  • Writer: @nate.stumpff Media: @mariaberni_ Earlier this year, California passed a law outlawing the use of gender to determine auto insurance rates. The Insurance Commissioner for California called the move an effort to ensure that insurance prices are based on factors within the driver's control. California has previously disallowed pricing based on credit, education, and homeowning status. In the US, men under 25 typically pay about 10% more for insurance than their female peers. This disparity decreases as drivers age, as male driving becomes less risky and driving history can be taken into account. Factors such as marital status and location can still be considered. #politics #news #currentevents #politica #politik #politicalscience #politicalcompass #balancetheballot #youth #voting #mun #debate #discussion #politcaldebate #gender #equality #carinsurance #california #californian #america #american #men #women #man #woman #female #male #usa

Yep they will just raise the Female rate to match the Male rate. Typical liberal shit, symbolism over substance. On the outside this looks like they are making things equal. The reality is they get to make more profit on women now........
California is screwed.

But the insurance is already based on factors 🤷🏽‍♂️. Smh 🤦🏽‍♂️, this is why California is going down first. ✊🏽 😂

Regardless of the reasons behind it, can we not just be happy? This is another step towards gender equality. It is unfair for women to say their rate should be lower because men drive more agressively. Women are just as capable of driving agressively, there are just less women that do. There are men who do not drive agressively, and this change helps them. Simple solution: Just... don’t be a bad driver.

"within the drivers control" so insurance should be the same for sports cars vs mini vans because the driver could drive slow? Statistics show male, young, fast cars, uneducated, single, all increase risk for accidents. Way to ignore facts, California.

That’s like McDonald’s charging obese people more...

@theboss757 Instagram Profile 26 January, 2019

This is actually a surprise to me because states aren’t really passing a lot of laws to make it equal when women have the clear advantage.... then again it will probably raise rates for everyone 🤷🏾‍♂️
