It might be an advisory, but when people can get sued for lingual discrimination only because you used the generic term (THAT STILL IS IN THE OFFICIAL GRAMATIC)
or you get forced to write using the new idiotic forms to include all "genders" what actually makes technical documentation almost unreadable...
or...
or...

they are definitivelly not only suggestions.


Don't get me wrong, I do not defend the use of the masculine as generic. I would be equally happy writing a sentence at the beginning and saying "for readability we are going to use only the femenine across the whole document".
What bugs me is to have to use "Lerher(n):in-nen" to say "teachers" referring me to "teacher singular [m](plural [m]):singular(f)-plural(f)" = combination of "Lehrer, Lehrern, Lehrerin, Lehrerinnen" because to use the generic masculine form "Lehrern" to englobe all is discriminatory / sexist.
And yes, I have already got a document rejected due to not properly using "gendern", the german word to write that monstruosity that not even are "regulated. Some would write it as I did, others write it as "Lehrer_innen", others "Lehrern:innen"...
You read a sentence and have to remove al that crap mentally to get the actual sense of what you are reading.
In this case I envy english, the gramatic is way easier with mostly only one word for both and distinguising only between singular and plurar. You spare a big headache.

If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
