Katie Herzog via Common Sense with Bari Weiss has an ongoing series about the terrifying spread of woke ideology in the medical field. Herzog’s latest reporting “illustrates some of the most urgent elements of that threat” writes Zero Hedge.
Herzog unearths “how biological sex is being denied by professors fearful of being smeared by their students as transphobic. And it shows how the true victims of that denial are not sensitive medical students but patients, perhaps most importantly, transgender ones.”
Herzog compiled examples of the tragedy that results from a ‘woke’ medical profession. One professor stopped his lecture to profusely apologize to his students about possibly having been offensive because he said the phrase “pregnant women.”
Other examples are literally deadly:
In 2019, the New England Journal of Medicine reported the case of a 32-year-old transgender man who went to an ER complaining of abdominal pain. While the patient disclosed he was transgender, his medical records did not. He was simply a man. The triage nurse determined that the patient, who was obese, was in pain because he’d stopped taking a medication meant to relieve hypertension. This was no emergency, she decided. She was wrong: The patient was, in fact, pregnant and in labor. By the time hospital staff realized that, it was too late. The baby was dead. And the patient, despite his own shock at being pregnant, was shattered.
One recent graduate of Mount Sinai Medical School in New York said, “everything was about pronouns.” Young doctors are being taught to declare their own pronouns when they first meet a patient and ask for the patients’ preferred pronouns in return. However, when it comes to pregnancy, menopause, and many other biological conditions, pronouns are useless.
Abdominal aortic aneurysms, for example, are four times as likely to occur in males than females, but that very significant difference was not even emphasized. “I had to look it up, and I don’t have the time to look up the sex predominance for the hundreds of diseases I’m expected to know. I’m not even sure what I’m not being taught, and unless my classmates are as skeptical as I am, they probably aren’t aware either.”
