Trans Slate says sexing a baby for records at birth is abuse

http://www.slate.com/blogs/outward/2014/06/26/infant_gender_assignment_unnecessary_and_potentially_harmful.html

Literally looking and say what is there. They try to make it scary by calling it infant gender assignment. Biological sex isn’t gender. Sex isn’t assigned, you have never been anything else since you existed. Can’t scalpel away every cell in your body.

The metaphor they use can hilariously also be applied to vaccination (peer pressure, side effects)

It ends with:

“Is it better to play the odds, or play it safe? Think carefully. Infant gender assignment might just be Russian roulette with your baby’s life.”

Fearmongering? What fearmongering? There’s no personal agenda here?

I can tell this won’t happen because it interferes with Gov’s desire to acquire personal medical information.
Still fucking annoying though. These people need to be stopped from controlling the lives of others, especially real vulnerable groups like children. It interferes directly with the medical profession on the basis of personal minority belief (but Christianity is meant to be evil) and their ability to do their job. Including save lives.

Imagine the implication. If a child is suffering from a sex-specific ailment, the doctor cannot acknowledge it to treat it. These crazy trans groups enforcing their beliefs on the rest of us will directly cause deaths if they are given their way.

How clean is your pap smear? That metal speculum?

http://medidex.com/medical-devices/99-issues-relating-to-disposable-and-reusable-vaginal-specula.html

I was tipped off about this and I’m mortified as a woman.

“SMTL carried out a survey of mainly GP practices with regard to their use of disposable and reusable vaginal specula. Disturbing reprocessing practices were revealed in some surgeries, including some practices completely ignoring MDA advice. Most users performing in-house reprocessing were not complying with best practice as recommended by the Department of Health through their various device bulletins and HTM documents.

Many GP practices could reduce the level of risk by investing in better reprocessing systems, contracting out their reprocessing completely, or through the use of disposable specula. Practices may also be able to reduce their costs by using disposable specula or by contracting out their reprocessing.”

Imagine the lawsuits. The NHS has been pushing ALL women above a fixed age to have this exam.

“There is little in the literature relating to the issues surrounding reusable vaginal specula.”

Perhaps this is partially behind the soaring HPV rates?

“They concluded that HPV infected cells can be found on instruments inserted into the vagina of women with HPV infection, and that if these instruments are not cleaned and sterilized properly, they will be a potential source of infection for subsequent patients.”

HPV can cause cancer, btw.

“correct pasteurisation (immersion in water at 80 C for 5 minutes) would inactivate papillomaviruses, herpes viruses, and HIV.

That isn’t the same as clean. Are women told this? I’ve never heard of it. Uninformed consent. Bleeding is a “common” side effect of these exams, hence the HIV bolded.

“Although there is little in the literature regarding cross-infection from inadequately sterilized specula, we live in an increasingly litigious society. One strand in the defence against patient claims of cross infection from poorly decontaminated and sterilized instruments would be complete documentation of the process, including logbooks, written operating procedures, training records, test results and maintenance data. The other possibility is to use pre-sterilized disposable CE marked equipment from a reputable manufacturer. Either would make it more difficult for a patient to mount a successful legal claim.”

Oh, they don’t really care about patients at all, they want the NHS to avoid the mass of lawsuits.

Here’s Feminist Midwife explaining the infectious problems with these supposedly ‘safe’ exams, I wish feminism would complain about important problems like this (guys, you’re sticking your dick in this too, it matters, and you might think a woman’s cheating when she isn’t).

Apparently, even the disposable ones can be contaminated by the awkward, common habit of touching lots of things with gloved hands and then the speculum, when it’s clean out of the container. (We must assume it’s clean out of the container or I’m out. Yet checking manufacturing/personnel would be vital).

Can someone look into probes for me? I can only find information like this: “High-Level Disinfection destroys all microorganisms except some endospores” ~ forum source

And forceps are a problem too. Contamination news story in Canada Don’t these devices have hinges? Springs? Things that gather dirt and grime and cannot, in most cases, be taken apart for cleaning?

IV fluid too?? FFS!

Study on HPV infection from non-sexual means at the clinic e.g. gloved hands!
And HPV is in semen.
“The incidence of anal cancer among homosexual men exceeds that of cervical cancer in unscreened women.”
I’m going to stop looking now, it’s too disgusting.

UPDATE

Further information

http://jid.oxfordjournals.org/content/176/4/1076.full.pdf “The data suggest that further study of nonsexual spread of high-risk genital HPV via fomites is warranted.”

http://www.cancer.org/acs/groups/cid/documents/webcontent/003167-pdf.pdf “A woman with multiple sexual partners should use condoms to lower her risk of sexually transmitted infections no matter what other form of contraception she uses.” Rather defeats the purpose of the Pill, doesn’t it? “Certain types of sexual behavior increase a woman’s risk of getting HPV infection, such as having sex at an early age and having many sex partners.” Why don’t men get the vaccine when they’re passing it on?

Update: it gets worse, the lubes used by doctors are probably bad for us too.

Should you be worried about your vagina absorbing the ingredients in your lube?

UK infant, child and adolescent deaths same levels as 1970

I wonder why

study;

“The UK performance for deaths in infants (younger than 1 year) and children aged 1-9 years has been particularly poor, with an estimated 1035 excess deaths annually for infants in the UK compared with the EU15+ median by 2008.”

…and how many of those were vaccinated?

“”Demographic change, including increasing birth rates in the UK compared with other EU15+ countries and increasing prevalence of common chronic disorders in children and adolescents could magnify these differences over the next 20 years.”

Of course, he blames inequality.

“We urgently need to understand more about the role that is played in causing the mortality excess by social factors, such as higher inequality in Britain”

Oh that’s easy, there isn’t one. We have the NHS.

I’ll leave these here;

MMR vaccinations up.

95% uptake aim.

Flu vaccine uptake strong, still not enough.

New brands for child vaccines introduced.

 

Male AND female circumcision are anti-evolution

it’s a short paper;

Abstract: “For various reasons, penile and clitoral prepuces have been amputated from children in certain human societies for thousands of years. Although the justifications for male and female circumcision have changed over the last several thousand years, the practice of circumcision has not been examined from the perspective of primate evolution. Why do primates have a prepuce, and what function does it have? The comparative anatomy between human and non-human primates will be reviewed with a specific focus on the sensory innervation of the prepuce and glans.”

Highlighted (literally);

The male and female prepuce has persisted in all primates, which strongly supports the contention that the prepuce is valuable genital sensory tissue.

Some advocates of mass circumcision have, likewise, considered the prepuce to be a “mistake of nature,”70 but this notion has no validity because the prepuce is ubiquitous in primates and because it provides functional advantages.

The results of this study demonstrate that the human prepuce is not “vestigial” but is, in fact, an evolutionary advancement over the prepuce of other primates. This is most clearly seen in the evolutionary increase in corpuscular innervation of the human prepuce and the concomitant decrease in corpuscular receptors of the human glans relative to the innervation of the prepuce and glans of lower primates.
