Murderer Demands Taxpayers Pay for His Sex Change

Written by commonsensejournal on June 5th, 2006

From the “you can’t make this up” section, a 57-year-old murderer named Robert Kosilek wants tax payers to pay for his sex change surgery:

A man serving a life sentence for the murder of his wife is asking a federal judge to order the state to pay for a sex-change operation for him, saying that denying him the surgery amounts to cruel and unusual punishment.

Kosilek, 57, was convicted of strangling his wife, Cheryl, in 1990.

In 2002, U.S. District Judge Mark Wolf ruled that Kosilek _ who now goes by the name of Michelle _ was entitled to treatment for gender identity disorder, but stopped short of ordering the state to pay for the sex-change operation.

Kosilek sued the Department of Correction for the second time last year, saying that numerous psychiatrists who had examined him _ including two of the DOC’s own experts _ had determined that a sex- change operation is “medically necessary.”

“We ask that gender identity disorder be treated like any other medical condition,” said Kosilek’s attorney, Frances Cohen.

Two psychiatrists will testify that Kosilek functions “at a very high level” and that a sex-change operation is not medically necessary, McFarland said.

Dr. George Richard Brown, a psychiatrist who said he has treated over 1,000 patients with gender identity disorder since 1979, acknowledged that Kosilek’s depression and anxiety have improved since he began receiving female hormones. But he said that improvement was based on Kosilek’s sense of hope that he will be allowed to become a woman.

“I believe that she would kill herself,” Brown said, when asked by Kosilek’s attorney what would happen if Kosilek does not have a sex- change operation.

“I don’t believe she would consider life worth living without hope for completion of her treatment plan,” he said.

What a joke. Criminals that murder or rape should not even think about asking for tax payer dollars to pay for silly things like sex change surgeries. It’s bad enough they are allowed to work out and have better medical treatment than many law-abiding citizens. The age of entitlement seems to know no bounds.

Notice how the pro-sex change psychiatrist refers to this murderer as a “she” and “her.” So do the Associated Press and magazines like Rolling Stone, who deny reality and call a person by “she” even if the person is genetically and physically a man.
