         "A leading medical journal..."   

         Not anymore. See next two posts to demonstrate what the Lancet has become.

Fury as leading medical journal describes women as 'bodies with vaginas'

Now the Lancet CANCELS women: Fury as leading medical journal runs 'dehumanising' and 'sexist' front-page describing females as 'bodies with vaginas' to placate trans lobby

A leading medical journal has come under fire for describing women as 'bodies with vaginas' on the front page of its latest edition. The Lancet was accused of sexism and dehumanising women after it editors used the term, which was written in an article titled 'Periods on Display', on the journal's front cover in an attempt to be inclusive to trans people.

THE VAGINA MUSEUM, I WENT DOWN...TO SEE IT — A-Broad In London
   The article, which was published on September 1, examines an exhibition exploring the taboos and history of periods at the Vagina Museum in London and sees the writer use the word 'women' but also use the term 'bodies with vaginas'. 
 

The quote, which was then used on the journal's front page, read: 'Historically, the anatomy and physiology of bodies with vaginas have been neglected.' 

However the move to display the quote on the journal's front cover has been met with criticism, with some academics calling it 'insulting and abusive' and a 'misguided pursuit of woke points'. 

Meanwhile others said they had cancelled their subscriptions with the peer-reviewed medical journal - which was founded in 1823.

Vagina Museum seeks to erase women's health from public discourse

The Vagina Museum would have women's health again regulated to the dustbin of the undiscussable.

THE VAGINA MUSEUM, I WENT DOWN...TO SEE IT — A-Broad In London

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Vagina Museum, which is likely targeted to women, tells women that the use of the word "woman" is not acceptable, because some people who are female but believe they are men, will find the language upsetting. The Vagina Museum doesn't want women to have to be reminded of the fact that they are women.

To that end, they write that women should use much less specific terms to describe their bodies, women's health, and women-specific products.

"Instead of 'sanitary products', say 'menstrual products';" "Instead of 'feminine hygiene products', say 'period products';" "Instead of 'becoming a woman', say 'starting puberty'."

"Instead of 'women's health', say 'reproductive health' or 'gynaecological health' (whatever you prefer);" "Instead of 'women and girls', say 'people who menstruate' or 'people who have periods'."

What would prompt the Vagina Museum to instruct women to rewrite the language they use about their own bodies and experiences? Is there something wrong with the concept of the "feminine"? Is there something abhorrent about "becoming a woman"?

The Museum says that they want to remove shame from womanhood, but instead, in creating language that obfuscates femaleness and female bodies, they are adding shame. They are also creating confusion.

It has been decades of hard-fought activism by women to get the concept and practice women's health to the public square. Yet the Vagina Museum wants to rephrase that to say "reproductive health" or "gynecological health" as opposed to "women's health." The Vagina Museum believes that the only sort of health differences between men and women are in the realm of reproduction, but this is entirely false.

Women's health concerns differ from those of men in many, significant ways. Cardiovascular health is one key area where male bodies and women's bodies differ. The signs of a male heart attack or stroke are different from women's. Cancer concerns and risks are different, as is the area of bone health. These are just a few differences that, if women opted instead for the term "reproductive health" would be entirely missed.

       "The Lancet medical journal pulled the study after three of its authors retracted it, citing concerns about the quality and veracity of data in it."

The Lancet Study on Hydroxychloroquine Was a COMPLETE FRAUD – The Authors are Linked to the Pharmaceutical Industry and People Died Because of Their Lies!

The Lancet Medical Journal apologized this week and pulled the controversial hydroxychloroquine study.

The study released by Lancet titled — “Hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine with or without a macrolide for treatment of COVID-19: a multinational registry analysis” —  was retracted after it was found to be a complete fraud.

Reuters reported:

An influential study that found hydroxychloroquine increased the risk of death in COVID-19 patients has been withdrawn a week after it led to major trials being halted, adding to confusion about a malaria drug championed by U.S. President Donald Trump.

The Lancet medical journal pulled the study after three of its authors retracted it, citing concerns about the quality and veracity of data in it. The World Health Organization (WHO) will resume its hydroxychloroquine trials after pausing them in the wake of the study. Dozens of other trials have resumed or are in process.

