    Apparently, Sandra Fluke not only wants Obamacare to pay for the "pill" but also to have sex changes covered by insurance....really?


    Sandra Fluke supports mandatory coverage of sex change surgery

    irth control is not all that Ms. Fluke believes private health insurance must cover. She also, apparently, believes that it is discrimination deserving of legal action if “gender reassignment” surgeries are not covered by employer provided health insurance. She makes these views clear in an article she co-edited with Karen Hu in the Georgetown Journal of Gender and the Law.
    The title of the article . . . is “Employment Discrimination Against LGBTQ Persons” and was published in the Journal’s 2011 Annual Review.
    Transgender persons wishing to undergo the gender reassignment process frequently face heterosexist employer health insurance policies that label the surgery as cosmetic or medically unnecessary and therefore uncovered.

    So Sandra (pre), Steve (post) wants a sex change too? :confused:
    I thought she was just a misguided college student....who knew she was an over the top nutcase activist that was hired by the DNC to speak. :eusa_eh:

    well, gender dysphoria is a real illness. should they not get treatment for that illness?

    do we not treat AIDS and STD's because some disapprove of how one might get those illnesses?

    i hadn't heard that Ms Fluke was transgendered. Nor does she seem the least bit misguided.

    Oh...my...God...

    You're serious.

    You're serious about "dysphoria" being a "real" illness, which is pathetic enough but that you expect taxpayers to foot the bill? Unbelievable! What next, taxpayer boob jobs because women with little tits have an "illness"?

    Wow, just wow.

    People who have gender dysphoria deserve treatment. Not accommodation for their illness. We don't give people with STDs or AIDS uninfected sex partners.

    I'm glad Fluke was there, and glad she made her demands. She no doubt added a great deal to the general opinion of democrats.

    Seriously, Jillian? :rolleyes:
    Is there anything that liberals AREN'T willing to pay for?
    Bringing in AIDS or STD's is not a very good arguement on this subject. just sayin....

    I know Sandra isn't a misguided college student, but what she IS, is a full blown activist for socializing medicine....you seem to be, also.

    Do we also have to pay for Sandra's sex toys and bondage outfits...
    I mean if we wanna keep her healthy we also need to keep her happy as well.
    Is that covered under Obamacare?

    i can't help it if you're ignorant. i'm pretty sure that you've never known anyone transgendered and i'm pretty sure you don't know anything about them.

    so, just wow...

    at your ignorance. *shrug*
