The very thought of this surgery is rather disturbing.

They’re hard to find, but you can see websites showing how they do “normal” gender reassignment surgeries. It’s haaardcore. The aftercare for people with a neovagina is also… ongoing.

BC United leader says solution to illicit drugs in hospitals is 'just say no'

 

Kevin Falcon says he would ban open drug use in hospitals
 
 
 
 
Falcon said nurses have too much to do already without “potentially violent, unstable patients, high on who knows what kind of drugs” threatening their safety.
 

B.C. Health Minister Adrian Dix, in Vancouver on Friday, called Falcon’s five-minute ­solution “disrespectful to the most vulnerable people we work with and to the health ­professionals who’ve devoted their lives to helping them.”

 

Dix said all manner of people seek treatment in hospital and that presents real challenges.

 

“It’s not like Rogers Arena, if some fan is disorderly, you send them home,” said Dix. “This is a hospital, and our health care staff is absolutely committed to their patients, all of their patients.”

 

The health minister said he doesn’t believe “the solution to this is putting critically ill ­people on the street” and while Falcon may suggest that for political points, Dix said he doesn’t believe that’s what the people of B.C. or nurses or doctors or heath-care workers want.

The problem is now that we’re using same words with different definitions.

Dix says “health care” but he means “harm reduction” ie, giving free, hard drugs to addicts.

Falcon says “health care” but he means actually caring for people’s health, ie. getting addicts off drugs, or at least protecting everyone else in the hospital from addicts.

For goodness sake, I have to take my 1 year old baby to VGH for a sedated EEG later this month. Will I have to dodge junkies on my way in / throughout the hospital? Tell me how that increases “health care” for my baby girl who isn’t a drug addict.

It lets her get an early look, first-hand at the normalization of illicit drug use.

 

Lessens the shocks for later in life.
