Alaska Airlines changed their entire uniform policy to accommodate “transgender” employees – even going so far as allowing male flight attendants to have long hair and wear makeup.
But it still wasn’t enough for LGBT activists – and now “non-binary” employees have complained that the airline “discriminated” against them by forcing them to wear either a feminine or masculine uniform.
Even more bizarre, the Washington civil rights commission agreed – and just wait until you hear the insane details.
To start – Alaska Airlines radically changed their uniform policy in 2019 – allowing flight attendants to choose to wear either a masculine or feminine uniform – regardless of their biological gender.
They even allowed employees to wear ridiculous “gender pronoun pins” – so travelers knew to refer to flight attendants by whatever “pronoun” they chose to be that particular day.
One would think LGBT activists would be ecstatic at such an “inclusive” change, right?
As it turns out, while Alaska Airlines does let flight attendants choose a male or female uniform – they can’t mix and match both outfits.
Paddle Your Own Kanoo reported:
“When Alaska Airlines introduced a brand new uniform in 2019, it forced employees to choose a uniform based on two binary definitions of gender. There was the female uniform and the male uniform and employees were not permitted to mix and match from the two uniforms.
Both uniforms had differing standards. Female uniform wearers could wear their hair down and wear makeup and nail varnish. Male crew were barred from wearing earrings and high-heel shoes but could roll up their shirt sleeves.”
In fact, this prompted a “non-binary” employee to complain to the ACLU about being “discriminated” against.
So yet again, Alaska Airlines updated their policy allowing all employees (regardless of their biological sex) to wear piercings, nail polish, and makeup.
However, the disgruntled employee, Justin Wetherell, still claims since Alaska Airlines instructs employees to choose either a ‘feminine’ or ‘masculine’ look – not allowing them to mix and match – that it prohibits them from expressing their “true selves.”
Paddle Your Own Kanoo continued:
“While teaching new flight attendants, I am able to dress and groom in a manner befitting my gender identity and expression. Supervisors, coworkers, and students constantly share their happiness in seeing me show up as my full self, Wetherell said on Monday.
However, while working as a flight attendant, I am forced into an outdated ideal of masculinity and femininity. Alaska Airlines wants to portray stereotypical genders to the public, which actively harms employees and creates an exclusionary work environment.”
Give me a break!
But this is what happens when companies bow down to the LGBT agenda – no matter how many concessions and changes they make – it’s never enough.
And sadly, instead of telling this flight attendant to get over it or just get a new job – “civil rights” groups agree with employees like Justin – which just empowers other LGBT activists to file their own complaints.
Airlines would be better off focusing on having enough seats for passengers and minimizing flight delays – instead of whether they’re “offending” a biological male who wants to wear makeup but still dress in a “masculine” uniform.
As for the rest of us – we just want to get to our destination with as little chaos as possible.
