    Day-trippers and tourists complained they don’t know which way to turn while crossing streets in central London after being confronted by a series of arrows pointing in different directions.

    The solitary “green man”, who has been featured on UK traffic lights since 1969, has now been joined by a male partner or replaced with two green women holding hands.

    Officials said the seven different same-sex symbols were designed to show Transport for London’s “support for lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans diversity” in the capital.

    Other lights feature pairs of female and male gender symbols, or a transgender symbol which combines elements of both sexes.

    Father-of-two Anthony Smith said he didn’t know what to do when he saw two female symbols on the green traffic light.
    Mr Smith, of Preston, Lancashire, said: “When the light went green I saw the two female symbols and I thought, ‘Oh right, so my missus can cross with my little girl but what do me and the boy do?’

    “This wouldn’t work up north. If you introduced this in Preston people wouldn’t know what you were going on about. I think it’s just a London thing really.”

    Why are we catering to such a small % of the population?

    Mayor Khan will eventually sort out this gay, transgender business, don't worry. He just needs a little time to build his base "constituency" a bit more. Please be patient. It's coming.



    These scenes below will be so much more spectacular when the venue eventually and gloriously changes to Big Ben and the Tower of London.

    I'm sure you can support their rights without having to potentially compromise safety.

    Current phase: taqiyya

    "There are several forms of lying to non-believers that are permitted under certain circumstances, the best known being taqiyya. These circumstances are typically those that advance the cause of Islam - in some cases by gaining the trust of non-believers in order to draw out their vulnerability and defeat them."

    Is it wrong to jerk off to the symbol of two broads together?

    While that is stupid as fuck, if you don't know that green means walk and red means don't walk you might be a fucking moron.

    Yeah, but don't count your chickens before they're hatched.

    It can only be a matter of time before the SJWs decide that associating the notion of "stopping" with the color that has 'historically been used to denigrate Native Americans', is highly racist, bigoted, marginalizing, disenfranchising and a micro-aggression.

    Shortly thereafter, green signs will be seen as an affront to Martian-Americans.

    But that's the very essence of modern progressivism encapsulated in a nutshell.
