Transgenders Sue to Force Medicaid to Pay for Gender Surgery
LGBT has been harping on for years about how their LGBTness wouldn't affect you. Their gender confusion is none of your business. Outside of you footing the bill for their elective surgeries (see Pentagon Decides to Pay for Transgender Soldier's Reassignment Surgery and NY Medicaid to Cover 'Puberty Blockers,' Transgender Surgery for Kids). Their body, your problem.
Two Wisconsin residents who want gender reassignment surgeries paid by Medicaid filed a federal lawsuit against the state Monday, contending their denials of service are discriminatory and violate the federal health care law.
The lawsuit from Cody Flack, a 30-year-old transgender man, and Sara Ann Makenzie, a 41-year-old transgender woman, challenges a 1997 state regulation that deems “transsexual surgery” as medically unnecessary and therefore not eligible for Medicaid coverage.
Flack and Makenzie say they suffer from “gender dysphoria” — a medically recognized condition defined by discomfort or distress caused by a discrepancy between the gender that a person identifies as and the gender at birth. Consequences can include severe depression.
Hernia surgery, spinal fusions, and mastectomies are a few examples of surgeries which are medically necessary. You'll notice fake bewbs and phony prostates don't make the list. The trannies will be disappointed enough to binge watch 10 seasons of RuPaul's drag race and eat a tub of Ben & Jerry's, but they'll survive. Hence "not medically necessary."
The thought of ponying up taxpayer dough for gender surgery may be laughable, but it's not unheard of. It's becoming somewhat of a trend: More Transgenders Getting Reassignment Surgery, Funded by Medicaid and Medicare. We'll remember 2018 by the bad memes and tax-funded plastic surgeries. #Progress
The worst part of all this: complaining about it = bigotry. Refusing to pay for expensive ego boosts is basically a hate crime, don't you know. Instead look upon the neighborhood tranny and behold your tax dollars at work.
Americans already fork over their money so unemployed ninnies can abuse the system meant to "help" those who need it. But the definition of "helping" and "those who need it" keeps changing. That's the problem when you have no say over where your money ends up. Down the toilet with bra stuffing and abused tampons it goes.
