Insanity

There is no other word for this.

Women who identify as men are not being routinely offered potentially life saving NHS screening for breast and cervical cancer, amid fears it might offend them it is claimed.

However men living as women are being invited for cervical smear tests even though they do not have a cervix, an official guidebook states.

  1. I really believe that this nonsense was an important factor in the Trump election.

  2. #1 … Yep. (In my best Hank Hill voice.)

  3. Some of the article comments are hilarious; sample:

    Tom Polson
    My brother has declared himself perfect as far as women are concerned, that is. He says he’s a lesbian trapped in a man’s body.

    Ben F Mcdonald
    Tom Polson : heterosexual male that loves women. sounds normal unless i’m getting confused here.

    Bill Bentnickel
    Ben F Mcdonald : “female” … Don’t be disrespectful. I suggest immediate wokenness training if you hope to survive this.

    Dagney Sagan
    Tom Polson : My husband has been saying that for years.

  4. Actually, I believe the original word is “Hysteria”, as the root cause of mental instability was traced to the “Wandering womb” affecting normal mental processes.

  5. Wait…if they no longer are women, but men, the standard of care has changed. Men are not routinely screened for breast cancer…the cervix thing makes no sense at all

  6. I’m going to imitate a democrat and say, in all sincerity, this right here is how PEOPLE WILL DIE.

  7. @6 😀

    TOTALLY. WILL. LITERALLY. DIE.

  8. The word I would use is Karma.

  9. Here’s an interesting idea:

    Would you give a reflex test to someone who lost their leg?

    No. Why? Because they don’t have a leg to administer the test on.

    In fact, the person might be offended if you tried, for reminding them that they don’t have a leg.

    Anyone who would be offended for doing exams or not doing exams on body parts the actual have or don’t have are utterly insane.

    Yes, insane.

  10. Men are not routinely screened for breast cancer

    Actually, though rare it is still a good thing to look for (link).

    No. Why? Because they don’t have a leg to administer the test on.

    In Medical School, there were exactly two acceptable excuses to not perform a Digital Rectal Exam:

    1) no rectum
    2) no digit

    (Suspected bacterial prostatitis is a legit reason as well)

  12. I’m actually ok with this. If they want to delude themselves to death, it’s not my problem.

    Comment by J- — January 23, 2018 @ 5:55 pm - January 23, 2018

  13. Remember that the NHS has cancelled non-urgent procedures and I’ve read of at least one person dying because NHS ran out of ambulances.

    But they have time and money for this nonsense.

  14. @9 I think we should have a law that forbids banks to deny credit cards and consumer loans to homeless illegal aliens so that no risk is taken to offend the latter.

    Banks could always back those social justice-mandated loans by collecting extra fees on the savings accounts of legal residents and citizens, couldn’t they?

    While we’re at it, maybe it’s time to draft an Anti-Offense to Protected Groups Amendment to the Constitution, no?

  15. “However men living as women are being invited for cervical smear tests even though they do not have a cervix, an official guidebook states.”

    Maybe, they should do prostate exams on women living as men; wouldn’t want them to feel left out.

  16. Poor UK.

    God save the Queen.

    Well. Er, I guess.

  17. A friend-of-a-friend is a small-town family physician on Newfoundland Island. Everyone who can afford it gets supplemental health insurance that will pay to have you flown to Boston or Portland ME for complicated or delicate health-care, and re-reimburse the local doctor for “better” treatment and tests. The wait for the Guv’mint Health Service to fly you to Toronto is literally “lethal”. While not officially-rationing, they do score your needs against a “established mean” and if your score isn’t high-enough, well… Part of that score is how much your needs skews the revised-mean up-or-down.

    When the Provincial Premier needed cardiac-care, they immediately flew him to Boston for extensive treatment. …Without any public outcry or disapproval either.

    And the Progs and national socialists want to import THAT here…

    The Canadian healthcare system is predicated on a provincial system, both in funding and administration. So that if one is fortunate enough to live in energy-rich Alberta, the standard of care isn’t too bad, all things considered. (The scoring system also works better due to the amount of dependents on the system versus the amount available to spend—someone with a lower score is more likely to receive treatment, and quicker.) However, if you are unfortunate enough to live in people-rich Ontario, the stats don’t work in your favor.

    One of my favorite Twitter Blue Checks tweeted a stat after Uncle Bernie’s “Medicare For All’ presentation the other night which stated that 63,000 Canadians left the country for medical treatment in 2016, most to the US. A presumed Bernie Bro quickly responded with a stat that mentioned one million US citizens leave the US for medical care. Yet, in statistical terms, that’s not too bad, particularly when we were told that the Affordable Care Act was going to take care of all the nation’s health care ills and thus no one should have to leave the US for care.

    What proponents of both the Canadian and UK healthcare models don’t seem to realize is that the population differences between either and the USA are vastly different. Almost everything will work (to some degree) if the model is small enough. But any problems which happen on the scale of the UK or Canadian system are bound to be amplified if exported to the US. That alone should give some pause before attempting to import models from other countries.

    Indeed. My grandfather died of breast cancer.

  20. @18

    The Bernie Bros don’t care about educating themselves economics, let alone greater pure losses due to systemic / bureaucratic overhead combined with scale effects.

    If America had been wise enough to stay away from the disastrous scheme of putting insurance companies in the same bed as bureaucrats as unavoidable govt-mandated middlemen between supply and demand, this kind of chart wouldn’t be around to bother anyone or for the Left’s crass ignorance to shine brighter than ever:

    And even assuming they’d be remotely interested in looking at these symptoms, the left’s answer, of course, will be to get rid of insurance companies replacing them with a gigantic DMV a la NHS, etc — at an even funnier scale (for, aging population, ever increasing # of phys. performances, etc)

  21. RSG and Sathar, no intended, and I am aware that men can and do get breast cancer. A local newsman did a story on himself from start to finish of his treatment several years ago. And I am sorry about your grandfather, RSG. However, the point I was making was that routine breast exams are not part of the male standard of care, and if a woman wants to be a man, then her standard of care should also change to the male standard of care.
