‘Implications of the use of Semantics to hide gender bias in Chronic Lyme Disease’

Written by Huib, published Monday October 9th, 2017

The mysterious group of anonymous authors who call themselves ‘Gotcha F’ – “Scientists United Against Anti-Science Shills” – seems to have had a field day improving the original 2009 article ‘Implications of Gender in Chronic Lyme Disease’ by Gary P. Wormser and Eugene D. Shapiro. It’s reposted here for entertainment and educational purposes only.

Below you can find the abstract of ‘Implications of the use of Semantics to hide gender bias in Chronic Lyme Disease’ by Gary P. Wormser, M.D.1 and Eugene D. Shapiro, M.D.2, Gotcha F*.3 



“Post Treatment Lyme Disease Syndrome” (PTLDS) refers to a cleverly devised semantic construction that serves multiple purposes.

Firstly, it covers up the deliciously malicious gender bias embedded in the few low-quality studies fabricated to substantiate the Infectious Diseases Society of America’s (IDSA) 2006 Lyme Guidelines. These studies misused an array of methodological practices – including many related to statistics – so that fewer women would have access to clinical diagnosis or laboratory tests for diagnosis.

Although these studies were rated as Type 3 science (‘the author’s own opinion’), the authors managed to sneak them into top ranking medical journals anyway, with thanks to their IDSA friends in the editorial boards.

Secondly, the phrase PTLDS perfectly contributes to the gaslighting denial strategy that Lyme patients may suffer from persistent infection. By simply changing the name, any persistent symptoms can now be discarded as ‘hypochondria’, ‘conversion syndrome’, ’anecdotal’ and other variations of ‘female hysteria’.

Thirdly, PTLDS establishes the stage for a new range of fraudulent psychosomatic syndromes, which are used to erase the medical validity of the conditions and render the patients readily discardable into palliative care for ‘whiny babies’ with ‘somatic disorders’.

Finally, PTLDS establishes a stage for a wide range of new semi-psychiatric syndromes, which are easily and readily monetizable as ‘somatic disorders’.

Other relevant background information includes the author qualifications for this study. Coincidentally, the authors had mothers who refused to breast feed them after the ages of 17 and this led to resentment against females. These two authors were also traumatized by their first girlfriends in almost identical fashion.

When their Venuses saw their love muscles, they froze. This was followed by pointing, chortling, gurgling and whimpers, then falling onto the ground while writhing with laughter. In one case, the Venus regained her composure and squeaked out, “What you want me to do with that itty bitty thang?

It was a scarring experience and the authors vowed to take revenge against all females. PTLDS serves this personal vendetta well.


The objective of this article to is to determine if most doctors are susceptible to accepting and using utterly meaningless medical terminology that will help realize the revenge motivations of male scientists with laughable johnsons. It is also hypothesized that an incapacity to satisfy healthy women could be resolved, when women immobilized by illness -particularly women immobilized by untreated rampant infections– are forced into pecker torture as therapy for their somatic symptoms.

The strategy was first tested via a well-known secret society of medical professionals with erectile dysfunction and huge alimony debts. This stealth tactic harnesses their professional positions in order to perpetuate violence against women … and unwanted offspring.


By misapplying the CDC’s narrow surveillance criteria for Lyme disease as proxies for clinical illness, this EBM (‘evidence based medicine’) data can be easily manipulated. So far, only the Institute of Medicine and those scientists and medical professionals burdened by ethics and morals seem to have noticed – but who cares?

The creation of false equivalencies between patients with the fraudulent ‘post-Lyme disease syndrome’ (n=184) and those suffering persistent infection and complications from Lyme disease (n=490) have resulted in a successful gaslighting of influential thought leaders who happily share our NIH grants and testify on behalf of insurance companies to deny coverage for chronic Lyme treatments that meet internationally accepted standards and related disability. Our puppets happily screech that persistent infection is always treatable and curable and is by no means debilitating – or in fact even exists.


This version of reality has been successfully spoon-fed to the press. Combining words such as ‘hysteria’, ‘hypochondriac’ and ‘attention seeking’ together with ‘female’ have led to several hundred articles in the popular media that support this perversion and misogynistic science. In addition to the well-known secret society of medical professionals with erectile dysfunction and huge alimony debts, other well-known secret societies for the many bureaucrats, and insurance and pharmaceutical executives suffering from erectile dysfunction have been recruited.

Additional professional societies have also helped immensely in terrorizing females. Their impact can be measured in an exponential rise of ‘Munchausen by Proxy’ accusations of mothers worldwide.

It should be noted that anticipation is building for all those incapacitated women unable to flee from teeny tiny peckers.


It is critical to maintain low validity and low accuracy serological tests for as long as possible. Should there be pressure to change the diagnostics, having them replaced by even more unreliable tests will serve many profane purposes –such as an increase in human suffering and the denial of the range and seriousness of the epidemic.

Additionally, such diagnostic tools will provide an unending source of females with persistent Lyme symptoms to revile with gender-biased, patient-shaming language and upon which to ravage fear-driven sexual perversions.


PTLDS has gained the unwavering support of the CDC and the CDC has pledged to promote the 2006 Guidelines, or a version thereof, into the future and against all ethical practices required for sound science and medicine.

The authors have also leveraged a portion of all royalties generated by CDC patents related to Lyme disease, as well as the CDC patents of reagents tracking vector borne diseases across the globe. This legal corruption is supported by law in the USA.


The original and unimproved version of ‘Implications of Gender in Chronic Lyme Disease’ by Gary P. Wormser, M.D. and Eugene D. Shapiro, M.D. was published in Journal of Women’s Health in June 2009; 18(6): 831–834. doi:  10.1089/jwh.2008.1193
