Insanity: New York Transit System BANS "Gender-Specific" Pronouns

In yet another determined move to destroy any semblance of reason we have left, New York city's transit workers have been banned from using gender-specific pronouns, including "ladies and gentlemen."

From Newsweek:

New York City transit workers will no longer refer to riders as “ladies and gentlemen,” thanks to a new edict banning gender-specific terms in the subway and bus system.

Transit workers recently received a bulletin that requires them to use gender-neutral terms such as “passengers,” “riders” or “everyone,” the New York Post reported, adding that conductors will override prerecorded greetings that use “ladies and gentlemen” until the replacements are made.

The policy shift is part of a larger, ongoing revision of the guidelines for how MTA employees communicate with riders.

”We’re fundamentally changing the way we talk with riders to give them better and clearer information,” said MTA spokesman Jon Weinstein in a statement.

Managers and supervisors have been told to “monitor for everyone’s compliance” with the new rules. A union worker said he had no problems with the new language.

“They are trying to be politically correct,” Anthony Staley, a station worker and Transport Workers Union member, told the Post. “They are acknowledging that they have some transgender riders. They don’t want to offend anyone.”

This is where we've arrived -- a period in which words like "sir" and "madam" are offensive and should be avoided on the off chance the person you're addressing happens to be part of the 0.3% of the population that actually identifies as transgender.

If this keeps up, soon even words like "everyone" will be off-limits, in order to accommodate those that identify as "otherkin," a term that essentially means 'human that's delusional on what his or her own species actually is.'

If you're otherkin and identify as, say, a dragon or fox, the proper term for you would be 'it.' Would it be considered offensive if you accidentally referred to a human as 'it'? Do humans even matter anymore?

Oh, the world we live in.

Stay alert. Stay alive.
