French bill seeks to ban inclusive writing in public sector

Free West Media

The political world is manning the fight against inclusive writing. To do this, the LREM deputy François Jolivet will soon submit to the National Assembly a bill aimed at prohibiting “the use of inclusive writing for legal persons in charge of a public service mission,” reported LCI  on February 15. In particular, the school environment and political institutions are targeted.

“For a few years already, activists of so-called ‘inclusive’ writing have been using all means to impose on society their very personal vision and in no way a majoritarian one,” the bill, co-signed by 44 other parliamentarians, reads.

All the elected signatories recalled that “on October 16, 2017, the Minister of National Education declared himself against its use in textbooks. On October 26, 2017, the Académie française warned of the risk of ending up with a disunited language, disparate in its expression, creating confusion which borders on illegibility”. And they continued: “Despite these statements, (inclusive writing) continues to progress in our country. It must be ended.”

On Twitter, on February 11, François Jolivet also asserted: “Inclusive writing contributes to blurring the very nature of messages. It must be ended in all the entities in charge of a public service mission.”

The supporters of inclusive writing are not particularly bright. The recent speech of US Democrat Emanuel Cleaver during the first parliamentary session of the 117th US Congress, is a case in point.

In the name of inclusion, or the fight for minority rights, some go so far as to reinvent the origin of  words. This happened on Sunday, January 3, in the United States, during the speech of an elected Democrat in the American Congress opening the first parliamentary session.

In his speech, Cleaver concluded with an “Amen and Awomen”.  But “Amen” is not an English word, and “women” does not make sense in this context, even in terms of inclusion.

In France, the essayist Olivier Babeau tweeted “Ultra-progressivism and ignorance go hand in hand. ‘Amen’ has nothing to do with men in English. It’s Hebrew. As stupid as saying ‘mental and womental’,” he wrote on social media.

Ben Shapiro, an American conservative essayist also reacted on Twitter.
