A place for endometriosis survivors & supporters, and all that goes with it.

This is what you call “not helping your case”

2 Comments

Some interesting screengrabs of Tweets from Drew Pinsky, his wife Susan, and the ditch they are digging themselves into more and more today with terrible handling of Pinsky’s misguided (at best) comments about endometriosis and IC during the Loveline show on Thursday night.

Apparently the situation at hand may be discussed on his show on Monday, April 28. We shall see. Even if it is, Susan Pinsky makes it sound like we’re in for another shit sandwich.

To follow what’s going on, you don’t even need to have a Twitter account. Mine is twitter.com/endosucks (or @endosucks if you do have an account). Drew Pinsky is @drdrew, @loveline and @drdrewHLN (yes, he’s on CNN too), though he does also have others (like for the podcast). Susan Pinsky is @firstladyoflove.

If you want to respond, tweet at these accounts, and/or use the trending term #educatedrdrew.

And then this treasure happened. Why would Dr. Drew love something sent out by a dietician who specifically deals with IC, a disease he believes has no genuine pathology? HMMMM. My response is below; for some reason, it isn’t showing up on his feed any more.

Patriarchy like whoa.

  1. Oh. My. God. I didn’t have a lot of respect for this man to begin with, now I have none. I wonder if he’s related to family physician…that’s about how I get treated. I really hope the caller realized what ASS the “good doctor” truly is.

  2. Reblogged this on Seeking My Lost Voice and commented:
    This is UNACCEPTABLE! A garbage diagnosis? Gee, where have I heard that before? Oh, wait I know… When my doctor said the same thing about my MS diagnosis. I have heard variations of the same kind of misogynistic bullshit from more than a few “doctors” before. F**k you, Dr. Drew. How DARE you immediately jump to such absurd conclusions based on a three minute phone call with the patient’s fiance? That’s ethically and morally wrong.
