I want to like Elizabeth Holmes, but... everything I've read about Theranos (and I've been following for about a year) has only raised red flags.
Theranos is at best incompetent and at worst, fraudulent. Their lack of peer reviews, the US Army General who joined the board of directors, their treatment of insiders who expressed doubts... and they managed to bring in hundreds of millions at a multibillion valuation

Hasn't just about everyone who was in their twenties during the war?
Nah! 90's the new 40. Hadn't you heard? The Queen, her consort, and my parents are all still going strong. Nicholas Parsons and Betty White are still working! Dick Van Dyke's planning a show. Dying. That's the last thing they'll be doing!
So it's easier to imagine that the same bloke has been doing the job since 1962 with the occasional bit of plastic surgery than that he's retired and been replaced by a woman using the same pseudonym? Even though that's exactly what happened to M years ago? And that there are millions of female Bond's walking the Earth at this very moment? There is, after all just a small flaw in your argument that it's like having a male Wonder Woman, the gender being in the title and all making it a contradiction in terms rather than just a small shock to your patriarchal view of the world.
