More Liberal Insanity: D.C. Major Orders City, Taxpayers to Fund ‘Sex Change’ Operations

Key selections from recent Washington Times Article –

D.C. Mayor Vincent C. Gray on Thursday announced that the city will recognize gender dysphoria as a medical condition, forcing to insurance companies to cover treatments such as gender-reassignment surgery for transgender people.

The coverage extends to all D.C. residents with group or individual health insurance — including the roughly one-third of city residents receiving Medicaid benefits — whose doctors diagnose the condition and for whom treatment is deemed medically necessary.

“This action places the District at the forefront of advancing the rights of transgender individuals,” Mayor Gray said at his ceremonial office at City Hall. The District joins California, Colorado, Connecticut, Oregon and Vermont in requiring the coverage, which the federal government will not be made to offer to its employees.

Transgender activists applauded the move, saying it guarantees coverage for treatments such as gender reassignment surgery that can cost tens of thousands of dollars and which have been denied by insurance companies that deemed the procedures cosmetic…

The National Center for Transgender Equality estimates that 2,000 transgender people live in the District, though it’s unclear know how many might seek treatment under the coverage.

A survey last year of more than 600 transgender people from the D.C. area indicated that 46 percent living in the area earn less than $10,000 a year — making the specific inclusion of Medicaid in Thursday’s announcement an important factor, said Nico Quintana, a senior organizer with the DC Trans Coalition.

City officials pointed out that the move was a clarification to a bulletin issued in March notifying health insurers to remove language that discriminated on the basis of gender identity and expression so that transgender individuals could obtain medical benefits…

“These residents should not have to pay exorbitant out-of-pocket expenses for medically necessary treatment when those without gender dysphoria do not,” said Mr. Gray, who is running for re-election this year among a crowded field of contenders.

NO, Mayor Gray it will now be the sane taxpayers that will have to foot the bill for the “exorbitant” costs!

So, the next time someone asks you how the homosexual agenda’s redefining of gender roles affects you, remind them that it hits you hard in YOUR pocket book. YOUR hard-earned tax dollars will go towards paying for other people’s mental delusions! That’s how it will affect YOU!

Homosexual Agenda and the US Military

Dr. Sonny Hernandez

Homosexual Agenda and the US Military is a field manual for US service members and military chaplains. This Gospel-Centered, polemical book exposes the homosexual agenda that adversely affects Religious Liberty for Christians. There are several homosexual activists that will demand equality and tolerance. However, homosexual activists are not so equal or tolerant towards anyone that disagrees with their position on same sex marriage or transgenderism. They will claim to love all, but they really do not mean all—they mean agenda. This is because the homosexual agenda has a definition for inclusivity—their way or the highway.
