Australia: Defence spends $640k on sex changes

Remind me again: what’s the military for?

We also have a “lack of skill on trans issues”, according to  RAAF reservist Group Captain McGregor, who writes for gay and lesbian journal, the Star Observer, as the nation went back to work after Australia Day celebrations.

Defence spends $640k on sex changes

Transgender senior military officer Cate McGregor: “Abbott deserves more credit for acceptance”

TAXPAYERS spent $648,000 over 30 months for sex change and breast enhancement procedures for serving members of the Australian Defence Force (ADF).

This included 13 cases of gender dysphoria (gender identity disorder) including 10 from male to female and 15 breast enhancements between November 2012 and April this year.

The bill does not include pharmaceuticals issued by Defence.

The Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) led the way with six members undergoing gender identity treatment and eight breast enhancements.

Next was Army with five gender cases and four breast procedures and finally the Royal Australian Navy (RAN) with just two and three respectively.

The circumstances leading to the various surgical procedures is not known.

All members of the ADF receive free medical services as part of their service contract.

Health care for military personnel costs taxpayers about $300 million a year.

Defence said that not all 13 of the gender dysphoria cases had undergone surgery.

“Management of gender dysphoria can be complex and gender reassignment surgery is not performed in all cases,” it said in answer to questions from News Corp.

“Defence pays for some but not all aspects of the management of gender dysphoria, including surgery.

“Equity with Medicare is the guiding principle for considering health care entitlements at public expense for Defence members. These general principles also apply in the management of gender dysphoria.”

The total bill for the gender patients, including surgery, was $395,000 or about $30,000 per head.

‘One of the most trans-friendly environments available in Australia’ … RAAF Group Captain Cate McGregor with Prime Minister Tony Abbott.

Probably the best known member of the ADF who has undergone gender reassignment is RAAF Group Captain Cate McGregor, who was formerly speechwriter to the Chief of Army Lieutenant Colonel Malcolm McGregor.

McGregor has not benefited in any way from Defence spending on gender identity disorders.

Three years ago, at the age of 55, McGregor began the transformation process.

McGregor has received some support, namely mental health and pharmaceutical help, but has had no surgery of any description – much less at public expense.

She has not yet had a sex change operation. When she does, she stresses it will be funded independently with no taxpayer assistance.

The former Labor and Liberal staffer and friend of Prime Minister Tony Abbott told ABC Radio that while the army adapted slowly to the issue of transgenderism, it implemented policies and then “excelled”.

“It [the army] is probably one of the most trans-friendly environments available in Australia,” Ms McGregor said.

Defence was unable to say how many of the breast enhancement procedures involved cancer patients and the bill for the 15 cases was $253,000 or about $17,000 each.

In 2012 the total cost of all plastic surgery procedures in the ADF was $3.5 million for 1500 cases or $2300 each. This figure includes breast enhancement and reduction cases as well as tummy tucks, nose jobs and liposuction.

Defence said such procedures were only approved for compelling psychological or psychiatric reasons.

There are plenty of activists making a name for themselves in women’s issues.

Only one man is responsible for the soldiers of the Australian Army.

The measure of a general’s service is the regard he’s held in by his soldiers.   They need not love him, some may hate him, but to be effective, he must hold their respect and he must lead them.  And they must know his primary concern is for them.

This man’s interests were elsewhere.

For that, his name will live in infamy.

David Morrison – Australia must change to suit Muslims. On Muslim problems with West, “that’s OK”. 

Australian of the year David Morrison says:

  • We discriminate against Muslims so we must change.
  • Islam has problems with us “but that’s OK”.

Morrison has found love with the luvvies.   Thank God he won’t be leading our warriors into battle, not that he ever did.

  1. Can anyone tell me how “Gender Identity Treatment” for these sexually confused losers is helping in the defence of our country?
    We are having our tax dollars wasted on every tin pot, bleeding hearted minority who thinks it is up to the rest of us to support their confused or damaged lives! Some people should really take a reality check and wake up to themselves. If its not phoney refugees or indigenous pink spotted tree frogs with a limp, they all seem to think we owe them something because they have some type of claim. God this country needs some leadership with backbone.

  2. Do we pay for the head bandages of the enemy within, that millitant fundamentalist sunni muslima who is an “officer” GAK in the AUSTRALIAN navy? Do we pay for her HALAL feeds? Did we pay for the anti-Australian, anti-semitic tweets she made?

    And lastly: will WE have to pay for the impending sex change of the “Australian of the Year”, or will he just be happy with dressing up in a Burka?


    This is How Criminals Think.

    Since criminals, by definition, choose to always attack everyone else first, they learn to disguise their alibis as secondary, counter-attacks by blaming their victims with carefully-crafted excuses:

    The criminals’ subjective double-standards excuses start off with basic, slanderous “paranoia:”


    “SINCE you COULD be planning to attack me first, so you ARE planning to attack me first, SO I MUST (“pre-emptively, defensively”) attack you first, to prevent it; and all for your own good of course!

