Netflix’s new partnership with Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop brand is a win for pseudoscience – NBC News

I’ve never been a fan of Gwyneth Paltrow. I’ve never been a fan of celebrities cashing in on their celebrity through fake or untrustworthy claims regarding products or even more importantly your health. And so here we are at the Nexus of both with Netflix being vehicle where this fake science is promoted.

People look up to celebrities, people should not look up to celebrities. And yes they do. I don’t understand why someone who has a large media presence or an online following should be looked upon as having some special knowledge. They don’t, they are humans and they put on their pants, if they put them on themselves, one leg at a time. so I call upon Netflix to make sure that’s it just yours and especially the viewers of this Gwyneth Paltrow pseudoscience goop is made aware that this is not real science and there should be a Giant disclaimer. The way Netflix is going of late I don’t think they will.

And most of all, Gwyneth Paltrow, please get a life.

Trans advocacy groups protest in front of White House – TheHill

What I find so infuriating about this Administration is it’s lack of continuity. For example, I am not a great believer in how Pope Francis things the world should be. But his views are consistent. He is pro-life, but pro-life doesn’t end at conception and should follow the child through his or her education and then into adulthood. Pro-life memes being against capital punishment. So, why am I saying this now? I don’t believe and many of the things the Pope says but at least he’s consistent.

This is a White House that does not believe in science. It is looking upon our country becoming a giant sewer thanks to their deregulations. Look at Florida, my former home, with several shades of different Tides hitting both seawater and inner canals. This white house doesn’t believe in climate change. And yet when it’s convenient the White House pulls up fake science. There are no genetic markers for transgender or homosexuality or sexual orientation based tests. And now they want to put into law that if you want to be considered a different sex you must take a genetic test to prove that. What hogwash. I am so tired of listening to this white house and how they are devolving our country. I won’t say that cretin’s name anymore.
