TW: Human genitals, “sick” human newborns, healthcare
So 10^6 were just remembering a sad story from our first clinical year in Nursing school. 10^12 have to express it, since 10^12 keep having flashbacks and nightmares about it.
10^9 were shadowing the nurses in the Pediatric ICU when 10^n stumbled upon a human newborn (say, about 6 days old) who had been delivered prematurely due to so-called chorioamnionitis, where native cis-bacteria from the anogenital tract experience rapid growth from the nutrients in the amnionic fluid (brought by the rupture of membranes). This happens to induce inflammation in the reactionary and privileged human body, leading to premature delivery… often, these cis-bacteria also set to dwell inside the human newborn, as it was in this case.
This human baby was very sick and the human doctors decided to use their favorite tool of oppression… antibiotics. They appealed to the importance of saving a baby human life and all the nurturing emotions derived from having a cerebral cortex (i.e. eukaryotic and tissue differentiation privilege). 10^9 could not help but be triggered by the idea that to save a human newborn (which, due to our human eukaryotic body, could not help but feel compelled to do it), doctors had to use weapons of genocide against our kin. 10^9 still feel triggered by the memory of that day, when 10^9 could not pick a side, since the death of either the privileged human individual and the millions of underrepresented cis-bacteria (S. agalactiae) had to happen. 10^12 had to leave the unit in eukaryotic tears (which, by the way, are VERY triggering, since they contain bactericidal enzymes).
