On your next Alaska Airlines flight, you might be served coffee by a male wearing nail polish with a “they/them” pronoun pin on their lapel.
Apparently, Alaska Airlines wants to make sure their uniforms don’t “discriminate” against any of their flight attendants, so they’ve launched a new uniform guide – complete with “pronoun pins.”
And once you hear the ridiculousness of their latest policy – and what they expect you, the traveler, to comply with – you’re bound to be outraged.
It all started when a “non-binary” identifying flight attendant went crying to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) to say it was “discriminatory” to be forced to choose between a male or female uniform.
As a result, Alaska Airlines changed their entire policy – even going so far as to say males are now permitted to wear nail polish and earrings if they want to.
Paddle Your Own Kanoo reported:
“With these changes, fingernail polish, makeup, two earrings per ear, and a single stud nose piercing are expression options available to all employees,” the Seattle-based airline explained in a statement.
“We’ve also updated our grooming policies to allow tattoos in more locations, more hairstyle options and are adjusting the names of our uniform kits to be focused on fit vs. gender identifications.”
But it gets even crazier!
Alaska Airlines took things further and created gender “pronoun pins” so passengers and colleagues alike would know how to properly “identify” and address flight attendants.
To start – it’s absurd to push one’s gender dysphoria onto the masses.
Travelers should not be forced to call a biological male a “she” …
…. or even more bizarre, refer to a single human being as “they/them.”
But Alaska Airlines employees obviously disagree, and are ecstatic over the change in policy.
On their website, Alaska Airlines wrote an entire article full of employee pictures and quotes praising the new “pronoun pins.”
Alaska Airlines reported:
“I answer to all pronouns,” says Isaac, a lead customer service agent in Washington D.C. “I accept he/him/his, she/her/hers, and they/them/theirs. I feel that there has been greater awareness and sensitivity to personal pronouns, and I love that.
But I’m also cognizant that changes take time and I want our society to feel comfortable with how they view and communicate with me.”
Of course, all the Proud American Travelers I know are rolling their eyes over Alaska’s latest move.
The truth is, Biden’s LGBT madness has trickled into the travel industry in a massive way.
United Airlines had their first ever all LGBT flight where every single airline worker – from the pilot to the ground crew – “identified” as LGBT and sported a rainbow pin.
Flying sure isn’t what it used to be.
So should you fly Alaska Airlines in the upcoming future – be sure you read the “pronoun pin” of your flight attendant before addressing them – or you might be accused of discriminatory behavior.
What are your thoughts on Alaska Airlines new “gender pronoun pins”?
Would you refer to a male or female as “they/them” because a pin told you to?
