    One is under the impression that trans people in Oz and the UK are able to receive government assistance for their on going medical treatment to trans, is because it's classed as a mental health issue, thus not elective surgery. A change to the classification in these countries may mean that these people will have to start to pay for their own medical procedures and treatment and not the tax payers.

    Do they really want this responsibility?

    I would have assumed it would be elective surgery just like having a breast enlargement or facelift?
