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.

The main onus is on whoever prepared this form for not disambiguating between sex and gender, and not providing a third write-in option to cover all the myriad possibilities for either.
To recap, sex is a physiological term meaning XX or YY, but also various other possibilities arising from genetic mutation or sex reassignment therapy. Gender is a psychological term and refers to the culturally male/female feelings a person gets, typically unified but sometimes mixed up or varying or neither and probably other stuff too.
A well-maintained medical file includes both, and is open to any possible possibilites.

I guess I’ll go ahead and announce it… I’m making a dress-up game featuring Miff!
Dress up games have always been something I liked, and I’ve been wanting to make something like this for a while. My main impetus behind it is that it gives me the perfect excuse to draw Miff in any outfit I want. ;p
I’m hoping something will come of this that I can actually release. Right now I got the basic engine to where I want it and I’m coming up clothes for Miffy to wear. :3
First public release will probably be sometime around when I have something in every category. ^^

one time when i was younger i had some of that no tears shampoo and i wanted to see if it was legit so when i was in the shower i squirted it into my eye and i think i went blind for like three days

i think you may be a bit retarded because no tears meant like no tears in your hair; no tangles….

Please tell me I’m not the only one who thought no tears as in crying too

MY LIFE IS A LIE

NO

well

what are you talking about, the CLASSIC COMMERCIAL clearly had a kid saying “Bye bye tears! I can see!”

therefore, it’s a bottle of lies.

Yeah, I’m pretty sure it’s tears as in crying (or more specifically from an irritated eye) because the point is that it’s non-irritating in small amounts, like what a kid would accidently get in their eyes while washing.

Obviously putting a large amount of anything in your eye would irritate it.

RORY YOU ARE SUCH A RORY I LOVE IT WHEN RORY IS RORYING

"How could we forget the Doctor? He was the stripper at my stag party."

#i feel somewhat dirty for liking an invention of moffat

If it makes you feel any better, Rory is just Mickey except he gets the girl instead of dropping out of the Tardis after two episodes to focus on a Doctor/Rose OTP.

Note that the only episode where Mickey is treated like any other companion, The Girl in the Fireplace, was written by Moffat.
