I realize I have gained a lot of new followers over the past year, so everyone might not be familiar with my body of work. So, allow me to share some of my pieces. 1/10
I was the person who alerted the media to the fact that @RealBenCarson had his name on a paper that used aborted fetuses despite him saying abortion was never needed for research https://drjengunter.com/2015/08/12/ben-carson-did-research-on-17-week-fetal-tissue/ … 2/10
I was the person who called out @realDonaldTrump’s scammy as shit medical letter when the press gave it a pass https://drjengunter.com/2016/08/16/im-a-doctor-these-are-the-things-i-find-concerning-with-trumps-medical-letter/ … 3/10
I was the first to call out @GwynethPaltrow and @goop for giving an AIDS denialist a platform. Think @goop is so benign? They are a gateway to medical conspiracy theories. https://drjengunter.com/2017/12/01/gwyneth-paltrow-to-feature-doctor-who-thinks-aids-is-a-big-pharma-scam-at-in-goop-health/ … 4/10
I write a lot about vaginal shaming and the terrible consequences https://www.nytimes.com/2017/11/16/style/my-vagina-is-terrific-your-opinion-about-it-is-not.html?smid=nytcore-ios-share … 5/10
I mined my person pain over the death of my son at birth to help people understand what it is like to be in the saddest sorority https://www.nytimes.com/2017/12/21/style/perinatal-death-stillbirth-childbirth.html?smid=nytcore-ios-share … 6/10
I spoke up publicly about @realDonaldTrump and the @gop’s lies about infanticide. I was trolled mercilessly my forced birther publications for this, I knew they would buy it didn’t deter me https://www.nytimes.com/2019/02/26/opinion/born-alive-abortion.html?smid=nytcore-ios-share … 7/10
I wrote about the lie that “maternal health exemptions” mean anything in abortion legislation https://www.nytimes.com/2019/05/20/opinion/abortion-laws.html?smid=nytcore-ios-share … 8/10
And a book called The Vagina Bible and a TV show Jensplaining. Yes, I wrote about jade eggs (I’ve seen women harmed), but I have a large body of work and I am damn proud of ALL of it. 9/10
Professors tell me they have assigned my work as required reading! Just today someone told me they quoted The Vagina Bible in a paper. And people tell me my writing helps them get better medical care. So I’m good with me and my mission of empowerment through facts and fun! 10/0
