State Sponsored Sex Changes?

WARNING: I’m going to get very politically incorrect, here. In fact, the subject, and my comments, may be downright offensive to some.

When I first saw this article, I did a double take. It turns out that a convicted murderer is trying to get the state of Massachusetts to pay for a sex change operation. Will wonders never cease? Perversion and feelings of entitlement seem to keep going on. Get this:

A psychiatrist testified Tuesday that he believes Robert Kosilek - who now goes by Michelle - will commit suicide if state corrections officials refuse to allow the surgery and Kosilek is unable to complete the transformation into a woman.

Let me get this straight. Here’s a guy who murdered his wife in cold blood in 1990 who’s having a sexual identity crisis, and I’m supposed to care? Now he’s threatening to kill himself if we don’t cut off his dick. Why don’t we let him do himself in? It’ll save all the tax money we’re spending in frivolous litigations and psychiatric help, let alone room and board, for this murderous pervert.

Apparently this isn’t the first time he’s approached the state about this. He got his foot in the door with this little number:
In 2002, U.S. District Judge Mark Wolf ruled Kosilek was entitled to treatment for gender identity disorder, but he stopped short of ordering the state to pay for a sex-change operation.
Since then, Kosilek has received psychotherapy, female hormone treatments and laser hair removal.
Kosilek sued the Department of Correction for the second time last year, saying psychiatrists _ including two of the department's experts _ had determined a sex-change operation was medically necessary.
"We ask that gender identity disorder be treated like any other medical condition," said Kosilek's attorney, Frances Cohen.

What the hell!? I’m cool with psychotherapy and psychiatric meds for convicts, but since when did the standard for treating gender disorders become state sponsored elective surgery? I can’t believe they agreed to pay for the hormone treatments and hair removal back in 2002. This is absolutely stinking nuts.

When is our society going to quit subsidizing perversions in our criminals? Based on the fact that Massachusetts paid for hormones and laser hair removal for this dork, I’d say this latest suit shouldn’t be a surprise. You get the behavior’s you reward. If we continue to reward perverted and criminal behavior, in the name of political correctness, perversion and crime will increase.

Sorry no blogs of late. I’ve been having some more problems with my gall-bladder and it finally ended up in surgery a couple of weeks ago. You can read more about it over at my Campus Codger blog.

The world is getting weirder and weirder, though. Today I hear the President is thinking about putting National Guardsmen on our southern border to help support our border patrol for a while. At least until we get the immigration mess we’ve created sorted out a bit more. What’s weird to me is that I heard on the radio that the governor of New Mexico is up in arms about it. He doesn’t want them there. Why not? Is he offended that the border patrol might need help?

The whole immigration thing just has me shaking my head. I hear so many arguments about how “immigrants are important to America.” Yeah. We know. No one is arguing that. Why is that suddenly supposed to be a carte blanche to break the law? Illegal immigration is the problem.

For years, though, we turned a blind eye to the issues. As American’s we’ve created the problem by ignoring it, or failing to enforce it. I’m not advocating that we suddenly go on a witch hunt and round up and deport every last illegal immigrant that’s currently in our country. Many of them have families now, with children that are American citizens. What do you do with these kids if you deport their parents? Not a good scenario.

The funny part is that people are protesting all over the country about this. You know what? I don’t think they even know what it is they’re protesting. Everyone I’ve talked to or read about, that is interviewed can only talk about things like fair treatment for Mexican people. Legal Mexican immigrants, and American citizens of Mexican descent aren’t going to be effected by this. They aren’t breaking the law. The protests seem to be more about civil rights issue within our borders, and nothing to do with the issue at hand, effectively enforcing current immigration law. They’re two separate issues, people!

The issue of what we are going to do about currently illegal immigrants can’t even be addressed effectively until we do something to control our borders. You can’t perform surgery unless you stop the bleeding first.
