hot take: hrt, gender therapy and trans surgeries should be free
if cis people don’t have to pay to have a body that doesn’t make them dysphoric, neither should trans people
So by that logic does that mean that I should get anti-depressants and all the other pills for my mental issues for free because the people who don’t suffer from them don’t have to pay to have them?
And does that mean that corrective lenses should also be free, because people with good vision don’t need to pay to see clearly, and that devices to aid in mobility for people with limited mobility (from crutches to (practical) canes to wheelchairs to prosthetics) should also be free, because people who don’t have limited mobility don’t need to pay for them?
yes? why does everyone in the notes keep trying to come up with gotchas lmao everything to do with healthcare should be free
So who’s going to pay the doctors and nurses and all the other workers in the healthcare field to work for free? who’s going to pay for the equipment, the education, the hours?
Do you also get so upset thinking about who pays police officers, fire fighters and soldiers?
Or ICE or the Coastguard or Park Rangers.
I am still never going to not be confused by the concept of public services including healthcare being so alien to some folks.
I am from America and it makes. No. Sense. Especially ambulances costing money to use!!! You don’t get charged fees for calling other emergency vehicles! Why does this one cost??? There are some services/industries that should never be privately owned for profit. Like prisons and hospitals. These are services for the people and the community. It makes no sense that it is this way.
