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, andthey’re referring to biological sex
Different health risks are present in different sexes, and whatever gender
is in your head[you are] 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 angstyteens on here that are gonna get themselves seriously hurt or sick because they wanna be a special fucking snowflake[aren’t fully aware of the repercussions of misinformation]. Lemme tell you a thing. Doctors don’t give a flying fuck what you identify as[don’t treat you based on your preferred gender]. 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[discriminate based on gender, rather, they only act based on what your sex is]. This is about your fucking LIFE, stop being angsty for TWELVE SECONDSbecause 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 totell them your BIOLOGICAL SEX that you were BORN WITH. It literally may save your life.
This is so important.
I fixed the above paragraphs, leaving in (but striking out) some of the original words, so that people can realize that there is a way to be informative and give education without making assumptions or making people feel bad for wanting validation. This is important information, but what is going to get people to listen to you more, or take you seriously? Calling someone a “special fucking snowflake” on an issue that affects their day to day life? Or giving them information in a calm, empathetic tone?
The first thing I did when I was a teenager, when my parents got onto me about something, was to buck viciously as what they were trying to tell me— important for my health or not. Hell, even now it’s a hard habit to just take someone’s disparaging words without puffing up a little, and i’m sure that’s the case for a lot of people. No one likes to have their situations, feelings, or emotions belittled, especially someone who is learning and trying to get through life in a situation that’s already hard enough to begin with.
It is possible to have a form where they can ask the question, “what is your sex? male or female.” because there are only two possible answers for sex. Transgender and non-binary folks don’t get that option anywhere, basically, and simply recognizing them in a short survey can go a long way to making them feel included in society.
When you put yourself on a platform to teach, it is your responsibility to utilize that platform in such a way that it will speak to people on all levels.
