Sick Pay for a Year for Having Male Menopause

A benefit of having moonbats in charge of healthcare as under Britain’s socialized National Health Service has finally been discovered; men can get up to a year off work for having menopause:

An NHS trust has told chiefs to take ‘male menopause’ into consideration as it considers giving men up to a year off for their symptoms.

This time the lunacy has nothing to do with transsexual ideology.

The East Midlands Ambulance Service (EMAS) has been told to make allowances for staff experiencing symptoms associated with a drop in testosterone levels – which takes place over time as a man gets older.

Guys suffering from “andropause” can collect sick pay for up to 12 months.

Eventually progressivism will progress to the point were everyone collects sick pay from birth. Then no one will ever have to work, and utopia will be achieved at last.

Nurses Repurposed

Once a sector of society has been subverted by leftists, all who work in it have a new primary task: to affirm leftism. This includes even the healthcare field:

The American Nurses Association (ANA) said that nurses, as trusted messengers in healthcare, have a responsibility to mitigate and help others adapt to the impacts of climate change in a position statement released on Thursday.

Nurses have enough on their plate dealing with problems that actually exist — yet the ANA quacks flaky duckspeak to justify turning them into Democrat propagandists:

“From the function of cells to the function of Earth’s natural systems, nurses know that humans are deeply interconnected and part of the entire ecosystem. … This holistic orientation positions nurses to grasp the impact of social, structural, and environmental determinants of health.”

The holistic orientation reveals that insufficient taxation and regulation constitute a healthcare crisis, because only a government more intrusive and all-powerful than heretofore imagined can prevent the climate from continuing to fluctuate the way it always has.

“As advocates for the health and safety of individuals and communities, nurses have vital roles to play in addressing this global issue and its consequences on human health and all life on Earth,” the organization added.

Here’s how nurses are expected to take charge of the supposedly problematic weather:

At the professional level, nurses can help communities to both mitigate future climate health harms and adapt to current conditions by educating patients, supporting decarbonization efforts, and supporting research and innovation efforts.

In case there is anyone out there who hasn’t caught on that the imaginary climate crisis has more to do with neo-Marxism than the weather,

In the policy statement, the ANA also stressed the importance of nurses advocating for policies that “advance just and equitable climate responses in public health and healthcare, and direct adequate resources to communities that are overburdened by climate-related conditions,” including individuals who are made more vulnerable due to their race, gender, income status, or disability.

Instead of attending to the sick, nurses are to focus on protecting those of preferred race and gender from the climate. As the inmates continue to consolidate control of the asylum, the Clown World they create will not be characterized by health.

Canada and Belgium Lead the Way on Euthanasia

To see what liberals have in store for us, look to the countries where leftists have the least resistance. Canada and Belgium suggest that the economic inefficiency of socialized medicine will be addressed with the final solution.

In Canada, even some Catholics go along:

Dr. Danielle Kain … was appointed to the directorship of palliative care at Providence Hospital in Kingston, Ontario, July 1.

The Kingston hospital is one of 22 health care institutions in Ontario under the sponsorship of Catholic Health Sponsors of Ontario (CHSO). The CHSO was formed in 1998 to assume responsibility for institutions formerly under the guidance and management of congregations of religious sisters.

Kain is both a staunch proponent and practitioner of euthanasia.

Medical Assistance in Dying — which has already been presented as a cure for long wait times, anorexia, PTSD, poverty, and needing a wheelchair lift (not for regretting sex change surgery though) — sounds great to Kain:

Kain has argued that all publicly funded institutions, including Catholic hospitals, should be compelled to offer MAiD.

Kain says death by doctor can be “both poignant and peaceful.”

Turning to Belgium — where young women are euthanized for feeling depressed — we see that it is plenty poignant but not always peaceful:

Alexina Wattiez, who was just 36 years old, sought euthanasia after being diagnosed with terminal cancer. In 2021, her doctor informed her that she would not survive for another year, and by March of 2022, her health was deteriorating.

Christophe Stulens, Wattiez’s partner, was there when she died, along with his 15-year-old daughter, Tracy. A doctor and two nurses came to the home that the three shared to carry out the euthanasia. “After a short night’s sleep, I was woken up by a nurse who told me that Alexina was doing very badly,” Stulens said. “Then the doctor took some syringes and we were asked if we wanted to say goodbye.”

Stulens and his daughter were told to wait outside, so they went onto the terrace, but what they thought would be a peaceful death quickly turned horrific: they heard screaming.

“I recognized her voice,” he said. “Afterwards we saw her lying on the bed with her eyes and mouth open.”

