MacDoctor in Trouble

This is incredibly disappointing – and concerning.

An Auckland doctor has been stood down after a complaint about his posts on the Whaleoil blog.

Jim McVeagh, who works at Westgate Medical Centre, said he was behind the online profile “MacDoctor”.

He said McVeagh’s patients should know that he held such views, particularly if they were from the groups concerned. “I think it’s unacceptable as a medical practitioner to be writing these sorts of things, then going to see these patients.”

Westgate Medical Centre said McVeagh had been stood down while an investigation was conducted.

And his views are?

“The … posts are general observations from my practice and reflect my experience. I treat my gay and transsexual patients with empathy and respect but I hold no love for people who use them to drive their own agendas…My opinions are mine and do not represent my place of work in any way, of course.”

I’ve met Jim, he’s a great guy, very sensible and a doctor of many decades of experience. His blog was always a worth-while read.

But only people with the right opinions, even opinions formed through years of observation, can be allowed in NZ society it seems.


Pregnant “Man”

Wow, is this a world first? A pregnant man? Well, that’s the way the MSM is telling it.

A man is reportedly pregnant with a baby girl.

A transgender man in the US – who kept his female reproductive organs – Thomas Beatie, of Oregon, is reportedly due in July after deciding to carry a baby for his wife, Nancy, who underwent a hysterectomy years ago.

Beatie, who had surgery to his chest to look like a man and also underwent testosterone therapy, said he decided to try to conceive after the couple discussed the prospect of him carrying the child.

He told The Advocate magazine for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender readers that his periods resumed about four months after stopping bimonthly testosterone injections.

It’s one thing to call someone a Man who was born a Woman but has chosen to switch. But it’s quite another to keep calling that person a Man when that person has reactivated his/her femaleness.

Oh, there’s also some doubt about the claims.

The article was accompanied by a photo of Beatie with a hand on his protruding belly. But a neighbour of the couple has claimed the whole story is a hoax.

“Quite frankly, I think it’s a hoax,” neighbour Ron Schlieper told the Portland television station KATU.

“I saw him a few days ago and he didn’t look like that.”

Beatie said the couple’s decision had exposed them to discrimination and anger by people who did not understand their choice.

He said doctors had refused to treat them, while other medical workers had refused to recognise Nancy as his wife.

“Friends and family have been unsupportive; most of Nancy’s family doesn’t even know I’m transgender,” he said.

Hm, sounds a bit fishy to me. Especially the stuff about doctors refusing treatment, that would be unethical surely?

It wouldn’t be the first time someone made up a story like this to try and silence their critics by generating wide spread outrage and sympathy.