The three authors said Surgisphere, the company that provided the data, would not transfer the dataset for an independent review and they “can no longer vouch for the veracity of the primary data sources.”

The co-authors of this study are all linked to the pharmaceutical industry.

Mandeep Mehra, Frank Ruschitzka, Amit Patel and Sapan Desai

This incident is worse than was reported by the liberal media.

The purpose of the Lancet study was to create uncertainty and skepticism on the use of hydroxychloroquine to treat the coronavirus.

The HCQ was showing tremendous success in studies around the world.  And it was promoted by President Trump.  HCQ is a cheap drug that has been around for decades.

So this Lancet Study’s entire purpose was to lie about the drug’s abilities in order to promote more expensive pharmaceutical alternatives.  And, of course, they authors also knew they would embarass President Trump in the process.

What makes this so sinister is the fact that hundreds or thousands of individuals may have been saved from HCQ’s use but died from coronavirus instead.

        "Left-wing activists have largely erased the term "women" from their political vocabulary in recent years out of fear of offending biological women who identify as men."

        Liberals should be OUTRAGED. Imagine a woman that identifies as a man. She is therefore a MAN, right, and everybody knows men cannot become pregnant. It is therefore SILLY to give these MEN abortion protections. LIBERALS - YOU NEED TO PROTEST!

Democratic Abortion Bill Protects ‘Transgender Men’

Bill would legalize abortion on demand nationwide

Women march across the US to fight for equal rights - ABC News

A Democratic bill legalizing abortion on demand nationwide includes provisions for "every person capable of becoming pregnant," including "transgender men."...The bill notes that "transgender men, non-binary individuals, those who identify with a different gender … are unjustly harmed by restrictions on abortion services."

       "But the problem is that once we accept and legally enshrine transgender premises into law — which we have done and are continuing to do — there are very real and very terrifying consequences that come as a result."

https://www.lifesitenews.com/blogs/prestigious-medical-journal-is-the-transgender-movements-latest-conquest/

Prestigious medical journal, the Lancet, is the transgender movement’s latest conquest

The reason we must track these tectonic cultural shifts with such care is not out of some morbid voyeurism or self-righteousness. It is because these small shifts amount to a sea change.
 

The Lancet is a weekly peer-reviewed medical journal that is considered one of the most prestigious in the world. It’s the oldest and best-known, founded in 1823. It is also the transgender movement’s latest conquest.

On the front page of one of The Lancet’s most recent issues is an article titled “Periods on Display,” a review of an exhibition on menstruation at London’s Vagina Museum. The description reads as follows: “Historically, the anatomy and physiology of bodies with vaginas have been neglected.”

The backlash from readers was immediate, with many calling out the sexism and misogyny of referring to women as “bodies with vaginas” simply because some men choose to identify as women. The ongoing erasure of women, with the Democratic party, progressive academics, and media outlets obediently using phrases such as “birthing persons” while insisting, paradoxically, that “trans women are women.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

To sum up: A Labour MP objects to women being referred to as “individuals with a cervix,” and her party leader cites it as evidence that more action must be taken to ensure that biological men identifying as women are recognized as such.

It may be tempting to laugh this sort of thing off. After all, academics and Labour MPs have been saying ludicrous things for a long time, and most of us would like to shove them all into a basket of ignorables and move on with our lives. But the problem is that once we accept and legally enshrine transgender premises into law — which we have done and are continuing to do — there are very real and very terrifying consequences that come as a result.

This week, for example, the Supreme Court of Western Australia ruled on a landmark case involving a 15-year-old child identifying as transgender after the children’s court removed the child from the parental home. The court cited “emotional abuse” because the parents opposed puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones, and the court stated that the father “misgendered” his child. As such, the government decided that the child would be subject to mental and emotional abuse and had to be removed. The parents have lost their appeal and will not get their child back.

To reiterate: The government removed a child from the parental home because those parents did not support a sex-change for a minor, and when the courts had to decide if the parents or trans activists knew best for their child, they chose trans activists. That is not just another perversely humorous insanity from our elites — that is every parent’s nightmare.

         Sure, as if they allowed trans woman to be considered 113 years ago, as if trans women existed 113 years ago.

