Two transgender employees at a University in Wisconsin filed a lawsuit against the university for refusal to pay for gender reassignment surgery.
The two transgender employees are saying that they are being discriminated against because their tax-payer funded health insurance won’t cover gender reassignment surgery. Shannon Andrews and Alina Boyden are both males who “identify” as female.
From The Blaze:
“Many people can relate to paying into an insurance plan only to be told that the treatment they need is not covered,” Andrews said in a statement, according to the Milwaukee-Wisconsin Journal Sentinel. “But when the reason you are denied coverage is because of who you are, it is even more painful. And it’s clearly discrimination.”
Boyden has not undergone gender reassignment surgery yet because he knows the claim will be rejected by the insurance company.
“As a result of (state policies), plaintiffs’ health insurance plans single out transgender employees for unequal treatment by categorically depriving them of all medical care for gender dysphoria, a serious medical condition codified in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders and International Classification of Diseases,” the lawsuit read.
It is ridiculous that they expect tax payers to fund their sex change. What’s next? Breast implants? Who qualifies for breast implants? Can a woman who identifies as a bigger chested woman get them, too?
This community is pushing it, asking for more and more rights beyond any normal citizen. Where will this stop? Now it’s discrimination to refuse to fund gender reassignment surgery. Wow…
