My place they used to give me the Black Spot each week.
p.s. Reminds me of eating in K-Pauls in NYC back in the 80's. If you finished everything on your plate they came up and stuck a gold star on your cheek. Freakin weird, though at the time I was young enough to think it quirky but quaint.

There is no true corporate altruism in a capitalist society...and the truth is, most are happy to support a company they see as having some sort of social responsibility, as long as they at least appear genuine.
You are right that they are exploiting the transgendered folk by making them wear the name tags, but they are still employing them in an industry other than the more exploitative ones to which they are traditionally confined. It's not perfect, but it's a baby step in the right direction. At least this way people will get to interact with them in a normal, non-sexual non-freakshow kind of way.

It'll definitely be friendlier than when I flew a British airways flight during their strike and "flight attendants" were manly-man men, the type who you wouldn't want to get into a fight with if their football team lost.

I flew BA last year during one of their strikes and was served by a crew of all pilots. It was the best service I'd ever had. I figured it had to do with them actually having to think about what they were doing and saying and caring about whether they'd done a good job. It was the only good thing I found about my whole experience with BA.
