Netflix Supports Harmful Pseudoscience

Gwyneth Paltrow's new Netflix series poses a "considerable health risk" to the public, NHS chief executive Simon Stevens has said


Throughout the six-part series, Paltrow enlists the help of doctors, researchers and alternative health practitioners to investigate practices ranging from "energy exorcisms" to the use of psychedelic drugs in the treatment of mental-health disorders.


"Goop has just popped up with a new TV series, in which Gwyneth Paltrow and her team test vampire facials and back a body worker, who claims to cure both acute psychological trauma and side-effects by simply moving his hands two inches above a customer's body," said the chief executive.

"Her brand peddles psychic vampire repellent, says chemical sunscreen is a bad idea, and promotes colonic irrigation and DIY coffee enema machines, despite them carrying considerable risks to health."

I did not know she was that kind of a kook... then again, I've never known a hellyweird personality who was actually sane.

75 US$.

Sold out.

This is why we can't have nice things.

Except twat candles. Apparently twat candles are nice.

Ok, I’m just going to say it. Why would you want anything to smell of vaginas that isn’t a vagina?
She battled through in every kind of tribulation,
She revelled in adventure and imagination.
She never listened to no hater, liar,
Breaking boundaries and chasing fire.
Oh, my my! Oh my, she flies!

Well, the question then follows: why even that?

Yeah, maybe “want to” is a bit of a stretch. Umm...why would you “want” anything to smell like a vagina? Like, would people also want a candle that smells like an eyeball? Or a pancreas? Eau de ballsack around the living room?

It doesn't really smell like a vagina. Scented candles that are supposed to smell like raspberries don't smell like raspberries, either.

Yeah, I mean surely it must smell like singed vagina... and how do they know? How many vaginas were singed in the making of that scented candle?