An autopsy was performed, and found that Wattiez died of asphyxiation. Allegedly, the nurses took turns using a pillow to suffocate her.

An overweight old guy with mobility issues in Utah and a disabled veteran in Tennessee suggest that government agencies outside the traditional healthcare purview could be brought in to conduct these procedures more efficiently, when euthanasia is inevitably extended beyond the sick and the poor to others whose existence is inconvenient to authorities, such as dissidents.

The drugs used in assisted suicide are often the same used for executions, and they are frequently known to fail. Additionally, while the process of dying may look peaceful, in reality, there is a serious possibility of severe pain.

Victims immobilized by drugs may experience any extreme of agony without external indications.

The drawbacks of pharmaceutical homicide are among the arguments for returning to hanging and firing squads for executions. But that approach to euthanasia would require authorities to admit what they are doing.

Kaiser Permanente Pushes Transsexual 3-Year-Olds

No child is too young to be transsexual, according to the liberal establishment — not even 3-year-olds. Libs of TikTok reports:

An employee at Kaiser Permanente, one of the largest healthcare providers on the West Coast, reached out to us after she was mandated to take a new staff training on “gender affirming care.” The employee, who wishes to remain anonymous for fear of losing her job, was horrified that a healthcare facility would be promoting the mutilation and castration of children.

Like the children groomed by our schools, Kaiser Permanente employees are subjected to LGBT indoctrination, including a series of videos promoting the transsexual agenda. In one, a young boy reveals that he knew he was a girl since he was 4 years old; a woman posing as a man proclaims that she knew she was transsexual since she was 3.

Liberal orthodoxy about sex being arbitrarily “assigned” rather than determined by chromosomes is regurgitated. Employees are instructed to believe there are not two genders but an infinite number.

Kaiser also boasts on their site that they provide pediatric gender care, offering surgical procedures and irreversible hormone therapy which they offer to children.

The grotesque horror of these crimes against humanity call to mind those of Josef Mengele.

Imagine trusting your health to fiends who sexually mutilate children. Yet by net patient revenue, Kaiser Permanente is the fourth largest health system in the USA.

One former patient, Chloe Cole, who received a double mastectomy as a teen, is suing Kaiser for what they did to her when she was young and confused.

Hopefully there will be many more such suits, until such time as decency and sanity are restored, so that inflicting sex change procedures on children leads to appropriate legal consequences.

To the surprise of no sane person, sex change surgery only exacerbates the psychiatric dysfunction that would make anyone consent to it.

Children do not consent. They are set on track for it from an early age by some of the most profoundly evil people history has produced.

CDC Warns Against Kissing Small Turtles

Its response to Covid had some wondering whether the CDC serves any constructive purpose. But if it weren’t for CDC bureauweenies, how would we know not to kiss undersized turtles?

“Turtles with shells less than 4 inches long are a known source of illness,” the CDC’s website warned late last week. …

[T]he CDC warns of a “multistate outbreak” involving 26 individuals who apparently ingested the bacteria after getting too friendly with their turtles. “Don’t kiss or snuggle your turtle, and don’t eat or drink around it,” because infected turtle droppings “can easily spread to their bodies, tank water, and anything in the area where they live and roam.”

Of the 26, nine have been hospitalized and none has died —out of the 1.3 million infections and 26,500 hospitalizations caused by salmonella in the USA each year.

The private market sometimes does foolish things with wealth, but it doesn’t pay people comfortable salaries to tell us not to kiss turtles. That’s why we need Big Government.

Hospital System DEI Head Holds Antiwhite Prayer Service

The healthcare industry held out for a while against the Long March Through the Institutions. When it fell, it fell hard, as a woman calling herself Ryan Polly confirms:

Ryan Polly is a vice president of DEI at MaineHealth, a hospital system of over 20,000 employees.

Polly says she is a man. Fox News makes a mockery of its own credibility by catering to her pose. Correct pronouns have been inserted in the interest of clarity.

Polly refers to [herself] as a “minister” of a group called One Spirit. According to a video reviewed by Fox News Digital, which has since been scrubbed, Polly is shown teaching attendees how to be practitioners of antiracism through a prayer that [she] dedicated to “loving spirits who are known by many names.”

“Antiracism” is Liberalese for antiwhite racism.

As this story attests, moonbattery is a religion. Its adherents don’t call it one because then the First Amendment would limit their efforts to impose it through the federal government.

The DEI leader’s ideology is steeped in critical race theory. [She] said during the prayer services that [she herself] maintains “racist narratives and biases,” and attributed those to [her] skin color.

