If a politician or other ostentatious do-gooder wants to make a point, it is pretty convenient and routine to get a bunch of doctors to show up in their cute little white coats with their fun little stethoscopes hanging around their necks for a photo op to support …whatever.
This isn’t a political site, and I’m not talking about politics. But would you like to prevent nuclear war? These numbskulls can help. Are you upset at the rising sea levels and the dead polar bears, and all the unfairness that climate change brings to the Third World? Get in touch with these fools. Doofus doctors are even weighing in on the topic du jour. Having allowed medicine to become the vehicle to push every fashionable topic has left doctors with the sort of credibility one associates with an Oscars acceptance speech.
So how do doctors advocate on actual medical topics? Well in the U.K., they are now gender bending their medical advice to take care of patients’ emotions, at the expense of their bodies. “A 24-page booklet published by Public Health England called ‘Information for trans people'” clears it up: “men” born female will not get routine breast exams at 50, but “women” born male will be offered pap smears for the cervixes they don’t have (but should have had, dammit!).
Men who have since decided they are women will also not get the routine abdominal aortic aneurysm screenings that the other blokes in the pub get at age 65. Invitations for routine screenings are sent based on the patient’s “registered” (or should I say, “imagined”) sex.
It’s an easy prediction that this stupidity is headed our way. Doctors who are increasingly in thrall to the government – meaning mob whim – are going to get people killed to avoid offending them.
(and if you don’t get the reference, it’s from “Monty Python’s Life of Brian”)
