UC Berkeley Adds 'Laser Hair Removal' to Transgender Healthcare Plan
When it's not busy burning itself down and demanding Trump's impeachment, Berkeley sets its priorities high. High like a PCP high. At the top of the priority list is healthcare accouterments for trannies. Right next to free tuition for illegals. Ah shucks. That Berekely really knows how to make people feel welcome. Come August, medical "necessities" for gender confused dumplings will include fertility preservation and laser hair removal. Berkeley was once, allegedly, a university of higher learning. In case you forgot.
Beginning August 1, University Health Services will add to its transgender student services by providing two new benefits covered by SHIP: fertility preservation and laser hair removal.
Fertility damage is often a result of the hormones used to treat gender dysphoria. Trans individuals who stop taking gender-affirming hormones in order to get pregnant or produce sperm often experience psychological damage. Fertility preservation offers safer alternatives.
According to [SHIP manager Bahar] Navab, the majority of traditional insurance plans currently do not cover many trans services, including male-to-female top surgery and hair removal, as they regard these to be cosmetic services rather than treatment of dysphoria.
Yes, that's the ticket. Transgender students shall be oppressed by bigoted body hairs no longer. Remove them at once. Along with eggs and sperm to be saved for laters.
Notice something interesting about these procedures? They're both meant to force the human body into doing something it naturally shouldn't be doing. Trans folk are having fertility problems from the hormones they're loading their bodies with. Solution? REMOVE THE EGGS. REMOVE THE SPERMS. MOAR CHEMICALS!
But the left loves science. How dare you.
Men have unmanageable hairy bodies. Women's are soft, filled with estrogen, and the unique ability to nurture babies. Trying to undo these (natural) physical attributes overly burdens someone's body with unnecessary, elective distress. If Timmy the tiny tranny wants to pump itself silly with estrogen, so be it. His body, his choice. But let's not pretend these procedures are anything other than elective and cosmetic. Fueled by mental delusion. Insurance companies shouldn't have to fork over the dough to help LGBTers indulge their rainbow-filled fantasies. Some hairy man chests may seem like medical emergencies, but they threaten no lives. Eyes of unsuspecting onlookers, maybe. Lives, no. Say yes to t-shirts, wooly mammoth men.
Though if this is going to happen anywhere, of course it's happening at Berkeley. Par for the course.
