Transsexual Freakazoids Sue Plastic Surgeon in Canadian Kangaroo Court

Canada's human rights tribunals are moonbattery's answer to the Spanish Inquisition. Though they inspire disgust and incredulous laughter rather than terror, they are no less authoritarian. Their objective is to reduce Canada to a cross between the Soviet Union and an early John Waters movie.

The Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario has been hearing a case apparently seen by some as "a landmark test of transsexuals' access to medical care." Two transsexuals brought up plastic surgeon Robert Stubbs on human rights violations for refusing to perform labiaplasty and breast augmentation on them as if they were women. They want money for the pain and suffering he inflicted by turning them down.

The case was clearly frivolous. Stubbs

had no surgical experience with transsexuals. The chest structure and post-operative genitals of transsexuals are not the same as those of biological women, and thus, the complainants' transsexual status was medically relevant.

However, plaintiffs have nothing to lose in Canada's kangaroo human rights courts:

The complainants get a free lawyer from the human-rights tribunal to argue their case.

In contrast:

[T]he respondent is on the hook for his own legal bill. Dr. Stubbs's medical insurance fund is picking up the tab for his lawyer, who's probably billing $500 an hour.

The trannies' case fell apart when one of them admitted he didn't think Stubbs should be forced to perform surgery for which he isn't qualified. However, serious allegations that Stubbs was rude have yet to be adjudicated.

Already there's been a positive outcome for the plaintiffs. One reports that he's been inspired to become a full-time activist, having taken a taxpayer-funded job "investigating the health status of the transsexual population." Also, the two of them have started a small business that is paid by large companies to do "diversity awareness training" on transgender issues.

Why would any corporation spend money on this sickening lunacy? Canada's human rights commissions compel them to.

If only Divine were still around to preside over the authoritarian freak show that used to be Canada.

I can't help but laugh at this story. I know it's so stupid, but since it's Canada and I don't care what they subject themselves to it is hilarious.

Can anyone tell me more about the Canadian Human Rights Council? For instance, if I found a summons in my mailbox from this 'council' and, after chuckling to myself as I read it, decided to place it in File 13, what would happen to me? Basically, what if someone refuses to acknowledge the legitimacy of the CHRC?

Yes, why should these people expect health care free from the state? And if he tells them to get the hell out of his office because he doesn't want to serve their kind, so what? Capitalism means not having to give a damn any more. Thank God we live in the US of A.

Are you suggestion (Sarcasticly) the this doctor WHO ADMITS THAT HE IS UNQUALIFIED TO DO THE WORK, should have put them under the knife, POSSIBLY RISKING MUTILATION OR OTHER COMPLICATIONS?
I'm just asking.
