I thought the announcer was kidding when I heard this on the radio the other day, but no, he wasn’t.
You know those garbled, hard-to-understand announcements you hear over the subways’ PA systems? Well, a memo from the grand poobahs at the Transit Authority has forbidden announcers, conductors, and other employees from addressing passengers as “ladies and gentlemen” (https://townhall.com/columnists/toddstarnes/2017/11/11/ladies-and-gentlemen-no-longer-welcome-on-nyc-subways-n2407854).
Why? Well, need you ask? “Ladies and gentlemen” might offend Transgendered Persons, our new Cherished Minority whose comfort overwhelms any other consideration.
But that’s just me being divisive again: ask any liberal. A really cool un-divisive person just goes along with anything and everything the Left demands of him.
I wonder what a big fat raspberry sounds like over a subway PA system.
