He made it clear in his past article that he was unwilling to part with his penis. At that point, he was claiming he was going to have "genital reconstruction surgery," but after numerous people pointed out that nothing was being reconstructed, he seems to have abandoned that false claim. Now, it is true that some transsexuals have an orchidectomy in advance of full SRS. They do this to reduce the amount of hormones they take. Mr. Sandeen has made it clear that this is the only surgery he plans to have.
Worse, he has made it clear that the reason he had this surgery is so he can perpetuate a fraud against the State of California in an attempt to change his birth certificate. Hopefully, someone will raise objections to this, and he will be blocked, and perhaps even prosecuted for perjury. For those who are interested the calendar for the San Diego court which will likely be hearing this case can be found here. Providing copies of Mr. Sandeen's blog posts to the court should prove interesting.
In his latest, and according to him, last post on the subject he makes the statement:
Quite a number of transsexual women believe vaginoplasties are a requirement to fully transition from man to woman. I believe instead that I was female before my orchiectomy, female afterwards, and female still should I ever have a vaginoplasty. Genital surgery is used by many transsexuals to affirm gender, but it doesn’t create male or female gender in the first place.No, all transsexual women believe vaginoplasties are a requirement to fully transition from man to woman. Women do not have penises. That is common sense for the vast majority of the human race. But not for the delusional extremists of the transgender movement. And no, it is clear that Mr. Sandeen has never been female in any sense, and will never be female since one cannot change one's gender by changing one's mind.
Mr. Sandeen served successfully, as a male, in the Navy for twenty years. No transsexual would be able to accomplish this. It is bad enough when someone has had a long, successful career as a male, with no significant problems, and then claims to be a transsexual. It is completely laughable when that career was in the military. Yes, women serve in the military, but they serve in a different environment than men. The culture is significantly different.
So, I, and I am sure many others, have to disagree when Mr. Sandeen says:
No, the correct pronoun remains "he." And hopefully, his fraud will be exposed in court, it will be shown that he has affirmed his gender as male.
So when y’all refer to me, the correct pronoun is she — I didn’t have that gender affirmation surgery for nothing, y’know?
