Tony Perkins: Never a wrong time to advocate hate

Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council said last Wednesday that the US armed forces should be shut down rather than allow transgender service members.

So we see the administration pushing forward without congressional input on integrating transgenders [sic] into our nation’s military. What else can this administration do to the military other than just disband it?

Tony Perkins goes full-on bonkers. Nobody notices the difference

Last Tuesday court-appointed receiver who has managed health care for California prisons under federal court order since the Scwarzenegger administration announced new guidelines which authorize surgical procedures for transgender inmates suffering from severe gender dysphoria who desire surgery.

The guidelines call for panels of state health professionals to review appeals for sex-reassignment surgery from inmates whose doctors say their patients are under significant distress because of a mental condition known as gender dysphoria. The inmate must have been taking hormones for at least a year and have consistently expressed a desire to change his or her biological gender before an operation can be approved.

Prison officials have estimated the cost of the state-funded operations as high as $100,000. But the Transgender Law Center in San Francisco, which has represented two inmates in suits against the state, says each operation would cost $15,000 to $30,000.

California's Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation says it has about 385 transgender inmates, most of them male-to-female, who are currently undergoing hormone therapy.
