  • Prisoner wants MA. to pay gender change

    Gotta love our prisons system

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

    A psychiatrist testified Tuesday that he believes Robert Kosilek _ who now goes by Michelle _ will commit suicide if state corrections officials refuse to allow the surgery and Kosilek is unable to complete the transformation into a woman.


    Kosilek, 57, was convicted of strangling his wife, Cheryl, in 1990.
    So why should the state pay for this, when a free man would have to pay for this out of his own pocket.
    that sounds like a good idea trooper.

    Wow, I know prison changes you, but can you say one too many dropped bars of soap?

      But if this goes through, would that transfere him/her to a all female prison?

        Doubtful, but the frequency with which "natural woman" could be heard drifting out of the shower area would skyrocket.

            I will foot the bill for a razor blade to have his sexuality altered. I'm sure they could find an adequately qualified inmate to perform the procedure.

                Well since the Army paid to have female soldiers get breast enhancement surgery why would this be any different?

                  The female soldiers hadn't been convicted of a crime and instead were taking advantage of a perk.

                    Oh yeah, it sure will. Maybe not on the first run, but certainly on appeal. Massachusetts politics will go through the motions, but in the end, it will probably happen.

                      I can't believe this is even being considered. So what if the guy's suicidal? He's in prison for pete's sake. Whiskey's right though lol, it'll get approved.

                        And who doesn't like that kind of perk?
