An offender in Nebraska is now suing his prison doctor for denying his sex change.

The offender, who was born male, has now changed his/her name to Riley Shadle, previously being known as Dillon. Shadle has told prison officials that he identifies as a female, going so far as to tell them that the likelihood of reoffending would be lower if the gender reassignment surgery was done. Shadle claims to have "known" she was different since age four, and says that should her surgery continue to be denied she will castrate herself. Shadle is quoted as saying that prior to prison, the procedure was time and cost prohibitive.

“But I have time now and have medical paid for while I’m here,” Shadle said.

The prison states that it provides, as required by law, "the community standard of medical care," and will not pay for extraordinary, elective procedures.

So there you have it, Nebraskans. A prisoner has decided that you should pay for them to have gender reassignment surgery because reasons.

Note: I did not detail what the prisoner is incarcerated for, and I did so intentionally. Though I don't imagine that will be left out of the thread, I thought I would at least make the attempt at starting off without it.

Well, you know the saying... You can't always get what you want. He can sue all he wants. That's his legal right.

He may get what he wants, though...

Unfortunately, transgender conditions are among the rest of medical issues that can be exploited or misdiagnosed. I actually do think her crimes are relevant because it points to a far different reason behind her issues than the prenatal conditions normally surrounding gender dysphoria.

This is why years of therapy are utilized for transgender folks. It's to rule out any deeper problems that may be manifesting in this way. This person is sick and needs help (and of course prison). If she's suffering from gender issues on top of all that, it is a separate set of issues just like cancer would be.

As far as the tax payers paying for the medical costs? That all depends on what the doctors say. It is they who decides what is medically necessary and what is "elective". Perhaps they will determine that she is simply a sick individual looking for justifications for what she has done.

Besides, transgender or not, I fully support any sex offender opting to remove their male genitalia (or sex drive, in general) for whatever reason.

Let the pedo castrate himself. Hopefully he will bleed out.
Taxpayer money should never be used for this deviance. Especially for a convict.

Let him have whatever sex he wants in prison. I am sure that the inmates will have some wild ideas as to how they can satisfy his needs. Transformative surgery is not required.

Why leave out of the OP whether he is a pedophile? That certainly makes a difference. Not that I think all pedophiles or rapists should be castrated, I don't. ( Many think I should with my own personal childhood history and my own daughters experiences, but I do believe in forgiveness and hope they find help during their imprisonment.)

My actual question would be why does he really want the surgery? Does he have a verifiable history that shows that he has been gender confused? Does he think he will get a transfer to a women's prison and avoid the issues of abuse that is known to come down on men pedophiliacs in Men's prison? Is he actually thinking that he may get released earlier and would not be as suspect as a woman in future crimes?

So many questions, I think it all does come down to leave it up to the real psychologists/doctors to determine if the surgery will be a benefit or a detriment.

Sexual assault on a child under 12, eh.
Sure...give him/her the surgery...but let the child's parents perform the operation.

Because if the thread title was "pedophile wants sex change" then it would be page after page of people offering to castrate the offender.

I'm infinitely more interested in people's reactions and thoughts on the state, as in citizens, paying for the surgery than I am who knows how many comments like "I'll do it for free because pedo."

The OP left it out in order to have a discussion about genital reassignment surgery being paid for by the public for a prisoner without the crime making the discussion biased.

If it were bank robbery or tax evasion, I would agree with the OP. But her crimes are of the sort that a penis is pretty much required for and the issue is of her wanting to rid herself of that penis. That means her issues may not derive from good ole' fashioned gender dysphoria.

Heck, maybe she's a hardcore old timey Christian:

If your right eye makes you stumble, tear it out and throw it from you; for it is better for you to lose one of the parts of your body, than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. 30"If your right hand makes you stumble, cut it off and throw it from you; for it is better for you to lose one of the parts of your body, than for your whole body to go into hell.
(Matthew 5:30)

It is difficult to say what goes through the mind of a sex offender.

Screw "shim"....people like this should be shot. I am so sick of the "handout" crowd. Youre in prison....deal with it. Hopefully when this POS gets out someone in "shims" past takes care of it and buries it 6 feet under.

And yes, this is a direct result of the wussification of America....I wish the "Sticks and Stones: song was still used in schools...

Exactly correct, and thank you.

And that's where I come down on it. Does the offender want the wang gone so they can't use it anymore? Or because it's all a genuine issue for them?

I'm not the therapist involved so I don't know, obviously. But that was exactly my first question.

I understand. ...and, no, I don't think taxpayers owe him a damned thing, beyond a cell and 3 meals a day.
Forget castration...he should've been sentenced to death.

I disagree with paying for anything related to a criminal that is incarcerated. A sex change....this person can do it themselves. Sorry, a pedo I have zero tolerance for....hopefully someone drops old tires over this POS and lights them up.

Why would you not include what he was convicted of??

I could see if it was grand larceny or drug related charges. But HE is a PEDOPHILE!

A convicted child sex offender is accusing the state prison system of wrongfully denying access to hormone therapy to begin a sex change.


Dillon Shadle originally faced 62 felony child-related sex crimes.


Shadle pleaded guilty and was convicted of first-degree sexual assault of a child younger than 12, possession of child pornography and two counts of visual depiction of sexually explicit conduct.


Shadle was sentenced to 37 years to 66 years in prison, according to the Corrections Department. Under state sentencing guidelines, she will be first eligible for parole in 2043, state records show.


What a #en twisted world we live in. He is a convicted pedophile, and now blames his actions on being unable to have his reassignment surgery??
But now, since he has nothing but time on his hands, because he sexually abused a CHILD under the age of 12, he feels he is entitled to tax payer funded government, welfare, reassignment surgery.

Cry me a # river. The day he sexually abused a "child under 12" is the day he lost ANY # entitlements.

The only thing he should be entitled to is worrying on a daily bases if he will survive the abuse KNOWN to be given to CHILD rapists at the hands of HIS fellow convicts.

The fact that there is ANYTHING to debate here is only proof of how #ing screwed our society is.

Not the same at all. Gender reassignment is completely different. Diabetes and Asthma you can die from and are legitimate medical concerns. My thought is, if you commit a crime you forfeit your ability to ask for something like this.

I am a hardliner....

Maybe a different case under different circumstances would have had a better chance of you receiving the desired responses.

As the OP stands it is an absurd, #ed up question that received appropriate responses.
