Duke Raises Student Fees to Pay for Sex Change Surgery
College Fix ^ | 01 May 2013

Posted on 05/02/2013 7:28:47 AM PDT by Lorianne

College costs are on the rise–having increased at a rate that outpaces inflation for more than two decades, contributing to record levels of student debt. Nevertheless, Duke University saw fit to raise the cost of its program even more. This week Campus Reform reports that Duke has raised student fees in order to pay for sex change operations for any student who wants one.

Administrators say they will cover the cost of the reassignment surgery up to $50,000 that will be covered with a cause a 0.3 percent increase to overall student fees.LGBT advocates on campus immediately celebrated the university’s decision.

“The addition of sexual reassignment surgery with a $50,000 cap makes Duke’s student health care plan one of the most, if not the most, transgender-inclusive plans in the country,” Sunny Frothingham, the outreach chair for Blue Devils United told the Duke Chronicle last week…

Great - go to college and you may not acquire an education, but you can certainly get a sn*tch.

So does that mean they’ve given up on transforming young morons into thinking adults?

Why don't everybody pay for everyone else's plastic surgeries, piercings, tattoos and tattoo removals while we're at it?
If you want to change gender, it should be on your own dime.
Being born male, or female, is not a disease and should not be treated as such.
The only kind of sex change on public money I would support (especially for inmates) is to Neuter.

Would you expect anything less than that coming from a school that blindly backed a criminal, lying, hooker, stripper murderer who falsely accused innocent, young, male students of a crime that didn’t happen?

I hope their tuition goes through the roof. How much did it increase to cover the insurance increase from haviing to pay damages of millions of dollars to the innocent men?

Maybe The Group of 88 will offer to cut their salaries to cover the increase.

OK, I nominate this as the biggest WTF story of the week.

By the way, being that it’s Duke, shouldn’t they have a legal fund for lacrosse players who are railroaded by liberals?

So-called higher education has become a joke. I remember when Duke and Yale and other universities were admired around the world. Now they are more concerned with Sex Week and reassignment surgery than education. Why do I have to be living during this time? I should have been born in the 1820s!

Man, used to be that if you wanted some p*ssy in college, you’d just wander on down to a sorority mixer on a Friday night.

And it didn’t cost no fifty thousand bucks, either.

Colleges get away with so much price gouging it’s insane, and being that most of them are run by liberals they get away with it. For example during a gas shortage, you’ll see every politician in existence out there destroying small gas stations that gouge by even a cent. But colleges that gouge by tens of thousands of dollars? Oh, they are left alone. For example in New York city, NYU is THE largest real estate owner in the entire city. A freakin’ college. And if that isn’t bad enough, they constantly run small businesses into the ground by raising their rents through the stratosphere which is why now high end fashion stores litter places like Greenwich village, Little Italy, SoHo. And what do the politicos do? Absolutely nothing.

Good Grief. Of course, the IDIOT DICK BRODHEAD, is still President of Duke — the same one who fanned the flames of hate against the LaCrosse team facing fraudulent charges of rape. Duke is also cultivating Islamists and setting up a Islamic Center. They’ve been hosting Duke grads at the residences of ambassadors Middle Eastern Muslim countries. They have a fund-raising campaign called “Duke/forward” — which sounds like an attempt to play off the progressive/Communist/socialists claptrap. It’s sickening to the core.

A bit of a change from Duke’s (mostly) Methodist roots, eh?

Duke’s motto (since 1859) is Eruditio et Religio (Knowledge and Religion). Can’t help wondering what religion Duke thinks it has today (it sure ain’t Christianity....)?

Maybe we should round up a bunch of confused youths and cloward and piven Duke University because 100% of their new students want a “add a dictomy”.

I wonder how the Libs would feel about having their own sick tactics used against them.?

Just wonder does that include Duke University Health Systems because in 2012 the State of Michigan approved the sale of Marquette General Health Hospital to be part of Duke University health Systems. Marquette is a teaching hospital and a Level 1 trauma Center. (I am not kidding about Duke University purchasing a hospital in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan).

This is weird, but may explain some weird charges showing up on my Marquette General Hospital bill (A Duke University Health Systems Facility) that i do not understand. The billing comes from Illinois - outsourced their medical billing to another state.

