    Seriously though lopping off ones junk cannot be seriously considered a "Treatment"......
    So you have no medical knowledge and no experience with this condition but you're making an absolute claim about a type of treatment.

    Perhaps there is a bartering market?

    The safe maneuvering speed of an aircraft increases as the weight of that aircraft increases. It seems kindof backwards. When I first heard it, I thought "What the hell? That doesn't make any sense. Surely you'd want a heavier plane to fly slower, structurally speaking."

    But then someone with an in-depth knowledge of aerodynamics explained it to me. "Oh, well that makes sense! Good thing someone with expertise in the field makes these design calculations instead of me!"

    Re: Transexual Loses Bid For State-Paid Breast Enlargements

    Im kinda of two minds about this.

    On the one hand, part of me wants to say the state shouldnt have to pay for cosmetic procedures. They need to help pay for procedures that are necessary to save a person's life and a cosmetic procedure doesnt fall under that unless you're talking about something like a burn victim.

    On the other hand, I've been around the GLBT community for many years and known many people who were transsexual. I've seen how badly it can mess with someone's head to feel like they're stuck in the opposite gender's body and to not really be someone, physically, that you feel you are. I've known people who've killed themselves over stuff like that.

    Not really sure where to settle on it

    I'm kind of in the same boat here. While in this case I don't think she should have received the surgery because it is cosmetic. She has grown her own boobs with the hormone replacement therapy, and the surgery would be only for cosmetic purposes. While I believe other trans related services, like therapy, hormones, SRS should be covered because they are not cosmetic.

    So wait let me get this straight, you think it is not only the roll of the state to steal from the individual in order to pay for medically necessary treatment for sick patients (which I don't agree with but at least I can see the point even though it violates the right to self ownership and the non-aggression principle) but you, also, believe it is the role of the state to help people to feel better about themselves through therapy and hormone treatments?

    Look if someone feels like a man trapped in a woman's body or vice/versa that's none of my ****ing business but likewise it's none of their ****ing business if I don't feel like voluntarily paying for it, they can go out, get a job, and pay for the insurance which will cover such procedures or barring that paying for the procedures themselves. They have absolutely no business violating my right to self ownership whatsoever.

    Taxes aren't stealing. These procedures would be covered under a government run healthcare system funded by tax payers.
