If you check out the current legislation re voting, I think you’ll find that The Representation of the People Act does not mention men and women at all -
the terms used are “a person” and “a citizen”

Not sure what that has to do with theatre announcements, though.

Re: World gone mad!!

What if a Lady prefers to be called a Lady and a gentleman, a gentleman? What if they find it offensive being called anything else? Can they complain?

Maybe we should all be checked every 10 years to see if our gender has changed so they can alter our birth certificates?
I don't have an opinion on it. But it's no longer the world we once knew and there is now a "gender spectrum".

Of course they can complain but why would they? Really?

Not really the point. Did anyone actually complain about the announcement or are the theatre owners wishing to be inclusive and being proactive?

Presumably the proposed announcement will be worded so it excludes no one and includes all. Who would complain about that (except some fictional Lady or Gentleman and Mr Angry of Mayfair)? It's a straw man argument.
