pssst. hey there. need money from the state? threaten suicide and win the lotto

How’s this for a lark boys and girls?
Want money from the state?
Threaten suicide.
BINGO! 
You Win.

Well, not exactly a lark when you read the story.
I understand that there truly are people born with the wrong parts.
But does it have to take three marriages to three (I assume) unsuspecting women to come to terms with that?
You have to wonder about this fruit loop. Expression used in this instance to describe it’s thinking if genuine.

While I’m at it, what’s with the phrase, “gender realignment” all about? Why can’t they say what it is? A sex change operation.  Realignment I believe implies something a bit different. Doesn’t it?

She (he?) I guess now a she, accuses the NHS of leaving him half man and half woman because at age 40, the estrogen injections didn’t grow breasts. Every man’s dream. 
So what does that say about very unfortunate women who have had breasts removed due to cancer? Are they half women?  Judging by his train of thought, they may be.  Of course this character, who still looks like a male (and not a pretty one) in drag, believes she has a right of some kind to public money to make him/her as womanly as his deluded imagination will allow.

She’s a worker in a charity shop. Uh huh.  Probably not even full time and just hasn’t the money. But the taxpayer does. 

HALT! STOP! Give me your money or I’ll kill myself.

I guess that’s one way to collect your dream.


Transsexual’s fight for implants lands the taxpayer with a bill for £18,000

By Andrew Levy

A transsexual has won the right to have £8,000 breast implants – following a battle funded by £10,000 of legal aid.
Miranda Lee, 40, had gender realignment surgery costing £60,000 in 2009, paid for with NHS money.

The process was due to be completed with the breast augmentation, but she was then told the money would not be made available.
Miss Lee, who complained that she had been left ‘half man, half woman’, attempted suicide and has been on anti-depressants.

She decided to fight the decision and was granted legal aid in June.
Her case was heard by an NHS review panel last month, and it has now ruled in her favour.
The charity shop worker, from Southend, Essex, said she was delighted at the U-turn but wanted compensation for the stress of her ‘inhumane and insensitive’ treatment.
‘The way my case was handled was appalling,’ she said. ‘These people haven’t a care in the world about people. It’s all about money to them.’
Miss Lee, born Raymond Harwood, first felt she was the wrong sex when she was 16 but went on to marry three times and have two children.

Her last marriage ended in 2000 and in 2005 she went to her GP about gender realignment.

She began living as a woman in 2007 and had a series of operations at Charing Cross Hospital in London from July 2009, including having her male genitalia removed and her voice altered.

She was already receiving hormone therapy in the form of estrogen to help her develop breasts but this was not working, meaning she needed implants.

The East of England Specialised Commissioning Group, which had paid for the sex change out of a £700million annual fund raised from contributions from the 13 primary care trusts in the region, refused to approve the procedure.
Although it pays for a range of care, it said breast augmentation as part of a sex change was not part of its remit.

Just a couple of reader quotes from the Mail.

This is absolutely nuts! I’ve seen my local PCT struggle to cope with resources for people with genuine physical health problems yet a guy who cannot grow breasts is demanding surgery. There are thousands of natural girls out there who also can’t grow breasts! It’s not something that defines someone as female. I’ve got male friends with boobs! People like this make me angry that people will die through their selfish need to suck resources!

I find this unfair on women who like my self didn’t form a chest or have lost them due to illness or weightloss. I tryied in 2009 to have breast inplants on the NHS as I’m 23 and lost 6 and half stone which lead to me losing my chest, I got turned away from them though I suffer depression and “was” constantly wanting my chest back. Now I’ve decided to save up and buy my self a pair in the future, But I still find it wrong that the real women who have the right for a chest get turned away.

Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:

  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
