The parliament of Thuringia, a state in central Germany, has decided against the use of gender language in official communication.
According to the report, in the corresponding vote on November 9, 38 of 74 members of the state parliament voted in favor of a motion by the opposition Christian Democratic Union (CDU) to ban the gendering of the German language.
The introduction of gender language was prevented thanks to the fact that a red-red-green minority coalition currently governs in Erfurt. The CDU had been supported by the AfD deputies, who had previously signaled their approval.
The CDU member of parliament Christoph Zippel justified the motion with the fact that, according to various surveys, the majority of people in Germany reject gender language. The AfD has called gender language a “language slur.”
