There's nothing really wrong with that, especially because many women have felt for years that the term "ladies" carried a hint of sexism.

If this hadn't been a headline, I suspect no passengers would have noticed the change.

It's retarded but the market can decide.

Debate its level of retardation all you want...just keep the government intervention out of the equation.

That goes for both teams.

I see "ladies" as respectful.

I probably need re-education on that one.

My family has often considered calling females ladies.

A county commissioner once stood up a after I had addressed the court and said, Mrs Crone, this just proves you are not lady. It was proud moment.

But, everybody knows I am female. Who knows if I am a lady?

I consider "ladies" respectful too, and I'm a lady.

You don't need any re-education on the topic. It's just liberalism taken to the extreme,

I was taught that it's just good manners to refer to someone as a "lady" or a "gentleman." But what do I know?
