“People with cervices need to undergo yearly cervical cancer screening”
It’s absolutely insane that we have allowed wokeism to infiltrate the study of medicine.
The Daily Mail reports:
Indiana University’s medical school DEFENDS decision to erase women from linguistic guide and instead refer to them as ‘people with cervices’
The Indiana University School of Medicine is still touting a mandatory first-year ‘Human Structure’ course that instructs students to use gender-inclusive language and avoid words like male and female.
The lessons, also offered last schoolyear, were first laid bare this past March – via a series of controversial, leaked slides from instructors Dr. Jessica Byram and Dr. Valerie O’Loughlin.
Documents obtained this month by conservative website The College Fix show how the same class – with a virtually identical lesson plan – is still being taught, despite a storm of backlash seen during the previous school year.
This year’s lesson, like the last, preaches that sex and gender are both ‘non-binary’, and are instead constructs to be interpreted.
In one slide, aspiring medical professionals are urged to not use words that associate organs with a person’s sex – even the word ‘woman.’
Instead, med students are told to issue directives like ‘People with cervices need to undergo yearly cervical cancer screening,’ as opposed to more traditional instructions that would use the word ‘women’.
Other slides reportedly obtained by Do No Harm and then shared to The Fix show more of the same, with a line from that slide also telling students to instead use ‘inclusive terminology’.
Instead of ‘first-person’ terms that ‘[place] the person before a trait [or] condition’, students are told to use accepted words [focus] on the organs, tissues, and structures themselves… and not as ‘typical’ person of any one sex assigned at birth,’
Another example word mentioned by Byram and O’Loughlin that could be deemed offensive is the word ‘male’ – even when it’s offered in a scientific context.
