These people have mental illness..... There are plenty of people out there with similar mental disorders, and in this case Body integrity identity disorder, yet it is viewed as a mental illness when someone wants to cut their arms off or their legs or whatever body part it may be, yet if a man thinks he's a woman and wants to cut their dong off all of a sudden these wacko psychologists find it perfectly rational and not insane.
So basically you have a mental problem if you don't want arms and want them amputated for no reason - yet you're sane if you're a man who believes they're a woman.
I'm sure If I insisted I was a space alien they would throw me in the loony bin and label me bat**** crazy.
Hell, in the future I'm sure anyone who holds conservative political views will be labeled crazy and thrown in a mental hospital er reeducation camp.
As a libertarian, I could care less what someone does to their own body, but I do take issue if those procedures are done at the taxpayers expense and are labeled sane when they're obviously nuts.
LIfe isnt fair and there are plenty of people suffering from diseases...mental and physical...that cannot be cured. They have to learn to deal with it, adapt, change their perspectives, find things that alleviate their pain, etc.
What do they do for other patients with mental issues? Drug them....like people... in jail and out...that are manic depressive. Tranq him and let him veg in a cell. That's what he's supposed to be doing anyway. Make him as comfortable as possible but none of this surgery...or transplants, etc on my tax dollars.
