And thus a simple remark started a chain of events that is leading to one of the most insane pronouncements in the history of mankind. Or should that be womankind? Or maybe personkind? Or entitykind?
So a chap on the phone makes an idle, if somewhat misjudged remark on the telephone and the recipient claims this is an “inappropriate remark”. Maybe it is and maybe it isn’t. It’s maybe bad manners and it certainly isn’t professional but that’s it.
But the recipient goes haring of to the authorities claiming that he/she/it is insulted and SOMETHING MUST BE DONE. He/she/it should grow a pair of balls. Or maybe he/she/it already has. Or had them removed. Anything is possible these days.
So now the mayor of London [gender unknown] is talking about scrapping the expression “ladies and gentlemen” because, after centuries of common usage, the expression has now become insulting, or divisive, or not diverse enough or some such utter shite.
I don’t blame the snowflakes. There isn’t much hope for them anyway and hopefully Darwin will come into play and they’ll melt in time. But the snowflakes have discovered that there are morons who will listen to them so an inch has become a hundred miles. No, I squarely blame the right fucking morons who listen to them. A quick “sorry about that” from the company involved should be more than sufficient, but the powers that be want to change the fucking language?
These Queer Genders [and I use the word literally] are going the same way as the Greens. I used to have some sympathy for the Green Agenda but they rammed it down my throat so often that I suffered from Green Fatigue and now I have no time for them at all. Now the Queer Genders are going the same way. I do not fucking care what gender they want to call themselves or what they do in their spare time but all this whinging about tolerance, equality and sensitivity has gotten right on my tits [I’m having the operation next week].
So now my attitude is that they can all fuck off. I’m not changing the way I talk to anyone. It was bad enough when they introduced “Ms” but that is the limit so far as I am concerned.
And if I have insulted anyone with the above, tough shit.
