22. This distinction needs to be buried.

Is mental Health not a part of medical care?

We separate biochemical imbalances in the brain as somehow NOT medical, yet biochemical imbalance in the body (i.e., potassium/sodium imbalance) IS medical.

The narcissistic arrogance required to belittle a multiple gold medal winning athlete is staggering, and indicative of patriarchal demand to be entertained and distracted. Her critics are more concerned with themselves and how her choice might diminish their viewing experience. (I'll address the beach volleyball T&A requirements in a different post.)

Mental Health is Medical Health, too. She was not physically able to perform. When her critics are able to pull off double twisting piked somersaults in midair and stick their landings in high pressure competition, then they can still STFU.

Simone Biles had already bested the world and proved to herself she is the G.O.A.T. She owes her critics nothing. Read that again.
