"High Priestess Paltrow herself had descended from her bespoke, wooden vagina steaming throne to tweet about it among the mortals"

This is a great read for the prose alone:

The editors at GOOP find me “strangely confident” in my “assertion that putting a crystal in your vagina for pelvic-floor strengthening exercises would put you in danger of getting Toxic Shock Syndrome…A woman with no medical training who tells women to walk around with a jade egg in their vaginas all day, a jade egg that they can recharge with the energy of the moon no less, is the strangely confident one.

Yeah I read this. I really do despair about the rise of phony ‘experts’ and the suspicion and scorn heaped upon actual experts. What a fucking world.

It’s not really a rise, IMO. It’s always been there, it’s just more visible now especially when it seems - to those of us who accept expert opinion - so obvious as to what’s right.
