Roland Kaiser doesn’t want to become “stubborn and rigid” and is therefore open to gendering. The pop star now surprises with this statement. He advocates “correcting” the German language.

Dresden – asterisk, colon, internal I: Gender or not? For years, the topic has not only occupied the regulars’ table in the tavern around the corner, but also politicians. The Germans don’t really agree on this and have heated discussions. Now Schlager star Roland Kaiser is also getting involved and surprising with a very modern attitude.

“Needs to correct the language”: Roland Kaiser has a clear opinion on gender

While many of his famous colleagues rail against gendering in public, even calling it “violation of language” like Didi Hallervorden, Roland Kaiser finds the Binnen-I quite useful. In an interview with t-online, the 70-year-old now reveals that he has this awareness of his children: “I don’t want to be stubborn and stubborn. The discourse with my children keeps me curious and young”.

“There is a lot of tolerance and reflection in language development. You have to correct the language,” Roland Kaiser continues. “Some terms and expressions are hundreds of years old. It’s not always up-to-date,” notes the pop singer. “A new consciousness is developing in language and we have to face up to this development”.

The majority of Germans reject gender

“Language creates reality”, according to the XY. Whoever is linguistically underrepresented loses importance. That is why gender-sensitive language is important. Nevertheless, according to opinion polls, around two-thirds of Germans who are eligible to vote reject gender. One counter-argument is that gendering overemphasizes gender. As a result, differences could come even more to the fore.

“I’ve always done it this way”: Roland Kaiser has changed for years

Roland Kaiser, one of the biggest German hit stars of all time, sets a good example. “I say, for example, ‘pupils’ or ‘spectators'”. Even if gender is a current debate, the hit star has “actually always done it that way”. Certain things, like this break, you still have to learn.

Gender is also a topic again and again at the ZDF television garden. A few weeks ago, Andrea Kiewel announced a German musician. The ZDF television garden presenter pays close attention to speaking gender-appropriately and explains that she has to do it. ZDF later commented on Andrea Kiewel’s choice of words.
