Incinerate the lawyers. Lawsuits will be much cheaper then.

You ask a lot of questions that are already answered. Have you considered reading the entire thread, thoroughly?

On a system by system basis, absolutely. The military prison system being a separate entity from the civilian prison system. One of those things you sign on for when you pledge the oath and agree to join the armed forces.

Right, your conversation is boring.

Can someone tell me why it is that a person who believes him-/herself to be of another gender is given a *** change, when someone who believes he/she can fly isn't given wings? I mean, seriously, why not? If I told people that I believe myself to be a peacock, people would call me a ******* lunatic, but if I told them that I feel like a woman trapped in a man's body, they'd pat me on the back and chip in for a *** change. What gives?

Also, if I do believe that I'm a peacock, could I get out of jail by having wing and beak surgery and demanding a transfer to an aviary?

Anyone?

We can't rewire the brain to work in a more "normal" manner. So instead we rework the body to match the brain. Not the best of solutions perhaps, but given the high rate of suicide associated with GID it's much better than doing nothing. I'm also going with the understanding that the surgery is not a common treatment method, and many people never go that far.

Linky Never mind, they actually have the whole article available for free for once. Smiley: rolleyes

As for whether or not any of this is a treatment that should be paid for with taxes, well that's still debatable as you can see.

Also, if you can make me fly with wings stop holding out. I have hired goons you know... Smiley: mad

I feel like a god in a mortal's body. So you science folks and tax payers get to work on those sacrifices at the very least.

We're working on it. God module development is running frustratingly behind schedule. Smiley: frown

In the meantime I recommend playing SIMS, or similar games.

I'm going to demand that I feel like a free man in an imprisoned man's body and they need to make my body match my mind or else they're bigots 'n stuff.

It's fool-proof!

Okay, so here's the thing. Unlike someone believing they can fly, when a trans person says they are a certain gender, they don't just believe it to be true, it actually is true. Gender is not determined by genitals, or x/y chromosomes. It is determined completely independent of ***. Now, one reason a *** change is often necessary in this case is because such people ARE treated like lunatics otherwise. It is the only way to get society to treat you as they would anyone else with the same gender.

Prove Mazra really isn't a peacock in a human body. Or I'm not really a god in a mortal body.

You may well be, I better stay safe. Smiley: tinfoilhat

Now if people with delusions of grandeur (or delusions of peacock-ness?) committed suicide at an alarming rate, someone would be paying people like me to find solutions for you.

Got to love the Gbaji/Alma style slippery slope arguments. Are you going to talk about marrying goats and toasters next?

You scientists stink. My mild schizophrenia caused by post traumatic stress disorder causes a generally positive effect on my life and it doesn't deserve so much as a second look. Smiley: glare

Well we're always for hire if there's something else you'd like us to look at. $75/hour and I'll suck the proteins out of just about anything and fling them into oscillating electrical field for you.

We're cheaper than a disturbing number of jobs, that being only one of the more disturbing.

Well you have to cut corners somewhere if you want to keep costs down, it's a competitive marketplace. Besides those government clients aren't paying out like they used to.
