dear germany persons:
like many immigrants incl. Ukrainian refugees, I'm stuck in a situation where I can't use the German name/gender change laws (because I'm not a citizen) nor my country's system (because I'm not a resident).
my Krankenasse (AOK Nordwest) continually refuses to accept my DGTI-Ausweis, so that I get misgendered every time I need to use any health services or talk to them. after repeated requests I'm now giving them an ultimatum where I'll take legal action if they continue to misgender me.
I think there's a decent chance they will double down (because to do otherwise would require changing their software systems to have a gender of identity field separated from the legal gender, and the people in charge of handling complaints aren't the people who can make software decisions).
I fully intend to go after a lawyer and if that doesn't scare them, to do a legal battle and set a precedent for BvR 1833/95 implying that Krankenkassen have to accept DGTIs. if it becomes costly I'll call your help for crowdfunding ok
I guess I can't fault a game that has movement that's this fun for making me move around the city more

German words to show the importance of capital letters:
wagen - to dare
Wagen - car, cart
reifen - to mature
Reifen - tire
ahnen - to suspect
Ahnen - ancestors
arm - poor
Arm - arm
reich - rich
Reich - empire
samt - together with, along with
Samt - velvet
weg - away, gone
Weg - way, path
bar - cash
Bar - bar, pub
elf - 11
Elf - elf
fest - hard
Fest - Party
And no: "Party hard" is not "Fest fest". That would be too easy.
Enjoy our language!
I've been watching Jenny Nicholson's Evermore video and god it's such a trip and I'm mostly just sad that the cool questing theme park they're promising doesn't exist and has never existed :( https://youtu.be/L9OhTB5eBqQ
