Scrapping ‘Ladies and Gentlemen’?

While Trump has just banned transgenders from the military, Amsterdam announced that they will henceforth only use gender neutral language. Just two weeks earlier, the London Underground announced to scrap ‘ladies and gentlemen’ for a gender-neutral greeting and yesterday the NS, the biggest train operator in the Netherlands announced that they will do the same.

My Analogy with Lesbians

‘I don’t mind her knowing as she is another lesbian like the two of us,’ Will said to me. You’re right, Will is a guy’s name and he is certainly not a lesbian, nor is the ‘she’ he referred to.

Love conquers hate

Ina did not feel like waking up on the 28th of June. She turned off her alarm clock and then minute after minute passed. Wake up please! I urged her in my mind. I looked up which subway line I’d have to take in order to get to the parade- only 3 stations away from here- if she didn’t want There’s more for you to read!

Gay supporters, OUT

Yesterday we encountered a protest against gay marriage and or sexuality. We were heading for one of the small palaces in Seoul after leaving the National Palace Museum of Korea.
