Loudly, Repeatedly, and Frequently

A transgendered woman walks into a bar in Denver…oh wait, scratch that, a Planned Parenthood clinic.

It turns out that Planned Parenthood – you know, the world’s largest and most profitable abortion business? Yeah, them. Well it turns out they still can’t perform mammograms, despite Cecile’s ardent assurances during election season to the contrary. Even when you don’t, in fact, posses a pair of breasts for them to examine.

This lovely piece from a local news station here in Denver highlights the struggle of one transgendered ‘woman’ seeking consultation over a suspicious breast lump. (Is it too far to joke that the suspicious lump may indeed be the breast itself, hanging out on a male body? Yes, probably too far.)

Anywho, PP turned her away because she is actually a ‘he,’ and thus the latest kerfuffle in the land of WTF/anything goes/ reproductive rights R ours.

Can’t make this stuff up, people.

In other news, it may come to light that the employee who turned him/her down was sporting a classic “October Pink” Susan G. Komen popped collar polo at the time of the incident. Further investigation pending on whether or not Nancy Pelosi plans to grandstand on the issue of a federally-funded distribution of “Save the Man Boobies” rubber bracelets. Once the shutdown ends, that is.

But not a mammogram. Had to hit up a real doctor’s office for that one.

    You have really crossed a line here. I’ve been a long time reader and commenter, but no longer. Judge not, lest ye be judged.

      Why anonymous? Especially if you are a long time reader and commenter? I think Jenny can probably handle it if you have a problem with what she says or how she says it and address it in the comments, but anonymity seldom speaks well of person’s motives.

    I am a medium-time reader, and I don’t see how this contradicts Jenny’s upfront belief in the dignity of the human person. Thank you, Jenny.

      More specifically, mutilating one’s body to more closely resemble a member of the opposite sex is a massive violation of personal dignity, and of the dignity of the human person in general.

    So do you think that this person should not receive preventative screenings because of this choice (this choice = whatever drugs/procedures it took to change gender)? I’m NOT asking in a snarky, rhetorical way…I just wanted to understand this post better.

    I was just speaking to the irony of the (tiresomely) perpetuated myth that Planned Parenthood provides mammograms (they emphatically DON’T). Despite their embrace of all things weird in the sexual realm, they still had to turn away a transgendered woman (read: a man) seeking this basic preventative care. Because they DON’T offer this basic health service to women (or men with fake boobs, it turns out.)

    The photo of the woman smiling with the “I had an abortion” t-shirt made me feel faint and depressed. So incredibly sad. Nothing to be proud of.

    Somewhat off topic, but actually men can get breast cancer as well. It’s rare but it happens! Just thought I’d throw it out there.
