San Francisco to provide transgender surgeries for uninsured
fox ^ | 11-9-12 | ap

Posted on 11/09/2012 3:28:11 PM PST by TurboZamboni

San Francisco is preparing to become the first U.S. city to provide and cover the cost of sex reassignment surgeries for uninsured transgender residents.

The city's Health Commission voted Tuesday to create a comprehensive program for treating transgender people experiencing mental distress because of the mismatch between their bodies and their gender identities. The vote was announced Thursday.

The idea came out of conversations between public health officials and transgender rights advocates who wanted mastectomies, genital reconstructions and other surgeries covered under San Francisco's universal health care program.

Perfect. Let them burn their money on this kind of insane BS and not on building obama socialism.

Sure, why not? Apparently this is how the residents want their money spent.

Your post is spot on.
Throughout my lifetime, California was always a leader in cultural trends.
Hot rods, music, films, space program, education, etc.
That’s still the case, but the trends are all negative now.
Illegals, high taxes, breakdown of the Judeo-Christian culture, welfare, etc.
But sadly they are still an excellent predictor of what the rest of the US will see eventually.

How do they justify this and not pay for Sally’s breast enhancement because of her body dysmorphism, Sammy’ liposuction because he needs to look younger at his sales job or Cymanca ‘s whamarammer enhancement because he needs another job as a gigolo because of the mental trauma of Obamacare.

As a budgetary curiosity, does anyone know the relative costs of F—>M versus M—>F? Is an addadicktome cheaper or more expensive than a peckerectomy?

http://www.signonsandiego.com/news/2009/dec/24/beyond-reckless-sacramento-washington-pile-debt/

The job growth for state workers contrasts with the loss of 759,000

not to mention gubermint employees and their pensions:

Reform advocates are spotlighting those with extravagant pensions
— $100,000 or more — as a way to get the public’s attention and
emphasize that the current system is unsustainable.

Indeed. A total meltdown.

Might be awhile though. The powers that be have figured out how to kick the can down the road very well. Just look at Europe. They've solved nothing since the debt crisis began, but they've managed to buy more time at will. Eventually the entire house of cards will fall, but it could be a long time.

” conversations between public health officials and transgender rights advocates “

Right. Conversations. More like stomp-foot-and-demand-it-since-you’re-already-insane-anyway.

What does someone’s mental illness and desire to mutilate oneself have to do with public health? Is this the same as rats in a restaurant or an outbreak of TB?

You’ve hit on the most important question.

When does it auger in, and will it be inflation or deflation on the way.

How long can the Fedgov spend $1.40 for $1 in income by creating Baraqqi/Bernanke/Geithner electronic bucks?

“Californians... Your hard-earned tax dollars at work!”

It’s not just them. Here in the People’s Republic of Massachusetts, all one of these “confused” freaks needs to do is a little time in the Massachusetts Correctional System.

We now have to pay for freak surgery. A federal judge mandated it. So a freak that can’t afford to pay for it’s own circus surgery only needs to get committed for some minor felony and the people (well, those of us who contribute to the system ) get to pay.

The world has gone mad.

Correction: for people who are so unhappy with themselves that they convince themselves that drastically mutilating their bodies will change who they are. Of course, the mutilation does nothing to change the fundamental person.

That said, I'm so glad that California's budget problems have been solved, and that the state now has unlimited funds to throw away like this.

Q: What kind of "doctors" perform these self mutilations by proxy?

A: The kind that will thrive and multiply under Obamacare.

This article provides a hint about the impending rationing and prioritizing of health care.

It'll be like Carrousel without the fun of flying.

It is no accident that the government dietary guidelines promote obesity and disease. They are designed to set off the "life clocks".

“Is an addadicktome cheaper or more expensive than a peckerectomy?”

This would be three party transaction. We have the “dingaling donor”, who sees himself as a woman trapped in the body of a man. The second party or the “pecker acceptor”, always wanted pee standing up just like her brothers. The third party, who accepts a small fee from both patients to perform a genitalia swap, is the “baloney broker”. This person is a different kind of misfit whose parents pushed him into med school when all the time he really wanted to be a real estate agent.

They justify all of this on the alter of political correctness. Expect Obamacare to do the same.
HIV medications, covered.
Transgender surgery and medications, covered.
Abortion on demand and other “women’s healthcare services”, covered.
But if your disease condition isn’t politically useful to a politician, you’re on your own.

Why can’t they take the cranks they cut off of the males and attach them to the females.

I vote they give it a try, if it doesn’t work what have they lost? I have a sheet rock knife and a needle and thread and volunteer to do the deed.

Crazy ,insane people wanting mutilation.

Next O’Mally will want this in Maryland, Mikulski will be first in line to vote for it, and maybe even try it out.

I don’t know the comparative costs. But to put a capitalist twist on this, in S.F. there’ll probably be much greater demand for peckerectomies. That should create a surplus of transplantable peckers. With proper care they can be shipped at great profit to areas where addadicktomies are more prevalent. That might offset some of the S.F. program’s costs.

But what about the mental distress of taxpayers like me, who ultimately have to pay the bill?

I see your point. The original owner would argue that the equipment provided worked as advertised. But the perpetrator would probably win the case based on the fact that argue that he (or is it she?) was not provided with a user’s manual.

They don’t remove the penis. It’s turned outside-in.

I actually saw this surgery performed on YouTube and even though I do not have a penis it made me hurt down below.

It’s mutilation. I do not care waht those nut-jobs say.

I always find it amusing when a guy says he got kicked or hit in the nuts. I know it hurts but it just sounds funny when a guy refers to his testicles as ‘nuts’.

Boy am I glad I don’t have testicles!
