Uber Lecturers Customers On ‘Gendered Greetings,’ Allying W/ ‘Genderqueers,’ And ‘Gender-fluid’
Make sure not to use “gendered greetings” or be bigoted enough to assume “cishetero-normative relationships” next time you board a cab! A new post by Uber commemorating so-called “Pride Month” featured a moral lecture from the rideshare organization about how one must go about navigating their daily interactions in order to avoid offending various groups, including the ‘genderqueer,’ ‘non-binary,’ ‘queers,’ ‘genderfluid,’ and many others.
The announcement was posted on the company’s website while also being blasted as a notification to the smartphones of app holders all around the country. It begins by stating “Move with Pride,” before expressing their beliefs that people should “feel empowered to speak their truth.” The company then boasts about multiple far-left initiatives that they are involved with before starting their moral lecture on how their customers can “Speak Inclusively.”
Tips offered by Uber for how people can behave better include avoiding the use of “gendered greetings” and not assuming “cishetero-normative relationships.” They also wrote “gender expression ≠ gender identity ≠ sexual orientation.” We were not able to decode what exactly this means.
Descriptions of some of these supposedly respect-needing categories were displayed soon thereafter. Defined classes included ‘Genderqueer,’ ‘Non-binary,’ ‘Transgender,’ ‘Pansexual,’ ‘Queer,’ ‘Polysexual,’ ‘Gay,’ ‘Agender,’ ‘Lesbian,’ ‘Asexual,’ ‘Bisexual,’ ‘Intersex,’ and ‘Gender-fluid.’
Uber’s definitions of many of the terms proved very convoluted. Take their thoughts on the meaning of ‘Genderqueer,’ for instance. According to Uber, those who are ‘Genderqueer’ can be a little bit of a man, a tiny bit woman, and even a blend of both or neither at all. Anything goes!
Genderqueer people typically reject notions of static categories of gender and embrace a fluidity of gender identity and, often, though not always, sexual orientation. People who identify as genderqueer may see themselves as being both male and female, being neither male nor female, or falling completely outside these categories.
Big League Politics very recently covered numerous other examples of the extreme push of so-called “Pride Month.” Another report today showed Twitter posts commemorating the event from corporations and publicly funded organizations alike, including the Trump-founded United States Space Force featuring a piece called “QueerSpace.”
Uber’s definition of ‘Non-binary’ also appeared to be quite vague, with the rideshare company similarly writing that it describes a person “who doesn’t identify exclusively as a man or a woman” and that they “may identify as being both a man and a woman, being somewhere in between, or falling completely outside these categories.”
The company, which has sued for racial discrimination in the past, concluded with an “Allies to all” section that offered readers “a few tips on how to be a successful ally.” One such piece of advice is to “know terminology.”
“A good ally must acknowledge their own privilege and bias to create empathy,” Uber lectured its readers. “It’s important to educate yourself on proper language and ask questions when necessary.”
Uber concluded with an eerie suggestion their readers ought to turn defectors in, writing that “you must speak up when witnessing unsupportive behavior.”
