I have not heard of a 50 percent gender split push to:
- drive the honey cart
- refuel
-clean up spew
-chuck bags
-paint strip an aircraft
-unblock a toilet

Must have missed it.

It's called gender equality, apparently. Male applicants are obviously just too entitled.

Gender equality is something HR hacks have a very poor understanding of.


There is a big difference between equality of opportunity and equality of outcome, the latter being outright discrimination.

Jetstar is going to pilots for type ratings and trips to BKK to be changed into females.

Who wants to play the game and put in an application and make a point that you identify as female.
Its probably career suicide, but can you imagine the dilemma HR would be faced with.
Don't change anything else about yourself, don't physically present as a female, don't change your name, just say you identify as female. They can't question or doubt your integrity on it, that would be discrimination.

I wonder if CASA has anything to add to this debate ?

Adults with Gender Dysphoria are at increased risk for stress, isolation, anxiety, depression, poor self-esteem and suicide. Studies indicate that transgender people have an extremely high rate of suicide attempts; one study of 6,450 transgender people in the United States found 41% had attempted suicide, compared to a national average of 1.6%. It was also found that suicide attempts were less common among transgender people who said their family ties had remained strong after they came out, but even transgender people at comparatively low risk were still much more likely to have attempted suicide than the general population.Transgender people are also at heightened risk for certain mental disorders such as eating disorders.
