Is This Insurance Solicitation Discriminatory?

    ... a recent bank account statement i received included a brochure for an insurance product that the bank was selling. the insurance was strictly for women and it provided $50,000 worth of protection for women who were struck with a few very specific forms of cancer. is it discriminatory to market an insurance product to me (a man) that only applies to women?

    ... it did strike me as being discriminatory when i looked at it. shouldn't the bank sell insurance that all their clients can purchase and not just some of them?

    Weird, before including that brochure, the bank should have checked the gender of the account holder... or there are cancer specific to men only too..

    The entire concept of insurance is inherently discriminatory.
