Court says convicted murderer has a right to sex change operation
A taxpayer-funded sex change operation, of course.
According to the Boston Globe:
A federal appeals court in Boston today upheld a judge’s ruling that an inmate convicted of murder is entitled to a sex change operation as treatment for her severe gender identity disorder.
“Having carefully considered the relevant law and the extensive factual record, we affirm the judgment of the district court,” a three-judge panel of the First US Circuit Court of Appeals wrote, in a ruling that was a first of its kind.
The court issued its ruling in the case of convicted wife killer Michelle L. Kosilek. As a man, Robert Kosilek, he strangled his wife, Cheryl, in Mansfield in 1990 and dumped her body in a car at a mall in North Attleoborough.
Seems like a charming, er, fellow. As Weasel Zippers put it, “Note how the PC-obsessed Boston Globe refers to convicted murderer: Robert Kosilek as ‘her,’ yeah, he still has a penis, so no, that’s a dude.”
