Condescend? I honestly don't mean to. If I'm trying to condescend I'd do it comically exaggeratedly.I think you shouldn't try to condescend when you are clearly in the wrong and don't what you're talking about.
Punji, the healthcare card serves as initial identification for you, which you may be to use to identify yourself in other legal contexts like if a law enforcement officer asked for identification or you needed to provide several piece of identification as points of identification for a legal document like a passport.
The number on your healthcare card provides a reference for your file in the medical database, which has all of the identifying information (birth date, sex, gender, address) and your medical history. As long as information is the database, they can verify who you are, probably more so than with your card since they can ask you to verify information about your medical history, which an improbable imposter is unlikely to know.
Also, think about what you said for a moment. If your healthcare card just had your verification number on it, it would be harder for an imposter to assume your identity for healthcare services, wouldn't it? Just like how it would be harder for this imposter to impersonate you if your sex isn't listed, though you could have an obviously masculine name.
Furthermore, foreigners have access the Canadian healthcare system, though depending on the services it may not be fully covered and prescreening would out anyone trying to engage in fraud. This is your healthcare system, so you should be familiar with this.
It doesn't have a photo so usually doesn't work as government ID. It serves entirely to provide me access to healthcare no matter how major or minor.
Again, yes. But if my card has some of the information in the system on it, they can be more sure my card is legit.
It would be harder yes. But they'd need to know that information already to fabricate a healthcare card, and more information is usually asked than is what is listed on the card.
I am intimately familiar with it. I've been to the emergency room twice. Both times I was taken in immediately upon telling them why I was there and received attention before they even took my card. The last time one nurse checked my vitals and took a blood sample as the other entered my number in before I was brought to a bed. They're going to check but if I was bleeding to death they'd try to save me first. They ask for basic information routinely to ensure they give proper treatment to the right person once things are stable, but it's not hard to miss things in the beginning. Why exactly do you think these measurements and precautions are in place?
This has gone way beyond the scope of what the thread is about, because you shove the goalposts further every time to have something to attack me with. Might we actually get back on track? I'm sorry I even let this go so far out of court.
Again deary, you don't know the company I keep. In fact, the people I talk to and spend time with the most are either A) Not furries, B) Not on FAF at all, or C) Not active on FAF.@ MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE (Quote me please so I know you're not trying to hide my posts to attack me easier) lol okay if you want you can use the language of transphobes like the company that has defended you that you consort with I won’t stop you but it does the opposite of dispelling the perception that you like them are a transphobe.
Who has defended me? The only ones mentioning my name here are your lovely self and those who more or less support the same positions as you.
Lastly when I asked you or anyone at all to show me something where I was being transphobic I get crickets and raindrops. You just don't like me and are using a personal grudge to fuel blatantly false accusations.
I don't really agree. "Being transgender" is exactly that, being transgender. With my past examples, "being a furry" and "furryism" aren't quite the same thing, though they're similar.I feel like a suitable synonym could be something like "being transgender" or just refer to gender identity, "trans people" could also fit in some of the situations. Also something like "the trans community"
For example, instead of something like "Transgenderism is...", you could say "Being transgender is..." or "Trans gender identities are..."
I'm sure other people on the forums also have usable alternatives and synonyms they would be willing to share.
"Furryism" is perhaps intimate involvement in the furry fandom while being a furry is simply being fond of anthros. Similar but they don't quite mean the same things.
