    Assuming gender can be classified as male or female only, breast cancer is not an exclusively female disease.

    I LOL'd at the guy/girl for identifying as male without gender reassignment surgery. That tells me she's just a pissed off bitch for being physiologically male and biologically female (aka: confused).

    Aside from my personal feelings, the doc should be shot in the head for not treating this person as a person.

    I don't give a fuck what gender a person is, or claims to be. If the person has a disease, that person should be treated for it. Now if only we could get the entire medical community to feel the same way. It's sad that they don't. icon_sad.gif

    Doctor should have his licence revoked without question.

    There was at least one case of a man who died of cervical cancer. icon_eek.gif

    He received some cancerous cells during a transplant.
