Response to Angel,
“These surveys asked questions such as ‘have you worked as a florist, hairdresser, etc.’ in an attempt to judge masculinity and avoid providing coverage to homosexual men.”
I agree with many of the arguments you made in your post. Especially the quote above. I was shocked and yet, not surprised, that an insurance company had the right to ask such questions and make a judgement off of it. One way to look at this is to see how our country has changed since the early 80s. An insurance company (I hope) would never get away with this type of prejudice, judgement and discrimination. However, in some degree we (as a society) are acting out in other ways. For example, the discrimination made towards the Asian population during COVID-19.
