Old News: Transgenders and Bathrooms. New News: Taxpayer-Funded Gender Reassignment Surgery — Bacon’s Rebellion

Del. Danica Roem, D-Manassas, Virginia’s first transgender legislator. by James A. Bacon I’m surprised this hasn’t caused an uproar yet: In his newly revised budget, Governor Ralph Northam wants to guarantee that transgender enrollees in Virginia’s expanded Medicaid program have access to “gender-affirming” care.

“This is an important equity issue and a critical part of “This is an important equity issue and a critical part of making our commonwealth welcoming and inclusive of all,” Northam spokesperson Alena Yarmonksy told The Virginia Mercury.

Old News: Transgenders and Bathrooms. New News: Taxpayer-Funded Gender Reassignment Surgery — Bacon’s Rebellion

Here’s the money quote, if you’ll pardon the pun

First, we as a society should not be subjecting gender-dysphoric children to hormonal therapy or surgery that can permanently alter their appearance. Many supposedly transgendered people are just confused. Many change their minds and regret disfiguring themselves. Pushing transgender treatments on children is downright evil — and I don’t use that word lightly. Just as the commonwealth bans drinking, driving, and other activities for the under-18 crowd, so it should ban transgender treatment. Once people turn 18, well… it’s a free country.

Second, I have big problems with using taxpayer dollars to pay for transgender treatments. If women want to make themselves feel better about themselves by getting breast implants, that’s on them. If men think they will feel more manly by getting penis-enhancement surgery, that’s on them. Same thing with transgenders. If they want to replace their sex organs to align with their sexual identity, that’s on them. Don’t ask for taxpayers to pick up the tab for plastic surgery.

Live how you want to live. That’s between you and God. But please stop asking me to help pay for it.

  1. I totally agree it is not fair to hard-working people. For many years people paid their plastic surgeries because it is their business, but suddenly people have to pay for someone else’s surgeries just because someone thinks that transgenders better than us. It is a shame at schools that appeared posters and teachers teaching children that it is good. There are so many hurt people, who changed their gender and regret after all. So, why to hurt children?
