I’ve always noticed the trend in Britney’s lyrics detailing someone trying to control her life, clearly we now know that it has been Jamie her father. I am wondering, now that we all know the truth… which ones stick out to you. The most recent one for me is the lyrics to “You Better Work Bitch” I have no doubt in my mind that Jamie literally said those exact words to Britney.
I am referring to the bold-letter bit in the following lyrics.
You see my problem is this
I'm dreaming away
Wishing that heroes, they truly exist
I cry, watching the days
Can't you see I'm a fool in so many ways
But to lose all my senses
That is just so typically me
Oh baby, oh
Oops, I did it again
I played with your heart, got lost in the game
Oh baby, baby
Oops, you think I'm in love
That I'm sent from above
I'm not that innocent
That issue is misogyny in medical care and other professions.How many women have been patronized, ignored, and abused by medical professionals?
Usually it's something like a doctor ignoring your pain, even if it is the most extreme pain of your life, because of course you are just a whiny, attention-seeking girl or woman with low pain tolerance and nothing is actually wrong with you.
Or it's a doctor doing shit like refusing to prescribe birth control pills to a teen or 20-something unless they get to stick their fingers in their vagina first, even though the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists stated 20 years ago that there is no medical need for pelvic exams to be performed on young women seeking hormonal birth control.
Or going to the ER while bleeding internally, and being made to wait 5 hours for a cat scan at the EMPTY ER, even though the blood is visually draining from your face and you are fainting when you stand, and your stomach is slowly growing more and more distended as the blood gathers in your abdominal cavity, because of course you are just a whiney girl who just has cramps or bad gas instead of, you know, a hemorrhagic ovarian cyst that is bleeding uncontrollably and will require emergency surgery and blood transfusions.
Or it's the psychiatrist who is re-diagnosing you with ADHD (re-diagnosing because the college you teach at doesn't believe that your ADHD diagnosis could be real and is making you get re-diagnosed by a second doctor) asking you how long you've been overweight before stating that there are cheaper diet pills than adderall, and saying that it is impossible to have ADHD and an advanced degree so you MUST be lying about one or the other.
Or it's the doctor who tries to make you pass a pulmonary functions test over and over again right after you spent a week on a ventilator, and doesn't believe that you can't blow the minimum force required, even though you also just spent over a month with one lung fully collapsed and you have a tumor pressing on a major nerve, causing all your muscles to spasm uncontrollably whenever you inhale deeply, and they refuse to prescribe you appropriate painkillers because "there's nothing wrong with her chest".
Or they strap you down to the bed when you have a ventilator in, and don't communicate to you what meds they are giving you, don't give you access to a call button, and don't give you a method of non-verbally communicating with the nurses and doctors... keep reading on reddit ➡
Since she has been so young, she has been abused, stalked, harrassed, manipulated, degraded - dehumanized! - and sexually, financially as well as emotionally exploited - see my post on her a while ago - and people say this is the worst she ever had to go through.
Why is it that the instance where this woman's freedom is popularly discussed is when it comes to her reproductive rights? Obviously this is horrific, but her body autonomy and privacy have been disrespected for her whole life time - and it was just as bad back then.
E: Oof. This blew up. I completely forgot about the post - sorry to everyone who waited for me to engage in the conversation. I'm glad there is one anyway and thank you to those who participated!
I'm also not insinuating that people who voiced their concern don't genuinely care. It's still disheartening, though - Imo she deserved freedom a long time ago, even if she never wanted to have kids.
She’s really been going through the mud for so long. Human to human I feel so bad and hope it all works out for her. That’s all.
