The Feminist Breeder’s been punk’d


Your laugh for the day.

I’m touched that someone spent $30 (non-refundable) to reserve a place for me!

Should I go?

    What will Gina do if she can’t ban people that disagree with her? Incite a harpie riot?

      How to make money by blogging?

    Now, now, we all know that if Dr. Amy did actually go, and TFB did actually let her in, that Dr. A would be polite and respectful during the actual lectures/discussions. Because that would be the right thing to do, and because it would infuriate all the people who expect her to behave like an ogre.

    I think it’s a real shame TFB has no sense of humor.

    (I also think it’s amazing that she’s posting the names of people attending on her Twitter stream. Way to let the world know those women will be out of the house that weekend.)

    I’m considering paying for your flight. Will anyone chip in for the lodging?

    You should definitely go! That’s a great opportunity to influence people and show your intentions.

      That’s a great opportunity to influence people and show your intentions.

      No, it wouldn’t be. Because there is no way in hell TFB would let Dr Amy say anything, or even sit in the friggin audience. She’d be calling security to have her removed from the venue. Dr Amy’s mere presence would cause TFB to have a total meltdown.

      Oh sure, it would be a great opportunity to complete disrupt the whole thing (the TFB would probably cancel it because she is too distraught), which I would think would be funny, but it wouldn’t influence anyone in a positive fashion. All they’d do is call Dr Amy more names and go on about how meen she is to attack the TFB like that.

    Yes (go in disguise if you have to – we’ll all help come up with something inconspicuous but sufficiently hippy)!!! We want a blow-by-blow account with photos! 😉

    It really has been an epic week for you, Dr. Amy. First causing VBACfacts to implode, and now this.

        There really needs to be a verb for it. It’s an actual phenomenon. Jan Tritten’s page, too.

    You just know that it was Gina who registered you. Perfect opportunity for her to play victim to the bully Dr. Amy who is going to invade her retreat. The pitchforks will be waved, there will be talk of bouncers, etc. Gina could not pass up an opportunity for the type of attention this affords her. Her minions hate you, but not enough to spend $30!

      Oh no, I think it was one of Dr. Amy’s “minions” who did this. Just to give us all a few holiday weekend lulz. Thanks, anonymous internet person.

    Well, you ARE their favorite kind of doctor; a “noninterventionist.” Your c-section rate is zero — using their math, that’s almost practically negative! That’s how non-interventionist you are! The only way you could be a better, more non- interventionist doctor would be to retire from medicine completely and go from practicing medicine in one of those nasty teaching hospitals to where the REAL action is, obstetrical advice-wise– the internet! Oh, wait — you DID that! So, not only should they invite you, they should totally ask you to keynote! WOULD you? ZOMG, squeeeeeee! (FTR, that’s sarcasm. And I did not do this, but now I kind of wish I had.)

    The cognitive dissonance of the phrase “feminist breeder” is making me cross-eyed.

    Is the agenda for the retreat listed anywhere? If Dr. Amy did show up, how could Gina handle that? There’s no delete button for actual 3d humans.

    Fan-freaking-tastic! Yes, you should go. And then you should arrange some way to have it live-streamed so we can all see what a face-to-face verbal paddling of TFB looks like. 😉

      lol…maybe there should be a check mark on the registration form for Dr. Amy followers. Then give us all our own section. 😉 We could reserve a room at the end of the conference to refute whatever the conference was about.

    Do it! That would be awesome. But we all know she’s not going to allow you to attend (she better return that $30 to whoever spent it by the way when she does say no to you I don’t care that it’s non-refundable). But you should have your own feminist retreat at the same location and the same weekend (assuming there’s space). Because no way in hell she’ll actually allow you to attend hers. So next best thing.

      Hey maybe you can go and sit outside, and offered to talk to anybody who wants. It should be a big surprise that you’re in person demeanor is so soft and friendly!

        She should dress the part though. In robes and maybe a crown of flowers so she fits in. Barefoot I hear is best too. That might really throw them for a loop and perhaps they’ll listen to you more.

          “crown of flowers”
          Anyone remember the (completely staged) pic of the lactivist nursing her baby in front of an Enfamil table at a conference somewhere? I think Dr. Amy should use that as her model when deciding on her outfit for the conference. 😛

    Absolutely. then you can provide real education from a different point of view. I don’t know a realistic one.

      You DOUBLE DOG DARED her?!? Well that settles it Dr. A. Now you HAVE to go!!

      Seriously though, if you do go to this cesspool of ignorance, I look forward to many detailed blog posts.

      Now it’s a point of honor. Gotta take the dare, or your Birth Goddess title gets revoked.
