Fletch Politically Correct 'Cross Now' Signs


According to the Reuters video story HERE, Madrid in Spain have introduced new unisex 'cross now' figures at the traffic lights of their pedestrian crossings; apparently, women were complaining that the figures on the signs were only men. The police chief notes, "It doesn't require a lot of expense to not discriminate in traffic safety".

A Madrid town resident (obviously female) says on the video, "It's fantastic, but there's still a lot to fight for. There are many things that need fighting for so women can finally be valued for what we are worth."

I'm not sure what to think about this; I've never seen hordes of women waiting to cross because the sign said only the men could go or who felt they weren't valued enough because of the signs.

It doesn't looks as clear as the 'stick figure' to me: what do you think?

With the Sharia maybe.

While the elites worry over banalities the alienated turn to more sinister endevours.
