This text is about Political Correctness associated with the gender discussion in Germany.
Some things are hated more passionately than others. This column elucidates why. Series No.15: Dogmatics-shes.
Were one to regard it free from each ideology, one would be obliged to give a nod to the aesthetes of the she-within-haters. They think particularly it is not nice to watch if one writes, according to the gender equality, â€œaesthete-sheâ€œ in place of â€žaestheteâ€œ.
And that’s right. It hinders the readability, you stumble over it and think: Oh, misprint! And it is truly just false, as false as â€œBoardBistroâ€œ, â€œMasterCardâ€, or Bio-Bakery-Buildingâ€. Within words capitals don’t exist, one can ask the German dictionary, it will nod.
