An interesting study released today by the Palm Center at the University of California, Santa Barbara, shows that transgender veterans face being turned away by Veterans Administration hospitals and medical facilities as well as facing other forms of discrimination. The study, based on a survey conducted by the Transgender American Veterans Association, is the first of its kind, according to TAVA. Participating in the survey were 827 U.S. military veterans and active-duty personnel. "Now we have proof" of discrimination, said Monica Helms of Atlanta, president of TAVA. "We want the right people to see this and we don't want it to be ignored." To read the entire survey, click here.

I personally know 3 Trans Vets who have had to fight for several years just to get minimal help for anything and everything.

The only hospitals transgender people shouldn't be turned away from are psychiatric hospitals.

These people need serious help!

They need help, but not the kind you are thinking of.

For your information, transgender people receive extensive psychiatric evaluations before any medical professional will treat them physically. They are undoubtedly far more in-touch with their desires, fears, and prejudices than the average person.

If you were as in-touch with your own inner being, you might cease displaying your ignorance, arrogance, and meanness.

O self-righteous_1: Do you really think that projecting sins onto others will fool your omniscient Father? Is that how you plan to get into Heaven: telling lies about your fellow man?

Methinks you need a new plan and some serious psychological help.
