Military Using Tax Payer Money to Fund Sex Changes

Earlier this week the Pentagon admitted that a U.S. Military member underwent a sex reassignment surgery, which American tax money paid for.

Buzzfeed reported:¬†“Pentagon confirms an active-duty military member received sex-reassignment surgery today, and it will pay for the procedure for the first time.”

A Defense Department spokesman deemed the operation¬†“medically necessary” because, “Military hospitals do not have the surgical expertise to perform this type of surgery, therefore it was conducted in a private hospital.”

“Since this service member had already begun a sex-reassignment course of treatment, and the treating doctor deemed this surgery medically necessary, a waiver was approved by the director of the Defense Health Agency. The Supplemental Health Care Program will cover this surgery in accordance with the Department’s interim guidance on transgender service members.”

    What bullschit. This is not emergency surgery. Romerica is spiraling downward at an accelerated pace. The bottom is quickly approaching.

      Well chosen word “Romerica”. Still, It took 1,700 years for Rome to implode. The American implosion began the instant the US CONVOLUTION [not a constitution] was adopted. The US Convolution was built to fail. So it has failed. The word Constitution comes in part from a Latin word that means “stand firm”. Principle mean doing the same exact thing under different circumstances. The US Constitution is to principle what anorexia is to a diet. Certitude should be the norm…not the exception.

      • Ricarrdo estavans

        We seem to agree, however it took Rome to implode approximately 400 years. Rome’s downward spiral began after Julius Cesar crossed the Rubicon sometime during 49 BC.

        • Knowledge Transfer

          Some historians paint a different time line. Nevertheless, like John Adams – our second president and the father of the American Navy knew: “Morality only is eternal. All the rest is balloon and bubble from the cradle to the grave.”

      I had my nose fixed, my dick lengthened and now I am happy.

  • So wrong. You can’t fix mental illness by chopping away functional body parts. Transgenders aren’t safe to put in combat. And if you can’t put them in combat, they have no business being in the military.

    • NC91

      What about all the plastic surgery done to cure depression?
      Transgenders are already in the military, any complaints about them?

      try THINKING

  • sandraleesmith46

    WASTING military money on these delusional people who shouldn’t even be in the military is just SO WRONG on so many levels! That money could provide better care for those who suffer wounds in service to the country; and/or to provide them with BETTER protections against such wounds in the field. That’s what money funneled to the military is intended for. Those don’t even SERVE their full time because the recovery time is so prolonged and they can’t be deployed or serve active duty roles during it; they don’t deserve that and it’s the only reason they’re enlisting anyway,

    • NC91

      You do know a lot-of junk.
      Injured while serving our country? Or maimed while fighting wars based on lies (Vietnam, Iraq.)?

      • sandraleesmith46

        Doesn’t matter; you may not like the war; THEY may not like the war, in fact, they probably dislike it more than you do; but they GO AND SERVE; these snowflakes are only in it for the surgery they want but don’t want to pay for!

        • NC91

          the Gulf of Tonkin incident, which precipitated the Vietnam war was shown to have been invented by politicians or generals. So the soldiers threw way their lives or were maimed for no good reason. They were treated as cannon fodder. Is this NOBLY SERVING their country? or foolishly obeying criminal orders?

          • sandraleesmith46

            Hindsight is 20/20; at the time we didn’t know it was a false flag. And the soldiers who fought shouldn’t be penalized for the LIES and DECEITS practiced in DC. I suppose you ran off to Canada or Mexico to avoid serving?

          • NC91

            But some people knew, and so others died because they did nothing- Bravo!

            I am from England-we didn’t have a draft. But I would have refused to kill.
            What did you do? Kill anyone?

          • sandraleesmith46

            No, actually my job was quite the opposite; I served as an RN. I volunteered, because many of those with whom I’d grown up and gone through school were already being called in and some were already names for the Wall, by the time I had my license. It seemed only right I give what I had to give.

          • NC91

            If you had known then that the Gulf of Tonkin incident, which precipitated the war, was just an invention, and that those killed had died unnecessarily, how would you have behaved? Joined a demonstration against the war?

          • sandraleesmith46

            Probably not; I might not have volunteered, but I’ll never know for sure since that’s already a long since done deal.

          • NC91

            your thinking is confused

          • sandraleesmith46

            No, it’s not. I think more likely, yours is by leftist propaganda.

          • Jim McCormack

            MAKING OTHER PEOPLE DIE FOR THEIR COUNTRY IS THE WAY YOU WIN WARS. LOOK AT WWII. THERE’D BE NO ENGLAND IF AMERICA HADN’T KILLED A HELLOF A LOT OF GERMANS. NOW YOU’RE LETTING MUSLIMS HAVE YOUR COUNTRY WHILE THEY KILL YOU.

  • Stephen DuPont

    WHY? This is an elective surgery. I served the military didn’t pay for elective surgeries. What’s next, face-lifts, Lipo?

  • ErnieLane

    Cut the defense budget. If they have money for this, they have too much. This from a gung-ho, pro-military veteran.

    • NC91

      they could start by cancelling your benefits.

