In another story of how the modern world is changing in strange and mysterious ways, a patient who requested a female nurse for an intimate procedure received an unpleasant surprise.
The British woman was to undergo a cervical smear and being that her private parts would be exposed, she wanted it to be done by a member of her own sex. It is only natural that such a request would be made and one would think that there would be no problem.
Instead, she got a tweener as much to her surprise and dismay, the “nurse” that showed up was covered with tattoos and had stubble. When the woman questioned why he/she had been assigned to her, the person calmly explained to her that he was not a male but rather a transgender.

Via the Sunday Times “The female NHS nurse I asked for came with stubble”:
A woman who requested a female NHS nurse to perform her cervical smear test was “embarrassed and distressed” after a person with stubble and a deep voice summoned her for the intimate procedure.
When the patient pointed out the mistake, the nurse replied: “My gender is not male. I’m a transsexual.”
This weekend, the woman, who decided not to go ahead with the examination, said it was “weird where somebody says to you: ‘My gender is not male’ and you think: ‘Well, what does that even mean? You are clearly a man.’ ”
The nurse “had an obviously male appearance . . . close-cropped hair, a male facial appearance and voice, large number of tattoos and facial stubble”, she said.
The woman received an official NHS apology after she made a complaint about her treatment.
The story comes as jolly old England considers making it easier for a person to change their gender to whatever that they please which will almost certainly lead to more incidents like the one in this particular hospital and a good deal of embarrassment for both individuals and institutions.
The Times elaborates:
The incident has been revealed as Justine Greening, the equalities minister and education secretary, is considering proposals that would allow people to change their gender legally without a doctor’s diagnosis.
The Sunday Times reported last week that a consultation on the changes to the Gender Recognition Act had been delayed amid claims Greening was getting cold feet about self-certification.
The patient said it was “bad enough for a fortysomething mother”, but the effect of such an incident on her 17-year-old daughter would have been much worse.
James Casian, a psychotherapist who specialises in working with transgender people, said these kind of awkward situations would become more common if self-certification went ahead. “Politicians have not thought through all the implications of allowing self-certification,” he said.
That a female would be uncomfortable with a person who is technically a man as defined by actual nature (example: stubble and a penis) is a concept totally lost on the left. This is especially the case with those who have been waging a cultural war in America to throw public women’s restrooms open to transvestites which has fortunately subsided somewhat since Barack Obama left the White House.
The world continues to change but unfortunately, it’s not changing for the better thanks to the liberal elite.
