Because female bodies and male bodies, and subsequently their lifestyles and health decisions, are perfectly 100% identical. There are no differences whatsoever between the two, right?
You can’t just divide the world up into neat equal segments. Women and men are different and the costs reflect that. The costs aren’t going to go away by legislation, that’s for damn sure. Instead we’re going to see limited coverage for both genders now. And the little footnote at the bottom of this graph states that it’s based on rates of premiums men and women pay. So I guess it’s a victory that EVERYONE has to pay MORE now? What a perverse and backward world view.
The hunt for absolute equality will be the downfall of our society…because it naturally does not exist.
