Trans Patient Claims Discrimination After Hospital Requires Pregnancy Test Before Surgery

Trans Patient Claims Discrimination After Hospital Requires Pregnancy Test Before Surgery

Do the majority of trans people not understand that just because they “identify” as whatever sex doesn’t change their biological reality (assuming, in pertinent cases, they’ve not received surgical altercations to their bodies)?

I keep seeing these kinds of news stories periodically.

Democrats, the left, many liberals, and trans-activists, do not “follow the science.”

If they did, this insanity would not exist.

If you were born a biological female but want to play-act that you’re a man, be my guest (so long as it doesn’t infringe on my rights in any way), but, to receive proper medical care, your physician(s) and other medical staff will have to know your biological sex – for your own safety.

Biological men and biological women don’t always have the same symptoms or respond to certain medications in the same way.

I’m not sure how much, if any, of the perceived rudeness by hospital staff mentioned in these news reports, was intentional. If it was intentional, that is not caring or professional.

It’s going to be interesting in another 20 years, when a lot of these younger people who adamantly now identify as the opposite sex and insist every one else play along later admit they were wrong – and express regret and embarrassment over how stupidly they behaved when younger over all this.

Hospital says care was ‘medically appropriate and compassionate’

A trans-identified biological female alleges that a hospital in New York discriminated by requiring a pregnancy test even though the patient identifies as a male and says the nurses did not use preferred pronouns.

Trey Lowery, who identifies as a male and underwent bariatric sleeve surgery at Highland Hospital in Rochester in July, is threatening to file a lawsuit after experiencing “discrimination” at the healthcare facility.

Lowery expressed outrage after being asked to take a pregnancy test. As an affiliate of the University of Rochester Medical Center, Highland Hospital requires all biological females with female reproductive organs to undergo pregnancy testing before any surgery involving anesthesia regardless of whether they identify as female.

Speaking with the local ABC affiliate WHAM, Lowery recalled that a nurse asked for a pregnancy test to be taken before surgery.

Couple Die of Covid, Leaving Behind Newborn and Five Children

Couple Die of Covid, Leaving Behind Newborn and Five Children

Such a sad story. Condolences to the family and friends of the couple.

For those of you who may visit this blog every so often – especially if you’re an unmarried adult who wanted to marry (and maybe have children too), but you find yourself single (and childless) into your 30s, 40s, or older, I think news stories like this one are eye opening.

Just because some people do marry (and have children) doesn’t mean it’s a happy life or a happy ending.

I have more news stories on my blog (see “Related Posts” below) of people who died shortly before or right after getting married! I have news stories of people who died in a car crash on their way to their own wedding and so on.

Here’s a couple who each died shortly within one another, not long after the wife gave birth.

I feel particularly bad for the children – to grow up with neither parent. 

And really, Christians who “hype” marriage (and parenthood) way too much, to the point they shame singles for being single and not having children – such as Al Mohler – need to stop doing so (as they sometimes do) by falsely painting this picture of “most to all of your problems in life will be solved if you just marry and have children.”

Daniel Macias wanted to wait until he and his wife, Davy Macias, recovered from the coronavirus before naming their newborn daughter.

But about a week after giving birth, the mother died of Covid-19 complications. And nearly two weeks after she died, so did her husband.

Davy Macias was 37, and Daniel Macias was 39, Terri Serey, Davy Macias’ sister-in-law, told NBC News on Monday.

The couple, both of Yucaipa, California, left behind five children, ages 7, 5, 3, 2 and 3 weeks.

Sept 10, 2021

A crop of companies aims to make sperm-freezing a routine procedure for young men, as employers start to offer it as a benefit.

[Article opens with the example of a 39 year old man who had medical issues, so he got some of his sperm frozen]

…. For decades, the conversation about waning fertility has been focused largely on women.

… Recently, a small group of biotech startups have hatched, dedicated to what they say is an underserved market: male fertility.

Armed with recent scientific research suggesting that the quality of sperm is declining in the West, the companies are trying to make sperm-freezing a routine procedure for young, healthy men,  one covered by health insurance and free of stigma.

Designer Baby Revolution: Can We Outlaw Sexual Reproduction?

(Link): Designer Baby Revolution: Can We Outlaw Sexual Reproduction?

By Cameron English — August 30, 2021

Could governments mandate that we quit reproducing sexually for the sake of public health? It sounds outlandish, but there are prominent thinkers making that case.

Their argument is superficially plausible but ultimately absurd, both for scientific and ethical reasons.


…. However this particular dispute ends, the opposing sides and the underlying point of contention, who controls your body, aren’t going anywhere soon.

The reason is that advances in health care are enabling physicians to identify the genetic underpinnings of serious diseases and take preventative measures before their patients suffer the debilitating effects of these disorders.

Harvard Professor Who Refuses to Use the Term ‘Pregnant People’ and Insists on ‘Woman’ is accused of Transphobia By Her Woke Ivy League Colleague

Harvard Professor Who Refuses to Use the Term ‘Pregnant People’ and Insists on ‘Woman’ is accused of Transphobia By Her Woke Ivy League Colleague

If an adult born of one biological sex later in life wants to pretend to be of the other biological sex, I don’t entirely care (so long as it does not negatively impact me or other people), but I DO NOT support this idiocy, where facts of life, like biological sex, are denied!

People should not be hounded online, or banned or suspended from social media, or receive hate mail from people, or face being fired from their job, for knowing and saying that most humans are born one sex or the other, or for stating or acknowledging truisms, such as men don’t get periods or get pregnant, and women don’t have testicles or penises.

Woke-ism does not respect science – but then, I suppose the idiots on the left consider science “whiteness,” and hence “white supremacy” (eye roll), so they’re fine with ignoring it, I suppose.

