Well, let me tell you, they can, and they have. Thanks to the NHS (which is apparently NOT in crisis if this nonsense is anything to go by).
So men, who don’t have cervixes, and who claim to be women, will be offered screening for something they don’t have, but women who do have breasts and cervixes (unless they have gender reassignment surgery) will not be offered screening for either?!
This is some convoluted thinking – and remember someone (a whole committee of people, I expect) was paid good money to think up this nonsense.
I quote from the Daily Mail article above: (Link) [emphasis added]
Women who believe they are men are not being offered routine NHS screening for breast and cervical cancer amid fears that it might offend them.
But astonishingly, an official guidebook states that men living as women are being invited for cervical smear tests – even though they do not have a cervix.
The advice, spelt out in a 24-page booklet published by Public Health England, was last night described as politically correct ‘lunacy’ which was putting lives at risk. […]
The PHE booklet, NHS Screening Programmes – Information For Trans People, ‘explains who we invite for screening’.
Trans people who register with their GP as being their birth sex will automatically be invited to screening appropriate to that.
But if they register as their ‘new’ gender, they will not be.
So if a trans man – who was born female – registers as male, he ‘won’t be invited for breast screening’ at 50.
Likewise, it tells those born as girls: ‘If you are registered with a GP as male, you won’t be invited for cervical screening.’
Most trans men do not have their wombs removed – only a small number have full sex-change surgery.
However, if a trans woman – born male – ‘registers as female, you will be routinely invited for cervical screening’.
Trans health adviser Aedan Wolton, who features in a related NHS Choices video, said smear tests could be uncomfortable for ‘trans masculine people’ – born female – as it challenged how they perceived themselves.
‘This is unsurprising as the experience is often a very gendered one; from the waiting room, to the words used during the smear, it is often a procedure designed for women,’ he writes in an accompanying blog.
Conservative MP David Davies, who has campaigned against Government plans to let people legally ‘self-identify’ their own gender, said: ‘This NHS effort to be politically correct is putting the lives of women who claim to be men at risk.’
It was also ‘wasting the time of men who claim to be women by offering them tests for organs they do not have’.
Why is the state – already cash-strapped, or so it tell us (whilst never running out of money for bombs, I might add) humouring these adults, these deluded people? This is beyond the scope of the state’s role, and is, surely for each individual to navigate with their health provider, but no – we must have guidance in place, we must have procedures, and we must play along with these tragic, suicide prone and wrong-thinking people who have rejected themselves. The state and the cash-strapped NHS is now enabling this charade to continue!
The comments from the public give some hope – even after moderating the comments the top few were these:
The tragedy of the trans movement is that it is driven by a belief that somehow “otherness” is what will make them feel better. That the grass is greener in the other gender, or that they even know what it means to feel what the other gender is feeling. That is wrong – you don’t know what a woman feels and changing how you look will never make you a woman. You are simply trying to modify your physical body to conform to something many Christians recognise as demonic oppression – it’s not who you really are.
You are not born into the wrong body because God does not make mistakes. Ultimately the rejection of self which trans people are suffering from is a form of body dysmorphia. They don’t like how they look because it doesn’t chime with how they feel inside – this phenomenon happens to people who go on to have a lot of plastic surgery, but we don’t say of those people that they are brave, or that they are becoming their true selves, we recognise their illness for what it is – a rejection of their true self.
The true self of the trans person can never be who they become – it is who they were born. Something which has gone awry in their thinking, in their feelings, and perhaps opened a door to demonic oppression as well has simply skewed their mirror – distorted how they see themselves and created an unfillable void of longing for something which God never intended them to have. Sadly, even post surgery, these people are at massively greater risk of suicide – because the fact is the grass is not greener in the other gender, and becoming something else doesn’t solve the desire to become something else – you were you to start with.
It is bad enough that these folks have a problem which medicine and surgery cannot solve, it is worse that the state is now spending money trying to align itself with such behaviour. We must, finally, recognise again the branch, which is Cultural Marxism (satanism by another name) which supports this fragmentation of society for its own dark aims. The root – the only enemy we have (and it’s the same enemy the trans folks have too) – is satan himself.
Resist the devil and he will flee from you, we are told in James 4:7 – this statement is as true for the Christian battling besetting sin as it is for the trans person considering changing sex.
God Bless you
