Sex-change madness: DC says taxpayers must make dude look like a lady

There is bizarre and then there is just plain absurd. In another case of government telling the private sector what to do – this time in the area of healthcare – the absurdity knows no bounds.

As reported by the Associated Press, “Insurance companies in the District of Columbia have been ordered to stop denying coverage to transgender residents seeking gender-reassignment surgery. Mayor Vincent Gray says the new rules will end health-care discrimination against the transgender population. The district joins five states that guarantee such coverage.”

A bulletin issued Thursday by the city’s Department of Insurance, Securities and Banking says that gender dysphoria is a recognized medical condition. It says the various forms of treatment for that condition, including sex-change procedures, are covered benefits.

So my immediate question is, will Medicaid be used to cover these treatments as well? Are American taxpayers now footing the bill for someone to have a sex-change operation? How does that get equal billing with cancer and diabetes?

This is yet another example of a different type of medical condition: liberal progressive mental disorder. Consider the Massachusetts case where a federal appeals court in Boston upheld a judge’s ruling that a transsexual inmate convicted of murder is entitled to a taxpayer-funded sex change operation as treatment for her (he is a dude) severe gender identity disorder.

According to Boston.com, in a ruling that was a first of its kind, a three-judge panel of the US Court of Appeals for the First Circuit said courts must not shy away from enforcing the rights of all people, including prisoners. “And receiving medically necessary treatment is one of those rights, even if that treatment strikes some as odd or unorthodox,” the court said.

So now a taxpayer-funded sex change operation is a right?

The ruling came in the case of convicted wife killer Michelle L. Kosilek. Formerly named Robert Kosilek, she (he is a dude) struggled for years with feelings that she was a woman inside a man’s body. Kosilek’s wife, Cheryl, thought she could cure Kosilek, the court said. But Kosilek strangled her in Mansfield in 1990 and dumped her body in a car at a mall in North Attleborough. Mayor Gray says people with gender dysphoria, also known as gender identity disorder, “should not have to pay exorbitant out-of-pocket expenses for medically necessary treatment.”

So this is how it works folks, progressive socialists — and the gay special interest lobby — find complicit medical professionals to support their assertions. Since gender dysphoria has been declared a valid medical condition, it has to be treated.

The hormone treatments and elaborate surgical procedures are just another new healthcare insurance cost to be shared by others. This is right up there with the insanity in Texas when some rich kid who killed four people in a drunk driving accident was declared to be suffering from a medical condition called “affluenza.” Whiskey-Tango-Foxtrot!

I hear beard implants are now popular — could that be due to “duckdynastitis?”

If someone wants to alter the parts that God game him/her It is an elective surgical procedure which the individual should pay for themselves. Should the Medicaid and private insurance companies also pay for the change in wardrobe as someone awaits surgery?

Doggone, these liberal progressives just go along and make stuff up to achieve their demented agenda. In the progressive world, no one is responsible for anything. And everyone’s emotions and sentiments can be classified as some condition, which the government (read liberal progressives) must take care of — actually the hardworking American taxpayer must pay for.

If you’re a fella and not happy with being a fella, and want to be a girl, that’s your individual choice. You want to alter your body? Go right ahead and write a check.

And don’t give me all that special interest medical condition rhetoric. My taxpayer dollars should not be used this way. Nor should I have to assume the cost of this in my own private healthcare insurance plan.

Thus is sooooo ridiculous! If we have to pay for this crap, then I want a “boob job and a face lift”!! I’m “traumatized” cause I’ve always had itty boobs..and now I’m getting wrinkles…waaaa! boo-hoo

May I also say me too! Do you think that this insanity will ever end? or are we doomed forever? God help us.

They pay for this but millions of mentally ill are roaming the streets because they can’t get treatment or there are no beds available. This crash as to stop!

I’m only concerned for our Veterans. Please remember them and contact your representatives. Let them know that they will never get your vote again until they reverse the bill that cuts their benefits to a disgraceful pittance. Please make your voice heard. God Bless our Military and God Bless those who have sacrificed their lives for us. Please allow them to have some dignity. Thank you for reading my post.

Dee

Patti, you are absolutely spot on here. If one wants to change their gender physically, then they should pay for all of it…no insurance coverage for this nonsense. There are many chronically ill people including the legit mentally ill who have no insurance coverage and are begging for some type of medical care and dying in the process of waiting.

