no one should be getting sex change operations at taxpayer expense. it's completely ridiculous. that is not a medical condition. it's just ridiculousness.

They'd also not understand liposuction and artificial insemination.  Why don't we let people who have a handle on the current situation in the medical world make some decisions instead of guessing what dead folks would have wanted?

Why WOULDN'T sex-change operations be covered by the NHS? Someone explain this to me. You think that there's people out there that say to themselves, "Eh. I'm so tired of having a penis. I think I'll get it chopped off and get a not-really-functioning vagina installed in its place. That sounds like a good time."

Nope, that's still too much empathy for the people getting the surgery.  They just think "perverts!!" and move on.  2 things make people like subby act like they do.

1. Lack of empathy.
2.  Fear of the unknown.

This is a healthy case of #1.

What I find really surprising is TownHall actually calls the the transgendered man "She." I would have expected them to be far more discourteous than that. I am further surprised that her issue isn't so much the NHS covering sex changes, but more this specific instance.

You, sir are an idiot.

The Bible does in fact cover "treat other people as you wish to be treated", "judge not" and four specific books that show conservatives to be on the wrong side of pretty much every argument.

Do these feckle studded retards know what the NHS was put into place? Because returning British soldiers voted for Labour, who promised to put it into place. They wanted something out of the war. The NHS was part of that deal.

So, hate the NHS, hate on veterans. Typical Tea Retard.

That's the thing, it does kill people if left untreated.  People with the disorder are in such immense discomfort they are known to do ANYTHING to make it stop.  Often these attempts prove fatal.  Sometimes they just commit suicide.  It's a horrible, cruel disorder to live with.

In defense of subby, they paired the quote from the article with "interracial marriage". This would indicate to me that they are making fun of the notion.

The things that people from the 1940s never thought of is too absurd to even try to enumerate, yet even they thought we'd have flying cars by now.  WTF.

The founder of the NHS was Aneurin Bevan, minister of Health in the 1945 Labour Government. Bevan was a life long left-wing socialist and campaigner for social justice, was liberal on matters sexual in his private life, was a friend of notorious gay member of parliament Tom Driberg, and resigned from the government when it proposed charging for NHS eyeglasses, which he had made free (that is, paid for from general taxation, a vastly more efficient, cheaper and fairer method of funding healthcare than any other, especially individuals paying for their own needs if they can). I doubt he ever expressed a view on transgender issues, but it seems unlikely that he would have been unhappy.

Lando Lincoln: Why WOULDN'T sex-change operations be covered by the NHS?


I personally don't think any elective cosmetic surgeries should be covered unless there is some sort of issue caused by a real medical condition.  For example, if a woman has a mastectomy due to cancer, sure cover her plastic surgery.  I was born with parts I'm not fond of is not legitimate to me.  I support equal rights, gender equality, marriage equality, etc.  I just don't support paying for elective cosmetic surgery.  And it has nothing to do with being "icky" because it's not icky at all.

Elective cosmetic surgery isn't covered.  This isn't at all the same thing.

I have a penis.  I'm quite happy with it.  But if I considered myself to be a woman, I could understand how having a penis could cause severe mental trauma.

Cost of 1 year in prison in England: £41,000
Cost of sex-reassignment surgery under the NHS: £44,000

So, you can get sex-reassignment surgery, at the cost of 1 year off your sentence.
