Idaho is being forced to pay a child rapist $2.5 million in dispute over transgender surgery
· · Oct 19, 2022 ·

This is no "slippery slope." Increasingly there's no slope, no slipping at all – we're just in freefall mode:

A violent sex offender has been awarded more than $2.5 million in legal fees after suing the state for withholding "gender affirming care" while he was incarcerated for sexually abusing a 15-year-old boy.

Adree Edmo, formerly known as Mason Edmo, first launched a lawsuit against the state of Idaho and the state department of correction's medical provider, Corizon Correctional Healthcare, in 2017 after being denied "gender" surgeries.

In the suit, Edmo had sought access to a legal name change, "gender appropriate" clothing, and "gender affirming" surgeries. Edmo, who was housed in a male prison at the time, also demanded a transfer to a women's facility.

Edmo ultimately received his surgery, was transferred to a women's prison, and was eventually released in 2021. Now, he's secured a gargantuan award over the dispute:

On Monday, Judge Winmill awarded Edmo roughly $2.5 million in legal fees and court expenses. Edmo was represented in his case by seven different attorneys, including lawyers from the National Center for Lesbian Rights. Their fees must now be paid by Corizon Correctional Healthcare under a separate agreement with the state.

So a man raped a child, got a free sick surgery from the state, and pulled down a $2.5 million payday to boot.

Be sure to give long, sustained applause to the transgender activists who made this possible!
