Trans Forms

There are many problems in society that are inevitable. There are others which are wholly of their own making. This is an example of the latter:

When the man arrived at the hospital with severe abdominal pains, a nurse didn’t consider it an emergency, noting that he was obese and had stopped taking blood pressure medicines. In reality, he was pregnant — a transgender man in labor that was about to end in a stillbirth.

“The point is not what’s happened to this particular individual but this is an example of what happens to transgender people interacting with the health care system,” said the lead author, Dr. Daphna Stroumsa of the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.

“He was rightly classified as a man” in the medical records and appears masculine, Stroumsa said. “But that classification threw us off from considering his actual medical needs.”

No, she was wrongly classified as a man, hence hospital staff assumed she couldn’t possibly be pregnant. I suspect Dr Stroumsa is treading on eggshells here.

Transgender people often run into problems getting gender-specific health care such as cervical cancer screening, birth control and prostate cancer screenings.

If they were honest about their sex, rather than insistent upon the entire world changing their systems to align with their personal preferences, these problems would not arise.

More needs to be done to improve medical awareness and recognition of diversity because “the consequences can be so dire, as this case shows,” Branstetter said.

So scarce resources should be diverted to cater for a statistically insignificant minority who wish to interact dishonestly with a system designed for tens of millions. Alternatively, we could just regain our sanity.

  1. Yes, but we won’t regain our sanity, at least not without some sort of upheaval first. Psychological disorders are nothing new but their elevation to official policy is a symptom of a civilisation that is deeply into decline. You can’t cure that with arguments. A psychopath can be contained and a schizophrenic can be treated but what do you do when an entire society has lost its mind?

  2. Stephan Molyneux is one of the few pundits correctly noting that the rise of unreason is the direct work of marxist subjectivist evil.

    The trannies are the real world equiv of Orwell’s 2+2=5 if the Party tells you it does. Men are women and vice versa if the scum of socialism –150 million murders so far and still rising–tell you they are. Under the threat of the stench of the jailhouse.

    If the individual tries to masquerade as what she is not then the medicals can be blamed only for denying the evidence of their senses and reason under the orders of scummy Marxism. One more crime at the left’s door.

  3. Triage is often a fraught process, isn’t it? This woman attended casualty, but she should have attended the maternity unit. Now they’ve sorted out the tragic stillbirth, she can go straight to the locked psychiatric ward until they can accept her at the surgical unit for compulsory sterilisation.

  4. Seeing as xe likes the default option of men putting their penis in xer vagina what is the point of “transitioning”?

  5. Is this the bearded lady with the gay boyfriend? Can’t be two of them, surely?

  6. Most likely consequence in our regulatory state is that everyone going to an emergency room will henceforth be required to strip naked at the door, and then sit around until they can be seen to. Because that way, medical staff would be able to tell if there might be other reasons for a male to be fat, without having to ask the patient embarrassing questions about what sex they are.

    It will be embarrassing for everyone else, of course, but we have to give priority to protecting the sensitivities of special people.

  7. Quick question, if anyone can answer. Didn’t the woman just tell the nurse that she was pregnant? Seems like the first thing to say.

  8. Didn’t the woman just tell the nurse that she was pregnant? Seems like the first thing to say.

    Except, perhaps, saying “I’m pregnant” would shatter the carefully constructed illusion she created about her existence.

  9. I’m confused. If this woman looked so manly, she surely must’ve been pumping herself with testosterone, so how did she get pregnant, or is that why the baby died? How can she ‘identify’ as a man then be happy to use her female body to get men? These trannies want it both ways: demand to be taken for what they pretend to be, yet now suddenly it’s an outrage if no one guesses what they actually are. Apparently everyone who interacts with her has to play a guessing game as to what to see her as at that moment. She’d could’ve told nurse but oh no, that’s beneath her. Imagine if the nurse had guessed correctly, the hysteria from the tranny at not being able to ‘pass’ would be like a banshee wailing from a bog, and I don’t doubt the nurse would’ve been sacked for not having inkloosiv valyooz and failing to make the patient feel ‘safe’.

  10. “. . . getting gender-specific health care . . .”

    Why do these people keep insisting that gender is a social construct and then turn around and say – no, its the same things as sex? They bitch to the rest of us when we do it. Tell one that ‘your sex determines your gender’ and they freak out. Yet here is someone who is, literally, saying ‘your gender determines your sex’.

    I’ve got no problem with the idea that gender is a social construct. You’re a woman who wants to live like a man – go for it. But pretending that you’re not female is where the insane delusion lies.

    Plus, the author of that article wants to ‘divert more resources’ to something that could have been instantly handled if the patient had, at the start, whispered to the admitting nurse that he was transgender.

  11. “Plus, the author of that article wants to ‘divert more resources’ to something that could have been instantly handled if the patient had, at the start, whispered to the admitting nurse that he was transgender.”

    Yeah but no but yeah but no.

    It’s not about a simple practical solution, it’s about respecting differences and feelings of people.

    Admittedly, the difference here is xe is insane, and normal people aren’t.

  12. Ironically, the patient requested gender-specific healthcare, when she needed sex-specific healthcare. Apparently, she could no longer tell them apart.

    It also goes to show what priority the baby’s health has, as opposed to more important things, such as maintaining the transgender facade.

    @Gavin Longmuir
    Excellent prognosis, but I’m not sure you’re going far enough. Will stripping naked correctly identify every post-op patient? Clearly, Universal Probing is necessary – otherwise how will the hospital ever be a safe space?
