Militant medicine


I wouldn’t know whether to be appalled or appreciative if a doctor gave me this talk. Maybe it would help if there were martial music in the background, and she were wearing a tactical assault lab coat.

I’m also a bit put off at the idea that an appendix might grow back.

    You don’t have much experience with government documents, do you? The appendices multiply and grow back, even after being removed. They’re worse than sharks’ teeth… and an awful lot more dangerous.

    Seriously, my mother had her appendix taken out twice. And her tonsils, too.

    We suspect that the surgeons just didn’t do a very good job the first time. But hey, you never know.

    “a tactical assault lab coat” — I think this is also known as Indiana Jones’s leather jacket.

    Tbh, I kinda wish that doctors discussing top/bottom surgery with their trans patients did speak like this
