I was encouraged that the posts reported the stats of women who decided that HRT was not for them, who had decided, as intelligent women, that they were not sick and didn't need medicine. This blog also claims a concomitant drop in breast cancer. And that's all good.
This site is powered by Google ads, and of course, this is wonderful except--- the most prominent words in the ads are: symptoms, suffering, fracture, osteoporosis. So there is still that lingering pathological subtext--- direct contradiction to the blog posts.
Do you see my problem?
A blog, a website, or an online magazine called FiercelySEXYSMART.com. The writers are women 40 and older who in addition to addressing the fallacies and the myths of older, powerful, smart women, reframe the images as well through essays and blog posts on education, politics, sex, and culture.
The reader wouldn't find a single solitary mention ad for a patch, a pill or a creme. In fact the whole idea of "illness" and pathology would be noticeable in its absence. Why? We're already inundated with this information. I'm not saying it isn't useful. I'm saying, enough already.
