An inmate in Lackawanna County Prison in Pennsylvania was just granted a medical order that authorizes hormone therapy for his transgender condition. Since the he is in prison, taxpayers will be footing the bill for his science-and-biology-denial scheme.
The Scranton Times-Tribune reports that U.S. District Judge Robert D. Mariani issued an emergency order mandating that Steven Fritz, aka Sparkles Wilson, receive the hormone therapy based on the belief that he/she will suffer from “psychiatric trauma and physical harm if it is not provided.”
Edward Zaloga, D.O., owner of the prison’s medical provider, Correctional Care Inc., initially defied the order and sought an emergency stay of its enforcement. Zaloga maintained the treatment may have side effects that could harm Fritz, 44, of Scranton.
Mariani rejected the request for a stay Monday, saying Zaloga presented no medical evidence to support his claim. He scheduled a hearing for July 17 to give the prison and Fritz an opportunity to present evidence that will determine if the order will remain in effect.
Fritz/Wilson’s attorneys filed an Eighth Amendment lawsuit, claiming that their client would be subjected to cruel and unusual punishment if the hormone treatment was denied.
The lawsuit says Fritz had developed female features, including enlarged breasts. The deprivation of the hormones caused her body to revert back to a more masculine form, causing her mental anguish and physical harm. In addition to restoring treatment, the suit seeks more than $1 million in compensatory and punitive damages.
A federal judge has somehow agreed with this line of reasoning, and now other people will be forced to artificially “transition” this man into a “woman” at no expense to him/her.
The judge claimed that the prison’s medical provider did not give any medical evidence why Fritz/Wilson should be denied the hormone treatment.
I don’t know what other medical information is needed here; Fritz has the XY chromosomes in his DNA, and only by artificially pumping himself up with female hormones is he able to alter the appearance of his body.
The medical evidence is so blatantly obvious that only an intellectual could ignore or evade it (to slightly paraphrase Thomas Sowell on socialism).
If he actually were a woman, wouldn’t he be a woman without artificial treatment? Any rational person knows that men have XY chromosomes, and women have XX chromosomes. But we are living in the 21st century now folks, and gender is no longer determined by science, but by how mentally unstable one is.
This man needs mental help, treatment to deal with the chemical imbalance in his brain. Something is very wrong in his mind if he believes he is actually a woman when he is biologically a man.
Catering to this belief is abusive, destructive, and downright abominable. But the fact that the rest of us are being forced to pay for this kind of idiocy is beyond my comprehension.
