A transgender woman in Michigan told WXYZ-TV that her auto insurance company spiked her rates after she notified them of her gender and name changes.

At first, Faith Francis believed she was being discriminated against for transitioning from a man to woman so she contacted the state attorney general’s office to file a complaint. Faith requested that the station use only her first and middle name in an effort to protect her privacy.

Later, she received a letter from the Michigan Insurance Commissioner’s office that explained that being a woman, along with other factors such as marital status, are among the multiple factors used to determine insurance rates.

“You [insurance company] are punishing me for following my … for being my real self and you are punishing the rest of the women in this state for nothing more than we don’t have a penis,” Faith told the news outlet.

The woman, who worked for more than 20 years as a truck driver, said that Progressive Marathon Insurance Company raised her annual rates by $970.08.

“Judge me by my driving record, not by what is between my legs,” Faith added.

The Insurance Commissioner’s letter included correspondence from Faith’s insurer which read in part:

On March 7, 2018, we received a call from Ms. (redacted), asking that we change her name from (redacted) to (redacted), and change her gender from male to female. (redacted) is right. This change did increase the rate by $80.84. We utilize gender and marital status as factors that, in conjunction with age, determine an individual driver class rating factor, which is used as part of a customer’s rate calculation in our Chapter 24 group rated companies.

Faith told WXYZ that the additional $80 per month has caused her hardship.

“If they would put my insurance rates back where it should be, I wouldn’t have to go to the food bank,” she said.

    Women are better drivers so our insurance should not be higher but that person was born a male so his driving will not change. Womens insurance should be lower than mens

    That’s unfortunate……be careful what you wish for. You are now a woman and now have to go with the rates accordingly. Can have the best of both worlds

    Tampering with Gods choice for your gender has reprecusions. She could just as easy made the changes and then gone to another company that didn’t know anything about her. She just wanted to make headlines. But then again is there really such a TV station called WXYZ TV.

    This headline SHOULD read “Confused Michigan man posing as an UGLY woman, attempts legal action after his insurance rates rose post perversion surgery”.

    There is NO such thing as “transgender”, you’re either born with a penis and are MALE from birth to death or you’re born with a vagina and you’re FEMALE from birth to death!!!
    There might be times in your life you’d feel better as a female, like when I was a boy riding my bike, is it fair the one with the balls gets the bike with the bar?

    This isn’t a transgender woman. It is a mixed male.

    Well it became apparent to your insurance company that you had serious mental issues when you made the decision to change your gender, (what sane person would do something as stupid as that!
    Then you have the gall to complain to your insurance company that they should ignore your stupidity and leave your rates alone!
    It is past time for you idiots to understand that no-one in America really has sympathy for your perverted cause except for the democrats, and they are only using you the same way they use blacks and Hispanics to further their quest for power and contro!
