    I am sure most everyone are aware of the extreme measures Sweden is taking to eliminate the "male" "female" distinction from their language and replace them with the different subcategories that "gender studies" allow us to enjoy.

    The link provided here is from 'ECHO TV", a Hungarian broadcasting venue. Unfortunatly Bayer Zsolt, the host speaks Hungarian but the vide is subtitled in English.

    It is abou a crime committed on the border of the Swedish-Denmark border: a woman killed. You see the Swedish reporter (the woman) and the Danish (man), the latter trying to find out more about the killer:

      The comedy part in the video was definitely politically incorrect. It clearly demonstrates the insanity of confusing biological reality with made up identities. Comedians have been censored and some have had their lives ruined for less than this.

      This purposeful confusion is a result of a poisonous progression of post modernist preachings, which claim that truth, reason and knowledge is meaningless. In a post-truth society, objective facts matter less than appeals to emotion.

      Add in Marxism, and we get, “Cultural Marxism", which refers to regressive elements such as focusing on select group identities, differentiating people as oppressor and oppressed, and authoritarian political correctness.

      Much of this insanity comes from college and university training camps. They have been training their army of useful idiots for years.

      Almost a decade ago I started using the term "new dark age". Why? Because I saw, firsthand, how our society was abandoning science and logic, attacking those who practice it, and even doing it in a way that harms people. This is a real breakdown in logic, a breakdown in self-respect, too.

      It's like the beginning of The Bridge.
      The jokes about Skane-accented Swedish vs Danish go over my heard. The Swedes see the Danes as too laid back, and the Danes, see Swedes as uptight, but I never observed that. I have jogged all over Malmo, and it feels perfectly safe, reminding me of Madison in some way. Just across the bridge in Copenhagen feels more uptight to me, probably because it's a big city. Sweden feels more like the US to me than any European country accept UK.
      I don't believe there's anything at all to cultural marxism. They have three words for "not" in Swedish (inte, icke, and ej), so I'm fine with them creating a few new pronouns.

    Me dino would at this time thank my fraternal Swedish grandparents (may they both RIP) for becoming USA citizens around the start of the Twentieth Century.
    Thank you! Thank you! Thank you for getting away from that stupid country!
    Me dino knows I live in a country that's half as stupid but one can't have everything.

    What is ridiculous is that most languages (English is a noted exception) are full of gender - most nouns are either male or female in nature. Sweden will stop being Sweden long before people stop being male and female.

      I think the grammatical genders in Swedish are "common" and "neuter". That's how it is in Dutch.

      Spanish has grammatical gender, but I don't really think of hands as female and eyes as male... it's just grammatical gender.

      I have seen people write the Spanish write an "x" in place of the a or the o that would represent male or female people. I am fully proficient in Spanish, but I have no idea how that works. I learned Spanish in school as a teenager, and I probably never will un-learn the way to represent human gender.

      I learned English, my native language, in Madison where even in the 70s my parents and teachers carefully used gender neutral language, even correcting me when I said "look for a policeman," so I just naturally use gender neutral language in English.

      Oddly, I learned Spanish as a teenager, and never heard about gender neutral things.

      Language is so fluid. I drove my parents crazy using "like" as filler word, and now everyone under 50 does it. My kids use words I don't know. I don't know if it's just their friends. Seemingly innocuous words are code for sex acts.

      I used to think there was pure language, and confusing less and fewer or confusing past and participle were destroying the language. They're not. Life will go on. People will keep being male and female, whether in English without gender or Icelandic with its seemingly endless genders and cases..

        With all due respect, how did you use "gender neutral" language in English? Other than "he" or "she", there is no conjugation where you need to match the gender with an adjective, for example.

        Using "like" as a filler word is bad English. Yes, everyone is doing it now and it is an indication of their improper grammar, sorry to say. It drives me nuts when I hear people, mostly teenagers use it. It is similar to peppering your sentences with "you know".

        Yes, language is evolving to say the least. What's more, there are crossovers between languages as people mix English with French, for example. The French call in "Franglais". There is a reason for that b/c some words do not exist when you go from one language to another. For example, "startup" is a typical English word used in America which there is no equivalent in others. Computer software/hardware related terms are also one where English is most often used b/c there is simply no equivalent in other languages, or they sound very awkward in translation.
