    CDC gets list of forbidden words: Fetus, transgender, diversity

    The Trump administration is prohibiting HHS agencies from using certain words and phrases in official documents being prepared for the 2018 budget.

    By Lena H. Sun and Juliet Eilperin
    December 15

    The Trump administration is prohibiting officials at the nation’s top public health agency from using a list of seven words or phrases — including “fetus” and “transgender” — in official documents being prepared for next year’s budget.

    Policy analysts at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta were told of the list of forbidden terms at a meeting Thursday with senior CDC officials who oversee the budget, according to an analyst who took part in the 90-minute briefing. The forbidden terms are “vulnerable,” “entitlement,” “diversity,” “transgender,” “fetus,” “evidence-based” and “science-based.”

    In some instances, the analysts were given alternative phrases. Instead of “science-based” or *“evidence-based,” the suggested phrase is “CDC bases its recommendations on science in consideration with community standards and wishes,” the person said. In other cases, no replacement words were immediately offered.

    What would a couple be supposed to do if they had a vulnerable, transgender fetus and needed to rely on entitlements to help the child once it was born? Would the Trump administration be in denial of science based evidence which would help such a child and allow us to accept more readily such diversity? ;)

    Not completely sure how you get a 'transgender' fetus?

    Chucky? What Chucky? I don't see any Chucky.

    Brent, that was (obviously) an attempt to use all the banned terms within a couple of lines, and pretty successfully if I say so myself. A fetus could be hermaphroditic, which might result in a transgender identity in regards to the child's genetic configuration, and perhaps medical procedures to make the person's appearance match his or her identity, so, while technically, transgender people are not fetuses, the fetus might have the makings of a transgender person already present. In fact, many researchers think that both sexual orientation and sexual identity are already being programmed into the brains of fetuses one way or another by events that happen during fetal development. Usually, the developing brain is programmed so that genetic gender matches with both sexual orientation and sexual identity, but not always. Events after birth may also affect gender identity, so it's probably not as simple as things like hormonal influences during pregnancy.

    How descriptive! Now we know what......plastic assistive devices......you've been using to pleasure yourself with! Hope she doesn't chafe you!

    A group of the agency’s policy analysts said senior officials at the CDC informed them about the banned words on Thursday, according to the Post’s report. In some cases, the analysts were reportedly given replacement phrases to use instead.

    But in follow-up reporting, The New York Times cited “a few” CDC officials who suggested the move was not meant as an outright ban, but rather, a technique to help secure Republican approval of the 2019 budget by eliminating certain words and phrases.

    A spokesperson for the Department of Health and Human Services, which oversees the CDC, said the reported decree on banned words was a misrepresentation.


    So, this "technique" is intended by the Trump administration to pander to conservative Republicans in order to get his already dubious budget passed by promoting and imposing their mouthbreathing mentality on CDC policy. Is it any surprise that Fitzgerald, a teabagger and Trump-appointee, is trying to spin this new policy as a "not-ban"?

    OHH no, partisanship amongst a Trump appointed official, pot calling kettle black.. oh wait that's politically incorrect, how about hypocrisy much??? Sally Yates, Eric Holder, Lynch, and just about 99.9 percent of Obama appointed officials towing the Obama line, GTFOH with your partisan example. All you need to know is "according to" the post report. Get your fake news right here folks delivered by paperboy or papergirl Quagga!
