At the University of Arkansas, there’s been a major change.

Previously, the school’s Pat Walker Health Center operated a campus “Women’s Clinic.” But recently, those in charge hankered for something less limiting.

Hence, the medical center’s now called the “GYN Clinic.”

According to The College Fix, an email about the upgrade invokes importance.

From Registered Health Information Administrator Director of Medical Services A.J. Olsen:

“This name change is important, as the Pat Walker Health Center affirms diversity and aims to create a welcoming environment for all patients.”

It’s an interesting idea: Would the name of a medical center — otherwise known as a place responding to medical urgency — deter a patient in mid-need? How many non-Christians have been repelled away by a St. John’s or a Baptist Hospital?

Perhaps society has changed; and, as they say, “representation matters.”

So if you’re a guy, the “GY(n)” center’s ready. And if “gynecology” matches your unmentionables, that’s on offer, too.

The Fix reached out to UofA over its moniker makeover:

School spokesman John Thomas told The Fix in an email that the name change “was not necessary per se” but that the clinic “just felt GYN better aligned with medical terminology regarding the services the clinic provides.”
Thomas said the cost of making the change was “negligible if any,” as the name can “simply be revised online at no cost.”

Feminist attorney — and Women’s Human Rights Campaign U.S. chapter President — Kara Dansky doesn’t appear impressed by the medical alignment. “These clinics say that they are doing this in order to be more ‘inclusive,’” she said, but “what they are really doing is obliterating the material reality of biological sex.”

In November, the Democrat waxed as follows to Fox News (Trigger Warning):

“My party has been pushing this gender identity agenda in law and throughout society, and it’s terrible for women and girls. … Every single person is either female or male. There’s nothing wrong with saying that. ‘Transgender’ isn’t real. It was simply made up to persuade people that there’s some coherent category of people for whom sex is irrelevant. That is not true, and we should not be afraid to say so. Regardless of where we land on the political aisle.”

Either way, Arkansas certainly isn’t doing something unique. Women aren’t getting the recognition previously procured:

‘Good Morning America’ Issues a COVID PSA About ‘Pregnant People’

Breastfeeding Academy Bails on ‘Breasts’

Hospitals Are Starting to Ask Men if They’re Pregnant

University Schools Midwifery Students on the Handling of the Birthing Penis

‘The Practising Midwife’ Magazine Releases Transgender Issue Featuring Bearded Birthing Parent

Even for Women’s History Month, the traditional term couldn’t be tossed a bone:

University Whacks ‘Women’s’ History Month, Hails the Wonders of ‘Womxn’

Will women go the way of the dodo bird? For all the cultural talk of “erasure,” as a class, they’re getting regularly rubbed.

Every now and then, however, a comeback occurs:

Even so, for those wanting services related to cervixes, at the University of Arkansas, being a “woman” is neither here nor there.
