Brown University Offers Real Change To The Student Body

February 8, 2013

I posted this story over at College Insurrection earlier tonight.

A fascinating development via The College Fix.

Brown University To Cover Student Sex Change Operations

The Brown Student Health Insurance Plan will cover 14 different sexual reassignment surgery procedures for students starting August, reports the Brown Daily Herald student newspaper.

The decision adds Brown to a small but growing list of universities paying for the procedure. Others include Cornell, Harvard, Stanford and Penn, according to the Human Rights Campaign.

“For female-to-male surgeries, the new coverage plan will include mastectomy, hysterectomy, salpingo-oophorectomy, vaginectomy, metoidioplasty, scrotoplasty, urethroplasty, placement of testicular prostheses (and) phalioplasty,” the Daily Herald reports. “For male-to-female surgeries, coverage will include orchiectomy, penectomy, vaginoplasty, clitoroplasty (and) labiaplasty.”

Is everyone aware that the unemployment rate for recent college grads is through the roof?

Good to know Brown is focused on the important issues.
