    Not a cult.

    • "Trans rights are men's rights" if you follow the right hashtagsi_monk
    • I try not to follow any of this as it's even more depressing than C19 - yet here I am all the same with my opinions, male that I am.Nairn

    • To be fair to CNN, they are just quoting exactly what the original article says
    • @mono, so why not just say 'women with a cervix' -- even less 'complicated' derpGnash
    • I read this as an attempt to include trans-men with cervixes rather than not exclude trans-women without cervixes.
      Wrap your head around that one!
    • @Gnash, I don't know, I don't even care. It's really not my business, but a cervix is a cervix, and it can get cancer.monospaced
    • The phrase 'Cervix Charges' popped into mind and now I can't help but think how many I've had over the years.
      Not as many as Trump.
    • Transmen get 'cervixes' made from penile tissue, so do you call it cervical cancer or penile cancer? Trick Q: If you call it penile cancer you're a transphobe.i_monk
    • (er, typo, transwomen get that surgery)i_monk
    • https://twitter.com/… Half of women don't know what a cervix is, so this language excludes women toi_monk
