A very strangio, nonsensical argument to make, considering she’s a lawyer.

Quite bonkers to compare the two interventions.

Do you feel sometimes that bad arguments are INFURIATING beyond measure? Even more than stupidity sometimes.

This woman is probably not stupid. More likely she thinks everyone else is.

She's not engaging with what the researcher actually said. The researcher said there should be more long-term follow-up after top surgery. There already are and were long-term follow-ups of knee surgery, which would include the patients' subjective opinions of their satisfaction with the surgery. The results of which doctors will use for future medical decision-making and patient information. There doesn't need to be a NYT article about something that's already working correctly.

If everyone is as happy with the surgery as Strangio suggests, she should welcome studies that would get the evidence out there.
