I think this is the most thoroughly sound evidence of a completely and entirely f******d up world I've ever seen. It's short, and in order to appreciate the full extent of the .....f*****d-up-ness, you have to get to the last paragraph. Noah should have never listened to God. Massachusetts Convict Wants Court To Pay For Sex Change Operation June 1, 2006 8:00 a.m. EST Nidhi Sharma - All Headline News Contributor New York, NY (AHN) - Robert Kosilek - a convicted killer serving the sentence for killing his wife wants the Massachusetts Department of Corrections to pay for a sex-change operation as a treatment for medical condition. Claiming that hormone and other treatments didn't work, 57-year-old Kosilek, who now calls herself Michelle, petitioned for the surgery in 2002, which was denied by the judge, did in fact get female hormone treatment and laser hair removal services authorized. Though the treatment resulted in larger breasts and other changes, Kosilek says she needs the full change and is back in court, again seeking to have the operation. A psychiatrist is quoted by UPI news as saying that Kosilek will commit suicide without the surgery, as [he] believes himself to be a woman trapped in a man's body. However, the prison officials worry that if Kosilek undergoes the operation, he will end up becoming the target for assault by all-male prison where he's serving his sentence. The trial that begin on Tuesday is expected to last as long as two weeks.
