Anatomy for beginners

Hold up! Before you read on, please read this...

This post was published more than 14 years ago

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. It can be interesting to see how views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have, to put it mildly, mellowed.

I'm not a believer in brushing the past under the carpet. I've written some offensive rubbish on here in the past: deleting it and pretending it never happened doesn't change that. I hope that stumbling across something that's 14 years old won't offend anyone anew, because I hope that people can understand that what I thought and felt and wrote about then is probably very different to what I think and feel and wrote about now. It's a relic of an (albeit recent) bygone era.

So, given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views may well have changed in the last 14 years. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find utterly cringeworthy today.
  • This post might use words or language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate, offensive, embarrassing, or all three.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken, and embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

Anatomy for beginners

This looks like it should be an excellent show. I’ll certainly be watching, though my housemate did comment that it was slightly unfortunate that I felt the need to watch a ‘Beginners’ show just days after I did my anatomy exam.

I’m not entirely sure on the ethical side of this exercise, but things that increase the general public’s knowledge of health issues are generally positive, and provided the cadaver was donated with informed consent about the TV dissection, then I think it would be difficult to pick any particularly strong ethical arguments out of the situation. Though I admit that I’m not entirely familiar with the background of the programme, so I can’t say that I’m entirely comfortable with the concept. But we’ll see. The show itself should be great.