MaineHealth predictably issued a statement defending Polly’s bigotry. The liberal establishment looks after its own.

Polly said that White people acquire “ignorance,” “biases” and “racist thoughts” on the basis of their belonging to a “life of Whiteness.”

Malevolent lunatics like this are now in charge of staffing hospitals, where life and death decisions are made.

We can’t watch Polly’s antiwhite prayer service, because it was made private after Fox News queried MaineHealth.

No doubt there will be another service soon. Turn off the light and it won’t be long before the cockroaches reemerge from under the stove — until such a time as they have uncontested control of the kitchen.

Woke Job Requirements to Be Cancer Biologist

Good thing Joe Biden cured cancer. The medical establishment wouldn’t be likely to do it, now that it has been repurposed to focus on moonbattery rather than medicine:

San Diego State University (SDSU) is subjecting applicants for a professor of cancer biology job to several diversity requirements.

According to the job listing, applicants are required to “satisfy two or more of the eight Building on Inclusive Excellence (BIE) criteria.

One of the criteria is having “research interests that contribute to diversity and equal opportunity in higher education.”

We get to help finance the woke political hogwash that has been displacing serious research:

This is one of 11 positions being offered by a National Institutes of Health (NIH)-funded diversity program at the school.

To hell with curing cancer. Our rulers would rather cure whiteness.

The good news is that you no longer have to master all that hard science stuff to work in this high-paying field. Just focus noisily on leftism and you might get a job even if you are white. Then you can advance your career by publishing science-free articles on health disparities. This makes it easier for universities to achieve DEI quotas.

Final Solution to Socialized Medicine Wait Times

It doesn’t take a degree in economics to grasp that if something scarce and valuable is provided for free, there will be long waits for it. But there is a cure for the long wait times implicit in socialized medicine.

Great Britain, infamous for socializing the healthcare system instead of rebuilding its economy after World War II, illustrates the problem:

More than 7.6 million people in the United Kingdom – around 12 percent of the total population – are waiting to receive routine hospital treatment from the country’s socialized healthcare system, the National Health Service (NHS), representing the highest figure since records began in 2007 and increasing by another 100,000 since May.

Problems caused by progressivism tend to progress.

Just under 400,000 people have been on the NHS waiting list for more than a year, around 7,000 people have been waiting for treatment for over 18 months, and more than 20,000 have waited longer than two months (62 days) for urgent cancer screenings, according to data released by NHS England.

Canada too has burdened itself with socialized medicine. It steps forward with the solution. You might call it the final solution:

Kathrin Mentler, 37, lives with chronic depression and suicidality, both of which she says were exacerbated by a traumatic event early this year. Feeling particularly vulnerable in June, she went to Vancouver General Hospital looking for psychiatric help in dealing with feelings of hopelessness she feared she couldn’t shake.

Instead, Ms. Mentler says a clinician told her there would be long waits to see a psychiatrist and that the health care system is “broken.” That was followed by a jarring question: “Have you considered MAID?”

MAID (medical assistance in dying) is a euphemism for execution as healthcare. If abortion is healthcare, so is MAID.

Canadian authorities have presented MAID as a solution for anorexia, PTSD, being poor, and needing a wheelchair lift (not for regretting sex change surgery though).

Inevitably, it will be applied to solve the problems most concerning to those in charge, namely, racism, homophobia, transphobia, Eurocentrism, et cetera.

Now the Nurses Dance for Climate Ideology

Hundreds of Black Lives Matter race riots causing $billions in damages and the catastrophic US election may not be our worst memories of the godforsaken year 2020. Among the symptoms of Covid was the Dance of TikTok Nurses.

What do the nurses do with their time now that even the government admits the crisis is over? They dance to promote a crisis that will never end because the climate will always fluctuate:

Meanwhile, real patients with actual problems are left unattended. That’s the price of allowing moonbattery to infiltrate, subvert, and farcify healthcare like it has done to almost all of our institutions.

CDC Promotes Male Breastfeeding

To the extent the Democratic Party controls them, all government institutions exist so as to consolidate its power and promote its ideology. They have no other purpose. For example, the purpose of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is not to prevent or control diseases, but to exploit them to increase government power, as in the case of Covid, or to exacerbate them so as to promote liberal social engineering objectives, as is the case here:

Several information pages on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website appear to endorse ‘chestfeeding’ — a term used to describe feeding an infant milk directly from the breast by trans and non-binary parents.

The reference is to the psychotic concept of breastfeeding men. If it is too disgusting to be out of a horror movie, it must be from the federal government.

