Why should we do that?
- to promote equality
- to stop discrimination/invisibility of certain groups
- to stop reproduction of stereotypical role models (der Arzt – die Krankenschwester vs. die Ärztin – der Krankenpfleger)
- to promote an inclusive language
What is the idea behind it?
The idea is that language is a powerful tool and what and how we say things, is how we see and think them. If we do not name everyone, we do not think of everyone.
What options do I have to do that?
