Liberal Doctors Seek To Rename Human Anatomy To Make Them More PC, No Joke
Liberals are looking to erase history, getting rid of everything and anything that they find could be offensive to someone. Here in the United States, they have been tearing down historical statues, rebranding food that they feel has a checkered past, and sports teams are looking into new names. But in Australia, they are taking it up a notch with their cancel culture and have decided to attack the names of human anatomy. I guess nothing is safe from liberals easily offended gaze.
"Australian doctors are calling for people to stop using terms named after 'men, kings, and gods' to describe body parts - such as Adam's apple and Achilles heel. Queensland specialist obstetrician, gynecologist, and anatomy lecturer, Dr. Kristin Small, teaches students to phase out the irrelevant and misogynistic medical language. She believes the terms represent older generations and is pushing to use more practical and descriptive terms for body parts. 'I think we have a personal choice to decolonize our language and these historical terms will fade out,' Dr. Small told the Courier-Mail."
Dr. Small said she makes sure her students still know eponyms for exam purposes and says there are always alternatives for the 'dead man's name'. Eponyms are parts of the body that are named after a person, yet women are not represented in most of the 700 parts of the body named after people. "
"Dr. Nisha Khot, a council member for the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, is also teaching young doctors to start using alternative terminology, the news outlet reported.
Khot said she thinks many of the older terms will eventually become obsolete.
"The young trainee doctors are mostly keen to learn the more relevant language and are often shocked when they hear the origins of some medical terms," she said. "The push for change may have started in the area of women's health but the conversation is now in the wider health community. It just makes sense for the medics but also for the patients to use more understandable terms."
I can't wait for my adam's apple to get a new, because that's what we all need, additional confusion in the medical field where simple parts of the body have numerous P.C. names. Sir do you mean your nonbinary throat apple?