Men cannot breastfeed babies, even if the sick kooks in charge proclaim them to be women. However,

Biological men who transition to women can produce breastmilk by taking several hormone drugs that mimic the changes a woman’s body undergoes during the late stages of pregnancy and shortly after the birth of a child.

Among these drugs is domperidone, which can pass into breast milk and which the FDA advises breastfeeding women not to use to increase milk production because of what it calls “serious adverse effects.” But apparently the CDC doesn’t mind if men use it for the same purpose.

As with the experimental vaccine our government imposed, the long-term health consequences of feeding babies male pseudomilk are unknown.

Dr Jane Orient is executive director of the refreshingly nonliberal Association of American Physicians and Surgeons. As she notes,

“The CDC has a responsibility to talk about the health risks, but they have been derelict in doing that.”

The CDC is not concerned with health risks. It has an agenda to promote.

Trans women [i.e., men] can make themselves lactate by taking a combination of medicines called the Newman-Goldfarb protocol. …

The method uses a combination of the contraceptive pill to boost the hormone estrogen, physical stimulation through a breast pump and domperidone medication to mimic the hormonal changes of pregnancy and birth. …

Domperidone, an anti-nausea drug, is the preferred option for the protocol as it has a lower rate of potentially dangerous side effects, like heart palpations, muscle contractions and depression, than alternatives.

It is fitting that the proper purpose of domperidone is to suppress nausea. Nausea is the natural, healthy reaction to all things LGBT. Social engineers have worked overtime to artificially suppress this nausea.

Healthcare is too important to allow the Democrat apparatchiks administering the CDC to have anything to do with it.

Nonwhites Prioritized for Surgery in New Zealand

Under moonbat rule, all the animals are equal, but pale-skinned animals are a lot less equal. Consequently, they can expect a long wait for surgery in New Zealand:

Auckland surgeons are now required to consider a patient’s ethnicity alongside other factors when deciding who should get an operation first.

Several surgeons say they are upset by the policy, which was introduced in Auckland in February and gave priority to Māori and Pacific Island patients – on the grounds that they have historically had unequal access to healthcare.

Prioritization for Māori and Pacific Island patients is particularly just when you consider their contributions to medical technology. Why should surgical techniques made possible by the industry and ingenuity of oppressed indigenous peoples be wasted on whites?

This must be why the world’s most powerful Cherokee, Senator Elizabeth Warren, demands healthcare for blacks be prioritized. When people like her consolidate control, the Caucasians she so strangely resembles will come last.

AMA Denounces BMI, Affirms Sex Change Surgery

As the Long March Through the Institutions consolidates control over the medical industry, moonbattery is replacing health as the primary objective. The woke AMA now denounces BMI as racist:

Body mass index (BMI), devised by a white man considering white bodies, is measured by dividing a person’s weight in kilograms or pounds by the square of height in meters or feet, and it has been deeply ingrained in the medical system as a way to measure population health more broadly.

Anything pertaining to white men is bad, per the prevailing ideology — even a tool that promotes health by helping people maintain a healthy weight, although obesity is a contributing factor to a long list of diseases, including diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, sleep apnea, metabolic syndrome, fatty liver disease, osteoarthritis, gallbladder diseases, kidney disease, pregnancy complications, and cancer.

The AMA Council on Science and Public Health said: ‘Our AMA recognizes: the issues with using body mass index (BMI) as a measurement because: (a) of the eugenics behind the history of BMI, (b) of the use of BMI for racist exclusion, and (c) BMI cutoffs are based on the imagined ideal Caucasian and does not consider a person’s gender or ethnicity.’

When a healthcare professional starts barking about “racist exclusion,” find the door and get out of there.

Rejecting BMI on largely ideological grounds is not the AMA’s worst crime against public health. It supports the horrific practice of sex change surgery:

On June 12, the American Medical Association House of Delegates passed the Endocrine Society’s resolution to “protect access to evidence-based gender-affirming care for transgender and gender-diverse individuals.”

So much for “First, do no harm.” Cutting off lunatics’ genitals because they imagine themselves to be members of the opposite sex is comparable to cutting off their feet to make them shorter if they think they are Napoleon.

“In the resolution, the AMA committed to opposing any criminal and legal penalties against patients seeking gender-affirming care, family members or guardians who support them in seeking medical care, and health care facilities and clinicians who provide gender-affirming care,” the AMA proclaimed. “The AMA will work at the federal and state level with legislators and regulators to oppose such policies and collaborate with other organizations to educate the Federation of State Medical Boards about the importance of gender-affirming care.”

