Future historians looking back on the collapse of the West as a first-world, advanced civilization will see that the collapse began during the period we are currently in.
They will determine that our societies collapsed due to internal countercultural forces that were successful in convincing enough Americans to shun long-known scientific facts and well-understood human behavioral conditions in lieu of fabricated concepts and an ideology that demanded unquestioned conformity.
Case in point: Hospital personnel in Britain are now actually asking men if they are pregnant before allowing them to begin cancer diagnostic testing that could damage fetuses.
The Daily Mail has more:
Cancer patients and those having X-rays and MRI scans are being asked the question, even if they are not women because the word ‘female’ has been replaced by ‘individuals’ for medical procedures.
In Liverpool, the Walton Centre NHS Trust now asks ‘all patients under the age of 60, regardless of how you may identify your gender’ whether they could be having a baby.
The dangers that radiotherapy, diagnostic imaging and nuclear medicine pose to an unborn child mean medics must find out whether a patient is pregnant before carrying out the procedures.
The outlet goes on to note that in 2017 regulations regarding these questions were updated by the Department of Health to be more — wait for it — inclusive, changing the verbiage regarding those who should be asked such a question from “females of childbearing age’ to “individuals of childbearing potential.”
Some critics in England are calling out this unscientific lunacy, noting that it’s the start of a “clinically dangerous” move to record preferred genders, not actual biological sex, on medical records. That will eventually lead to inaccurate statistics which will make it impossible to detect healthcare trends, for instance, and then design a public policy to meet the challenge.
The same critics have also been forced to repeat a scientific fact that humans have known since Adam and Eve: Only one of the two human sexes can bear children, and it isn’t men.
In November, the UK’s Society of Radiographers advised doctors and healthcare providers that it is “important to check with all patients for any possibility of pregnancy,” which is just…stupid. Nevertheless, a spokesman for the Walton Center NHS Foundation Trust told the Daily Telegraph that the policy “adheres to national legislation, as certain amounts of radiation can be harmful to fetuses in utero.”
“Our policy relating to asking patients if they are pregnant before undergoing procedures involving ionizing radiation and MRI adheres to national legislation, as certain amounts of radiation can be harmful to fetuses in utero. We believe asking all people who are having their abdomen imaged/scanned in this way, regardless of gender, is the least intrusive way of ensuring it is safe to proceed,” the trust said.
Kat Barber, with advocacy group Sex Not Gender Nurses and Midwives, said, “This is an example of why we need both sex and gender clearly recorded for patients. We do not need to ask all patients if they are pregnant. We need to ask females, hence why it is important to know if the person we are providing care for is female whilst also respecting their gender identity.”
The fact that someone even has to say such a thing is further evidence of our societal collapse.
