The New Segregation?


For John, BLUFShould the immigrants/refugees adapt to their host nation or visa-versa.  Nothing to see here; just move along.



About three days ago my wife forwarded this Brietbart article to me—"German Railway Launches Gender Segregated Carriages In Wake Of Sex Attacks".  The author is Reporter Oliver J J Lane.

Here is the lede plus three paragraphs:

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.

There are those who believe the mixing of the sexes is wrong and that when men and women are thrown together it is an indication that all rules are off.  This is not how American society works.  We believe there should be no barriers based on sex or gender and that no one person or group should take undue advantage of this mixing.
