    Not unless it was part of the standard blood test screening; thanks for tip, I'll ask my doctor about it during my follow-up in four months.

    She's a convenient wet dog for me to kick.
    But you think she is the narcissist?

    I think she's a little out there but certainly not single-handedly ruining the internet.
    I agree that the OP's mental state is of a much more toxic nature than that of the latest woman he has chosen to "kick like a wet dog", but still... Her claim makes as much sense as you claiming to feel oppressed because you're a black person in a white person's skin. Or you're a paraplegic in an able-bodied person's body.
    It would be beyond senseless to accept those claims on face value. It would be insulting to people who genuinely experience such hardships or the effects of discrimination arising therefrom. By co-opting the language of oppressed groups, she trivialises and distorts into grotesque parody what are legitimate grievances and inequities.

    Blogging about her body dysmorphia is one thing - but to claim to be some kind of victim of discrimination, because of a condition she has only ever imagined she has - no, I don't think empathy is called for here. I think she needs a reality check, and lots of therapy.

    It doesn't justify the OP's violently misogynistic language, though, by no means.

    But we all know that misogyny is celebrated here. In all its sparkling diversity. Despite an overwhelming majority voting that it not be tolerated. So I guess it's all good.

    I make no apologies for mine. It's not hidden. Nor is it "personal".

    of course. its an impersonal observation! i'm sure your background in feminism doesn't inform that opinion. Hey, I dont know. Maybe I'm wrong, but you say there was a majority vote was made and you still here saying it's not a personal opinion.
    Oh, its
    You
