Psychiatric help, i agree. No surgery for these idiots.
Your name shows where you stand and it also shows you're nothing but a parrot issuing the junk science and "feel good" ideology of the Left. That "sliding scale of human experience" is nothing more than an effort to force 95% of the American population to accept the aberrations of the other 5%.
That 5% figure is really high.
Rounded up, benefit of the doubt. I know it's much less.
Chop your pecker off on your own nickle.
Ethics my patootie you Leftist. Any doctor worth his Hippocratic Oath (which they don't teach any more) wouldn't do it since they aren't supposed to do harm. It's unethical for doctors to perform the surgery and it's unethical for the government to force taxpayers to pay for this and most other elective surgery. Would you be okay for facelifts through Obamacare because someone "feels" ugly? In your case, yeah. You think the government belongs in Every aspect of American life.
Yes. I think Obama should personally read and approve EVERY elective and NON-ELECTIVE medical request and should not delay more the 12 hours from the time of submitting.
Not relevant to this discussion. Hermaphrodites are not transgenders. Transgenderism is a mental disorder. What's the label for your disorder? Oh yeah, liberalism.
The field of common sense.
Except when it comes to global warming.
Knew that was coming. Here's an article listing the doctor and facility. I believe you'll find he says doing the surgery is tantamount to medical malpractice, that some 80 percent of those having the surgery express regret over having had it at some point, and the suicide rate for transgenders is 20 times higher than that of the general population. Also, common sense. Does one do liposuction to treat anorexia? It is unfortunate that the supporters of transgenderism have been so wealthy and powerful. A lot of folks have died because of it. But hey, I'm not saying people shouldn't have that choice, because they should. I'm saying the government will all of its force has no business compelling other to pay for it. For all I care, amputate all your appendages. http://cnsnews.com/news/art...
LOL, McHugh, the chamption of pedophiles everywhere.
ICD9 and ICD10, read up...
See above. Somebody listed it.
You know damn well that's not the main purpose of this. And by the way, I don't want to pay for someone's sex change operation because they're "confused"
Why do I have to be forced to pay for it just because you want it. Are you going to pay for my hip surgery?
No, the decision to join an insurance pool is usually done on a voluntary basis. It is theft plain and simple. Since that theft represents the forced confiscation of the fruit of ones labor it can also be thought of as slavery. Leave it to a Democrat to endorse the notion of slavery.
It being confusing and difficult does not make it my wallet's problem. Unfortunate? Yes. My fiscal responsibility? No.
Many years ago when that occurred surgery was performed. Today they wait to see what the hormonal DNA says. Waiting for proof had occurred for twenty years now.
Using a name containing "inMyPants" illustrates YOUR mental state.
So, what you advocate is that people with severe mental illnesses should act upon their self-hatred by mutilating themselves. I bet you advocate assisted suicide also. I must say, your apparent attitude toward the mentally ill, doesn't sound very enlightened to me. Progressive is the wrong name for your kind. What you liberal types really advocate is regressing back to the stone age.
Thomas, I think that is a gross exaggeration of the truth - we have 98 to 99% percent paying for the 1 to 2%. The 1 to 2% merely get more media coverage because the left want them to help destroy our culture and values.
Yes, I am a transgender female, and I do consider myself a human being. Hopefully I'm not perceived as an idiot by those that are acquainted with me. But I also consider myself a conservative (this is where we get to really test the so-called tolerance of the left). My stance on a few social issues may sometimes stray a bit from the standard, but I do know that in principle being conservative means being independent. Self reliance is one of conservatism's strongest tenets.
That being said, I do believe it would be hypocritical and purely irresponsible of me to expect others, who may not agree with my choices due to religion or otherwise, to pay for a surgery that is extremely expensive.
Wow! Someone who understands. I feel for you but have a difficult time understanding where the whole idea comes from. If you wish to change into something not fish nor fowl (lousy analogy), feel free. But, as you said, I shouldn't have to pay for it. Thanks for your input.
Shut up. Even the medical community is begining to change on this subject. Johns-Hopkins no longer does it and one of their head shrinks just publish a treatise on how abusive it is to the patient.
Johns Hopkins *does* in fact perform these procedures.
They didn't used to, because McHugh (harborer of pedophiles) decided to shut it down decades ago.
Once he was out, it was started again.
So they cut off their breasts, give them hormones so the puff up looking ridiculous, and do an attachadicktame and your an instant man? The ONE person I know looks ridiculous, is almost 60 years old. What do they do with their internal organs? It's hack surgery to me.
MrTeaPartyInHisJockies (there's a user name that suggests the inside of his pants is nothing more than a make believe ballroom) uses the old 'transgenders' are people and the typical sad sob story to justify their sex change surgery. What Mr. Poopypants doesn't let on is that the number of suicides committed by people who have the procedure is much greater than the norm. They need mental counseling not surgery. There are a lot of nutty people in this world that want to do some extra nutty things. Libs are enablers.
The surgery is desired to make oneself feel like they want to feel. My wife doesn't feel complete without a pair of double d's. Her surgery should be covered as well. It's only "fair".
You'll have to share your medical science education and experience that confirms that it is possible can make a man out of a woman and vice versa.
PS ... I'm thinking that in about 4 years I would LOVE to have some work done on my 55 year old face ... is Obama going to to pay for that??
Let them pay themselves. Pychiatric attention might help, yes to your question of knowing any. Have you ever know anyone who needed somekind of prothetic device? The health care will not pay for that? So bull on reasignment surgery. Besides God has the last word after all is said and done whether any one likes it or believes it.
I have. Just like the gays, they are mentally UNSTABLE
There are many legitimate and useful studies on the fact that this surgery makes the lives of the "transgendered" more miserable than before ... 80%.
Yeah, it's a person, either born a male or female, not what they think they are. Mother Nature knows better which proves how big my mind and how open it is. If you want to think that you are enlightened because of your lunacy, go right ahead. You, too, need psychiatric help.
Why they have to be idiots they are people just like everyone of you idiots stop judging people dummys
Shhhh . . . . someone may be watching and then make sure it is covered under mental health disorders.
I need tax bracket reassignment because KingfishCare is killing me.
All I can say is I am glad I don't have to use OBUMMERCARE and help pay for this crap!!!!
Oh, we will be ''paying'' with our Taxes! The Illegals crossing the Border are getting Free Healthcare and we will have to pay for it. ..
we are already are paying for that on many levels
Everyone is getting except those who earn their own way.....it is socialism at it finest.
