“Unprofessionalism” has long been wielded in medicine to maintain a toxic culture that signals the “right” way to be as determined by those with the most power. This means policing women’s attire but also creating a culture of silence in political advocacy. #medkini #MedTwitter #
There is a strong current in medicine that is named explicitly in this paper to stay away from “controversial topics”. The problem is that as MDs we hold tremendous power and often also witness how injustice manifests in our society in a very real way. #medkini #MedTwitter
I’m disturbed by the methodology used here and the shaming of people for having personal lives. But I’m particularly terrified of the thought policing. Being a strong leader and advocate means speaking out sometimes against the popular current. #medkini #medtwitter
