STAFF in the London Tube have been ordered to stop using “ladies and gentlemen” when speaking to passengers — to avoid offending people who claim they are neither a man or a woman.
Instead, they are being told to use “gender-neutral” phrases when conversing with members of the public in the tube.
It follows lobbying from campaign groups like Stonewall, which has been pressuring Transport for London (TfL) and others for months on the matter.
Stonewall claimed “ladies and gentleman” is “outdated” and “belonged to yesterday”.
The censorship will extend to pre-recorded messages played throughout the stations across London.
London Mayor Sadiq Khan said: “TfL has made a commitment to transition from gender-specific phrases like ‘ladies and gentlemen’ which are currently used in announcements, to a gender-neutral alternative such as ‘good morning/good afternoon everyone’.
“TfL has briefed its staff on this, though from time to time, well-meaning staff may still use the term ‘ladies and gentlemen’.
“If this happens frequently, TfL will issue reminders to staff.”
It is the latest example of politicians and authorities pandering to politically correct campaign groups.
In the last census in the United Kingdom, 0.4 per cent identified as neither male or female, as non-binary.
You have to question the sanity of someone who identifies as “non-binary”.
Scottish Trans Alliance defines it as: “Identifying as either having a gender which is in-between or beyond the two categories ‘man’ and ‘woman’, as fluctuating between ‘man’ and ‘woman’, or as having no gender, either permanently or some of the time.”
I fail to see how people can read that without seriously questioning the mental health of a “non-binary” man or woman.
Scottish Trans Alliance even made a hilarious graphic to teach us stupid people about “non-binary”.
Other demands of the non-binary community which we will seep into the public domain are the changing of our education system to cater their desires, the redesigning of forms to include non-binary as an option, the enforcement of the long list of weird pronouns like ze/hir/hirs [LOL] instead of he or she and finally, probably one of the most dangerous ones, the introduction of gender neutral facilities.
Let us hope this bubble bursts one day, and the pendulum of sanity swings back to reality. This crazy pattern is eradicating the strength of the British people. When the next big war happens, it won’t be diversity and inclusion that wins it. It will be patriotism and tough guys — not these wormy dweebs spitting their dummies out the pram about fucking pronouns and tube greetings.
