Male Blood Donor, 66, Turned Away From Clinic After He Refused to Answer a Question on Whether He Was Pregnant as Part of a Pre-Donation Questionnaire

Woke hospitals won’t let you donate blood if you’re a male who refuses to answer the question if you’re pregnant, but they’ll let biological women patients of theirs get raped in women’s only hospital wards by men who identify as women.

If you’re the type of person who likes to argue passionately about YEC or climate change, and love to accuse evangelicals, Trump voters, or Republicans of being “anti-science,” in light of news stories like this one, you can shut your hypocritical pie hole any time.

I cannot take you seriously when you argue, “men can get pregnant and women have penises, and transwomen should be allowed in women’s prisons and women’s only areas,” and then insist that YEC people, or people who disagree about the extent of, or solution for, climate change, are “anti science.”

Man denied giving blood after refusing to answer if he was pregnant

June 20, 2022

A Scottish man was turned away from a blood donation center because he refused to indicate whether he was pregnant, according to a report.

A 66-year-old man in the United Kingdom who’s been donating blood for nearly 50 years was turned away from a clinic last week because he wouldn’t answer an apparently new question on a form that asks if the prospective blood donor is pregnant, the Daily Mail reported.

The director of the Scottish National Blood Transfusion Service told the outlet that the agency has a “duty to promote inclusiveness — therefore all donors are now asked the same questions.”

Leslie Sinclair — who has donated 125 pints of blood in his life — was told he had to answer a part of the form that asks if he’s expecting a child or has been pregnant in the past six months, the Daily Mail said, adding that pregnant women must wait six months after giving birth to donate blood.

Over nearly 50 years, Leslie Sinclair has given a formidable 125 pints of blood.

But on his last trip he was turned away after refusing to answer a question on whether or not he was pregnant.

Mr Sinclair, 66, was told to fill in a form which asked whether he was expecting a child or had been pregnant in the past six months.

When he complained that as a man in his 60s this question did not apply and he should not have to answer it, Mr Sinclair said staff at the clinic told him they could not accept his blood.

Testosterone and Traffic: Men More Dangerous Drivers Than Women, Study Finds

LONDON — Men have always been considered a bit more hot-headed than women, but does that really make them more dangerous on the road? According to a new study, men indeed pose a bigger threat to other drivers than women. Men were also found to be more likely to drive more dangerous vehicles.

The research team believe their findings should prompt more gender equity when it comes to hiring for road transport jobs.

Today, men fill the majority of these positions.

‘I literally lost organs:’ Why detransitioned teens regret changing genders

At 12 years old, Chloe Cole decided she was transgender. At 13, she was put on puberty blockers and prescribed testosterone. At 15, she underwent a double mastectomy. Less than a year later, she realized she’d made a mistake.

“I was failed by the system. I literally lost organs.”

When Chloe was 12 years old, she decided she was transgender. At 13, she came out to her parents. That same year, she was put on puberty blockers and prescribed testosterone. At 15, she underwent a double mastectomy. Less than a year later, she realized she’d made a mistake — all by the time she was 16 years old.

Now 17, Chloe is one of a growing cohort called “detransitioners” — those who seek to reverse a gender transition, often after realizing they actually do identify with their biological sex. Tragically, many will struggle for the rest of their lives with the irreversible medical consequences of a decision they made as minors.

“I can’t stay quiet,” said Chloe. “I need to do something about this and to share my own cautionary tale.”

In recent years, the number of children experiencing gender dysphoria in the West has skyrocketed. Exact figures are difficult to come by, but, between 2009 and 2019, children being referred for transitioning treatment in the United Kingdom increased 1,000% among biological males and 4,400% among biological females. Meanwhile, the number of young people identifying as transgender in the US has almost doubled since 2017, according to a new Centers for Disease Control & Prevention report.

Historically, transitioning from male to female was vastly more common, with this cohort typically experiencing persistent gender dysphoria from a very young age. Recently, however, the status quo has reversed, and female-to-male transitions have become the overwhelming majority.

Dr. Lisa Littman, a former professor of Behavioral and Social Sciences at Brown University, coined the term “rapid onset gender dysphoria” to describe this subset of transgender youth, typically biological females who become suddenly dysphoric during or shortly after puberty. Littman believes this may be due to adolescent girls’ susceptibility to peer influence on social media.

Comedian Joe Lycett has revealed that a fan who attended one of his recent gigs called the police – because found one of his jokes ‘too offensive’.

The Birmingham funnyman, 33, revealed he’d been questioned by police after they received the complaint about a joke that involved the phrase ‘giant donkey d***’.

On social media, Lycett shared the notice from police showing that the case was now closed and revealed his dismay at being reported in the first place.

