A Dose of Sanity: SCOTUS Refuses to Make Texas Prison Pay for Sex Change

Any doctor who surgically mutilates someone to make that person appear as the other gender should lose his license. It’s immoral to take advantage of someone’s mental illness to make a profit off of harming a person like that. We accept that when someone with body dysmorphia wants a doctor to cut off a healthy arm or leg, but not when someone with gender dysmorphia wants a doctor to cut off his penis. It’s bizarre.

Of course, we have gone farther than that and are increasingly looking for ways to force the state to pay for the hundred thousand dollars plus required to make someone appear to be a member of the opposite sex. Well, the Supreme Court has injected a dose of sanity into this whole conversation.

WASHINGTON – The Supreme Court on Monday refused to hear an appeal by a convicted murderer who filed a civil rights lawsuit because Texas prison officials denied her request to be considered for gender reassignment surgery.

The justices let stand a lower court’s decision to reject the claim by inmate Vanessa Lynn Gibson that denying the surgery request violated the Eighth Amendment prohibition against cruel and unusual punishment.

Gibson, 41, who is transgender and also goes by the name Scott in court papers, was assigned male at birth and has lived as a female since age 15. Gibson was incarcerated in 1995 for aggravated assault, then was convicted of murdering a fellow inmate in 1997. She is eligible for parole in 2021.

…Gibson was provided with hormone therapy, but Texas has no policy allowing for “irreversible surgical intervention,” according to the state.

Gibson sued in federal court claiming that by refusing to conduct a medical evaluation for gender reassignment surgery prison officials were deliberately indifferent to her serious medical needs, a form of banned cruel and unusual punishment.

…In a 2016 interview with CBS affiliate KWTX, Gibson threatened to “castrate” herself if the state failed to accede to her request.

You want a doctor to mutilate you? Ok, well since it’s not illegal, fine, then pay for it YOURSELF. The idea that taxpayers who think you should be seeing a therapist should be forced to pay for surgery that shouldn’t exist in the first place is nuts. Kudos to the Supreme Court for refusing to go along with this woke charade.
