"It’s a lot of money,” VUMC Clinic for Transgender Health’s Dr. Shayne Sebold Taylor said at one Medicine Grand Rounds lecture, video reveals. “These surgeries make a lot of money.” Taylor noted that a “chest reconstruction” can bring in $40,000 per patient, and someone “just on routine hormone treatment, who I’m only seeing a few times a year, can bring in several thousand dollars … and actually makes money for the hospital.”

Part of me has to respect this piece of shit for her honesty. She's not pretending to care about trans people’s health like Sbtthytth Gallagher or Butcher Bowers. She straight up admitted that these people are just cash cows for the hospital to slaughter and dispose of like farm animals.

Citing the Philadelphia Center for Transgender Surgery, Taylor said vaginoplasty surgeries can generate $20,000, gushing that it “has to be an underestimate,” since hospital stay, anesthesia, post-op visits, and other add-ons are not included in the total. “And the female-to-male bottom surgeries, these are huge money makers,” the doctor continued, adding that such surgeries could bring in “up to $100,000” for the hospital. Some clinics are “entirely” “supported” financially by such phalloplasty surgeries, Taylor boasted. “These surgeries are labor intensive, there are a lot of follow-ups, they require a lot of our time, and they make money,” she emphasized. “They make money for the hospital.”

Why the fuck can't they find ways to monetize procedures people actually NEED!? There must be no shortage of homeless people who need medical care. Or people who need things like sinus surgeries or breast reductions or skin removal after weight loss but never got it because of the out of pocket cost. So many people can't get necessary health care. But we're wasting resources destroying the bodies of HEALTHY people for purely cosmetic outcomes. This makes me so angry!