He wrote: ‘So someone came to my tour show a few weeks back and was offended by one of the jokes. And their perfectly understandable response to this was… to call the f***ing police.

The percentage of Americans who say they believe in God has dipped to the lowest number in the past nearly 80 years, according to a new Gallup poll published Friday.

The Values and Belief poll, conducted from May 2 to 22, showed 81% of people answered that they believe in God. That is down six percentage points from the 87% of respondents who said they believed in God in the 2017 poll. This year is the lowest percentage in Gallup’s trend since the public opinion polling company first asked the question in 1944.

This year’s poll found 17% of Americans said they do not believe in God.

• Top Trans Medical Association Collaborated With Castration, Child Abuse Fetishists – by Genevieve Gluck

Top Trans Medical Association Collaborated With Castration, Child Abuse Fetishists – by Genevieve Gluck

If you’re supporting trans-activism without qualification, without acknowledging how some of these perverts are exploiting no delineations on, or recognition of, biological sex being binary, in order to sexually abuse or harass children (especially girls and women), and to do things such as steal spots on women’s sports teams from biological women, you’re supporting misogyny, sexism, and pedophilia. (But if you’re a far left liberal, that is your end goal.)

Top Trans Medical Association Collaborated With Castration, Child Abuse Fetishists

Snippets:

I recently spoke with Graham Linehan about an article I wrote for Reduxx.

Over the course of an investigation into a castration fetish forum which produces written child pornography stories, I discovered that prominent community members had worked with WPATH, the leading organization that devises protocols for the “transitioning” of minors.


The World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH),  the international association which sets guidelines for the medical ‘transitioning’ of children, has been collaborating with participants of a fetish forum that hosts and produces fictional child pornography and extreme sadomasochistic content.

… It [the WPATH document] also goes on to claim that “eunuch-identified people may suffer the same minority stress as other stigmatized groups,” and refers extensively to research collected from a hardcore fetish site called the Eunuch Archives — a site that features child sexual exploitation fantasies centered around stopping little boys from going through puberty.

… Notably, Usenet forums were the target of the FBI’s first investigations into internet-based pedophile rings, as it provided a space for organizing and exchanging of child sexual abuse materials, including written pornography.

[The article explains the history of an online group called The Eunuch Archive, where the members shared “castration fantasies,” and … “sought to connect with young men to “feminize”. One of the lead administrators of this group went by the name “Jesus,” who claimed to have worked on the DSM  and “WPATH’s newest Standards of Care draft”]

… In WPATH’s draft Standards of Care, the Eunuch Archive’s ‘Fiction Archive’ is directly acknowledged and named. But the document does not mention the large amount of stories within the archive that directly involve the sadistic sexual abuse of children.

Newborn Babies Could Be Harmed by Woke NHS-Backed Guidance Which States Transwomen Can Breastfeed By Taking Powerful Drug, Experts Warn

Transwomen are biological males with autogynephilia and narcissistic egos that need constant stroking. It’s more important that they get their narcissist supply and get their sexual fetishes affirmed than infants are treated safely.

The NHS is a UK based medical group, but I’ve seen American Trans-women-freaks online insist that they too can “breastfeed” babies.

(Link): Newborn babies could be harmed by woke NHS-backed guidance which states transwomen can breastfeed by taking powerful drug, experts warn

June 9, 2022
by John Ely

Newborn babies could be harmed by woke NHS-backed guidance that states transwomen can breastfeed, experts warned today.

Guidance from a charity — linked to on the controversial ‘chestfeeding’ advice page — states biological men who swap sex can stimulate milk supply using the Newman-Goldfarb protocol.

But the procedure, which involves taking a powerful drug called domperidone, has been mired in controversy.

It is effectively banned in the US because of its side effects.

NHS bosses only recommend it to women struggling to produce milk in some cases because domperidone carries a risk of giving a baby an irregular heartbeat.

Experts told MailOnline how scientists have ‘no idea about the implications’, and that the NHS should focus on improving access to breastfeeding rates for women.

• Top Gun Maverick Movie, Man Tears, and Hollywood’s Depiction of Men and Women 

Top Gun Maverick Movie, Man Tears, and Hollywood’s Depiction of Men and Women 

Let’s get some things out of the way up front.

I’m a conservative person (I am not a liberal, a feminist, a Democrat, or a progressive) who doesn’t buy into people being shamed or pressured into following traditional gender roles, nor do I agree that most aspects of traditional gender roles are accurate or inborne (maybe none are), but are due to social conditioning.

I am neither a Tom Cruise hater or fan; I don’t hate all men; I don’t have a problem with men crying openly when they’re feeling sad or moved, even if it’s because of a movie.
(This would go against Toxic Masculinity, which informs men that it’s shameful and weak to cry openly.)

