Transgender Serial Killer Who Took Selfie in Dress of Murder Victim Will Seek Gender Surgery on Release | Women Are Human

AU — New South Wales. A serial killer who photographed himself wearing the dress of the fiancée he had just bludgeoned to death is due for release into society. The killer, who began referring to himself in the feminine during his prison stay, is expecting to receive taxpayer-funded gender-affirming plastic surgery following release.
Reginald Arthurell has served 23 years of the 24-year sentence he was handed after murdering 54-year-old Venet Raylee Mulhall in 1995.

Mr Arthurell was an inmate with two manslaughter convictions on his record when, through letters, he charmed Ms Mulhall, a devout Christian serving in the Prison Fellowship. The convict was baptized in prison after claiming he had found God due to Ms Mulhall’s influence. A divorced mother of four, Ms Mulhall was five years Mr Arthurell’s senior, with a face left permanently paralyzed and disfigured by an operation to remove a brain tumor. She helped Mr Arthurell secure parole, agreeing to have him released into her care.

  1. I live in the same city as this person. Gender affirmation surgeries aren’t covered here. Depending on the type of surgery, it is usually only available through the private health care system. There are minimal to no Medicare rebates for gender affirmation surgeries.
    Most private insurers won’t help with surgery fees or anaesthesia either – they do cover hospital fees if you have the right cover.
    I consider the tone of this article when discussing surgery to be interesting, considering it was obviously written by someone with no understanding of transgender healthcare in Australia (let alone the specific state and city where this person resides).
    It’s almost like you make up whatever shitty lies you want to feed people, to vilify the transgender community for the actions of one person. I suppose the transgender people could do the same considering the vast majority of serial killer are cisgender.

    1. To quote an Australian government website: Gender confirmation surgery can be very expensive — up to about $30,000, depending on which procedures you need. This includes the surgeon’s and anaesthetist’s fees, specialist visits, hospital costs, counselling and hormone therapy.

      Many of these costs are covered by Medicare as long as you have a referral. You can check which procedures are covered by Medicare at MBS Online. However, because the surgery is usually performed privately in Australia, you can expect to pay a gap (when the doctor charges more than Medicare pays).See https://www.healthdirect.gov.au/gender-confirmation-surgery
