Working Life: Working in trans health


The question is "Should people who believe their gender does not match their birth sex be eligible for taxpayer funded treatment to match their sex to their chosen gender?" Hw far does this go? What stage do we need get people to where they are happy? Just a new penis/vagina? Or a fake Adams apple? Do we insist they get their fair amount of back hair?And if not, is this to be free for those men who don't want it as they want to feel a bit more womanly by having it removed? And please don't use the insult that those who are making reasonable debate about a very contentious issue of being homophobic. The two issues are chalk and cheese.
