NOT THE ONION: Outrage After Doctor Diagnoses Woman as ‘Homosexual’

LGBT activists reacted with outrage this week after a doctor in southeastern Spain gave a lesbian patient a piece of paper that identified her illness as “homosexual.”

WHAT HAPPENED

The patient, a 19-year-old woman, went to Reina Sofía hospital in Murcia on Monday seeking treatment for a menstrual condition and left in tears, the Guardian reported.

  • “We find it alarming, unacceptable and intolerable that there are professionals today who are responsible for our health, but who ignore the realities of LGBTI people,” Galactyo said in a statement Wednesday.
  • Neither the patient or the doctor has been publicly identified.

A spokesperson for the regional health service told told Spanish news site elDiario.es Wednesday that a mistake appeared to have been made “when the patient’s details were taken” and promised to investigate further and apologize to the patient.

“At first, I thought it was funny, but it just isn’t,” the patient said.

SAME ENERGY

LGBT activists have launched a campaign to “cancel” superstar comedian Dave Chappelle over jokes he told about transgender and gay people in his Netflix stand-up special that premiered Tuesday.

  • But Chappelle received a standing ovation at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles Thursday and joked, “If this is what being canceled is like, I love it.”
