That’s nice from them to do that for sure !

Also they shouldn’t be worrying about other stuff since that’s probably a request from multiple clients and a pretty easy administration change.

Glad to see that major airlines are moving towards Non-Binary options!

Actually it’s very important to correctly identify people, it’s a fairly cheap fix, but means a lot to people.

My wife gets very annoyed when she is called “Ms” instead of “Mrs”.

Hmm…

I can finally get my helipad seat on the plane as I identify as an Apache Helicopter.

On a more serious note, I can’t help but think that this is just a cheap marketing stunt from United to attract individuals who “identify” as something rather than male/female. They added an additional option to their bookings and that’s it. If they truly believe in what they are promoting, they should also, for example, push Newark to install gender-neutral bathrooms and other “things” that those individuals want.

I have a strong political view about the “gender movement” and I have tried not to be biased when commenting. If anyone wants to talk about the politics of it, DM me, I’d be happy to have a chat.

Mx. is a non-binary gender booking option now for United.

Mx, (usually pronounced /mɪks/ MIKS or /mʌks/ MUKS and sometimes /ɛmˈɛks/ em-EKS), is an English language neologistic honorific that does not indicate gender.

I have no opinion either way on the post. In an ideal society, this shouldn’t make headlines. It should just be a normal fact of life, and no one should think bad or good of United to add the option.

Sure many people will like it but it shouldn’t be something that would hit the headlines

This is fine and dandy-good on them… BUT, they should be worrying more about their huge 737 Max order that they didn’t buy the AOA safety options on. If the Max 8/9 have CG and AOA issues due to the engine placement, then the Max 10 is likely going to be a lot worse with the larger Leap 1A engine!

I’m not going to state my views on this, but I will say that they should be worrying about other things and not how people “identify”

unnecessary. nobody cares what you “identify” as, plus theres only 2 genders anyways.

united should be more focused on issues with the 737max and what they want to do, rather than virtual signaling about adding “new “gender” options” for booking.

dont @ me

The max issue is more of Boeing’s problems. But even at that, they still have to work on their other issues
