Shouldn't our goal be finding a language that everyone is comfortable using?
There was that scandal where a German politician using gender neutral langage for positive words but being wholly gender insensitive to words like murderer or rapist; generally using masculine terms.
Again, isn't being that bigoted not an obstacle in their own way?
Another thing I noticed about one of my professors is super into the idea of gender sensitive language, even making it a requirement for a term paper.
What I then have trouble understanding is that the same person uses the generic femininum instead of gender neutral language all the time.
Isn't that just flipping the whole problem on the other side? I mean, I can honestly understand if men are less inclined to use gender neutral language if that language disproportionately favours women.
I am a furry from Germany. Hooray.
I speak multiple languages, so if you don't like English or whatever just write to me in whatever language you like!
