Spoon identifies as agender, using the "they" and "them" pronouns. According to some tweets, however, Canadian airline WestJet has been less than accommodating. Citing Bill C-16, Spoon added that this could soon be a human rights issue.
.@WestJet I am constantly being misgendered by your staff. It would be great to get some training for them on using gender neutral language— Rae Spoon (@raespoon) October 11, 2016
@WestJet Gender identity and presentation are being added to the charter of rights in Canada soon, so it will become a discrimination issue.— Rae Spoon (@raespoon) October 11, 2016
WestJet responded to the tweets asking for more information. Here's hoping this is a teachable moment for the airline that will prevent more situations like this from arising in the future.