I did see the original Top Gun movie years ago but haven’t gotten around to seeing the new Top Gun Maverick continuation of that first movie, but I’ve read that it’s gotten really wonderful reviews, it’s got really great, thrilling old school (non computer generated) special effects, and it’s made a ton of money  at the box office.

Eventually, I may want to see Top Gun Maverick, but as of the writing of this post, I have not viewed it. TopGunMaverick

On the one hand, I do not fully support the progressive take on popular entertainment, where the left tends to take beloved legacy, white, heterosexual male characters from 1970s, 1980s, or 1990s franchises and either race-, gender-, or sexuality-swap them out with black, lesbian, women, or, where they depict the once-competent white, male, hetero character as being an incompetent hack.

Usually, in today’s woke story telling, a competent female character has to rescue, save, or else “school” the white, hetero, male on how ignorant he is.

While I do agree that for too many years….

(too many classical (anti-woke) liberals and conservatives are in denial on this next point!),

….too much of popular entertainment centered white, hetero, male protagonists and almost always only featured women as the “mom” character, the “sexy” chick (eye candy for hetero men), or as a “wife” (who gets murdered, thus giving a motive to the male character to go out and kill), I think as of late, Hollywood has been too heavy handed and pedantic in how they are seeking to correct that balance.

If we’re being honest, for decades, in movies, the only strong female leads we got, and who were usually not overly sexualized and turned into eye candy for men, were a small, token smattering: Princess Leia; Ripley from Aliens; and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. (Well, we did got shots of Ripley walking around in her underwear and Leia in a metal bikini.)

For many years, the majority of fun, interesting, ass-kicking heroes in movies and shows (and comics and video games) were straight, white, men. That is the reality of it.

Three or four independent, take-charge women in over what, three to four decades? of time, do not make up for the avalanche, the unrelenting parade, of white, male characters that were shoved to the forefront of almost every movie and show over the decades.

For years, and in the 1980s movies in particular, a regular, human male, not a superhero – such as many characters played by a Sylvester Stallone type of action star – could easily fend off and fight off groups of other big, male adversaries in fight scenes, and bullets seemed to bounce off them (even though, again, these actors were not playing Superman-like characters with special powers and abilities).

In the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s, we had male “Mary Sue” tough guys who seemed immune to the many bullets sprayed their way by bad guys – male Mary Sue characters played by Clint Eastwood, Charles Bronson, Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Chuck Norris, Steven Seagal, and others.

I’ve come across several articles the last couple of weeks explaining that grown men have watched the new Tom Cruise Top Gun Maverick in movie theaters and have been moved to tears by the movie.

It’s bizarre to me that when Hollywood began writing more super hero female leads into movies and in television shows, such as Captain Marvel and Wonder Woman, conservatives and non-woke liberals, began complaining incessantly about how “woke” and “anti male” these movies were. (I didn’t see them complain so much back when Ripley and Leia were in movies back in the day.)

Captain Marvel

(Before I resume with that line of thought:

I did see the Captain Marvel movie a few years ago and have seen it several times repeated on cable television since then. CaptainMarvel

That Captain Marvel movie created such an uproar years ago, with incel men and some conservative men (sometimes these groups overlap!), and even in Christian blogs and magazines, complaining out the ying yang about how the movie was too “feminist” or too “anti male.”

The problem with the Captain Marvel movie was-

    • not that it had a strong female lead,
    • or in the film occasionally highlighting the casual, every day sexism that some men, yes, do in fact engage in against women (so many men are in denial on that point and resented it being shown in the Captain Marvel movie), or
    • not even necessarily actress Brie Larson’s “woke” commentary during the rounds of film promotion

-but that the movie was rather …  dull.

Captain Marvel was not terrible, but it was dull and bland. That was the problem with the movie.

The movie was average, but not a “fun” average. It was just kind of there.

These days if this movie comes on one of my cable channels, I may keep it on while I’m folding laundry, but I don’t pay it much attention as it’s playing.

Captain Marvel is not very engaging, and it’s not that re-watchable. I also feel the same about some male-led Marvel movies, such as “Thor: Dark World,” and “Iron Man 2” and “Iron Man 3;” those were all bland and dull as well.)

Hollywood including more strong, independent female leads is a welcome correction to decades of Hollywood’s default of always making the star of the show or hero of the story a hetero, white, man. I can agree with woke liberals on that much.

However, (and as I mentioned before in older posts), I don’t agree with taking this correction to the other extreme and portraying most every straight, white, male as a drooling doofus who needs to be led and corrected by a much-smarter, more-capable woman lead, of whatever skin color and sexuality.
