    post you're referring to -- this one complaining that Jezebel was mean?
    I liked this response by El Mito:

    My worry lies (9+ / 0-)

    Not in if she gets or not HRT. Is if the correctional system has adequate professional support for someone transitioning. Did she get professional advice on the risks of doing this while incarcerated. Will she start at Men's correctional and then move to a women's one?

    About tax payers? since I believe in Universal Health Care... I don't mind a bit, but I would like her to go through a REAL professional support group fro transgender behind bars.

    Also the one that pointed out that even if her care cost 300 million, which it couldn't possibly, that would require the diarist to pitch in a whole dollar (not quite, since most kids don't pay taxes, and our population stats include children, but still -- damned good point.  The diarist was being petty and punitive.)
    Manning and all  prisoners, transgendered and otherwise, deserve full medical care.
