Not as easy as it should be called. It all starts with the right terminology. On the one hand, for example, a Berlin father who runs the “Eltern gegen Gendersprach” account on Instagram speaks of “gender language” quite angrily. Its logo: an asterisk but crossed out in red. On the other hand: The teacher at his daughter’s high school speaks of “gender-appropriate language” and uses a photo of a door sign with the word “teacher’s room” as the background image on her private Twitter account. But it is supplemented with a post-it. It says: “*in – language is an instrument of power”.
