    Swans introduce gender-neutral prefix

    Swansea City and Bournemouth will be the first Premier League clubs to offer their transgender and non-binary supporters a gender-neutral title prefix.
    Coinciding with Saturday’s designated LGBT fixture, the Swans and opponents Bournemouth are pleased to be able to offer supporters the option of using the ‘Mx’ title, should they not wish to be identified by traditional gender categories.
    The ‘Mx’ title, which is pronounced ‘Mix’ or ‘Mux’, is available for all transgender and intersex people, as well as people who don’t identify with one particular gender or don’t want to be identified as being male or female.
    “As a club, we’re continually looking at ways to make our services more inclusive,” said the Swans' equality and diversity manager Lucy Norman.
    “Language plays a really important part in delivering this and ensuring that everyone feels welcome – regardless of age, gender or gender identity, sexuality or ethnicity.”
    Bournemouth general manager Liz Finney added: “We’re pleased to have been able to work with Swansea City on realising this goal and making football a more inclusive environment to be enjoyed by everyone.”
    The ‘Mx’ title will be rolled out across all major points of service with the Swans, including ticket and merchandise purchases, enabling new customers to opt for their preference.
    Alternatively, for those wishing to change an existing account to the ‘Mx’ prefix, supporters can do so by simply visiting the ticket office or by calling on 08448 156 665.
    For more information about Swansea City’s long-term equality objectives, supporters can view the club’s Equality Action Plan covering 2017–2020 available HERE.

    Wouldn’t ‘M?’ Be more appropriate? Or am I missing any point - if there is one!

    **** it...I'll be a Mx if it encourages the dinosaurs on here to get a life.

    If it's what people choose to call themselves.. you really shouldn't feel threatened by that.

    These clubs should be charged for bringing the game into disrepute.

    Stop the segregation and individual titles and treat everyone the same.

    Here in Oz, we have bent so far over backwards to display empathy towards our indigenous, it is now reversed discrimination on show for all to see.

    The govt will throw $ at you IF you are of a certain colour / breed.
    If not, you must wait a further six to eight weeks for basic funding.

    I think it’s LGBT weekend in football. Stand by for whoever is our captain wearing a rainbow armband!

    Outrage!

    Or perhaps it’s entirely harmless.
