Big Biz loves the wokeness. Those Big Cheeses and horrid HR ladies don't have so much real work, so they are happy to go along with the Politically Correct and worse agendas for new materials for memos and email. It doesn't hurt either that when the Feral Government, completely controlled by the ctrl-left at this point and a part of the Crony-Capitalist system, says "we have many genders and jump to it with your program", Big Biz will answer "How high, Xir!"
Et tu, Germanus? OK, well, they don't know any Latin, I guess, those Huns. Since the end of WWII, the guilt that has been pushed upon them must have been overwhelming.
The picture above comes from the Business section of Deutsche Welle a "multimedia outlet", and an article titled Lufthansa will no longer address you as 'ladies and gentlemen'
Diversity isn't just an empty phrase, but is a reality for Lufthansa, Anja Stenger, the company's spokeswoman, told DW. "Starting now, we also want to express this attitude in our language," she said.See, there's one of those real-job-lacking employees for ya'.
Lufthansa crews would now use gender-neutral phrases such as "Dear guests," "Good morning/evening" or simply "Welcome on board." The decision on how to address passengers will ultimately be made by the crew, who were informed about the change in May. The change is effective immediately.
Ahha, it's "effective immediately", but "the decision on how to address passengers will ultimately be made by the crew". The union will hopefully get involved for any Captain(s)*, almost all who are un-woke, make the wrong decision. As for the flight attendants, most of the that crowd probably sees no problem with the change.
Then, we hear from a one Alexandra Scheele, "an expert on sociology and economy". There's another person without a real job.
This move works at a symbolic level. It can be considered as a 'gender-sensitive' step through which the gender binary is questioned," Alexandra Scheele, an expert on sociology and economy at the Bielefeld University, told DW. "People who identify themselves beyond male/female, as well as everyone who is questioning the binary systems, might be addressed better without using the phrase 'ladies and gentlemen/Damen und Herren.'"Or, they could just question their own sanity, and hopefully get over all this.
I'm not sure how the ctrl-left are going to deconstruct, as they like to say, the entire German language to get rid of all the gender-dependent grammar. Hell, even things have a gender. "Airplane" is neuter, so they've got that going for them. OTOH, I can't really fault some of these genderbender BLT-G** volks for mistaking the gender of some of their favorite possessions. I mean, if you want your Swasticker to be a lady and have the ability to fly in the stalls of the damenbaden, then, by all means, knock yourself out. (You'd damn well better, before the modern version of the SS kicks in the stall and takes your non-binary flag and shoves it up your non-binary ass!)
Enough with the guilt-tripping of our German readers. I don't like the whole world kneeling down before the wokeness, but I also don't see this as a real issue, simply because how many actual ladies and how many actual gentlemen are onboard these planes anyhow? What, with the TSA and now the mandatory face-diapering, is there any way to even BE a lady or a gentleman in flight anymore?
