The Gender Identity Movement in Canada is alive and kicking. Many of the super PC trends seen in the US could have likely come from Canada. While most people are trying to adjust to the new pronouns and deal with the odd new gender identities, one man has found a benefit to the trend.
A Candian man has found a way to take advantage of the Gender Identity Trend. A 23-year-old named David was irritated that his insurance company was charging so much, and found that he could save about 25% if he was a female.
“It started when an insurance company gave David a quote — roughly $4,500 a year, if he bought the Chevy. He had a collision and a ticket or two on his record, which helped boost the premium.
Then, he had an idea. He asked the insurer what his costs would be if he were a woman. He was told his annual bill would sink to roughly $3,400 — a $1,100 difference.
“I was pretty angry about that. And I didn’t feel like getting screwed over anymore,” he said.
“So I asked them to change my gender on my auto policy, and she’s like, we can’t do that.”
So he went online to find out how he could be identified as a female, at least in the eyes of the insurance company. After some research, he found that if he were to change his ID and birth certificate the insurance company would give him the reduced rate. In order to do so, he would need to get a note from a doctor.
After a quick doctor’s visit, it was done. He sent the papers off and the government recognized him as a female saving him almost $100 a month on insurance.
“I was quite shocked, but I was also relieved,” he said. “I felt like I beat the system. I felt like I won.”
The Trans community is clearly upset about it, as they feel it cheapens the whole thing for them. Some have even claimed that David is guilty of perjury as he is using the gender identity movement for monetary gain.
Alberta man admits to Perjury – “changes gender on government IDs for cheaper car insurance.” He thinks he’s so clever. Perjury is an offence liable to imprisonment of up to fourteen years. IT’S NOT A LOOPHOLE IT’S A CRIME! #ableghttps://t.co/U4jjP7elrk pic.twitter.com/46swLWdIf5

But either way looks like he found a way to save himself some money on car insurance.
