Blame Conservatives and Their Austerity Measures for Why LGBTQ Healthcare Sucks in the UK
- It’s 2013, and I’m about to receive my first ever smear test. I’m talking with the nurse before the whole “cold things going in intimate places” business starts. She asks about my sexual history, and I tell her what I’ve carefully rehearsed: I’ve never had sexual intercourse involving a penis. She looks confused for a minute, then leaves the room. She brings someone else in, and they ask the same question. When I give the same reply, they talk for a minute or two like I’m not there. Then they both leave. I wait until I get bored enough to pull my phone out, then wait some more. The nurse returns.
