A train operator has said its conductors will be warned to stop using the phrase “Ladies and gentlemen” following a complaint from a non-binary passenger.
The phrase seems to cover someone non-binary – it’s not ladies or gentlemen, is it?
The correct reaction is obvious though. Fuck off. Jeez these complaints about the minutiae of life and language are getting tedious. Enraging even. Sure, there’s some number of folks who live differently. That really doesn’t mean that 66 million people have to change their language as she is spoken.
