London Transport Employees Instructed to Not Use Phrase “Ladies and Gentlemen” Anymore

The London Mayor, Sadiq Khan, in conjunction with the gay rights group, Stonewall, scored a major victory today by banning the phrase “ladies and gentlemen” from the vernacular used by London Transport employees. It’s simply not in touch with the times, as genders defined by the DNA helix are old hat, worn, and not the reality that is supported by the far left — which is filled with hermaphrodites who can literally copulate with themselves.
More on this important, groundbreaking, civil rights victory for the gay class.
The phrase “ladies and gentleman” is to be scrapped from announcements on the Tube in a bid to make them gender-neutral.
London Underground staff have been told to instead use greetings such as “good morning everyone” to ensure that all passengers feel “welcome”.
All new pre-recorded announcements will also be changed to use the new phrases, Transport for London (TfL) said.
Campaigners had said the phrase “ladies and gentleman” – which is commonly used by drivers – was “outdated”, adding that it is“polite, but really belonging to yesterday”.
Stonewall, the LGBT campaign group, welcomed the decision, which comes after months of campaigning and was supported by London mayor Sadiq Khan.
The change of phrases follows similar moves in other companies, universities and schools across the country to use gender-neutral language.
“We want everyone to feel welcome on our transport network,” said Mark Evers, director of customer strategy at TfL.
“We have reviewed the language that we use in announcements and elsewhere and will make sure that it is fully inclusive, reflecting the great diversity of London.”
Mr Khan said he was “keen” that TfL speak in a “more neutral way”.
He added: “TfL serves a vibrant, diverse and multicultural city, and provision of an inclusive transport service is at the heart of TfL’s purpose.
“I am aware however, that some customers may not relate to or feel comfortable with the way that certain station announcements are made.”
TfL said it had told staff about the use of the new phrases, but that “from time-to-time, well-meaning staff may still use the term ‘ladies and gentlemen”.
“If this happens frequently, we will issue reminders to staff,” it added.
Stonewall said in a statement: “Language is extremely important to the lesbian, gay, bi and trans community, and the way we use it can help ensure all people feel included.
“We welcome gender neutral announcements to be rolled out across TfL as it will ensure that everyone – no matter who they identify as – feels accounted for.”
When I say ‘they’ are trying to control language, indoctrinate your children through the schools, and through pop culture, I mean it. The very best thing you can do, providing you have a little money, is to send your children to good private schools and explain to them that policies like this are wrong and there is nothing improper with being polite and addressing people as ‘ladies’ or ‘gentlemen.’ Take it from me, a parent who has sent his children to both public and private schools — it’s not even comparable. Two different worlds.
This is a key pillar in the establishment’s plot to destroy the nuclear family, neuter the male gender, and corral the lower classes into group think slave camps of thought, and then have them become loyal serfs — broken spiritually and physically.
Society is more augmented than you know.
