Med Schools Are Now Denying Biological Sex
"I said 'when a woman is pregnant,' which implies that only women can get pregnant and I most sincerely apologize to all of you." It wasn't the first time Lauren had heard an instructor apologize for using language that, to most Americans, would seem utterly inoffensive. Words like "male" and "female." Why would medical school professors apologize for referring to a patient's biological sex? Because, Lauren explains, in the context of her medical school "acknowledging biological sex can be considered transphobic."
