While I disagree, say you're in a car crash hauled in by ambulance they check your provincial medical card
"Oh my goodness, Doctor, the paramedics couldn't find this crash victim's OHIP card, nobody can tell if it's a girl or a boy! How am I supposed to know whether they're more at risk of breast cancer or testicular cancer?"

"Leave it to me nurse, I'm a professional, and I went to medical school. It's difficult, I know, but with my years of experience, I'll be able to tell."

Four pages of wasted bandwidth so luddites can have their say on something that has no bearing on their own lives.

No one cares what your gender is.
Couldn't agree more. So why are all you fucking nerds still squabbling about it? Who gives a shit about Air Canada's re-wording their cabin announcements to a neutral version? This hardly seems like the hill to die on for either side.

Exactly, it's politically charged propaganda. Many topics are being inundated with people screaming about how they think we all should be.

After Monday, regardless of who wins the election, these crybabies will go back to their mundane existences and we won't have to listen to their bullshit.

Canada doesn't need foreign troll farms, we've got enough here already.