  • John Flynn

    remember, this would’ve kept men out of the draft in ‘Nam, in the sixties…..

  • Orville R Allen Jr.

    You go out the same way you came in. The federal government should not pay for sex changes. And can’t use it as an incentive for enlistment at either end of the contract.

    • Gary D Flatt

      Not in the Army Obozo had invisioned. One incable of fighting his jihadist buddies.

      • NC91

        Do you have ANY evidence that the transgenders in the military are a problem, other than to bigots like you?

  • Gary D Flatt

    What a complete travesty, for OUR Army, to put up with? Thanks to Obozo and 63 Czars.

    • NC91

      You know the govt. paid $84 million for Viagra so that our REAL MEN could get it up? What a travesty for OUR Army!
      They should just roll over and be useful to a transgender that can

  • Elly

    These people who want sex change surgery should be paying for it themselves and not using our hard earned tax payer dollars for this. Besides this travesty, transgenders would not be the kind of person I would trust to back me up in times of need

    • NC91

      how many do you know well enough to make such a decision?

      • Elly

        NC91 I don’t have to know anyone to know that this type of surgery should not be paid for by taxpayers. These people should be paying for their own surgeries. We taxpayers pay for too many things, like illegals, section 8 housing, food stamps, etc.

        You sound like a left wing liberal who wants our government to pay for everything. Your post to ErnieLane was uncalled for. He served this country and should be receiving some veteran benefits. The illegal immigrants get far more benefits than those who served in our military. I’m sure you never served our country.

        • NC91

          I am a pacifist. I saved many people’s lives by not trying to kill them

  • Chuck

    Stop this travesty! This has nothing to do with our national defense! The country and our government has gone crazy!

  • What a bunch of BULLSH**! This is beyond belief!!

    • NC91

      so is TRUMP as president

  • Fran Leard

    I hope our President can stop this disgusting idiotic waste of taxpayer’s money. This is a horrible disgrace and should be stopped immediately. What is wrong with our backward military?

    • apzzyk

      Turmp’s whole adgenda is just full of waste. The VA Healthcare system has not been fully funded forever, but we have to give tax cuts to the wealthy and the corporations that the military protects; we have to have a Great Wall even though buying the matierials will increase the balance of trade problem; we have to deport 1/30 of the population because Congress has refused to keep up with reality for over 30 years; we have to break all treaties which Trump did not sign – so there goes 70 years of peace. We will have to charge the poor $70 instead of $20 to visit the best national parks, we have to get rid of the ACA so that 20 million will not have health insurance. I know that I have PTSD left over from the USMC, but I am on meds, so what about Trump?

  • apzzyk

    This and other ‘social issues’ things have been going on since forever. Women in the military, and those eligible for care under the VA or Tricare, can also get birth control and even abortions paid for by the taxpayers. Manning got her sex change operations at Ft. Levenworth. The first openly Trnas legislaor was elected to replace the conservative who was about ready to introduce the bath room bill in VA last week, Trum just went far beyond his authority to say that any employer can claim religious objections to paying for birth control for female employees in their insurance – a matter for congress. Those in the military who have begun the transition process will have to be given all treatment to complete that and continuing treatment as necessary – Trump is NOT god! The Fifth and most conservative circuit just ordered the INS to provide an abortion to a 17 year old detainee. I would like to see a total ban on drain cleaner, wire as in coat hangers, and even palm leaves, all of which can be used in a do-it-yourself abortion. I am a Quaker and where is my voice when it comes to doing violence?

  • sandy2249

    This is the liberal BS King Obama did to the military before he left office and it needs to be changed NOW ! Can you see a drill instructor guy acting like a woman telling troops what to do, NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I wonder if these guys that want to be a woman know they look like guys no matter what they do to themselves I think their they just look like ugly guy women ! Trump needs to stop the liberal BS King Obama did to destroy our military now ! I wonder if that guy joined to get a free surgery ! Everyone know medical care in the military is free or cost very little to service people and their families so I wonder if the surgery was planned before the guy even joined the military , I’d love to know when he joined and it wouldn’t surprise me that he joined the military while the worst president in America’s history was in office . Obama and liberals did everything they could to destroy the military while the idiot was in office , they stopped the pay raises that Bush gave the military started some kind of gay military club which actually had the first military gay parade I bet the terrorist were sitting back laughing their heads off because they knew Obama was a pansy and to be honest I think the guy that said Obama was a closet gay person was right because from day one he gave gays SPECIAL RIGHTS because they already have the same rights we have now so from day one he worked on getting gay’s and the other people like that special rights AND NEVER DID ANYTHING ELSE except destroy our military and make it the laughing stock of the world . I think people don’t say anything about Obama because he’s black and that’s total liberal BS but without abusing the race card the liberal party has nothing except massive liberal voter fraud WHICH TRUMP NEEDS TO STEP UP AND INVESTIGATE IT AND PASS A BILL LIKE YOU HAVE TO HAVE A PHOTO ID TO VOTE. Liberals have been stealing elections for a really long time and Trump doesn’t have to listen to liberal BS in both houses all he needs is a pen and paper to sign an executive order saying everyone that votes has to have a photo ID ! Everything in our country requires a photo ID even food stamps and welfare so the BS liberals say about it being racist because they can’t afford to get a photo ID is total liberal BS ! I can’t believe anyone believes the BS liberals & the liberal media tell them constantly because there’s a lot of liberals out there the liberal BS ! Trump needs to stop this BS and stop anything that makes our military look bad and stop the damage Obama & liberals did for 8 long years and start giving our troops pay raises because they deserve it ! I do think this guy joined the military while idiot Obama was in office to get a free operation and I hope there isn’t a line out the door waiting to get their operations ! Our military needs to be strong and look strong and we need to get rid of all the pansy crap Obama and liberals did while in office !

