Not only is “equality pedestrian crossing” a ludicrous idea, in Australia it’s front page news.

Several newspaper outlets owned by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp have today (7th March 2017) published articles pushing for gender equality with the walk/don’t walk symbol, claiming that the universal symbol of a genderless — yes who’s saying the symbol isn’t already a man? — is portraying the wrong message and that it should be 50% female and 50% male figures on the lights and signs.

This is political correctness gone mad. If we want equality then we better have symbols of EVERYONE who uses a crossing. Men, women, dogs, cats, kangaroos, fat people, skinny people, drag queens, metal heads, pop princesses, white people, black people… The list goes on.

Not only is this unnecessary, it’s expensive. How much is going to cost in labour and parts to install these things. Are the females pushing for this going to volunteer their time? It’s going to cost nearly $9000 Australian dollars to install just six of these lights. The justification is that 50% of Victoria is female and the pedestrian crossing lights don’t indicate this.

A total of ten female pedestrian figures will be installed on traffic lights at the intersection of Swanston and Flinders streets as part of a VicRoads-approved 12-month trial.

Feminism doesn't speak for women like me. I'm against the radical feminazi's we women are dragged down with. Against the idea that on this planet lurks a white straight person privilege. Equality is not equal. Men and women are not equal.

[…] The Australian state of Victoria is about to get push its political correctness agenda further with new suggestions they will “restructure” schools to avoid gender-stereotyped fairy tales. This is the same state where the city of Melbourne recently began spending big bucks on replacing some traffic crossings symbols with female ones. […]
