    Well I definitely think the government should look after the physical and psychological needs of it's prisoners. But SRS is rather expensive. If Chelsea did indeed want that, why should the government provide it for her?

    They're functionally insane but insane none the less. They're on par with people who have severe irrational phobias.
    Not all mental illness is insanity. Psychosis is insanity. As you said they're on par with people who have severe irrational phobias. People with extreme phobias are neurotic, not psychotic.

    You're absolutely correct.... I would have been more attentive at the time I wrote my post but I was multitasking..

    That was a pretty informative post. That said, what do you mean exactly when you say they are on par with people who have severe irrational phobias?

    This is the worst case of transgender treason since Beatrice Arnold.

    Actually I was thinking about this matter a little bit today. Because democracy cannot function properly unless people have accurate information, in the larger scheme of things, I think that Chelsea has done the people of the United States a service. I think she made some errors in how she went about doing that. As a result her punishment should be the time she has spent in incarceration, part of which was harsh solitary confinement. She should be let go now, having been punished for the errors, and allowed to live her life as she sees fit.

    I'm sure that s/he will be glad to hear that gender-reassignment surgery is now covered by Medicare.

    They say a 74 year old sued to get the coverage. Dang!!!!!

    I think even though we are both liberals, we have vastly different definitions of "medical treatment" and "basic human rights". I'm all for sexual reassignment surgery being performed on inmates, as long as they themselves pay for it. That's a world away from something like life saving heart surgery or AIDS/Cancer treatments.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
