i enjoy looking at old psych drug ads. wanna see some atrocious examples of corporate greed + medicalization of feminine angst? check out the old school Dexamyl ads. funny? I suppose. In the same way that one can offer up an uncomfortable laugh at the days of lobotomies...

while the legal system + mental health, inc. join forces to routinely force high dose neuroleptics on low(ish) status people, all over. moving on...

I kinda sorta have to say, though, that focusing on the ladies prevents a more thorough deconstruction. Even in the old ads for Benzedrine, etc., men -- sometimes men who had lost their (money making) role in society to depression or what have you -- make a more than occasional appearance.

good post. :-)
