy this rare other-character treat, so here:

Enjoy!

What I am going to do is the following

We can’t let this fandom die!!!

You Want Blood Awards

An empty podium stands in the front of the room where everyone is waiting for notification about what is going to happen to our beloved fandom. A door in the back opens and in walks a simple woman surrounded by two very famous members of said fandom: Eric Northman and Godric.  The impressive vampires stand to each side of the podium to provide their support. The woman takes her place behind the podium and is nervously shuffling and straightening of her note cards.

*cough cough, deep breath*

“Testing….Testing… Can everyone hear me? Anyone still here? Heck, I’m continuing anyway. Okay, I am not an eloquent writer like some of the amazing women in this fandom. I don’t even have the ability to proof read my own posts often not finding the mistakes until days after it was posted so I will depend on someone else for that. *You know who…

Something I need to say…

Soap box

Normally I take everything with a grain of salt. I know all of you are really invested in the stories you read, and I love that about all of you. But what I cannot tolerate are the anonymous people on fanfiction.net that like to shit hate (thank you EIM!!) because they don’t like what they THINK is going to happen in a story.

I know how I left the last chapter of Waking Up Dead, and a lot of people aren’t happy with it. That’s OK; I expected it. To be honest, I like causing controversy. With that being said, this story IS NOT an E/S/G pairing. It is an E/S pairing. HOWEVER, to expect a newborn vampire with impulse control issues (which is what Sookie is) to be  monogamous is somewhat ridiculous in my humble opinion. Did I say Sookie is gonna fuck everything under the moon? No. Did…
