Universities in Slovenia are forbidding using HE as they think SHE is more neutral grammatical word.
Declaring SHE as neutral

I wonder how many males wants to be called SHE insted of HE?

Why not making totally new world which is actually neutral instead of using the word which has been defined as a female.
( Luckily in my language we have always had one neutral word for singular third person pronoun, no she or he at all .. )

If this idea that universities in Slovenia have starts to spread around the globe, if will definately make male sex as lesser important and less valued. Is this equality ? NO

Next step is using neutral first names to all.. or even worse female first names to all boys, for equality in job application forms and so on...

That is incorrect and grossly overstated, your source clearly states;



Faculty of Arts Declares Female Grammatical Gender “Neutral”


Bolding by me.

As for "Victory", I'm assuming that you didn't really comprehend the source material.



simplistic yet authoritative intervention in language.




The rule is already becoming a joke among the public


It's just another example of group think gone wrong by people educated beyond their intelligence, with an extremist agenda.

I'm just gonna walk around with my size-too-small cutoff jean shorts and front end bulge and you can call me whatever you want.

Why is everyone such a milksop whiner these days?

You want gender neutral, "it," "dumbf**k," "dirtball," "that waste of space over there," etc.

I don't follow that. Why would that necessarily be the result? Because 'she' comes with the stamp of lesser value inherently?

Ok then. You can call a man she, as long as we go call a woman, it.

Nothing devaluing in that, right?

I wasn't proposing anything, nor showing agreement towards 'she' being a more neutral term, I was asking a question for clarification.

Is that okay with you?
