I Found Feminists in OrthodonticsAugust 6, 2013
I’ve started on the damn elastics in my ortho treatment (Yay.. kill me)
I happened to notice some prominent feminists on the packaging.
First they prescribed me the really strong, single elastics i was supposed to loop around each individual button/hook in my mouth. A total of 3 per side, very daunting. Super tought, strong, hyper masculine and impossible to deal with, as it gave no leeway and was extremely stubborn.
Then i noticed Amanda Marcotte on the package and it all made sense.
So i went back to the doc and said:
“Yo, it’s too bloody time consuming and damn well near impossible to loop all these single elastics. It’s like fighting with a brick wall, you know you’re going to lose. Do you have anything softer, more pliable? Something that will stretch out easier and cover a wider area, so i can do all 3 on each side with one loop?”
Sure enough they had a solution.
They gave me the Lindy West treatment.
You may now return your tray tables to the down and unlocked position and are now free to move about the cabin.
