Socialized Medicine=Mandatory Sex Changes!

'You won't be needing this anymore'Little-known fact about this revolutionary new healthcare scheme for all Americans: it will force you to have your genitals remade into opposite-looking genitals. But the procedure will be “free,” sort of, just like those abortions you’ll be enjoying on demand.

So suggests an ambiguously titled press release from Matt Barber, Director of Cultural Affairs with both Liberty Counsel and Liberty Alliance Action:

ObamaCare Likely to Mandate Free “Sex-Change” Surgeries

Washington, DC – When asked by Senator Orin Hatch (R-UT) whether President Obama’s proposed socialized healthcare plan will mandate taxpayer funded abortion, Senator Barbara Mikulski (D-MD) admitted that it will require “any service deemed medically necessary or medically appropriate.” It now appears that the plan’s “medically appropriate” umbrella is far more expansive than most Americans could have imagined.

[...]

Matt Barber, Director of Cultural Affairs with both Liberty Counsel and Liberty Alliance Action commented: “There’s a gulf of difference between what Obama and liberals in Congress, and the American people deem ‘medically appropriate;’ especially when it’s ‘we the people’ footing the bill. To force Americans, against their conscience, to fund abortion on demand and to facilitate gender confusion by subsidizing the elective practice of genital ‘sex-change’ mutilation is unconscionable.

“After hearing Sen. Mikulski’s ‘any service deemed…medically appropriate’ admission, I was prompted to dig a little deeper. I contacted the offices of Sen. Harry Reid, Rep. Charlie Rangel, Rep. Barney Frank and the House Subcommittee on Health. I asked, very simply, for ‘an assurance that the proposed healthcare plan will not allow taxpayer funded gender reassignment surgeries or hormone therapies.’ When faced with the bill’s relevant language, every staffer I spoke with either declined to answer or would neither confirm nor deny that such procedures would be covered.”

And so on and so forth. The point is, kiss your reproductive equipment goodbye, because Obama’s going to take it.

    With enough of said surgeries done in America, it may truly be possible to eat a bag of dicks, Matt Barber. If, indeed, that is your name.

  2. The Cold Sea

    Oh noes! The Democrats wantz my junk!

    On the other hand, if we could cut the nutz off of Red State America, we might be getting somewhere.

    Worst part of Reconstruction? The Union didn’t sterilize the Confeds.

  3. Cape Clod

    There are a number of people alive today for whom it would be ‘medically appropriate’ to take away their reproductive equiptment. Lou Dobbs, Bill O’Reily, Rush, whatever Ann Coulter has, and I’m sure the taxpayers would cheerfully fund such a procedure.

  4. Humpback

    If it is a public funding option, I think it will be subject to vote of citizens who gets what equipment. And perhaps it can be changed every two years.

  5. germansteel

    This would be, truly, “change” – I leave it up to every god-fearing American to decide on their own if it would be “change that we can believe in.”

  6. Norbert

    Do you have any idea how long the wait is in socialist Canuckistan to get a downstairs mix-up sorted out? My advice: rush out and get it done now, in a for-profit hospital while you still can! If Nobamacare goes through, there’s going to be a stampede to some bastion of free enterprise like el Clinico del Cambio Sexualistico de Tijuana.

  7. queeraselvis v 2.0

    Well, yay. I can finally have that free abortion I’ve been planning on having all these years.

  8. The Cold Sea

    [re=377781]Cape Clod[/re]: Coulter is a Convservative. He paid for her own sex re-assignment surgery.

  9. Diacritic

    It must count as “declined to answer” if you say, “I do not have time for your bullshit questions, you waste of bosons.”

    “kiss your reproductive equipment goodbye”

    Republicans won’t vote for any bill that will force them to give up screwing boys and hookers.

  11. Snarkalicious

    So when Bobby Jindhal takes power in a bloody coup, he’ll walk into the oval office only to find, to his horror (or perhaps delight…who’s to say?), 5 million severed American dicks thumbtacked to the walls? Somebody make sure to put that on the YouTube, aight?

  12. Gopherit

    Facilitating gender confusion? Are you sure the republicans are going to give up their large-tittied tranny hookers that easily?

    If only some other forward-thinking POTUS had thunk of this (JFK, I’m looking toward YOUR crypt) then Obama Mama would have had no need to go off race mixin’ and we wouldn’t be engaged in the biggest debate in the history of everything ever.

    First gender mutilation surgey, the next thing you know the taxpayers will have to pay for babies to have their cleft palates fixed, then free medicine for TB patients, then all the non-whites will get to get “The Michael Jackson Treatment” free of charge. Then how will we know who is better than whom?

    mandatory sex change, mandatory abortions, mandatory death for teh olds.

    whats not to like?

