France’s education ministry just dealt a blow to left-wing equality advocates seeking to normalize gender-neutral spellings of words in schools. The Biden administration would be wise to take a lesson from the French government.
The Academie Francaise issued a ruling last week banning schools from “using gender neutral spellings,” which it said are “a threat to the French language,” according to the Daily Mail.
The education ministry is “responsible for guarding the French language” and considers the activists’ efforts to normalize gender-neutral spellings to be “harmful to the practice and understanding of French,” the report said. Source: Western Journal
