  • In a sudden wave of gender neutral ‘awareness’ flooding the Western European continent, the Dutch National Railway Company (NS) is next in line to chip in. The company will no longer begin announcements in their trains and on stations with the old-fashioned “Ladies and gentlemen”, but will instead to use the phrase “Dear travellers”.

    The announcement came last week after the London Tube and the city of Amsterdam announced similar measures to be more inclusive and accommodate those that do not identify as either male or female.

  • The Amsterdam municipality has made a new step on the road to becoming ‘gender neutral’. Civil servants are asked to no longer use the words ‘dear ladies and gentlemen’ at the start of speeches. The municipality doesn’t want to exclude people who do not feel either man or woman. This extends to the salutation above letters. The municipality wants to get rid of ‘dear sir/madam’ in favour of ‘dear people’, ‘dear attendees’, ‘dear people from Amsterdam’, or for example ‘dear inhabitant of the Spaarndam-neighbourhood’. The municipality has drafted a guideline so that civil servants can “talk and write about sexual- and gender-identity in a respectful manner.”

Generally, we have no power to make them leave the situation they are in but we can use various methods to remove women if needs be, but it is difficult. Some are brainwashed to not to talk to the police or any other authority.”

  • Alright, so that just happened. Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling blamed former UKIP-chief Nigel Farage for the terrorist attack on Finsbury Park mosque. Luckily for Farage, he’s a lad-emperor who knows how to respond to this sort of madness.