Deuoteromony 23:1 No one whose testicles are crushed or whose male organ is cut off shall enter the assembly of the Lord. (crushing the testicals was an old method of castration)

Leviticus 18:22 You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination. (You can sew in a hole, but he is still a male)

Hebrews 13:4 Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled, for God will judge the sexually immoral...

1 corinthians 6:0-10 Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral,... nor men who practice homosexuality...will inherit the kingdom of God.

Now there are other scriptures that make exceptions for birth defects and castration not under your control. And I would suspect Christ can even forgive a repentant tranny, but everyone that I have met that has gone this route is too far gone for that.

I just wanted clarification because what you said is factually incorrect. The Bible does not say what you wrote. Misquoting the Bible is no small thing.

If you castrate yourself by hiring a doctor so you can wear panties and go to bed with other men or marry them you will fufill all the scriptures I quoted.

There actually is a reason that I took the time to quote the scriptures that I did, and did your study for you, in hopes that if perhaps you were too unable to look it up for yourself, if I laid it all out for you you might pick it up.

But, serving you on a silver platter did no good I see.

You want to argue scripture, how about you show me the scripture that allows transexualism surgery and lifestyle?

That just might put some weight in your words.

“is factually incorrect”
“Misquoting the Bible”

“Where?”

Should I reject the text, on your say so just, because?

Who are you to contradict scripture, and expect me to buy it with no argument?

Jesus is my Master, not Pan_Yan.

By the way, when playing poker, you need to match the bet an have better cards before trying to grab the stack. Its a red neck thingie.

Just sitting here wondering...

If a student can keep a high GPA after having this kind of operation and, depending on whether the operation is from male to female or female to male, would that make them eligible to be the class hadadictorian or addadictorian?

Discuss.

You posted: Bible says someone that does sex change surgery is going straight to Hell.

I asked you where. None of the scriptures you posted in response specifically say what you claimed in post 18. I am very hesitant to put a limit on the grace of God by saying that a sad and twisted soul who goes through this mutilation is beyond God's redemption. From my limited understanding of scripture the only unforgivable sin is dying without Jesus. Maybe your understanding is different.

I do apologize since my post appears to have angered you. That was not my intention.

You perhaps missed this caveat that I added at the end of the scripture list: “Now there are other scriptures that make exceptions for birth defects and castration not under your control. And I would suspect Christ can even forgive a repentant tranny, but everyone that I have met that has gone this route is too far gone for that.”

And I did not misquote, I cut and pasted it to prevent misquoting. I try to be careful, as a slight mis-wording can change the meaning from person to person significantly.

Apology accepted. Thank you, I was indeed offended. Was is the active principle by the way. I realize the statement "straight to hell" was extreme, but it was chosen for shock factor due to the easy acceptance of transgenderism in today's society. I still stand by it, but with the framework of straight to hell from the position of having died without repentance. From the Judge to the cell, that kind of straight to hell.

Transgenderism is in my opinion is just another sexual perversion that man lifts him self above his animal nature by controlling. It is no worse or better than Homosexuality or pedophilia or bestiality. And it will have exactly the same spiritual result.

What makes a man different from an animal is his ability to lift himself up spiritually. Not all do. From my understanding, Man was made in Gods image, but it takes self control to grow up into something other than the physical shell that we reside in.

I suspect a monkey looks more like, and is more physically like a man than a man looks like and is physically like the Multidimensional being God. What makes man so much above a monkey other than his morality, and willingness to sacrifice what is his direct desires for a cause that is moral.

How different is a Homosexual fulfilling sexual or other desires no matter the cost to society or others, and an Ape who is just doing what he wants, with no understanding beyond his animal nature? Both are acting out the same thing for the same reasons.

I do not worship a "mother nature". But I do observe that is the way God made things, and I know from my heart and the Bible that it is wise to do as God intended, rather than try to rewrite the rules. There is a cost to sticking your finger in Gods eye.

So, if they go through a sex change from a male to a female and then find that they were just emotional, made the incorrect original decision, and change their mind, will duke pay for the second sex change back to the original sex???
