🤬Just some of the #ShitMyDoctorSays to LBT women and non-binary folk when they’re seeking healthcare. Really quite disturbing how many of these comments were made by mental health professionals😩
Thank you so much to everyone who’s been in touch this week. Between all the horrifying stories I’ve been sent and all the threads I’ve been tagged in, my rage levels have been pretty high for the last few days!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
📚GIVEAWAY! To celebrate the paperback publication of @candicebrathwaite’s brilliant I Am Not Your Baby Mother next week, @quercusbooks is giving one lucky #HystericalWomen reader the chance to win a copy!
🩺‘My doctor didn’t believe me. She said “sometimes things just hurt” and then tried to blame my weight.’⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Later this week I'm launching a new #HystericalWomen mini series, exploring some of the more under-represented experiences of mothers, trans and non-binary parents in the healthcare system ahead of Mothers' Day on 14 March.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌈 Sexism x Homophobia x Transphobia in healthcare⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

🌈’As a queer asylum seeker, I can’t be myself with healthcare professionals. They just don’t understand.’⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A reminder for anyone who needs to hear it ❤️
