Of course hypocrites will argue its not the same thing, but when they say we should allow a man to get his penis chopped off and a fake vagina added along with some fake breasts and some hormones that we should facilitate mental disorders instead of curing them. I do not want my tax dollars being used to facilitate mental disorders and pay for cosmetic surgeries.

He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    There are no genetic or hormonal causes of wanting to be a duck. False equivalency. Someone can literally have female genetic traits while possessing a penis.

    The government should only help people obtain the essentials in life - and how you feel with your woohoo or waahaa isn't one of those things.

    So quacks/shrinks and plastic surgeons are now trained geneticist ?


    False equivalency.
    No its not. Both are mental illnesses and you hypocritically arguing that we should facilitate one mental illness by paying for cosmetic surgery and hormones/drugs of one person who is a whack job but not pay to facilitate the mental illness of another whackjob.

    Someone can literally have female genetic traits while possessing a penis.
    Last I checked all males a xy chromosome,unless there is some there some abnormaility like de la Chapelle(xx) or Klinefelter(xxy) syndrome or xyy syndrom and still a lot of those cases males still act like normal males(except for the slow learning ability with xyy syndrome).

    In my mind, I'm a beautiful 21 year old knock-out, therefore, the government should pay for plastic correction of my 52 year old reality.
