Skip to comments.Sandra Fluke, Gender Reassignment, and Health Insurance
Posted on 03/05/2012 5:42:16 PM PST by Free ThinkerNY
Sandra Fluke is being sold by the left as something she's not. Namely a random co-ed from Georgetown law who found herself mixed up in the latest front of the culture war who was simply looking to make sure needy women had access to birth control. That, of course, is not the case.
As many have already uncovered Sandra Fluke she is, in reality, a 30 year old long time liberal activist who enrolled at Georgetown with the express purpose of fighting for the school to pay for students' birth control. She has been pushing for mandated coverage of contraceptives at Georgetown for at least three years according to the Washington Post.
However, as I discovered today, birth control is not all that Ms. Fluke believes private health insurance must cover.
She also, apparently, believes that it is discrimination deserving of legal action if "gender reassignment" surgeries are not covered by employer provided health insurance.
She makes these views clear in an article she co-edited with Karen Hu in the Georgetown Journal of Gender and the Law.
The title of the article, which can be purchased in full here, is Employment Discrimination Against LGBTQ Persons and was published in the Journal's 2011 Annual Review.
I have posted a transcript of the section I will be quoting from here. In a subsection of the article entitled "Employment Discrimination in Provision of Employment Benefits" starting on page 635 of the review Sandra Fluke and her co-editor describe two forms of discrimination in benefits they believe LGBTQ individuals face in the work place:
"Discrimination typically takes two forms: first, direct discrimination limiting access to benefits specifically needed by LGBTQ persons, and secondly, the unavailability of family-related benefits to LGBTQ families."

Imagine the trouble elRushbo would have gotten into if he had known this last Wednesday.
Fluke Argued for mandatory overage of sec change surgery!
“Transgender persons wishing to undergo the gender reassignment process frequently face heterosexist employer health insurance policies that label the surgery as cosmetic or medically unnecessary and therefore uncovered.”
Thanks Rush...Thanks all you lefties...Now we know a little bit more about what you're up to.
Pssst....A Dem Operative is a political prostitute.
What, she wants an Addadicktome? Well that would take care of any need for BC.
So, I’m wondering....how much do addadictomies or lopitophomies cost?
Right. Why does a lesbo need birth control?
How come no guys have come forward, saying they’ve slept with Ms. Fluke??
*looks at a photo of her*
I withdraw my question...

How come no gals have come forward, saying they’ve slept with Mr. Obama??

After doing some web research a LOT more than 3K unless you go to a cheap ass “surgeon” in Thailand.
I did a bit of my own research. Seems it might cost betwee25 - 50K for a woman to go male. Double it if you’re a dude wanting to become a chick....much closer to 100K.
What a jerk to think a company should provide for this.
What the Fluke!
Please STOP THE PRESSES! What In Good God’s name is a Q??
LGBTQ??? I looked it up and it even can be LGBTQQ
The Q’s are either “Questioning” or “Queer” or both.
Pet Peve of mine is the gay rights movement jumped the shark when they included Bi-sexual (which does just mean being a slut unless there is a “bi gene”) and transexual (which is the result of a mental illness and involves disfiguring surgery with no scientific merit). But now if you are even questioning your sexuality there is a group for you. Plus there seems to be a need by some to include “queer”.
This crap has become outrageously bizarre.
“Please STOP THE PRESSES! What In Good Gods name is a Q??

The QQ are the common internet representation of whiners, as represented by people who want expensive surgery to mutilate their bodies but don’t want to pay for them.
