Men do not have a cervix. Only women can have cervical screenings. No matter how much women try to appropriate manhood by putting on costumes and pumping themselves full of male hormones, they can’t escape the fact they are female and require sex-specific healthcare.
A transgender man has said confusion over his gender caused a delay in receiving a hospital appointment after an abnormal cervical screening result.
Jamie, 29, from Hull, began his medical transition aged 18, but opted to retain his cervix.
When referred to hospital after the screening, it was questioned why a man needed an appointment, he said.
The hospital staff were confused because Jamie’s records state she is male despite the fact she is biologically female.
According to the BBC, the NHS states:
Anyone with a cervix, aged between 25 and 64, is eligible for cervical screening
It's not a test for cancer, it’s a test to help prevent cancer
If you're registered with a GP as female, you will be routinely invited
If you're registered with a GP as male, you will not be invited
Trans men can contact their GP to arrange to book a screening
Binary spokeswoman, Kirralie Smith, said biology matters.
“There are a myriad of health issues that rely solely on biological reality,” she said.
“It is pure science. Only women have a cervix. A female can insist all she likes that she wants to be a man, but the reality is, she will still have uniquely female health issues.
“The same goes for men. Biology does matter and it is insanity to ignore it for the sake of an ideology.”
