Oh Canada, have you lost your collective, ever-lovin minds?And don’t shrug and say, “eh.” I want you to explain how the Canadian Cancer Society thought their new ad campaign to fight cervical cancer should be dominated by a transgender person who is a biological male and has no cervix. Look at the absurdity of the ad under the caption “Transwomen and Cervical Cancer Screening”. Maybe the insanity isn’t complete, as the site explains that the risk of cervical cancer for a person with no cervix is very low. Does very low mean 0? “If you’re a trans woman, you may not have given much thought to Pap tests and cervical cancer. And if you haven’t, that makes a fair amount of sense. After all, in order to get cervical cancer, you need to have a cervix.” Duh. But don’t be fooled by the seeming clarity of this statement. They go on to talk themselves out of it. “If, however, you’re a trans woman who has had bottom surgery to create a vagina (vaginoplasty) and possibly a cervix, there’s a very small risk that you can develop cancer in the tissues of your neo-vagina or neo-cervix. The risk depends on the type of surgery you had, the type of tissue used to create your vagina and cervix and your personal health history. Talk to your healthcare provider to figure out your specific cancer-screening needs as part of your overall pelvic health following surgery.”
A “neo-cervix” is a fake cervix. It’s not a working body part. It’s a representation of a cervix created on an operating table. By whom, a plastic surgeon? A sculptor specializing in clay? Calling it a “cervix” or even a “neo-cervix” doesn’t make it an actual cervix. And if it isn’t a cervix, can it contract cervical cancer? Maybe neo-cancer (is that a thing)? Telling the public that biological men can get “cervical cancer” on a part of their body that was sculpted to look like a cervix is ridiculous. And let’s not forget that Canada uses a single-payer health care system where long wait times cause many unnecessary deaths and suffering. How many actual women with female organs will now suffer because their “women’s” health screenings are clogged up by biological men who don’t need to get them?
In England, the public health department included biological men who pretend to be women in their cervical cancer screenings too if they identify as female. And if females identify as male, they will not be invited to be screened for cervical cancer despite having working cervixes. Almost makes Canada seem sane–I said almost! Women’s campaigner Laura Perrins told the Mail On Sunday: “We’ve now got to the point where state collusion with this transgender agenda is endangering the health of women. “It’s a ludicrous use of NHS resources to invite men for a cervical smear test, while it’s immoral and dangerous not to invite women.” Laura, a comment that sane could get you locked up in an
insane asylumpsychiatric hospital. Don’t worry, I’ll write to you.