The far left activist crack-pots (and many in the Democrat Party) are demanding everyone else in society speak in their woke terms and deny scientific realities. This is not okay.

Harvard lecturer Carole Hooven took heat from her own colleague after an appearance on Fox News this week in which she asserted that biological sex is real and defended the continued use of terms like ‘pregnant women’ and “male and female.”

“The ideology seems to be that biology really isn’t as important as how somebody feels about themselves, or feels their sex to be,” Hooven told “Fox & Friends” Wednesday. “The facts are that there are in fact two sexes — there are male and female — and those sexes are designated by the kind of gametes we produce.”

July 27, 2021

Jessica Alves has revealed her plans to undergo a womb transplant so she can fall pregnant, even though the procedure has never been undertaken on a transgender woman.

The TV personality, 37, who underwent sex reassignment surgery in February, revealed she is hoping to have the groundbreaking surgery as she becomes more and more desperate to have a child.

She's a Man, Baby!

It came as Jessica also offered a glimpse of eye-popping figure in a series of exclusive snaps after joining the racy subscription site OnlyFans.

….Speaking to Closer magazine, Jessica said: ‘Even it cost a million pounds to have one, I’d find a way to do it. I would love a baby that has my own genes and blood, and I have my frozen sperm so I could use that for IVF.

Twitter Suspends User for Saying A Man Cannot Get Pregnant (May 2021)

Twitter Suspends User for Saying A Man Cannot Get Pregnant (May 2021)

Before I get to the Links about this news story, I’d like to reiterate, that I believe this is why I was suspended from Twitter (about seven months ago now).

Side note: when I say ‘suspend,’ this term seems to confuse some people. Yes, my SoloLoner account is still visible, but it is FROZEN. Last time I attempted to log in, a message popped up saying I could not retweet or tweet new material from that account – and I was taken to a blank page, if I recall correctly.

An accompanying e-mail informed me that to re-gain full access, I’d quite possibly have to delete a tweet that Twitter felt “broke their rules.” I did not re-log back in to try to figure out exactly WHICH tweet it was, but I am betting on the one where I mentioned that a biological man cannot be and is not a woman.

Side note 2: as I’ve explained before, I don’t much care if those born biological men want to live as women. If you’re an adult, and that is how you choose to live your life, I don’t much care. I don’t hate Trans people.

What I object to are things like biological women’s safety being put to risk over this phenomenon of some in the Trans community pushing their agenda (see more links about that here),
bullying people into using certain sets of pronouns,
and companies or culture trying to censor or cancel anyone who points out biological facts of science, such as, biological men are not physically, biologically capable of giving birth to a baby.

And for perfectly reasonable views like those, people will get harassed online by some Trans and their “allies” or be booted off some wack-a-doodle, far left views pushing platforms, such as Twitter. 

Having said that, here are the links:

Excerpt:

“The hateful tweet (which I [Francisco José Contreras, deputy to Spain’s far-right Vox Party] was forced to delete) was one that said: ′′A man cannot get pregnant. A man has no womb or eggs”,” Contreras wrote in response to the move. “You can see this is already fascist biology. Next time I’ll try 2 + 2 = 4.”

Excerpts:

…So what was it that the Spanish politician wrote that was so hateful? Did he use the n-word or defend antisemitism? Nope. He commented on a recent news item announcing the birth of a child to a transgender parent, saying that a man can’t become pregnant because they lack a uterus or eggs.

A Harvard Medical School department Twitter account referred to women using the term “birthing people” in a tweet.

To advertise a panel about “maternal justice,” the Harvard Med Postgraduate and Continuing Education account tweeted that “globally, ethnic minority pregnant and birthing people suffer worse outcomes and experiences during and after pregnancy and childbirth.”

Man Slammed For Eating a Takeaway Pizza While His Wife Gives Birth

Man Slammed For Eating a Takeaway Pizza While His Wife Gives Birth

I’m not opposed to motherhood, but, news stories like this goes to expose the propaganda put out by my fellow conservatives about how motherhood is so great, motherhood is worth it, etc.

I appreciate that the dude who snapped this photo may have felt he was being amusing, but it actually showed a cavalier and insensitive attitude towards what his wife was going through. He did not have to snap a photo of it AND post it to social media.

This alone is enough proof to dismiss the Christian complementarian arguments that God supposedly “put men in charge.”

I also think this shows that Fatherhood, contrary to propaganda from Al Mohler and other Pro-Family groups or persons, such as “Focus On the Family,” Bradford Wilcox, National Marriage Project, etc, does not make men more empathetic, godly, responsible, ethical, or mature.

The Unintended Consequences of the Contraceptive Mandate by Greer Donley

The Unintended Consequences of the Contraceptive Mandate by Greer Donley

(Link): The Unintended Consequences of the Contraceptive Mandate

Excerpts:

June 2019

Its exclusion of men perpetuates harmful stereotypes. The most obvious one is that birth control is a woman’s responsibility.

In 1971, the Supreme Court for the first time struck down a law under the Constitution’s equal-protection clause that treated men and women differently.

Courts since then have invalidated countless laws that discriminated on the basis of sex.

Bucking convention, advocates frequently attacked laws that were designed to benefit women under the theory that such laws perpetuated harmful sex stereotypes that “put women, not on a pedestal, but in a cage.”

Americans now take for granted that the government acts illegally when it creates self-fulfilling legislation that presumes women are caregivers or do not work outside the home.

Dec 2018

Let me start by saying I didn’t mean to have a baby at 40. I meant to have a baby, but I had hoped to have one much earlier.

When I was 24, I told my boyfriend that he had better get me pregnant soon because my eggs were going to shrivel up and die. For some reason, we didn’t last.
