Free Sex Change for Convicted Felons goes too Far

The radio waves and Internet have been abuzz recently with the court case of a transgendered inmate, Michelle Kosilek (formerly Robert) who is suing to be allowed a sex change in prison. Michelle, a convicted murderer is suing because she has been refused sex-change surgery, and treatments such as hair removal and hormone treatment.

This has angered some in the blogosphere, who are vehemently against our tax dollars being used to provide a sex change for a convicted felon. Michelle claims that “The greatest loss is the dying I do inside a little bit every day.”

PLEASE!

Perhaps you should have thought about that before you murdered your wife.

It’s ridiculous that lawyers are claiming this as an example of poor treatment transgendered inmates receive. Very few hardworking, law abiding transsexuals can afford to have sex reassignment surgery. We shouldn’t be providing this free of charge to criminals.

Judge Mark Wolf should be ashamed of himself for ruling that tax payers should foot the more than $20,000 required for the surgery.

Papamoka sums it up nicely:

This monster is making the crime he committed secondary in public opinion and murder is still murder but his sex change is more important to him? Screw him …. He killed his wife! This is not a transgender argument as much as it is a manipulative monster using up court time for something that should be a simple answer. NO! You can not have a sex change operation!

I’m passionate about creating a safe space for everyone in the transgender community to find laughter and friendship on their journey. I completed my physical transition in 2011 and through it I lost everything, and gained everything. I am blessed that I was forced to gaze inward and embark on the journey to discover and live my authentic self. My deepest wish is that all who wander here may find peace, happiness and freedom.

Susan, I’m sorry for your loss.
This emphasizes the pain he has caused – lest we forget there are many people’s lives that this murderer has ruined.

So sorry Susan. maybe if we spent less tax money on coddling criminals all the time, then we would have more dollars available for law abiding citizens to have healthcare and other more important resources. I have zero sympathy for criminals, especially repeat criminals, especially those that involve any violent crimes, drugs, gang activity, robbery, breaking and entering, or sex offenses, especially against children. Some crimes I can understand making a mistake if you learn from it and do not do it again, but I don’t care if it is shoplifting bubble gum. If you do it enough times, there… Read more »

While I believe this person should not get the surgery, I believe it for different matters, such as the fact that this person may not have the mental sanity to decide properly. However, I do believe there should be surgery for some inmates after serious psychiatric evaluation and years of proven, consistent desire for a sex change. It should be accompanied with a court ordered name change and other legal issues should be taken into consideration.

when the media has a go of a story like this it really puts us a few steps backwards in the minds of the ignorant.This happened last year when the murdering doctor,who happened to be pushing their “Transrights” while serving time,hung itself.The Boston area media had a real go at the transworld with that one.So bad that only the local Unitarian minister could get one ignorant paper to shut up…power of the press doesn’t always help our cause..

I don’t understand why this is even an issue, we all make bad choices in life albeit some worse than others & this person is the mother of all mess ups. I’m not going to even talk about what a loser Kosilek is as i believe we are all in agreement on that, simply put this person is a monster! this being said where is the issue? I myself am m2f and the point of surgery and electrolysis is for 2 reasons 1: to make you look more to how you feel and 2: make you fit better in the… Read more »

Exactly. So many of us struggle to be able to afford our own gender needs, so why should our hard earned tax dollars go to reward someone like this with free hormones, SRS, etc for killing her wife?
