Radical leftism finally enters the rubber room phase

Not long now before they'll be fitting NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio for a bespoke straight jacket and feeding him apple sauce on a long spoon through the bars of his cell:
Greeting customers as “Mr.” or “Mrs.” — or even not using the pronoun “ze” or “zir” — could prove costly for New York City businesses under rules drafted by Mayor Bill de Blasio’s bureaucrats.

The Gotham mayor’s Commission on Human Rights says entities that fail to address customers by their preferred gender pronouns and titles are in violation of the law and could be subject to penalties of up to $250,000.
Absolutely nuckin' futs.

First it was cakes, then it was bathrooms, now it's titles. How bout just addressing someone by first name.

This is as lame as the large soft drink scheme that he tried to foist.

Penalties 'up to $250,000'. I wonder what you have to do, to rate a 250k fine?

Address them by the wrong gender pronoun...and then refuse to give them a tissue to wipe their tears?

Nuts, or just another socialist shakedown? $250,000 fine? There's a pocket in New York City government somewhere that needs that money.

I might choose to be addressed as a member of the Travancore royal family, Chithira Thirunal for short. Ladies get Aayilyam Thirunal. Oops, I said 'ladies'.

Mr. De Blasio, address me as Your Majesty since that is the title by which I wish to be known.
