BEND, OR — After discussing preferred pronouns during a routine medical exam, a doctor then asked for his patient's actual gender because they had no idea what they were looking at.

"It says on your chart that your preferred pronouns are 'tey/ter.' That's all well and good, but what's your actual gender?" Dr. James DeOrio reportedly asked his blue-haired patient. "I need to know what I'm supposed to be looking at, you know, down there."

The patient, whose name has been withheld due to privacy concerns, was agitated by the doctor's persistent questioning. "What does that have to do with anything?" tey asked, holding out ter hands while asking for "one gender change, please."

Dr. DeOrio took it upon himself to educate his patient on the importance of biological sex in medical treatment before clarifying that there was no such thing as a magical gender-changing pill.

"Something may have to be cut off," Dr. DeOrio said.

At publishing time, Dr. James DeOrio was canceled.
