Just filled out my health insurance forms!

yeah!!! fucking around with health insurance forms!!!!

I hate when people complain about “oh health forms are stupid they want my biological sex instead of my gender!!!!” or “they only have male or female!!!”
There’s a reason for that, you dumb fucks, and they’re referring to biological sex
Different health risks are present in different sexes, and whatever gender is in your head does not change the fact that if you were born female, you have a higher risk for certain cancers and osteoporosis, and if you were born male you have a higher risk for heart disease and often a shorter lifespan than a female.
In other words, your biological sex is an important factor in health and health insurance, and your special snowflake status doesn’t change that.

Coulda said it nicer but it’s true; it’s about health.

No. There gets a point where nice doesn’t work. There’s too many stupid ass angsty teens on here that are gonna get themselves seriously hurt or sick because they wanna be a special fucking snowflake. Lemme tell you a thing. Doctors don’t give a flying fuck what you identify as. All they want to know is do you have two X chromosomes or an XY? Because cancer and lupus and certain medicines don’t give a flying fuck what pronouns you use. This is about your fucking LIFE. stop being angsty for TWELVE SECONDS because when you’re in an ambulance or going into cardiac arrest or whatever the situation may be, it’s ESSENTIAL that you get your head out of your ass long enough to tell them your BIOLOGICAL SEX that you were BORN WITH. It literally may save your life.

This is so important.

Duh.

Okay so I’m not an expert but it seems to me that if there were some kind of life threatening situation where they might need to know your biological sex they could pretty easily discern that without a form. Part of basic procedures like CPR involve removing an individuals pants, they usually have you strip naked before operating, hospital gowns are open in the back, etc. And also unless there has been an incident directly involving your genitals I don’t think there are so many differences between the health of men and women that it could “save your life” for them to know. Yes there are some diseases and health issues that are more common in men or women, but diagnosing an individual case does not have anything to do with them knowing your biological sex at that very second. If you have congestive heart failure, you have congestive heart failure regardless of what other working parts you have.
And furthermore, if it were a trans person and they were going through a transition, it would be even more helpful for medical professionals to know so that they’d be aware of any sort of hormones they were taking, any procedures they’d undergone, etc.

The biggest problem with this kind of thing is that there’s a difference between sex and gender, and both are spectrums, not just gender. Like, sure, maybe they need to know your chromosomal status- except saying ‘male’ and ‘female’ only accounts for XX and XY. If they really needed to know your sex chromosomes before they could perform surgery, for example, then they’d also want to know if you had XXY or XYY, for example. And in some situations your genes don’t even match up with how you look anyway. Some individuals with XY chromosomes do not produce or detect androgen as a foetus and they end up growing into a ‘biologically female’ body with a vagina but
without a uterus. And what about intersex individuals? People who have both sex organs, neither, or an underdeveloped ‘middle’ organ, such as a micropenis or a short vagina? Or people with different bodily hormones to the ‘typical’ makeup for their sex? Or people who don’t match their body to their sex organs? What exactly is it that doctors need to know? And how can sex be put into two boxes like this? It’s really not that simple because, even though people may have trouble accepting it, every person on this planet is pretty much a special little snowflake. We shouldn’t be categorised so quickly. But, we shouldn’t just destroy the categories either, because what if some doctors genuinely need to know your sex? (They could probably work it out pretty quickly tbh)

That’s fucking cruel

This isn’t fucking funny. My mom has been a waitress almost all of my life and for most of it we lived off of scraps. She worked hard every damn day being paid less than minimum wage to help raise us four kids. All of our meals, all of our clothing, all of our school books, our fucking rent was always paid by tips. Some weeks were better than others but we learned how to make our dimes stretch and now she is doing better, with a manager position where things are more stable for her.
Bakc to the point, don’t any of you ever, EVER FUCKING DO THIS. SPREADING THE WORD OF YOUR RELIGION IS FINE AND DANDY BUT DON’T TO IT AT THE COST OF A SINGLE MOTHER NOT BEING ABLE TO FEED HERSELF SO HER KIDS CAN HAVE A PLACE TO SLEEP AT NIGHT.

I have had online discussions with the people who think this is in any way okay, and boy, was that frustrating.

One of my friends had a lovely solution to the thing where people offer you things like this: Don’t unfold it, don’t even look at it, just put it in your pocket and thank them profusely, explaining how you didn’t know where your next meal was coming from and you’d been praying, and God must have heard them because now you can buy food for your kids.

This is shit you give to your little kids anyway, not as a fake tip. This is worse than not tipping.