  • Ralph Richardson

    No pill, or Frankenstein surgery can change a persons gender. A person this delusional has no business in the military. Will insurance pay for other elective cosmetic surgery like breast enhancement, eye lift, nose job ect.

    • NC91

      but you are ignorant.

      • Ralph Richardson

        I am ignorant ? Why, because I know what gender I am ? Because I know chopping off my penis will not make me a woman ? Because I wont play make believe with grown adults ? Why am I ignorant ?

        • NC91

          do you accept that gays are not perverts who should be punished?

          • Ralph Richardson

            I don’t care what consenting adults do in private. I don’t think they should be punished in this life. I do think it is a choice. I don’t think it is normal. The thought of two men kissing makes me feel like I could vomit. That is my belief. That does not make me ignorant. You may have another belief, and that’s fine. There are only 2 genders, and that is fact.

          • NC91

            you are a STOOPID bigot.

          • Ralph Richardson

            If honesty makes me a bigot than so be it. If I am a bigot. you are a hypocrite. Hey, just because I don’t want to play make believe, does not mean you can’t. What ever blows your hair back. Not my cup o tea.

    • NC91

      if the military has to pay $84 million for Viagra for the poor soldiers with useless dicks, maybe they would be better off having their dicks cut off? Then at least they could be fucked.

      • Ralph Richardson

        Thats nasty. I don’t think taxpayers should have to pay for Viagra, or birth control either.

        • NC91

          But they DO pay for Viagra. So please direct your bitching towards a more appropriate target- the impotent military.

          • Ralph Richardson

            The article, and comment were about money spent having genitalia mutilated to enhance a costume. Then expect me to pretend with you. People are not allowed to join the military for many reasons. It is my opinion gender deranged is a damn good reason. Make believe might be fun on Halloween, but get real. DNA is DNA.

  • Ralph Richardson

    Obviously the military has to much money on its hands. Cut the budget.

  • Robert Dimmock

    This is such a large load of crap. The people wanting this surgery should be charged one quarter of their pay each month and extend on active duty until the debtis fully paid. Fair is Fair. Emergency surgery that is B.S.

  • randy

    OHHHHH HEELLLLLLLLNNNNNOOOOOOOO

  • John A Cenc

    This is BULLSHIT. If these faggots want this done they should pay for it. NOT US!.

    • NC91

      I’d rather pay for that than for someone to be killed

  • Estell Newton

    That should not be funded by taxpayer money. They want it done, they should get out of the service and pay for it themselves.
    They cannot be combat ready if they are recooperating from surgery.

  • Randy Lefebvre

    If you need to complete the surgery, then it should be your MONEY paying for it. I can barely pay my Medical Insurance, why do I have to submit to my tax dollars paying for this?

  • Robert Earl

    Maybe DOD should allow severely obese personnel to enlist and declare it a medical necessity to give them gastric bypass surgery? No one has a right to serve in the military. DOD has an obligation to use its funding wisely to have the strongest military possible. Like overweight individuals, transgenders have too much baggage to serve

  • Deplorable Irredeemable Susan

    This is disgusting to make tax payers pay for this elective surgery. It is NOT medically necessary!
    I suppose they will make us pay for breast enhancement and for all subsequent surgeries.
    Why not be who and what God created you to be? What a novel idea.
    The perverts are now trying to get kindergarteners to tell their parents they want to be transgender!
    Leave our children alone! Do not try to transfer your dysphoria psychosis onto our innocent children.
    Some scary drag-queen was reading to innocent children at the Michelle Obama Library. Sickening!

  • game50

    OOOOOOOOOOOO HELL NO…. if they want to change and know who they want to be…then do it BEFORE going into the Military … use their OWN MONEY….and NO the TAX PAYERS MONEY….THIS SH-t needs to stop….OBAMA (BARRY SOETORO) is no longer in our W.H. ( the Illegal fraud that he is ….. just because Michelle a TRANSGENDER ) Doesn’t give the Military the right to use tax payer monies for their operation….

  • HeedTheseWords

    When joining the military, drafted or volunteered, that person becomes property of the US Government. Any destruction or modification of that person must be pre-approved by US Govt. authorities. An after-the-fact decision to justify and use taxpayer money to continue a wrongful act is a reason to give both the director and the service member dishonorable discharges.