    This habitual choice of preferring the replacement of the potential dynamics of cause-and-effect real life with a static, idolatrous scenario where the criminal is always the victim, is know as psychopathy (thought-killing). And it’s done to cancel ancilliary pain caused by the fear of it, BY causing the very same, worst-case scenario problems which cause the pain they fear the most.

    Our societal masochism is a result of criminals advising everyone to “ACT LIKE A VICTIM!” in order to remain irresponsibly wrong.

    This defeatist stance is even enforced by the police and so-called “mental health (illness)” establishment industry – victimology enforcement – and of course also by the indoctrinated excuse-making idolatry of the “SOCIAL JUSTICE WARRIORS:”

    i.e: “If we don’t rush in first, then some other fools will beat us to it!”

    It’s simple, cowardly, treasonous masochism: (which all liberals are afflicted by) – when they see something they fear, their immediate response is to Submit to it:

    “We have to let the violent criminals do what they want to us, or else they’ll do what they want to us anyway!”

    In this way, they hope to avoid the fear of pain, by pre-emptively inflicting that pain on themselves (thus cancelling the auxiliary pain caused by the fear)! See?

    So masochists will always try to pretend to be able to “control” their fears, BY causing those very same, worst-case scenario problems (like, by inviting in hordes of barbaric savages whom they KNOW want to murder us all, and by slandering those innocent people who don’t want to be murdered as “racists!”) which cause the pains they fear the most.

    Bottom line?


    Exactly “like” islam itself!


    As Christopher Cantwell recently noted:

    “Today, left wing influence is threatening our very existence.

    Subsidized mass immigration displaces libertarianism’s core demographic with socialists, communists, and theocrats. Public education is dumbing down the populace. The welfare state is destroying the family unit. Political correctness not only threatens “free speech”, it removes entire categories of information from observation in political discourse and scientific inquiry. Feminism and gender confusion is subsidized and promoted, along with birth control and abortion, causing more familial disconnect, declining birthrates, and demographic decline.”

    … and:

    “Drug use, promiscuity, feminism, homosexuality, racial and cultural diversity are all social negatives which would, and for many centuries were, discouraged by the market. Promoting these behaviors as virtuous is a consequence of liberal economic policies and general societal degradation brought upon us by said policies. We are not freeing ourselves by smoking marijuana and letting other guys fuck our girlfriends, we are in fact responding to the stimuli of our enslavement, and helping to further perpetuate it. When leftists scream “racist” or “sexist” or “homophobe” at their opponents, it doesn’t make a spec of difference whether or not they are explicitly endorsing the State taking action against the people they hurl these epithets at. They are repeating government propaganda, the aim of which is to outlaw the discrimination which has always served as a market deterrent to degenerate behavior and cultural decline.

    They want unchecked debauchery, irresponsibility, and reality detachment, because this makes for a more easily ruled civilization. If Bruce Jenner can become a woman, or Rachel Dolezal can become black, then the concept that human beings have a nature is undermined. Popular opinion and government decrees can take the place of obvious truths, and once one is willing to accept that sort of thought process, communism is not far off. After all, if human beings have no nature, then there are no economic laws aside from those set by the State.”

    And this is, as Bob Livingstone put it, deliberate:

    “By design, America and the West are being destroyed by the political and pundit class on behalf of the globalists. The globalists’ goal is to eliminate borders; and to do this they intend to swarm all nations with people of other races, from other cultures, nationalities and even religions, so that people of civilized and established nations lose their cultural and nationalist identities and become homogenized. The argument can then be made that, since a nation now has no cultural or racial identity, borders are irrelevant.

    In a world without borders, people become world citizens. World citizens need world government.”

    And it’s not only the government, either: the enemedia and so-called “education system” are also complicit – they serve the same globalist corporazi masters the politicians do.

    A great way to control people is to convince them they can’t manage their own affairs.

    Even better is to convince them they’re only potentially dangerous (hateful racist bigots) mistakes who shouldn’t even think about trying to defend them selves because by doing so they are guaranteed to always hurt innocent others.

    Best of all is to convince them they are not only all helpless victims, but to be proudly competitive in endorsing victim status – which is exactly what today’s feral “Social Justice Warriors” (SJWs) are all about!

    Which is both how and why the enemedia endlessly shames us all as potential racists all the time, and insists we import hordes of swarthy savages who we know want to murder and enslave us, to make up for it.

    Cantwell noted further that “Democratic governments move in a singular direction, leftward. They have no choice but to do that because popular lies defeat uncomfortable truths in popular elections. Bribing voters, dumbing down the electorate, and importing more stupid people to vote are features of democracy, not malfunctions.”

    Yes, exactly – like this guy said long ago:

    “A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government.

    A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy…”
