Mein Gott! Academics Talking Sense On ‘Gender?’


How uplifting to learn that, in Mama Stasi Merkel’s Germany, of all places, there are authors, comedians and academics who still care about the preservation of German culture…

…slamming ridiculous linguistic constructions   designed to make German more gender-neutral.   https://www.theguardian.com/world/2019/mar/08/german-academics-and-authors-call-for-end-to-gender-nonsense

The German Language Association is the organisation that’s issued an open letter against linguistic subversion…

…and while I’m not familiar with some of the signatories, like a philosopher named Rüdiger Safranski, a novelist named Peter Schneider, or a comedian called Dieter Hallervorden, I’m not surprised at reading that another one is Hans-Georg Maassen, the honest patriot fired by Mama Stasi for telling the truth about the so-called ‘rightist riots’ last year.

It’s not just language vandalism they’re fighting, but the politically motivated strategy that goes hand-in-hand with ‘calls for more gender-neutral generic nouns,’ the stupid claim that masculine generic pronouns discourage women from entering certain professions: the fact that Germany’s constitution has 13 mentions of the “chancellor” in its masculine form “did not prevent the repeated rise of Angela Merkel to the post of chancellor.”

Schade – as they say, ‘what a pity!’

But Merkel or no Merkel, it’s good to see people putting up a fight against subversion.

When I was studying German in high school, the Der Die Das – masculine, feminine, neuter – was the tough part of soaking up vocabulary, but our German teacher, and the teaching assistants who actually came from Germany, reassured us – lots of Germans got them mixed up too.

But grasping the subtleties and idiosyncrasies of a foreign tongue is part of the learning process.

You don’t scrap it, you study it!

Needless to say, the anonymous Guardian hack who wrote the story makes no effort to hide his/her/its leftist bias, with the hostile reference to the German authors’ reactionary call to arms…

Reactionary?
