Well isn’t that special?!
Use the correct term, friends. Don’t be like Shaney B. and call it “The Forbidden Snip.” That would be wrong.
Who comes up with these terms? You and I think of it (well, if we think of it at all, which I’d rather not) as sex-change surgery. But no! We have to be politically correct with everything now, so it’s “gender reassignment” surgery.
My highly insensitive producer, Shaney B., wants to call it “The Forbidden Snip,” but of course that is extremely insensitive and wrong and should not be said, so I will not say “The Forbidden Snip” and you shouldn’t either.
But guess what we will be doing: Paying for it!
Oh yes. Thanks to ObamaCare, which we had to pass to find out what was in it, those getting “gender reassignment” surgery are now doing so on our dime:
Among the less-talked-about implications of the Affordable Care Act is the relief it is providing to many transgender people, many of whom are low-income and who have struggled to obtain health coverage.
Getting jobs that offer insurance often has been difficult for transgender people and the cost of purchasing plans on the private market can be prohibitive. Some have been denied policies altogether after being diagnosed with “gender identity disorder,” often considered a pre-existing condition.