OK — so is gender dysphoria a mental disorder or not? The DSM-III (circa 1980) removed homosexuality as a mental illness, unless the person was unhappy about being homosexual. The current DSM-V (released last year) doesn’t mention homosexuality at all as a mental illness (whether you’re unhappy about it or not). Gender dysphoria is saying the same thing about being transgendered — it’s only a problem if it bothers you. But here’s the issue: How can a mental illness be cured with a physical change? If you’re unhappy that you were born male, taking a weedwacker to your privates is… Read more »

They should leave them in the male facility, then old Bubba

The entitlements never end for the victim class. The idea that some people are unhappy with their reality cannot be tolerated. Since the left is all about feelings, this unhappy feeling must be fixed. How? Why we will just ignore the laws of nature and change your reality. Simple right? The progressives are so detached from reality yet they call themselves the reality based community. It is part of their denial. Liberalism is a very deep psychological disorder.

I’m unhappy about a lot of things from time to time. I just suck it up and go on! What’s wrong with all of these people who have to have everything just the way they want it ? Including that kind of coverage just makes the cost of everyone else’s to go up.

Bonnie McCollett

Because theres a liberal based bledding heart group for every struggle there is now..people no longer have to have strength

zulu

Well, I’d say there’s a lot of truth to that. I guess they will weaken the nation bit by bit and then take it over. That’s pretty much what Kruschev said many years ago. So many of the people in this country don’t have a clue as to what is going on around them.

D. Lenore Hutchens
Guest
Haven’t heard anyone mention Kruschev in a long time. That was the plan, and it appears to be working. Someone I do hear people mention from time to time is McCarthy. Like simply asking a question (in a free nation) was a bad thing. He was only suggesting that the people FDR had in high positions be vetted. Communism was a bad thing back then. What’s funny . . . McCarthy was right. There were communists in his administration. Declassified some years ago (late 1990’s maybe) the Venona Project. Interesting read.

I had forgotten about McCarthy. I was younger then, however, i do remember seeing him on a TV and people were talking about him like he was nutts. He was really shaking the place up looking for Communist! Looks like he wasn’t so crazy. They pretty much ran him out of town.

so I guess now one of these transgenders who can’t afford the surgery,, can now hold up a liquor store, go to prison, get the surgery which cost $100’s of thousands of dollars, then gets out of prison all “fixed up” in 7 or less years at taxpayer expense!

Disgusting!!! The law makers are going against what the people would want, once again! Our country is so screwed right now. It has changed after 911, and in a weird way. 911 should have pulled us together, but the left just went batshit crazy. Well, crazier.

Reba

Think about this. You have millions of individuals that paid for their own Health Care and lost it because of Obama Care. Some of these individuals have cancer and were in the middle of treatment and have been left hanging. Now we have a judge that is willing to use tax payer’s money for a sex change for someone in prison, but our Administration is not willing to help someone that needs treatment? Everyone in this country should be calling and raising hell.

So, we;ve finally taken away God’s decision on what our gender should be. We’ve turned away from Him in America and this is what we’re left with…….

D. Lenore Hutchens

You’re right. The original lie in the Garden of Eden. Disobey God and “you shall be like God, knowing good and evil.” And here we are . . . thinking we are god, not only this stupidity, but we have a right(?) to choose life or death. Not to mention we (liberals) think we’re are as powerful as God, that we can destroy with cars and aerosol cans, what we didn’t create.

msgermss
Guest

Our govt. is continually trying to destroy this country and they are coming at it from several different directions. If someone wants gender reassignment then they should pay for it…..not the taxpayer. This entire escapade is ridiculous and just an example of how pathetic we have become. It’s okay for folks to do what they want with their body but not on my dime….

Next up – “Trans-species”. There may one day be a right to change from human to another species. And those operations will be darned expensive.

Shouldn’t be that expensive as most won’t need much modification.

So now this administration wants to use my tax deductions from my small paycheck to allow single mothers to stay home should they chose and now sex changes. I imagine everyone of our Founding Fathers is rolling over in their graves. We are becoming one sick nation.

I for one am all for it, but I think it should be a do it yourself operation.
Just give them a sharp knife and a box of Band-aids and tell them to
have at it.

