    Of course offering a discount to women is "raising awarenness", while any discount to men would be greeted by howls of protests against gender discrimination.

    Yes you are right - men need a ticket discount to get them to the best paid jobs that they dominate. :rolleyes:

    One assumes that this will actually apply to any customer who self-identifies as a woman? It would be essentially impossible to choose anything else to discriminate in this way!

    BrewDog have done this in the past too by offering their signature ale at a discounted rate for anyone who orders a 'Pink IPA', which anyone could do if they identified as female.

    It remains unclear to me in how far this is acceptable under Art 3. (3) of our Grundgesetz...

    "...women are paid less than men in Germany according to EU statistics..."
