American Cancer Society Reduces Women to “Individuals With a Cervix”

Total Conservative: Well, it appears that the American Cancer Society has been captured by the woke PC Police. The organization released a new set of guidelines for pap screenings this week, but the guidance drew attention not because of the actual advice but because the ACS went (well) out of its way to make sure that transgender people did not get offended by the word “women.”

From The Daily Mail:

The American Cancer Society has been slammed for using the phrase ‘individuals with a cervix’ in its latest pap screening advice, rather than women.

Cervical cancer screening is now recommended to start at 25, instead of 21, and HPV testing should begin at 25 rather than 30. 

But in updating its advice, the ACS used ‘individuals with a cervix’, rather than ‘women’ in its guidance, because transgender, non-binary and gender-nonconforming individuals can also have a cervix. 

The phrasing was ridiculed online, with one Twitter user saying: ‘Individuals with a cervix is a long way to just say women.’

Oh lordy, these folks are out of control. more

  1. Of course, they had to get rid of “women”. The individual with a cervix might be identifying as a man or any of dozens of other categories, and it wouldn’t be fair to them. /sarc

  2. The ACS has long been known as a scam by people that pay attention to these kind of things, so this story isn’t surprising to me at all. This supposed “charity” is really nothing more than a money grubbing scheme run by a bunch of grifters (this is in my informed opinion based on many things I’ve read over the last 20 years or so and the documented financial records exposed on how they “run their business” proves this beyond any reasonable doubt to honest people).

    Their history is that the vast majority of the money people donate to them goes to fund raising and administrative costs such as the multi-million dollar salary for the head of the organization. Personally, I refuse to give a dime to this outfit because I firmly believe that it is a total waste of money. Here are a few links to articles noting this. My own mother died of negligent radiation treatment for cancer, of which careless idiots doing the treatments is part and parcel of what the ACS promotes.

    Like so much of the corruption in the world today, I think that this bunch has no intent of finding an actual cure for cancer because that would stop the gravy train of money they’ve been riding all these years. They’re good at talking people out of their money but horrible at actually using the money to do anything beneficial for those suffering from cancer.

  3. The ACS is just another long-standing, charitable fraud used to finance the “cancer treatment industry” in my informed opinion. The vast majority of money donated goes to further fund raising and exorbitant salaries for staff employed by ACS including the multi-million dollar salary of the head of the organization. They do practically nothing to actually discover a cure for cancer because a real cure would cut them out of a cushy job making loads of money for doing nothing. More of the evil corruption that is today’s world. I personally refuse to give them a dime. Here are a few links discussing this.

  5. “Oh lordy, these folks are out of control.”

    …no, they are IN control.

    Forcing their illogical and stupid language rules on YOU is one way they make sure you NEVER forget it.

  6. “…In today’s logic class on the fly, we review a basically fallacy which I call The Effect Proves the Cause, an item Aristotle elucidated 2350 years ago.

    The lockdowns, the distancing, the masks, the testing, the tracing are the effects. They are designed to prove there is a new and deadly virus, the cause.

    The fallacy is: that’s backwards.

    Of course, the lockdowns and the masks and distancing prove nothing. They’re on the level of: “The man is in jail, so he must have committed a crime.”

    The fallacy is actually: The Effect Which Is Actually Not an Effect of a Claimed Cause.

    And then think about this. If there were no containment measures, if people were allowed to come and go freely, they would soon lose a sense of urgency about vaccination. And businesses would be open; there would be no economic destruction. Now we’re getting down to the truth.

    The containment measures aren’t the effect of anything.

    They’re put there to achieve economic destruction, and to create the illusion of need for a vaccine.”

  7. I think they just discovered a new type of Cancer:

    Mental Cancer;

    Physically non existent yet easy to identify, illegal to treat, with horrific results to all those & their families who have it.

  8. @ Gonad – That is some pretty heavy stuff to think about for me this early in the morning. I got all day to think about it at work though (without my mask on)

  10. And there go the donation totals.
    Get woke, go broke.
    By the end of this year they will be whining about the lack of money.
    Do these liberals sit around watching “Demolition Man”, “1984”, “Brave New World”, “Animal Farm” and “Idiocracy” thinking they’re college courses or something?

  11. I have never donated to any of these ‘needy/seedy’ organizations. Years ago I received a letter in the mail from United Way that I had a chance to ‘WIN UP TO $10,000’ for donating just $50. Wow! So THAT’S where all the money goes! No thanks! I send packages to soldiers stationed overseas. It always a win-win thing.

  12. “transgender people did not get offended by the word “women.””

    humans are offended by the word “transgender” as if there is such a thing.

    made up identifies are the sign of the mentally ill.

    the only people more insane than the supposed transgendered are the supposed normal people who agree with them.
