War of the gender asterisksAre we catching your attention? That’s good. Because we do not intend to dwell upon the  dull question of „whether“ to use them, but instead look forward to talking about the „how“ with our eloquent guests. We shall expertly ignore the generic masculine form and its claim to „have evolved naturally“. We do not want to be „included“ in the masculine form, because it makes us invisible and seem irrelevant. And who thinks that their own use of language has no influence on the perception of self and others, please stand corrected by a growing body of research to substantiate this. A conscious and gender-sensitive use of the German language is not only empowering and challenges heterosexist norms and standards, it also has a few poetic gems in store.Are we catching your attention?
