A society can only choose one. And Germany opts for the latter.
A central German regional railway is launching a special women and children only area for their trains, a move which has triggered controversy.
The announcement from the central German Regiobahn line came earlier this week, with the network stating the new compartment on their Leipzig and Chemnitz would admit women and young children only.
To ensure maximum peace for those choosing to travel in that compartment not only would it be sandwiched between the service’s two quiet coaches, but it would also be next to the on-board office of the “customer service representative. Traditionally known as a train guard or ticket inspector, the company said “the local proximity to the customer service representative is chosen deliberately”.
Yet despite the recent mass sex-attacks in Germany, and the official advice to young women that the best thing to do is to keep groping migrant men “at arms length” to prevent rape, the railway denies the segregated trains has anything to do with sexual harassment.
This denial has caused lively debate and controversy on German social media, reports Süddeutsche Zeitung.
The launch of women’s only compartments puts Germany in a club of other nations who need to segregate the sexes on journeys including India, Mexico, Brazil, Egypt and Indonesia.
It’s fascinating, is it not, that a society which will not permit the rejection of the modern equality mandate on the grounds of demographics or economic growth or religion or the national interest or even simple reality will so readily throw it out in the interests of foreign invaders. Apparently fear of being accused of racism trumps everything now.
What we are witnessing is literal de-civilization. It is astonishing that so many people across the West are not only fine with this, they are downright proud of it.
