About the only time we are free from any form of advertising is when we are sound asleep in our comfy bedroom AND that’s only if we remember to turn off the TV before we drift off. Those damned subliminal, dreamlike commercial images in the mind of a slumbering consumer!
A buddy of mine is a janitor for building of medical suites which includes a couple of gynecologists practicing their craft. He not so professionally photographs unusual or funny things. He never takes pics of anything that would identify the doctor or the location of the offices.
So he sends me this picture of a gynecologist’s stirrups. Nothing too unusual about that right? Well look again. There is an Enfamil Expecta PreNatal Dietary Supplement written on the right stirrup! I can just see an anxious pregnant woman straddled in seat peering down at the advertisement waiting to get fingered…..I mean examined by OBGYN.
This is only mildly offensive and pales in comparison to some of the macabre accounts written by ZAHRA BARNES writing for Women’s Health. Apparently, she was slut shamed by her Gyno for not being in a monogamous relationship and the haughty, supercilious doctor refused to giver an IUD until she put on the engagement ring!
