BIOLOGICAL Males who have transitioned to women are being invited for cervical cancer smear tests under new NHS plans – even though they don’t have a cervix.
Biological women who have transitioned to men will NOT be given smear tests and will remain at risk.
In a Public Health England “Information for trans people,” pamphlet, the pamphlet states it is impossible for men to have a cervix.
The tests will involve a physically impossible test on non-existent organs, to avoid “triggering gender dysphoria” among trans patients and putting former females at risk.
All women aged 50 to 70 who are registered as a female with their GP are automatically invited for smear testing. Biological men who have taken female hormones and developed breast tissue can be at risk of Breast cancer.
Aedan Wolton a ‘trans health adviser’ featured in an NHS video online and explained that “smear tests could be uncomfortable for “trans-masculine people”
He also claimed that words and references to the biological organs of men and women “can trigger feelings of gender dysphoria” in the transgendered.
David Davies MP, told the Mail on Sunday: “This NHS effort to be politically correct is putting the lives of women who claim to be men at risk.”
He claimed it was also “wasting the time of men who claim to be women by offering them tests for organs they do not have”.
Bernard Reed, of the support group Gender Identity Research and Education Society, praised Public Health England, saying that its booklet “provides valuable guidance”.
