Hogan Rogers Posted about 1 year ago He, she or s/he? Should languages be made gender neutral or be left on their own to preserve literary integrity? Language is a mode of communication. However language has been in the past heavily influenced by religion. Now this is not a religious debate, but to point out the gender inequality in language. When religion forces language to mention female as lesser of the species and especially in Islam where two votes counts for one; inheritance to siblings is divided as one portion to male and half portion to female. So how can language survive the scrutiny and enforcement of religion where it has such major impacts on it. Gender equality in language can not prevail.
