The democrats owe the transgender community and the feminism community some mighty lengthy and heartfelt apologies, after their disrespectful attempts to co-opt both groups for their own, self-serving political means.
We have seen a number of heartbreaking stories over the years regarding “gender dysphoria”, a condition in which a person feels “trapped” inside of a body that they don’t feel well in. While some are able to afford expensive treatments and surgeries, a great many suffer silently with depression, confusion, and any number of related, mental-environmental issues. For these men and women, particular in the American land of liberty, the problem is very, very real.
The fortunate thing is that gender dysphoria only affects an infinitely small number of Americans.
On the other hand, however, are the trendy “transgender” bandwagons who simply took Obama’s lead into gender fluidity, which was all based on the idea of galvanizing the LGBTQ community behind 2016 democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. The number of people who refuse to be labeled by gender, or consider themselves “trans” is much, much higher than the reality of gender dysphoria, and have completely muddied the waters for those who are truly suffering.
Now, in an incredibly ugly turn of events, people are now switching gender all willy-nilly in order to save money on car insurance.
A Canadian man has reportedly legally changed his gender to female to take advantage of lower car insurance rates.
An Alberta man in his early 20s says he will save nearly $1,100 in the cost of auto insurance as a result of his decision to change his gender on his government IDs to “female.”
“I have taken advantage of a loophole,” said the man who is being called “David” by the CBC in order to comply with his request to protect his identity.
David identifies as a male and – since he is under 25 – is considered at higher risk for collision. His driving record already includes a collision and at least one ticket. When he was given a quote of some $4,500 per year for car insurance for a Chevrolet Cruze with all the bells and whistles, however, he asked what the cost would be if he were a woman. The car insurer’s response: about $3,400, a difference of $1,100.
“I was pretty angry about that,” he told CBC. “And I didn’t feel like getting screwed over any more. So I asked them to change my gender on my auto policy, and she’s like, we can’t do that.”
Given just how awful all of the latest Geico advertisements have been, the insurance company ought to just lean into this angle and retire those pedantic cavemen and the gecko for good.
