A: Yes. Yes, it clearly is.
A woman who claims she was rushed into transgender surgery is suing the doctors who gave her a double mastectomy as a child.
Luka Hein was given the irreversible operation at 16 and says the surgery has left her with daily pain, while the hormone drugs may have robbed her of the chance of becoming a mother.
The Minnesotan, now 21, suffered a traumatizing few years as a teenager when her parents went through a bitter divorce and she was groomed by a man she met on the internet.
She became increasingly withdrawn and spent more time online, where she began following trans influencers and became convinced she was born the wrong gender.
Luka claims she was diagnosed with gender dysphoria by a therapist within an hour during her first session and was referred for ‘top’ surgery after her second appointment.
She told DailyMail.com: ‘I was going through the darkest and most chaotic time in my life, and instead of being given the help I needed, these doctors affirmed that chaos into reality.’
She added: ‘I don’t think kids can ever consent to having essentially full bodily functions taken away at a young age before they even know what that means.
‘I was talked into medical intervention that I could not fully understand the long-term impacts and consequences of.’
Well, what else would you expect? There’s gold in them thar hills. Or, in cases like this, permanently removing them. It ain’t about you, kiddo; it’s about that nice second or third home at the beach. Exhibit B for the prosecution:
Because OF COURSE it should be. What are you, some kind of Neanderthal Ultra MEGA MAGA Über-fascist or something?
An editorial by doctors from the Canadian Medical Association (CMA) suggests treatments like hair removal and facial injectables should be paid for by the country’s Medicare, a publicly funded healthcare system.
‘Minimally invasive procedures such as facial injectables and hair removal warrant consideration for public health care funding across Canadian jurisdictions,’ wrote Dr Katie Ross and Dr Sarah Fraser, Faculty of Medicine, Dalhousie University, Halifax, Nova Scotia.
‘Public funding for such procedures, which are currently funded in only two jurisdictions in Canada, warrants serious consideration in all provinces and territories,’ the authors concluded.
Canada’s Medicare is funded and administered primarily by each of the country’s provinces and the programs receive assistance from the federal government.
It’s as Ace says:
If just a few judges refuse to dismiss these cases — doctors will claim the patient signed informed consent releases, but judges routinely invalidate those; they’ll be much less willing to threaten Big Amputation — then a few juries will issue some jackpot awards with huge punitive damages sums and then the tide of insanity will finally begin to recede.
Indeed so. So it has been written, so let it be done—assuming there are any judges left in Red Canada* sane enough to bring this insanity to a screeching halt by locking down the cookie jar for greedhead doctors and surgeons post haste.
*Ace’s term, which I will be duly swiping henceforth, whenever there’s a story from Trudeau’s Playground I actually care enough about to bother posting on
