Mr. McGuire: Ben, I just want to say three words to you. Just three words.
Ben: Yes sir.
Mr. McGuire: Are you listening?
Ben: Yes sir I am.
Mr. McGuire: Penile inversion vaginoplasty.
Ben … Exactly how do you mean?
Mr. McGuire: There’s a great future in penile inversion vaginoplasty. And mastectomies, and cross-gender facial feminization. Think about it. Will you think about it?
That’s a bit of dialogue from my planned remake of “The Graduate.” I’m pretty sure there is no sounder career advice you could give a bright young male-identifying person in 2023.
Don’t believe me? Check out this Feb 1 Daily Caller article in which Laurel Duggan details the lobbying efforts of the The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) fighting various state bills outlawing child “gender affirming” (sex change) medical procedures. Mutilating kids is a go-go growth industry, and as long as the social contagion lasts, it will be big business.
It isn’t just lobbying. Duggan notes that the ASPS is all in with the trans craze on several levels. It has “encouraged the expansion of insurance coverage of the procedures and promoted cross-sex surgeries through conferences, social media posts and its website,” she writes.
And why not? Duggan writes that “The gender reassignment surgery market was valued at $1.9 billion in 2019 and is projected to rise to $5 billion by 2023, according to Grand View Research. To break it down, “Male-to female and female-to-male chest surgeries can cost up to about $10,000, genital surgeries cost about $25,000 and facial feminization surgeries can range from $20,000 to $50,000.”
Nice bread if you can make it..
“There is no question that financial rewards play a role in the adoption of gender affirming care. Hospitals and physicians generate substantial payments from insurers or self pay patients when children enter into the transition protocols,” Dr. Stanley Goldfarb, board chair of Do No Harm, a group opposed to divisive and discriminatory ideologies in healthcare, told the Daily Caller News Foundation.
It’s more than just the profit motive, though. Lefty groupthink plays a part.
“I think it’s clear that both money and ideology play a role in US medical organizations’ zeal for gender transition procedures for minors,” Dr. Jay Richards, a senior research fellow at the Devos Center who focuses on transgender issues, told the DCNF. “The good news is that financial incentives can work in the other direction too. Mounting lawsuits from detransitioners seeking justice could change this dynamic overnight.”
Well, ya buys your ticket, ya takes your chances. In the meantime, you can tool up to take advantage of the coming de-transitioning craze. Like a tattoo parlor that runs a tattoo removal business upstairs, somebody’s gotta get paid to undo the damage you did, why not you?
Penile inversion vaginoplasty. Think about it, Ben.
