Joseph Epstein Known as Dr. Jill Biden ‘Kiddo’ — A Look At How Misogyny Can Affect Mental Health

“That lady deserves her revenge,” Michael Madsen’s character famously mentioned about protagonist Beatrix Kiddo within the Feminism motion movie Kill Invoice: Volume 2.

In a Wall Street Journal Op-Ed on Friday titled, “Is There a Doctor in the White House? Not if You Need an M.D.”, author Joseph Epstein, 83, penned an off-the-cuff cease-and-desist letter to First Girl-elect, Dr. Jill Biden, demanding that she cease utilizing her earned doctorate title. The rationale? Dr. Biden is just not an M.D., and therefore she should not feel an entitlement to her title, regardless of finishing a dissertation. Supporters of Dr. Biden were fast to level out that Mr. Epstein is neither an M.D. nor a Ph.D. Others questioned whether or not he was associated with the convicted sex offender, Jeffrey Epstein — he’s not.

After calling First Girl-elect Biden, “kiddo”, the octogenarian writer additionally cited an argument that Dr. Biden shouldn’t use her earned doctorate title as a result of, as a “smart man” as soon as advised Mr. Epstein, “Dr.” is reserved solely for those who have delivered a baby. What could come as a fantastic shock to Mr. Epstein is that Dr. Biden has, in reality, delivered a baby.

“Kiddo” quickly became a trending matter on Twitter Saturday afternoon, and plenty of users on-line started drawing comparisons to the fictional feminist character Beatrix Kiddo, performed by Uma Thurman. Whereas Thurman’s tales of production throughout Kill Invoice are plagued by the actress’s personal experiences of misogyny, her portrayal and character’s will for revenge are largely celebrated by girls empowered by the ruthless and metaphoric on-screen journey.

The outrage over the 83-year-old’s opinion piece stretched throughout genders, political events, and degree-holders. Ph.D.’s and medical docs across Twitter demanded retractions and surrounded Dr. Biden’s protection with their own tales of misogyny in academia. Even the dictionary had a few choice words for Mr. Epstein, tweeting out in regards to the Latin origins of the phrase, “physician”. Throughout his Op-Ed, Mr. Epstein waxes on about his emotions towards honorary levels — which Dr. Biden’s is just not.

However misogyny because it was accepted in previous decades is just not solely publicly offensive now, it has recently been linked to poor mental health in these engaging in it. Whereas many effects of sexism and gender aggressions on women’s mental health have been studied and reported on, men’s mental health as it relates to sexism has solely recently gained consideration. In 2016, Y. Joel Wong, Ph.D. of Indiana University Bloomington, revealed a study within the Journal of Counseling Psychology about the results of sexism on men’s mental health. “In general, people who conformed strongly to masculine norms tended to have poorer mental health and fewer favorable attitudes towards seeking psychological assist, although the results differed relying on particular sorts of masculine norms,” wrote Dr. Wong.

As of Saturday afternoon, the expression, “The doctor will see you now”, also started trending.
