Wow, instead of treating the mentally disturbed, we are pandering and altering our society to reflect their illness.... The lunatics are truly running the asylum now....

huh?....."altering our society"?????'s a friggin' neutral name change.....a name change is going to change an entire society???? about a "nothing-burger".....we have a Manchurian candidate in the white house having secret meetings with a Russian dictator, you have a brexit going on in England, hoping that it DOESN'T create economic damage to everyday people....but this, THIS! is what will alter society.....shakes head

Haha Manchurian candidate. You people are jokes. The REASON this was done is because apparently any reference to sex or gender is now offensive. Rather than fight the madness, they caved to make it the new norm.

I could not care less about the change itself, it's the thought behind it that is frightening.

The key part in your quote here is "some people" What about the rest of us who would still like to be able to identify as a male or female in this case ladies & gentlemen. In fact you have been highly hypocritical throughout this thread. You bang on about change for a small amount of people being good and berate someone for not liking the change. Why can't someone not agree with this? Why is their opinion in your eyes invalid because it doesn't fit with your agenda or the LGBT community's? You and your merrymen sorry merry whatever your identifying as on that day have and continue to take PC to a place where it is now making others uncomfortable and resentful of your community

if you feel emasculated by them dropping ladies and gentlemen, use the bus.
stop watching tv too, only attend the theatre where they may still say that.
you can't have faux outrage for one without the other.

ps: this isn't a lgbt thing it's common sense, society on a whole does not greet each other sir or madam, punk kids not giving their seats up for elders must be part of this non conspiracy too.

Again someone please answer as to why you and others are not allowing an opinion that is different from yours. Also I'm guessing your stateside because there are many situations and places in the UK where sir and madam are used. The point being you may see this as a small change but for others this is the start of a slippery slope. Will children entertainers not be allowed to greet with the commonly used phrase "Ladies and Gentlemen, girls and boys"?
You say it's common sense why is it common sense? You are born male or female, if you decide to change your sex assigned at birth you are still male or female are you not? This was never an issue a few years ago but now it is. Why is that? Who really are the people with the faux outrage here? Hint. It isn't the people who feel that this has gone to far.

there's been many shows on tv with male chefs & female chefs. Who cares who takes the friggin pot out of the oven

No one's disputing that men and women can cook. All that was pointed out in that thread was the fact that for so long there are ads that show men as being idiotic or less than useful and "women" know best.

ll I'm suggesting is that Misandry is real and if during the same period that those ads were shown; ads created showing women being "stupid" or idiotic they would never have been aired and if they were there'd be huge backlash.

What they are changing it to is not offensive, WHY they are doing it is.

This is what bugs me as well.

Perhaps these aliens/martians have it more correct than we mere mortals ....

they refer to us as *earth people* can't be less gender specific than that!!

If you listen carefully, you can hear London laughing at us.

They, like most people, know this is a tiny piece of nothingness blown out all proportion by people suffering from future shock.

Well then, they should probably say who organized the bombing in the underground just a couple of days ago.
Maybe EU spooks, attempting to blackmail the UK into remaining in the EU.
