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.
