'Female' Traffic Signs A Step Forward, Or A Step Back?

mrpops09_CMOD_mrpops09_CMOD_ Chief Moderator


According to ITV, "crossing light symbols depicting women instead of men have been introduced in Melbourne, Australia with campaigners calling it progress for equality."

The CEO of Committee for Melbourne, Martine Letts, said:

"There was unconscious bias built into our brains because we are accustomed to seeing a male figure. If we see more female figures on traffic lights that might also have a positive impact on changing the way we view the world."

....

Setting aside the disgustingly regressive ideas featured in these new crossing symbols regarding the roles associated with men and women, a more troubling thought emerges. If these new symbols are supposed to represent equality, why are they different at all?

Crossing signs featuring differentiation between the sexes implies men and women are categorically different; it also implies that a person must be either male or female. Someone who respects the fluidity of sexuality and gender would never advocate something so exclusionary.

    The graphics of the lights are pretty neat

    That was a joke, right?
    People in this world look at things mistakenly, and think that what they do not understand must be the void. This is not the true void. It is bewilderment.

  • Or whoever came up with the idea is a joke.

    If the politicians treat people this poorly when they're armed to the teeth,

    just imagine what they'll be willing to do once they've disarmed everyone.

    More money for traffic light installation companies. Wonder who owns them?
    Perhaps the next step forward will be a new rule saying men and women have to cross the road only when their specific light shows to avoid a fine.  Will they next be installing transgender lights or gay lights :/

    Many, even most of these city projects come under bidding contract, and I think cities have special relationships with companies (politicians and capitalists) to help one another out, so there's a lot of "interest" in "social activism" like this (re: $$$).

    in that case, I am offended.. want a whole street and light for myself, actually make that a 30 mile radius, so I do not have to deal with Idiots when I go out

  • There are so many other symbols that could symbolize "go ahead, cross the street" and "don't go anywhere, stand right here" besides a stick figure of any gender. My first thought was "Why not just solid red and green lights?" but I suppose that those might look confusing for motorists despite being on a crossing light. I don't see why it couldn't be something like a green triangle and red octagon though.
    Distracting, but inspiring.

    That would certainly work. What I'm confused at is the fact someone can be offended by a stick-figure in the first place lol
