France Could Ban “Confusing” Gender-Neutral Words That Endanger the Language



France could ban confusing gender inclusive words under a new law proposed by 60 Members of Parliament, who argue that gender-inclusive nouns make learning proper French more difficult and could even endanger the entire language. They say the fight for equality between women and men is fair, but the road it takes is sometimes confusing. Concerns have also been raised over the accessibility of the grammar changes for people who are blind or have learning difficulties. The proposed law will be debated in the national assembly in the coming weeks. France is the first country to stand up to the “PC Police.”