DustyFae

I agree with you. I think this is crazy.. no treatment for cancer people or kids and something as stupid as this. .Many of those operation go wrong any ways, may be they will get what they deserve, ,I heard many of horror stories about this…

finabiscotti
Guest

I know about a couple of cases = both were men wanting to become women – and dressing as women for years.
However, once the operation from male-to-female occurred, they both were only attracted to other women.
One of the male-to-female subjects, committed suicide – leaving a note that he/she did not go through the difficult transition – to become a lesbian.

Jenny

I agree with you, your mom should’ve let you do that to yourself.

What I find odd is that my daughter needs a breast reduction because her spine is being damaged by her abundance of breast and yet the insurance company will NOT cover it because it is considered cosmetic surgery. She has health reasons to get the surgery but nobody cares. Claim you’re the wrong sex and the government will hand you millions of dollars to “fix” you.

DustyFae
Guest

I have a daughter in law the same way… and think about all the cancer people who does not get their treatments , especially the kids… We have sick people in our government, like crazy deranged druggies…

Reba
Guest

If a doctor writes it down correctly and it is a medically necessary procedure that is causing health problems, they should cover it. I know of other women that had it done, because of their back and shoulders.

Imtoooldforthis

3 different doctors have tried to get the okay. Now with the ACA she’s going to try again. I told her if she’s denied she should sue the government because it would be discrimination. I hope it’s lucky fourth time.

The individual’s rights end where their actions begin to impose upon the rights of others. If Patrick wants to become Patricia, whatever mutilation to the body that is required to make the transition should be paid for out of Patrick/Patricia’s pocket…not out of the pockets of the community at large.

I find it unfortunate and unappealing when the only way some posters can get a point across is by attacking another poster personally. This does not add to the discussion at all. Personal attacks do not reflect intelligence or perspective. They show an individual with low thinking ability and school yard behavior.

It seems this government would rather give handluts to “beggers”, than pay “workers” who actually already have earned the money! Government should halt about 90% of the “freebees” to the sick, lame and lazy, and pay our veterans and retirees who have earned it! Government entitlements, (something for nothing which shouldn’t even exist), should always come after all other debts are paid for!

They can’t get the VA to work the claims of our wounded but they can work the claims of prisoners.

You can take the lion out of Africa paint it blue cut it’s hair, but it is still a lion, whether you give it a sex change or not. It is still a lion, changing a guilty mans body to a woman will not make this new”person” any less guilty of murder or any less likely that he/she will do it again.

After all, I never dreamed in my lifetime that the media – no matter what the political slant – would try to seduce the American people into believing that someone’s “beautiful shoulders” are more important than people misrepresenting themselves as “distinguished attorneys” – during a presidential campaign – had not had licenses to practice law in over SIXTEEN years, and had lost their licenses to practice law – because of their fraudulent activities.

Maybe the liberal media is trying to soften the blow for Transgendering –
since Eric Holder was hospitalized, Holder feeling faint and having a shortness of breath = Eric resigning, being fired or retiring – to be re-hired as EricA Holder – for The Obamas to get a clean slate.

Ok, let’s allow medical insurance providers to just completely and totally ignore the international standards of medical care. Why not?

Chuck Chuckson

There’s no such thing as “International Standards of Medical Care”. I guarantee that you won’t get the same “standard of care” in a Haitian hospital as you would at the Mayo clinic.

Erin Ashley Hedges
Guest

Yeah, actually, you would. Any doctor who could afford to get their medical license is required to follow a strict standard of care, or face losing it in their country

Chuck Chuckson
Guest

If you really believe that, then I expect you will go to Haiti for any gender reassignment surgery you may have in the future. After all, “the standards of care are the same”, and you’ll save a lot of money. lol

Chuck Chuckson

Is there ANYTHING you’re not hopelessly confused about?

Erin Ashley Hedges

Just about everything, actually. In fact, I seem to be the only one in any of our conversations that actually had any knowledge about what they spoke of. I could provide mountains of documentation to back up my arguments, Literally the only thing you ever come up with is “you’re confused”. Your argument has less weight than Ken Ham’s repeated attempts to use the bible as proof of creation. At least he has some form of documentation, you have absolutely nothing at all. And you never will, because science disagrees with you 100%
