My Little Pony (G1)

that post is easily the worst post on this entire website and it’s likely that most of the notes/comments on it are shitty and transphobic i love when people make rebuttals to those kinds of posts
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.
"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?"
I’m a cis male and nowhere close to an expert on this topic, but I think it’s pretty common knowledge that male and female are words people very often use to identify their gender. If gender is a non-issue in the question, then we should find a way to ask the question in a way that doesn’t involve words strongly associated with gender.
Heck, they could just put in a column of questions, “Do you have a penis? y/n/na”, “Do you have a vagina?”, “Do you have…” etc. They’re medical forms, you don’t need to tiptoe around mentioning the names of body parts.
Using the question “Are you male or female?” with no further clarification is not only hurtful to those who feel that they are unrepresented by the choices, but it’s pretty vague. If somebody identifies as female, they’re probably gonna say “female” if you ask “Are you male or female?” regardless of whether they have XX or XY chromosomes. So if the issue here is getting the correct medical care to people with similar bodies, then this question is worse off for not including a greater variety of options. Refusing to separate gender identity from body type isn’t some “no-nonsense doctors keeping it real” thing, it’s a legitimately confusing and dangerous denial of the variety of people that need medical care.
Also, not to burst your bubble, but mental and emotional health can be important to healthcare too, to which gender identity can be related. Plus, I’m pretty confident I’d feel less comfortable visiting doctors if they were misgendering me constantly. So I imagine a good doctor should "give a flying fuck what you identify as".
Basically, I’m saying that whoever filled out this form is proving that this is a terribly worded question which makes the assumption that the answerer is cisgender, which is undeniably not always going to be true.
I’m glad everyone is so excited to yell at people and feel so justified about it, but since this post consists mostly of angry language implying that everyone besides binary cis people are “angsty teens” and “dumb fucks” who made up their gender identity to feel like a “special snowflake”, and consists very little of reasons why a health insurance provider shouldn’t acknowledge a person’s gender identity or rephrase a vaguely worded question, it mostly comes across as faking concern about people’s health to justify an outlandish outburst of hate towards people whose genders you have not personally deemed legitimate.
