Brown University To Cover Student Sex Change Operations

What can I add to this?  It appears that the Fluke controversy has extrapolated to sheer insanity.  Tuition subsidized insanity.

“The Brown Student Health Insurance Plan will cover 14 different sexual reassignment surgery procedures for students starting August, reports the Brown Daily Herald student newspaper.” reports the College Fix.

“For female-to-male surgeries, the new coverage plan will include mastectomy, hysterectomy, salpingo-oophorectomy, vaginectomy, metoidioplasty, scrotoplasty, urethroplasty, placement of testicular prostheses (and) phalioplasty,” the Daily Herald reports. “For male-to-female surgeries, coverage will include orchiectomy, penectomy, vaginoplasty, clitoroplasty (and) labiaplasty.”

I think I just threw up in my mouth.  Reading, Writing and ‘rithmatic, has mutated to Raunch, Ridiculousness, and Reassignment Surgery.  Your tuition dollars at work.  As if college didn’t cost enough already.

It was bad enough when incarcerated prisoners got this kind of elective surgery on the taxpayer’s dime, but now it will be applied to college students on the backs of parents and taxpayers, no doubt thanks to the insipid influence of Øbamacare.

From the original story in The Brown Daily Herald:

“Though doctors have declared these surgeries medically necessary, insurance companies typically deem them cosmetic and exclude them from coverage across the United States, Garrett said. Meanwhile, without access to hormones and surgery, transgender people may “face discrimination” because others may not accept their gender identity and presentation, she said.”

Well, it is good to know that their self esteem will be protected at the cost (estimated to reach $50K) of normal student health care.  From the same story:

“The insurance policy changes are part of a broader effort to address University policies affecting transgender students, Garrett said. Other attempts to improve University policies, she added, include training people at Health Services and Psychological Services, creating and disseminating lists of gender-neutral bathrooms on campus and advocating for gender-neutral housing options for students.”

“’I think we have a great reputation as a liberal school that attracts a lot of different students,’ Jennewein added. ‘I’m glad our student policies are now up to par with the student body.’”

Apparently, they are striving to create a lot of students that will be different than when they entered college….

Coming to a college near you?  It may be there already:

“Universities that offer coverage for at least some sex reassignment surgeries as of 2012 include Cornell, Harvard, Stanford University and Penn, according to resources compiled by the Human Rights Campaign, an LGBT advocacy and lobbying organization.”

The inmates are running the institution (of alleged learning)….

    Dad asks his daughter:? “Elizabeth, where do you want to go to college?”? Elizabeth answers: “I want to go to either Harvard, Penn or Stanford.”? And, “What do you want to be when you graduate?”? “I want to be a male.”

    Heck pretty soon, we will need to do away with those old obsolete terms like male and female or man and woman. Omniale or omnian, c’mon just get a little new age.

    I think the football team is going to have to rethink the old Ivy League play called ‘student body right’….
    How silly.

    A fool and his schmeckel are soon parted! ?It’s strange that lots of these folks want 100% natural things in their lives, but they’ll embrace such an unnatural and drastic option when maybe the real problem is in the head. ?Doctors screw up constantly, so if it ain’t broken-don’t fix it!
