The female with a dress symbol clearly discriminates against women who wear pants... maybe I should complain about that and raise a fuss because I haven't worn a dress or skirt for awhile now...
Things are getting curiouser and curiouser.
Sorry, I'm at a loss as to understanding the complaint made. Is the word ladies offensive to transgender folks now? If I identified as a male, personally I would want to be considered a gentleman... but being called a lady is offensive to super feminists sometimes... so do we need a new language with new words now... so no one gets offended ever...?
My brain is feeling duller and duller.

This is clearly a discrimination against people with Symbolophobia

ETA: Someone should call them and ask what toilet to use, if you suffer from Symbolophobia, next you know, there wont be any toilets on this ferry

It was adopted as such in pre-World War I-Europe and later, and most notably, by the Nazi Party and Nazi Germany prior to World War II. In many Western countries, the swastika has been highly stigmatized because of its use in and association with Nazism.[5]

It continues to be commonly used as a religious symbol in Hinduism and Buddhism.[3]


A symbol that started out as one meaning and was turned into a different meaning for others.
A symbol whose descriptive words would mean different things for Hindus and Buddhists than Jewish people ....

What about Swastikas?


I wish the nazis hadn't ruined that symbol, been around a looong time.

Edit: didn't see your 2nd post about it.

Telling that person to be using the disabled bathroom is absolutely ridiculous too.


I'm going to disagree with you there, and I'm going to do so pragmatically. Gender dysphoria is still considered a form of mental illness, with caveats, by the majority of psychologists who compose the DSM. Mental disability is still a disability, meaning the disabled toilet suggestion wasn't at all outrageous or wrong.

This transgender thing is really getting ridiculous. I can't believe a judge wouldn't have thrown this case out. Nothing like a minority part of the population deciding for the majority based upon their personal feelings. As a male dressing like a female, doesn't she want to be considered a lady? Why would the word ladies be so offensive? This country is losing it's marbles.

Welcome to Female Man world. Blame the USA for this atrocity. Keep playing God. Karma is coming.

It also sounds like she called up worried about using the women's restroom and an employee just figured if she was worried about it no one would give her crap for using the disabled bathroom. She should anyway when one is available.

It is Newspeak! We will be limiting our vocabularies so we can not voice what we mean or feel.

I get that part, but why are they being forced to remove the word ladies and go with a chick in a skirt, it means the same thing.



Exactly! This is getting ridiculous with everyone being offended about every little thing. Words or a symbol, who cares, it means the same damned thing.

Its about discrimination of a minority group.


I disagree!

It is about some precious little snowflakes who want to bend society to their will.

It has not been a problem until now.












It seems three toilets, Men, Women and Everyone else is not sufficient.

This is about long term control.

Kinda seems to me that she's stirring the pot, and succeeded at it.

Now granted I don't know a ton of TG folks, but I don't know of any that call a place up before ever setting foot in it to ask which bathroom they should use.

Nor do I know any that identify as a woman and yet are offended by the use of word "ladies' room" or vice versa for the men.

Pot = stirred. Job done. On to the next.

Because look what it does to people. It reduces them to arguments. This is bigger than just the people, minorities, or shapeshifters. Real change is going on behind the scenes as we interact on the periphery, barely clinging to the surface.

You just proved my point. I didn't say Nazis, but your thinking about it.
