Brown University to Pay for Studentsí Sex Change Surgeries
Universal Judeo-Christian News ^ | 2/23/13 | Heather clark

A university located in one of the most historical cities in America and founded as a Baptist institution has announced that it plans to begin covering the costs of the sex change operations of its students.

Brown University in Providence, a city founded by Roger Williams as a refuge for those who were persecuted for their faith, states that its student health insurance plan will now cover “sexual reassignment surgeries” and 14 types of treatments for students desiring to switch genders. It notes that procedures normally cost up to $50,000 per person, and therefore, can be out of reach for young adults.

“We identified this as an important benefit for students to have access to,” Jeanne Hebert, director of the university’s insurance services, told the student newspaper The Brown Daily Herald.

The university is joining approximately 35 other colleges and universities across the country who also provide some form of insurance coverage for sexual treatments, whether hormone therapy or major surgery. Other schools include Harvard, Stanford, Cornell and Yale.

Reaction to the announcement has been mixed.

Noah Lupica, who underwent a sex change operation as a teenager, told the school newspaper that “the fact that Brown is now offering these surgeries is life-saving.”

“Cisgendered people — ordinarily, most people — don’t even think about how limiting it can be to not feel comfortable in their own skin,” he said, referring to those who have not altered their birth gender.

“God help us. I guess this is what moral collapse looks like,” commented one concerned reader, who remained anonymous. “Then good riddance to your ‘morality,’” replied another identified as KN.

Some students said that their chief concern was that other students would have to pay for the procedures.

“I don’t think the issue here is the procedure itself; it’s that other students are paying for this procedure to happen. Even if the APA deems this a medical necessity, what makes it so immediate and pressing that the entire Brown student body has to subside this during the 4 years we have at college?” wrote one student by the screen name of Yolo. “I think this is really just an issue of where our money is going. Also, like a lot of people, I’m worried some people might come to Brown to abuse this privilege — and on my dime.”

To think that Brown University was America's first graduate seminary.

Every day brings new revelations that we are most assuredly seeing the death of America taking place before our very eyes.

I don’t know if this fits your description of what fits in the category of your homeschooling ping, but I thought you might want to know.

Wow - I’ve lived 57 years and never knew that I was cis-freaking-gendered until today!

You obviously attended school long before this debilitating disease was discovered. To bad, otherwise you too could have received a reassignment correction to make your life more complete. < / s>

Like your web site...

I too wish they would just move on down the road. On down the road to hell that is, because that’s where they belong.

Add another university to the list of those who will be sued in the future for allowing this monstrosity to permanently ruin young lives.

Time to strike Brown University out of your estate distribution plan.

(Unless you want your money wasted $50,000 at a time by its being given to greedy, unprincipled “doctors” to cut off confused little boys’ playthings....)

So will they ALSO be funding breast enlargement/reduction and penis enlargement surgeries for heterosexuals?

Or is it only offered to the GBLTXYZSTUPID community?

Yes, we have a long list of universities that are part and partial to the destruction of our children.

Remember, Khrushchev or Stalin said that we do not have to defeat you on the battlefield.

We will have your children give us America.

Well, welcome to future. Stalin is dancing the jig in hell as his people are running Washington.

That is probably the one good thing about transgender operations. That person is forever sterile.
