You Can’t Trust Anybody

 

It’s bad enough we cannot trust teachers when it comes to the Grooming Agenda. It looks as if the medical profession is joining the growing ranks of People We Can’t Trust With Our Children:

Doctors give ‘gender card’ to children, offer to keep identifiers secret from parents

The “Gender Card” is being distributed by local pediatricians to children in the Greater Seattle area.

The card has a section to fill out where the child can ask the doctor to call them by whatever name or pronoun they prefer. Additionally, multiple options for gender identity are given including “trans woman,” “trans man,” “agender,” “non-binary,” “genderqueer,” “questioning” and even has a line to fill in if none of the others apply.

In Washington state, treatments can be given out to minors without parental consent including for: reproductive health, sexually transmitted diseases, substance use, gender dysphoria, gender affirming care & more.

The part that kills me is “Circle all that apply.”

The part that angers me is that Washington State has a “medical age of consent” of 13, which means anyone that age or older can get medical treatment (like trans hormones and operations) without parental knowledge or consent.

    I will use those dietary regimens which will benefit my patients according to my greatest ability and judgment, and I will do no harm or injustice to them. Neither will I administer a poison to anybody when asked to do so, nor will I suggest such a course. Similarly I will not give to a woman a pessary to cause abortion. But I will keep pure and holy both my life and my art. — From the Hippocratic Oath, as translated by W. H. S. Jones

    Apparently some doctors take the hypocritical oath rather than the Hippocratic Oath these days.

    Clinics have been asking children about their gender for quite awhile now. Drives my wife crazy. Those questions were always on the paperwork whenever we were bringing the kids to medical appointments. “What gender do you feel you are?”

    My wife would either refuse to answer, or print in large capital letters that nobody could miss “SHE IS A GIRL.”

    Thankfully, the kids’ doctor herself would never go near that line, but the clinics, the administration, . . . they always ask that crap.

    So this isn’t particularly new, but there is certainly a new push. And more people are becoming aware of it, which is good.

    The Woke Cancel Culture is toxic to women and children.

    I believe that it went on steroids during the 0bama administration.

    Good for Mrs Drew.  We need to mock this madness.

    Yesterday I had a DXA study at a local hospital.  The hospital’s information sheet asked me my gender, if I was trans, what was my gender assigned at birth. I crossed them all out and wrote “STUPID QUESTION.  I AM MALE”.

    The technician, scanning down the sheet, paused here and smiled a bit.

    We all must do this, every time.

    Apparently some doctors take the hypocritical oath rather than the Hippocratic Oath these days.

    When my niece graduated from her LNP school a couple years ago, part of the graduation ceremony was taking the “Hippocratic” oath.  In scare quotes, because it wasn’t actually the Hippocratic oath.  Maybe someone has the “updated” text used nowadays, but what I heard sounded like a bunch of weasel words.  Hypocritical oath indeed. ):

    Yeah, what I quoted was from the original. Note that it was against abortion. A different version was promulgated in the 1960’s. You can find it on Wikipedia.

    I can’t help thinking abortion and birth control as women’s health care paced the way for this madness.

    health is about your body being made to operate as it should. Abortion, birth control, and this actively seek to make your body NOT operate as it should.

    Let’s face it, like so many,  MD’s make big bucks going along.  Everybody who plays along does, or has enough to not notice the impact of inflation and are still employed.   Few seem to understand where this heads and how it ends, even ignoring the Chinese.    Powerful leaders who are perhaps the most ignorant business leaders we’ve ever had, don’t have a clue or are so rich they don’t worry, or most likely, both.  We can’t know what it all looks like when it comes to an end.  Even if the Chinese dominate, they too will rot and disintegrate.  I suppose the good news is that at some point the population will be smaller, the economy much smaller and fragmented, and we can start over if we have folks who remember or can read.   Nothing is inevitable, but if we sit around waiting to win elections, it probably is.  Folks on our side who concluded the election was fair and honest are unknowingly setting them up to take them again.
