Your tax dollars at work: Berkeley introduces sex change operations as an employee benefit

by editor on January 20, 2011

Many cities schedule orientation meetings for their new employees. But in the near future the liberal bastion of Berkeley, California may have to schedule re-orientation meetings. Sexual re-orientation, that is.

CNSnews.com reports on the ol’ switcheroo:

Berzerkeley, California: Now providing legal tender for the transgender

“While other cities are slashing employee benefits, Berkeley is slated to add one more: paying for sex-change operations,” the San Francisco Chronicle reported on Tuesday.

The Berkeley City Council was expected to vote Tuesday night on a proposal to reserve $20,000 annually for city employees’ gender-reassignment surgery, which is not covered by the city’s health insurance providers, the newspaper reported.

The benefit, to be distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis, would allow employees to collect the money before the operation.

And now, friends, you understand why the town is nicknamed Berzerkeley.

Heartbreak Update: The sex change surgery vote has been delayed. According to KTVU.com, “The Berkeley City Council Tuesday night postponed a vote on a staff proposal to appropriate $20,000 a year to pay for sex-change operations for city employees. Council members on Tuesday decided to delay a final decision on the issue until Feb. 15.” Stay tuned for the latest in transsexual news here at IHateTheMedia.com.

i think the rationale is that it’s a health related thing, that would typically be covered under the insurances of most employers. I mean, who cares as long as you don’t live in berkley?

Alex, You did’nt see my earlier post here? Again, just for you…

Berkely sets aside $20,000 for this idiocy…
That money runs out…
Berkley then goes to Sacramento to beg for more money…
Gov.Brown says he’ll take care of it…
Brown has the CA Congressional group try to get funding…
That funding gets slipped into an unrealted bill as earmark spending…
It gets approved, the President signs it…
American taxpayers, not Berkley, pay the bill…

…& this is not isolated. How many states are are looking at having the feds bail them out of because they don’t understand economics? Most of the blue states. California, Illinios, Michigan, & New York are just examples of how progressive assholes have destroyed these states & are now looking to Washington to pay for their mistakes. The answer should be no, they screwed themselves, & they should’nt be allowed to screw the taxpayers.

Ditto, danybhoy!

Didn’t 200 mayors just descend on DC begging for financial help? Jeez, in the good ol’ days, it was just one mayor asking for a handout to keep NYC from going bankrupt! Now they’re multiplying like rabbits. I think they’re trying to get a jump ahead of all the other municipalities and states that are sure to follow.

Thanks!

Beck was on this story about 2 or 3 years ago. He was poo-pooed, but it turns out he was miles ahead of the curve, again.

Umm, is penile inversion what happened to Schwarzenegger? I mean shortly after his ballot measures in 2005 were defeated he became a girl.

If Berzerkeley votes for it, I can’t wait to see the mass influx of future gender benders applying for jobs….THEN after the appropriate waiting period, ‘announce’ that they are unfulfilled,…blahblahblah…and must have a sex change.

Berkeley’s learning curve is rather slow. In the 80’s, they decided it would be ‘unfair and harassment’ to ban homeless people and panhandlers from the city. So, they did the only thing a logical-minded lib could do…they allowed it, embraced it and advertised it. I remember reading it at the time and wondering how long it would last.

Well, it lasted 10 years, as the residents were up in arms over all the homelessness, crimes and the deadbeats in the city parks, so then the City had what is generally known as An Epiphany and banned them.

Tool Town.

This is just one of the countless reasons why this once great state is flat broke and one of the many reasons I finally left. This treansgender operation at the expense of the taxpayer is old news if you’re from California. This stupid idea never got any traction at the State level, but that doesn’t keep these libtard communities, like Berkley, from trying to make it some kind of an entitlement which then requires some kind of an amedment to the state constitution.

All kidding aside, if The People’s Republic of Berkley, or any other city, wants to pay for these sorts of things, I don’t care. But here’s the problem.

1.Berkley says they want to pay for gender re-assignment surgury, & they want to put $20,000 aside for this.

2.Berkley quickley runs out of money, as it is a 1st come, 1st serve deal. But my guess is that those who can’t get funding for their operations will raise a stink, & more money will be needed.

3.Berkley will give in, & make more money avaible. They will ask Sacramento for help in funding this program. My guess is the old/now new Governor Jerry Brown will find the money.

4.Berkley is in the hole financially, & can’t afford to do this. But neither is the state of California, so their Congressional group will attempt to get the Feds to flip the bill. Probably through the earmark process.

So because some confused leftist who has been told his/her entire life that they are entitled to everything in our “wants = needs = rights” society preached in the Bay Area, & since he/she can’t afford it, & neither can Berkley or California, American taxpayers who don’t have a say, will be forced to pay. The taxpayers in the rest of the nation need to cross their arms, & say NO. If those in California throw a fit & threaten to burn their state to the ground if we don’t meet their demands, stand back & let it burn.

They should be mandatory until the correct gender balance is achieved in each occupation at the school.

Only problem with this is when the federales bail out California-some of that money will go to berkeley-and you, me, them, everybody(blues brother’s reference) will have kicked in for some adadicktome operations! I love it. They saw the G coming from 500000 miles away!

Isn’t it called FOOKED after a sex change anyway?

Seriously…we should be allowed to drop some F-bombs like Hillary Clinton did while in the White House…when commenting on this story.

Well, as long as they don’t pay for this with my tax dollars.

Besides with this “first-come, first-serve” approach you know that a specific employee must be the one wanting a sex change operation. Steve over in the HR department really feels like a Stephanie, so why not give him the 20G he needs to get it done. And if more than one person wanted to use this money and was denied, well that wouldn’t be fair. But they would have nipped that in the butt by opening this up to more than 1 person in the original planning stage.

Whatever the case is, just please keep it on the west coast guys.

The wang should be preserved and put in the museum of socialism the next government will establish after the revolution.

The wang is not removed in many cases. It is sliced lengthwise and flipped inward to be made an “innie” instead of an “outie.” It’s called a penile inversion.

Penile inversion. I’ve added that to my internal dictionary of terms I hope to never hear applied to myself.

Although, now that I think about, I remember a cold winter day back in 1973…

OMG!!!! That is disgusting!

I don’t care… you can call me a hater and a “racist” against transgendered people all you want, but that is absolutely disgusting and unnatural and these people need to get their heads straight (no pun intended).

Gross!
