The federal government is spending $152,000 to study voice therapy for transgenders, saying it is incumbent to being accepted as ones preferred gender.
This study will illuminate the capabilities of the human larynx and inform the relationship between voice production and perception, states a National Institutes of Health (NIH) grant, awarded to George Washington University. The long term goal of this research is to inform and provide new directions for Transgender (TG) voice care, thereby improving the lives of TG people who feel their voice is a great obstacle to living as their preferred gender.

No money for training troops or air controllers...
Plenty of money for this cr@p.
She had the body of Eva Longoria and the voice of Abe Vigoda.
First we have to pay for their addadicktome, or their dickectomy, now we have to pay to teach them to sing baritone or soprano!
If you were “born that way” you wouldn’t need talking tips.
I wonder if the taxpayers in Russia or China fund this kind of stuff...so, whose citizens are really “free”?
And in California, you now have to pay for their “fertility treatments” even if that means renting a womb and buying the sperm.
This is why the founders thought it’d be goog to have leaders with a Christian world view.
This is definate BS now I’m pissed! All Americans should be also we cannot have daily flights in out of an airport but some DA queer can learn to speak like well a queer!
This Country better get it’s values right and stop this crap!
We have delusioned our youth, cut our military, so on and so on! But I gaurantee that person that does nothing in their office all day drawing 65k a year and tons more like them are still getting a check!
And people wonder why conservatives have no use for liberals!
There is only one way to stop this. Government has brought small buisness to it’s knees, time to bring Government to it’s knees! Stop paying taxes is all that can be done!
If the IRS can’t get paid they won’t be at your door!
plenty of money to send our most lethal weapons to his MuslimBrother and other Islamicterrorista pals all around the world.....
plenty of money for transgender surgeries
plenty of money for super-lavish, extremely frequent vacations at the most expensive resorts
but not one dime for American cirizens’ air travel safety.
it is all a matter of priorities. Got it?
I am so very happy to wait 4 hours in airport security lines so we can provide for these poor people in need. This is a terribly underserved community. Can you imagine the shame of having a manly voice after your chopadicoffame operation?
Since we’re talking about transgender s .....
I understand they’re telling us that we need a 3rd restroom (unisex I believe they call it) to accommodate the transgender folks. My thoughts are that they would need a 4th one to be truly politically correct .... One for MEN. one for WOMEN. then one for MALE TO FEMALE and one for FEMALE TO MALE (Chaz Bono-types). I am not sure if the male to females will want to share a restroom with the female to males. It’s just too much to ask of these poor folks.
My point is that if these overly PC folks really want to be PC, they’re going to need a 4th restroom. In other words, this BS never ends.
Plenty of money for this crap...indeed!
Wouldn’t it be great if the NIH finished dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s on few remaining pesky medical problems citizens face, such as cancer, Alzheimer’s, and traumatic injury first?
The really annoying thing here is that it isn’t even TAXPAYER money being spent at this point. It’s the children of the children of taxpayers’ money. The entire US government should be committed and put in rehab, because they are clearly addicted to excessive spending, which I believe has been defined as a mental illness - BPD - by them!
Sorry, freaks, but if your chromosomes are XY, I don't care if you are taking estrogen or have silicone implants. I don't care is you've had a surgeon modify your groin. Why would voice lessons change that? This is yet another stupid waste of my tax dollars and of the money that our children will eventually earn - already spent on the typical fraud, waste, and abuse.
