Some would say voting for the lesser evil, at least help the minorities inside the country. As long as those people understand that they need to do more than voting to change stuff. To me it's more of a personal choice, if you feel like it helps, vote, if you don't think so, don't vote.

At the end of the day it's direct action and arts that do changes and influence people not voting.

I don't think anarchists sees it as winning, just a small hope of not having the worst "leader". Is there really anarchists campaigning for a party? I don't care if one vote or not but campaigning is ridiculous and they should organised instead, since the lesser of two evil is still evil that need to be fought.

Never of heard this, sound like the exact same people that have no understanding of sexual orientation outside of hetero/homosexuality.

Did some research, seems there is also criticism for iel because it can be seen a "inbetween two genders". Not 'say' but 'write', except if someone really say oignon, then I would love to hear that. I still don't understand why nénuphar change, maybe because the origin of the word is with an 'f'? I'll have to look into it.

I wonder if they are just testing to see how people react to the change or hope by not forcing anyone, the change will be gradual and become the norm.

A quote from Sartre

I don't want everyone to have a platform. I can't remember where but I once read someone stating "only white people think politics is a matter of opinions because their life aren't at stake" (yes I know, some white people's life are at stake). I've realised that it's true, every damn white liberals I've talk with, you just switch nazi speech to a speech that target white people and suddenly "oh that's not the same at all because * insert shit reasoning here * ".

Facebook is only one part of media consumption, sure it targets you with the same view but people deliberately make a choice to not listen to other sources.

job titles have two gender but it's not uncommon to use the masculine form as gender neutral. Which is a problem with the language as everything neutral is masculine. If you start using feminine for neuter gender it doesn't flow the same but that might just be something one can get used to but doesn't solve the gender neutral problem.

I think there is two choices, either reforming french so that it become a new language based on itself or non-binary folk could turn to a second language.

I've never heard of "iels" i'm assuming "iel" for singular? Does it come with an new set of adjectives or it uses the masculine or feminine form?

Never heard of a controversy about "les haricots" either lol. I would say "les zaricot". I don't know of anyone that can write french without mistakes. I'm surprised they would change "ph" to "f". Is there a reason for it? I mean there is so many words with "ph" why would they only change nenuphar?