  18. Bill E Pilgrim

    I think they read “gender reassignment surgeries” and thought it meant actually being assigned.

    “Okay, listen up people, we need more females. So you, you and you, you’ve been reassigned. Go out there and lose one for the Gipper! You can lose the other one for whoever you want.

    …I’m pretty sure the only time that gender reassignment surgery is medically necessary is in the case of a child with ambiguous genitalia. So while some people argue that parents should wait until the child is old enough to decide for themselves, I would be very surprised if a doctor deemed gender reassignment medically necessary for voluntary sex changes.

  29. give us a bob

    Am I not the only one who sees hilarious (yet somewhat troubling) angles in a neocon think thank like Liberty Alliance Action claiming to know best about personal gender assignment?

    Because it’s not link anyone in the GOP has ever suffered the occasional “gender confusion” with a rosy-cheeked congressional page, or two, or three.

    Perhaps Mr. Barber is concerned many party members will actually go for the sex-change freebie, so that they can once and for put behind them all these pesky problem with buggery.

    [re=377849]give us a bob[/re]: Gender confusion is a huge problem! Like when your wife calls while that cute UPS guy is in the office wearing his brown shorts, and you can’t tell which one is giving you a boehner. Or you’re at a night club with your buddies and the dancers are so pretty, and then — can you believe it? — they start stripping…and then they turn out to be guys!

    You feel dirty! You’re confused! And gubermint should facilitate this? No way!

  32. stuffisthings

    The Iranian government pays for 1/2 the cost of sex change operations (apparently this is more acceptable to Allah than man-on-man sexing). I would love to see the press release that results if Mr. Barber finds out about this fact. MUSLIM SOCIALISM!

    Does this mean we should be on the lookout for government-mandated TruckLabiaz? What a majora bummer.

  39. stuffisthings

    [re=377865]Bearbloke[/re]: Yeah really, the BBC article I read claimed these Iranian guys were so effeminate they couldn’t work or go to school with the real men. But every Iranian man I’ve met makes the fellas in Twilight look like grizzled lumberjacks, so I can’t imagine what they did to tip everyone off, unless “acting effeminate” is a code word for “propositioning everyone for buttsex, all the time.” What’s next, Obama, subsidies for hair gel, tight-fitting knockoff designer T-shirts, and elaborate belts?

  40. AnnieGetYourFun

    [re=377871]stuffisthings[/re]: So, so incredibly true.

    Also, Obama can’t take away our sex organs, because then he won’t be able to force us to have abortions anymore.

    Too, I like that the right is referring to gender reassignment as “surgery mutilation.” That’s right, utilize that unrelated cause, wingnuts.

  41. One Yield Regular

    “…facilitate gender confusion” – To quote Joe Biden: Jesus Christ. This miserable, crappy little man has obviously never met a transsexual in his life. The whole point of the surgery is to eliminate gender confusion. I wish him the best:

    “We’re deeply sorry, Mr. Barber. We’d *really* like to give you the kidney you need, but we just can’t. Back in 2009, Congress voted down health reform that would have covered your case, because a few conservatives objected to sex-change surgery also being covered in the reform. It’s risky, but your best bet is to try the organ-trafficking black market in Eastern Europe. Good luck!”

  42. Naked Bunny with a Whip

    Barber has a point, but the expense will be more than balanced by not covering any brain or heart operations on Republicans.

  43. karen

    “and to facilitate gender confusion by subsidizing the elective practice of genital ‘sex-change’ mutilation is unconscionable. ”

    …I…have no words to describe this stupidity.

  44. lee hussein oswald

    This is going to be great for the citizens of Trinidad, CO, the “sex change capital of the US”. The town could use some revitalizing.

    If we all enter med school now, we could obtain gender mutilation degrees just in time for this next gold rush.

    Alas, no savings to be had there. In order to need those types of operations, Republicans would need to have those types of organs.

  47. hobospacejunkie

    Hey Matt Barber, you want the US American people weighing in and deciding what’s medically necessary when you’re in the ER with a gerbil up your wazoo, or do you want a medical doctor making that decision? Howzabout we leave all those decisions up to medical doctors and you eat your failed culture war with a side of surgically-removed poisoned rat dicks, you fucking busy body.

    Mandatory gender reassignment? I’m really ambivalent about this one.

    I can think of hundreds of women whom I’d never want to see sporting the dangly bits; however, on a more personal level, I’ve often thought that I might be a lesbian trapped in a man’s body.

    In other news, I’m pretty sure this is the only diagnosable condition Republicans can get away with objecting to having to treat. Don’t want END? Scare people about men dressed as women waiting to rape your daughters in the restroom. Don’t want health care? Tell them the Obots are coming for your genitals!
