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
