    I have known a few females that had breast reductions due to the issues their breast size was causing on their backs. That is different than a breast enhancement for self esteem, correct?

    Reductions i know of were done for skin reasons (the bigger they are, the more skin issues you can get, including streaching of your back skin from them bouncing up and down).. So i can see that.

    And yes i know others in fed prisons have received GID treatments. BUT those are civilian fed prisons.

    I could not disagree with you more! Boob jobs are a wonderful thing! They not only make the recipient feel good about themselves they also spread joy and happiness to many others!

    I know I am always in a great mood every time I encounter a pair of surgically enhanced breasts. This truly is one of modern medicines greatest gifts to humanity.

    I have long been a strong advocate of breast enhancements and I wish more people would speak favorably of them.

    I strongly suggest that you reevaluate your opinion on this; trust me, they are truly a wonderful thing.

    I am not a fan of fake boobs either, but have nothing against them, unless they are on a dude who wants to look like a lady.

    It was rhetorical excess from people that specialize in :fish2 and :bsflag:

    Would you be equally happy with a guy getting a dick job?

    Also, we don't pay for active duty people to get their sex change, especially when deployed. SO why should we be required to pay for manning's treatment now he has been DISHONORABLY discharged?

    Let’s review!

    Now to your question:

    I’m not sure what a “dick job” is but I’m certain that I would not be filled with the same joy and happiness as I am upon encountering a breast enhancement recipient.

    As for young Bradley, why do you seem so convinced that the government is going to foot the bill for his treatments?

    I’m not for it and I’m not even sure it is likely to happen.

    As for breast enhancements for females, I think you should be less uptight on that issue. They really are one of modern medicines greatest gifts to humanity.

    A) its elective (not required) so imo like me wanting lipo, I have to foot the bill, not big daddy govt.
    B) The AF already said that gender reassignment/hormone treatment is NOT something covered
    C) his ass has been dishonorably discharged. So why should he get a damn thing from uncle sam?

    Why? Boobs are boobs. But that does not mean i should be ok with having someones tit job get it on my dime (Taxes) while on the same token disallowing a guy to get a dick job.
