The focus this time: These people make Dr. Frankenstein seem sensible
First, a little mood music:
“Why would medical school professors apologize for referring to a patient’s biological sex? Because, Lauren explains, in the context of her medical school “acknowledging biological sex can be considered transphobic.”
“When sex is acknowledged by her instructors, it’s sometimes portrayed as a social construct, not a biological reality, she says. In a lecture on transgender health, an instructor declared: “Biological sex, sexual orientation, and gender are all constructs. These are all constructs that we have created.”
“In other words, some of the country’s top medical students are being taught that humans are not, like other mammals, a species comprising two sexes. The notion of sex, they are learning, is just a man-made creation.
“The idea that sex is a social construct may be interesting debate fodder in an anthropology class. But in medicine, the material reality of sex really matters, in part because the refusal to acknowledge sex can have devastating effects on patient outcomes.”
“It is astonishing how the transgender moral panic has swept actual science aside. The American Medical Association Board of Trustees (BOT) just passed a resolution that will have the AMA lobbying to end the designation of sex in all future birth certificates.
“The resolution distinguishes between the ‘Certificate of Live Birth’ — which is used for simple data collection and vital statistics — and a ‘Birth Certificate,’ which is proof for the born person that he or she was indeed born. (Can I still say that?)
“The AMA wants biological sex recorded for the former as a private matter of record-keeping. But it will now urge that birth-certificate forms carry no designation of sex to prevent future discrimination based on identity and to allow the person to decide later what sex they really are.”
Even the “objective” medical journals are admitting that so-called “gender affirming surgery” can lead to people regretting having their genitalia mutilated.
“The literature is inconsistent regarding etiology and classification of regret following GAS. Of the 154 surgeons queried, 30% responded to our survey. Cumulatively, these respondents treated between 18,125 and 27,325 individuals. Fifty-seven percent of surgeons encountered at least one patient who expressed regret, with a total of 62 patients expressing regret (0.2-0.3%). Etiologies of regret were varied and classified as either: (I) true gender-related regret (42%), (II) social regret (37%), and (III) medical regret (8%). The surgeons’ experience with patient regret and request for reversal was consistent with the existing literature.”
The “low number” of patients who experienced regret are only those reported by the doctors who sliced them up, mostly soon after surgery, and not those who took a little longer living as if they were the opposite sex to realize just how much they f**ked up.
