Gynecology for everyone!

So gynecologists are supposed to do what now?

An LGBTI rights organization in France is calling on the Minister of Equality to intervene in the case of a gynecologist who they are accusing of “transphobia.”

On September 8, SOS Homophobie, which describes itself as a “national association against LGBTIphobia” took to X (formerly Twitter) to condemn a gynecologist for stating he only provided services to females. The comment from Dr. Victor Acharian, who operates in the Pau region, was made in reply to a Google review he received in which a trans-identified male’s partner complained that Acharian refused to provide services to him.

But…I don’t like to be indelicate, but what services can a gynecologist provide to a man? Does the complainant understand what a gynecologist is? Does he think it just means GP who treats exclusively women?

He says he’s not competent to treat MEN even if they’ve shaved off their beards and told his secretary that they’re women. His GYNECOLOGICAL examination table is not adapted to examine men.

Seriously, do these guys want him to try to ram a speculum into their testicles?

In their X post on Acharian, SOS Homophobie wrote: “We denounce the transphobes and discriminatory remarks of gynecologist Victor Acharian in Pau. Transphobia is a reality with serious consequences, particularly in access to health. It affects the entire territory.” 

Bodies are a reality too, particularly in access to health. Men really do not want gynecologists trying to look up them.