The AMA has a high BMI to throw around:

The New Yorker noted in 2022, “Since 1998, the A.M.A. has spent $462 million on lobbying, an amount exceeded only by the expenditures of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the National Association of Realtors, and the American Hospital Association.”

At least it is willing to pump the brakes on sex change surgery for children:

The AMA claimed that “medical intervention is reserved for older adolescents and adults.” The American Medical Association noted, “Major medical organizations also agree on waiting until an individual has turned 18 or reached the age of majority in their country to undergo gender-affirming genital surgery.”

Chris Christie won’t be pleased, although he may be happy about nixing BMI.

Crippling Healthcare Cost of Illegal Immigration

Count bankrupt hospitals among the likely ripple effects of our treasonous government inviting the entire Third World to pour over the border. For now, taxpayers are absorbing most of the damage:

Illegal aliens released into the United States interior are costing American taxpayers, and the public hospitals they help fund, billions in unpaid medical bills every year, a report from Republicans on the House Homeland Security Committee details.

Texas has been required to shell out up to $90 million per year to provide medical care to illegal aliens under its Emergency Medicaid program. Elsewhere,

In Florida, for Fiscal Year 2021, illegal aliens cost state hospitals about $312 million. Meanwhile, in Illinois, a statewide healthcare benefits program for illegal aliens has ballooned from a projected $2 to $4 million cost to what has now become a $1.1 billion program for taxpayers.

Locally, in Yuma, Arizona, executives with the Yuma Regional Medical Center said that in just one year, taxpayers were left with $26 million in unpaid medical bills from illegal aliens who showed up to the hospital requesting free care. …

[T]he Federation for American Immigration Reform reported that illegal immigration costs the nation’s hospital systems at least $23 billion annually — $8.2 billion of which is uncompensated medical care for illegal aliens.

If something cannot go on forever, it will stop. Under Democrat rule, this won’t stop until hospitals start going under, having been forced to absorb some of the massive cost.

Privately, Democrats will regard bankrupt hospitals as not a bug but a feature. They will help in the next incremental push toward direct federal control over who gets medical treatment. You probably do not belong to a group that will be prioritized.

In the meantime, “free” taxpayer-financed healthcare for undocumented Democrats via the emergency room provides de facto socialized medicine.

Expert: Start Transsexualizing Your Child Prior to Birth

Children are not human until after they have passed entirely through the birth canal; that’s why it is morally acceptable to crush their skulls prior to that event and vacuum out their brains. However, even if you are too young to count as a Homo sapiens, you are never too young to be set on track to have your mind and body destroyed on behalf of the transsexual agenda, as an Expert confirms:

A professor at Albert Einstein College of Medicine who is involved in a LGBTQ+ “special interest group” claimed that parents must start including gender ideology in their families before a baby is born.

You can only serve one master. Members of the LGBTQ+ cult will not be distracted from their agenda by conflicting principles like “first do no harm.”

Lauren T. Roth, a professor of pediatrics at Einstein and a physician in the division of academic general pediatrics at the Children’s Hospital at Montefiore … has specialized knowledge of transgender medical interventions on children diagnosed with dysphoria.

Lectures Roth:

“Like, this is a normal thing. And we have to understand that gender is on a spectrum. There’s not just men and women.”

Despite the specialized knowledge, Dr. Roth appears to have flunked junior high biology class. A doctor denying the adult humans are either men or women is like a mathematician denying that 2 + 2 = 4.

To convince children of such obvious lies, you have to start early:

Roth said gender ideology must be adopted by parents “at birth or even before,” and proceeded to criticize the colors pink and blue for putting “expectations” on a baby.

Liberal parents will not acquire a transsexual trophy child unless they get the project started early.

Despite gender ideology having been invented only within the past few years,

Roth went on to claim that babies can develop their gender identity as young as 18 months old.

This will require what progressives call “nudging”:

[Roth] suggested parents can initiate gender-related conversations early in childhood in order to “give them space to explore” what gender they are.

Here’s why wise parents will not let Dr. Roth anywhere near their children:

Roth serves as co-chair of the LGBTQ Health and Well-Being Special Interest Group of the Academic Pediatric Association, where she is working to bring standardized training to future pediatricians.


Montefiore provides transgender medical interventions on children such as cross-sex hormones and puberty blockers…

The purpose of these drugs is to prevent a child’s normal development.

The Long March Through the Institutions has been laying claim to the medical profession, making it increasingly difficult to determine which doctors can be trusted to place the health of patients ahead of leftist ideology.

Fortunately, Roth’s crazy eyes are likely to warn caring parents away:
