Is having a vagina purely a cosmetic thing to you? Is having a penis purely a cosmetic thing to your significant other (if that person is a male)?
I doubt many would say yes. Yet many say gender reassignment surgery is purely cosmetic. But the main purpose of GRS for many is to have either a penis or vagina. So why is it purely cosmetic for transgender people only?

It's not a medically necessary procedure.

I don't know that I would consider it a cosmetic surgery, but I do consider it an elective surgery. I agree that it's not medically necessary.

Just because you don't like your equipment doesn't mean you get a whole new set compliments of everyone else. If a transgendered person wants to purchase health insurance to cover the cost of their elective surgery then good for them. If your organs perform the basic function for which they are for there is no medical need.
I suppose it would all depend on what you consider medically necessary. I suppose that's where the debate is. And where exactly does one draw a line?
