Translation:Carrie, is your wife Judy an accountant?
Right isn't it? I know that duolingo would serve this kind of sin that they proud to show of (bcs he has that disgusting campaign). I'm getting suck about this kind of pride. It is an ill!!! LGBTQ is such a virus!! It is even worse than Covid-19. The worst disgusting disease ever.
English speakers say, "Is your wife Judy an accountant?" General noun (wife) followed by specific noun (Judy). I would not ask that way, although it is correct. I would just ask, "Is your wife an accountant," because the husband (of course Carrie and Judy are both female, so...anyway) already knows his (...) wife's name. Or, "Is Judy and accountant?" However, we have to follow Duolingo's sentance formula. With 2 more commas your sentence would actually be acceptable. "Carrie, is Judy, your wife, an accountant?" But again, we have to follow Duolingo's formula.
Sorry, what's controversial here? Homosexuality has been around for much longer than Islam itself. Hard to understand why so many people get triggered so easily with something that is simply part of the human nature. Why create so much resistance around the topic of homosexuality when there is absolutely nothing you can do about it as an individual. Why not simply accept that some people are not attracted to the opposite sex and move on to something more productive in life? Better yet, why not being happy for them, and for being and embracing who they truly are? Nothing controversial here brother. I truly feel pain for all gay Muslims being conflicted by who they are and by living in fear of what could happen to them in several countries.
Here to leave a friendly reminder that a language course acknowledging the existence of non-heterosexual people isn't 'political' or 'trying to confuse people'. Language is a tool used to describe reality, and reality includes lesbian couples and other lgbtq people. Whether or not you are willing to acknowledge and respect that reality says more about you than it does this course.
This is funny how biased our mind is. Of course Duo Linguo is educating us and not just languages. And this is clearly an lgbt move stop saying Carrie is a male it is clearly not since we can guess the gender with arabic word construction..
People who finds this sentence normal for the cursus might be naive (because they would probably complain the same against Duo if it was a sentence against their beliefs) and people who complain about it just find or create an app with neutral sentences if it does not exist.
Complaining won't change anything now let's study !
Sorry i just got "peaced" off :))
A virus? Please provide scientific, peer-reviewed, evidence. Until then, you may want to have a check-in with yourself and how much of a good human being you think you are. Millions of people are suffering around the world and fear for their lives because of the intolerance, narrow-mindedness, prejudice and bigotry of people like you.
@Duo, remove gay campaign. You are oppressing other [healthy] people's lives !!!!!