Trans Weightlifter Laurel Hubbard Wins Coveted Sportswoman of the Year Award

For the first time in 113 years, a trans woman won sportswoman of the year award from the University of Otago.

Weightlifter Laurel Hubbard won the coveted award this year after qualifying for the Olympics.

The New Zealand Herald reported:

Transgender weightlifter Laurel Hubbard has been named University of Otago sportswoman of the year at the Blues awards earlier this week.

Washington Post Erases Women — New Style Guide Says to Use 'Pregnant Individuals' Instead

Think tanks, the media, and liberal politicians are in the midst of a coordinated effort to erase associating pregnancy with women. Now, the Washington Post has updated their official style guide to replace the term “pregnant woman” with “pregnant individual.”

Travis Lyles, the Washington Post’s new “Instagram editor” leaked the big change on Twitter, before setting his account to private.

“While biology dictates who can become pregnant, it does not always reflect gender identity,” the updated style manual reads. “If we say pregnant women, we exclude those who are transgender and nonbinary.”

The newspaper is worried about excluding women, who they consider a “marginalized group,” a report from Newsbusters notes.

“However, we must take care that our efforts to be more inclusive do not come at the expense of other marginalized groups, such as women, and add to a feeling of exclusion.”

It isn’t just the media attempting to change our language to erase women from motherhood.

The Daily Caller reports that the Democrats’ $3.5 trillion spending package refers to mothers as both “pregnant” and “lactating” individuals on 11 occasions.

Well, I'm lactating over the fact that I can neither gurgitate nor regurgitate what ever the hell they seem to be purporting.

        "As the report states: “Current research indicates that testosterone suppression does not negate this physical advantage over females and so cannot guarantee competitive fairness and/or safety.”

          What if it did? Who cares? Women do not want to compete against the men in physical competitions even if the men tie their hands behind their backs. What kind of man takes pride in beating a bunch of women in a push-up competition? All these faux women are doing is ruining something, but maybe that is exactly what they want. These are not builders, they are destroyers.

As study confirms trans athletes have unfair advantages, university gives prize to trans athlete

It is a symptom of our stupid age that extremely obvious facts are reported as shocking news, while obvious falsehoods are reported as triumphant truths. Consider, for example, the tale of two transgender stories.

You could be forgiven for missing it — only a few outlets covered the story because it is inconvenient to the current progressive dogmas — but a report from the Sports Councils Equality Group concluded that “trans women” (that is, biological men identifying as women) have an advantage when playing in women’s sports. This is not only true in general, but also when testosterone levels have been reduced in order to level the playing field.

As the report states: “Current research indicates that testosterone suppression does not negate this physical advantage over females and so cannot guarantee competitive fairness and/or safety.”

That said, in order to ensure that transgender athletes can exercise their God-given right to play sports with whoever they want, whenever they want, the report timidly suggested that new “universal” or “open” categories be invented, so that transgender folks and in-betweenies can still play without ruining women’s sports. The report concluded that fairness in women’s sports cannot be maintained if trans athletes are allowed to compete.

The report is thorough, including a review of the latest research and interviews with 300 people and 175 organizations. It is also inconvenient for trans activists, who have been making a lot of headway in colonizing women’s sports: The International Olympic Committee (IOC) currently allows it.

In order to dodge inevitable accusations of transphobia, the report went out of the way to emphasize the apparent need for “prioritising transgender inclusion,” without explaining why this should be a priority beyond the unspoken fact that trans activists expect society to rearrange itself around their chosen gender identities.

This story, of course, is not surprising to anyone with a functioning frontal cortex or set of eyes. Biological males have distinct physical advantages, and only when trans activists started demanding that we ignore our lying eyes have we pretended that this is not the case. Instead, we are treated to insane stories like this one, out of New Zealand.

Olympic New Zealand weightlifter Laurel Hubbard — a biological man identifying (unconvincingly) as a woman — has been named “sportswoman of the year” by the University of Otago. Which means that any other female Kiwi athletes who thought they might qualify are now confronted with the fact that a big, brawny dude calling himself a woman qualifies as more of a woman than they do in the eyes of the University of Otago.

Of course, this is being touted as another great win for transgender folks, who have already won most of the magazine prizes intended for women.
