From the Daily Mail, the story of a young man who was quoted $4,517 a year for automobile insurance. (His record was not great.) A light bulb went on: he asked, how much would it cost if I were a woman? $3,423. You can see what is coming:
David was angered by what he perceived as gender-based discrimination and asked his insurance broker to change his gender on paper to female, but his request was denied.
Undeterred, David decided to legally change his gender with the Government of Alberta so that he could obtain a new birth certificate and a new driver’s license listing him as a woman, which he could then take back to his insurer.
In order to do that, the frugal motorist learned, he had to get a letter from his doctor saying he identified as a woman.
At first, David thought that was the end of the road for his enterprise because he did not want to undergo a gender reassignment surgery, but he was mistaken: all he had to do was tell his physician that he wished to change his sex.
After submitting the doctor’s note and all the necessary forms, David received in a mail his new birth certificate, in which his sex was listed as female.
‘I was quite shocked, but I was also relieved,’ he said. ‘I felt like I beat the system. I felt like I won.’
Armed with his brand-new birth certificate, David went back to his insurance company and got the lower rate, saving him $91 a month.
‘I did it for cheaper car insurance,’ he admitted to CBC….
Some “trans” Canadians were angry, much as some actual Indians were angry at Elizabeth Warren for worming her way onto the Harvard faculty on the basis of high cheekbones and alleged family lore:
Members of the trans community in Canada have reacted with outrage to David’s cost-cutting scheme.
‘I think it cheapens the whole process. It sort of casts doubt on everybody else’s motives for making those changes,’ said Marie Little, a former chair of the Trans Alliance Society. ‘I think it gives ammunition to people who want to take rights away from trans people.’
That’s one way of looking at it. In my view, it highlights the absurdity of the concepts of gender “identification” and “assignment.” The more people who make the current regime look silly, the sooner it will collapse of its own weight.
