"Yet insurance companies do this very thing and no one says anything about it."

The EU has stopped motor insurers from offering cheaper quotes to women, on the basis that men, especially young men, are more likely to speed and have serious crashes, but firms must not discriminate against them.

A firm selling motor insurance is called its4women.ie and offers quotes to women or men without bias.

Thus all other drivers now have to pay more on the premium to account for the non-loading against young men.
