So today it happened. The inevitable. I got hit with paperwork asking for my pronouns and gender. At the f’ing gynecologist’s office! Sure, it’s good they finally got around to asking for your sexual orientation, but it was on the same line of questions, so I didn’t fill it in either. But of heaven’s sake, why should a on/gyn have to ask your gender now? If I were the doctor I’d be so furious at the thought of any man wasting my time by coming in cosplaying I’d have a sign on the door saying I only treat people born as women. But of course he can’t, because there’d be assholes protesting his office and it would end up in the Post. I wanted to ask the doctor how he felt about adding those questions to the info paperwork but knew I’d get so worked up that in itself would cause an incident. So instead, I’m shouting about it here, one of like two places outside my house where I can express not my opinion, but the actual FACTS about REALITY. Women: adult female people. Full stop. 😡🤬

I always cross out gender and replay with sex. If my gyno asked me some shit like that I’d lose it too. She cut my belly open to deliver a whole-ass baby, I don’t have time for such no nonsense.

That’s what I don’t get about gender woo woo. If a woman wants to call herself a man, by all means do so, but why does it have to involve the rest of us? Call yourself whatever the hell you want, but leave the rest of us alone.

^ ^ ^ my thoughts exactly. WHY does this have to involve a single other person ever?

Thankfully, I didn't encounter any gender woo when I recently had my baby. I would have gone mental!

Jfc. I can't even. I'm pretty sure if I got asked my pronouns at the vagina doctor I would have a big terf monolog

What's really sick is I'm sure they filled it in for you.

HOW did this extreme male sexual fetish go mainstream like this?

Because we’re in a pornified, depraved, child abusing misogynistic society.

I crossed out the bullshit questions with a big x and wrote: I am a female!

Pissed me off beyond belief. Everything is contaminated now.

X that shit out on the paperwork. How ridiculous.

I think everything is just going that way. My gyno’s office is now in a large medical system and I expect when I see her next, I’ll have to fill out that paperwork. She’s caught two babies for me so she definitely knows I’m female and she’s older and no nonsense, so I bet she’s laughed herself silly at the pronoun stuff.

Same thing just happened to me. I answered the sex question, but left the gender and pronouns stuff blank 🙄

I was recently asked at an intake my gender and I responded "female" and they clarified "assigned at birth?" which annoyed me because I was all set to rant about how I am not "cis", but the whole "assigned at birth" thing really threw me for a loop and all I thought to say was yes.

I would have said "actual female"

[–] rad-sage-fem 1 points (+1|-0)

yeah, that' s a good idea! It was a verbal intake though so I feel like whatever I would have said would have turned into them lecturing me about what it all means, like surely you're responding this way because you're not educated?

Playing dumb can actually work sometimes in exposing the ridiculousness of the gender woo
