You know, I sometimes agree with Dr. Amy. Most of the time I do not, and this time I don't agree by a long shot and her comparisson is so far off I can hardly see straight.
She says, "In the case of the pro-anorexia community purported empowerment comes from resisting the natural urge to eat in response to need. In the case of the NCB community purported empowerment comes from resisting the natural urge to seek pain relief in response to severe pain."
I don't take pain relief because I don't feel like the pain of laboring and birthing warrant the risks of the medications, and the pain isn't going to last forever. I don't even HAVE a natural urge to seek pain relief. She uses such blanket statements. She is the extreme or her movement just like we have extremes among NCB advocates. I can't understand why she doesn't see that.
I also kind of think she might be devoid of any humanity...but that's another topic, I'm sure.
