Remember those links I posted? It was just a small sampling of the psychiatrists, psychologists, endocrinologists, neurologists, geneticists, and clinicians who are saying "Yes this is a real thing" and "Yes we can and should treat this and the treatment is gender transition".
That's a pretty compelling argument for GRS to be covered by insurance.
I'm sorry, I'd have to disagree.
Yes, treatment should remain an option.
But for it to be covered by welfare, well...
Are you aware of how many people who need welfare medical insurance, but can't get it because they are just barely over the ridiculously low line?
Say you have 3 people who need to use a hospital right now.
Person A needs* a gender transition surgery.
Person B has appendicitis.
Person C has a swollen lymph node.
*"Needs", assuming we go by the links you posted.
You only have enough money for one.
Which do you do?
When the Healthcare system is fixed so that the majority of people who need insurance, can get insurance, when we actually have the money to cover what people need, then fine. THEN we can see about allowing transgender treatments. But not a day before. There are real people out there, dying on the streets because they can't afford life-saving treatment. Are you saying we should just forget them because some guy thinks he should be a girl or vice-versa?
