Yesterday I published a post titled "The sheer, mind-boggling stupidity is overwhelming". In it, I described a transgender whatever who was upset that the results of its genetic analysis revealed its chromosomes, thereby definitively proving that it was male, whether it liked that or not.
The United Kingdom’s grasp of gender theory will likely have real health consequences for both the transgendered population and those living with their biological gender.
Gender transitioning men, who identify as female, will be invited by the United Kingdom’s National Health Service to take tests for cervical cancer – despite not having a cervix.
Further, women who identify as male will not be offered routine anti-cancer check ups for their breasts and cervix.
Ironically, biological females who are transitioning to become men would be ineligible for these screenings, as they would be registered as male.
A study recently found that transgender men were at a higher risk of breast cancer in comparison to the general male population.
Another test that will be withheld from men identifying as women – as they would be registered as woman – is for a blood vessel defect called an abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA).
From the age of 65 and up, men are invited to attend an ultrasound scan to search for AAA.
AAAs are six times more common in older men than women.
If left untreated, AAA can lead to a fatal hemorrhage.
It is unclear why the the NHS is refusing this service to those who are biologically male, and could possibly die if left untreated.

I had to sit, jaw open in dumbfounded astonishment, staring at the screen for a moment or two after reading that. For medical professionals to pander to those with clear and obvious psychiatric and/or psychological delusions, by pretending that they're not what Mother Nature made them to be, and therefore either offering completely inappropriate treatments, or refusing fully appropriate ones . . . verily, the mind doth boggle.
Speaking of the pap smears referenced in the article, Mr. Bussjaeger noted: "I'd kinda like to be out in the hallway, waiting for the screams when they shove that swab up 'her' penis." Tell you what, buddy: I'll join you there, with beer and a recording device. It can register for posterity the patient's wails, our (frequent) opening of beer cans, and our increasingly hysterical laughter. If we're lucky, the next room along will be used for prostate gland examinations of patients who don't have them (preferably using a pre-iced metal speculum... after all, frigidity is a medical condition, right?). The resulting cacophony should make a great blog article for both of us!
