A bus company in central China has launched a female only service only to be met with a barrage of complaints saying the scheme discriminates against men.
The number three bus company in Zhengzhou City introduced women only buses at peak times on April 26, the People's Daily Online reports. Some women have said they are fond of the new scheme and new mothers say it makes it easier for them to breastfeed their children on board.
However, just days after its launch, footage has already emerged of a pensioner complaining that the bus was sexist.
The bus company claims they set up the female only vehicles on the 906 route to protect female passengers.

India should have female only buses and trains! Men there seem to think all women are at their sexual disposal.

No, it's discrimination for women, not against men. If men weren't acting like animals this would not need to be a thing.

Special treatment for women IS discrimination against men.

Protection from assault is NOT discrimination.

No it isn't Morris. Keeping women safe from attacks is not penalizing men, they still have bus service, just not certain ones. They're doing the right thing. Never have any daughters since you care so little for women.
