Inclusivity in Duolingo (A thank you to Duolingo)
in·clu·siv·i·ty /ˌinklo͞oˈsivədē/ noun the practice or policy of including people who might otherwise be excluded or marginalized, such as those who have physical or mental disabilities and members of minority groups. "you will need a thorough understanding of inclusivity and the needs of special education pupils"
I love seeing the inclusivity in Duolingo. It makes me smile. There's "The Honeymoon" story and plenty of senteces that include the LGBTQ+ community. As a teenager, it makes me feel like the world is slowly changing. I also love the Muslim charcacter. I love the repersentation of minorities on this site and the different cultures. It's a beauatiful thing.
Thank you, Duolingo.
Why must we fight over this? I wish people would just kindly state their opinion.(Thanks PresleyJen) I hate it when people shove their idea's into my face. I think there is a lot of hypocrisy in the world, and we all need to calm down over other opinions. I always try to respect other people's opinions, even when I disagree and I think we should all try to do the same. There is no need to force our opinions on others (not blaming you PresleyJen, referring to the hate comments).
We all need to calm down. Even if we disagree with another comment. :)
Please don't hate on PresleyJen guys. She's my friend, and she's speaking her mind. This is a time when we need to be there for each other, not put each other down. Do I agree with everything, no. However, God loves the person, regardless of what they believe. It's time we all rise up in unity and not let these differences come between us all. Love you guys, and you are all in my prayers.
P.S. Shoutout to URAVERAGEBOI, I'm praying for you bro. You keep being you. Don't let others comments get you down. God loves you. :)
Duolingo is ahead of the curve. This may throw some folks for a loop, but that's okay, they are reflecting the real world. I'm a native English speaker, and the role gender plays in Español is fascinating and frustrating. Throw in real world gender issues and I'm sure this is creating an even more challenging experience for some folks. Are the stories the same for all languages. Cudos!
Hello! I am a native Spanish speaker, and while Spanish is a very gendered language, there are alternitaves! Instead of "o" or "a", you can use "e". (pronounced "eh") This creates a gender-neutral way to refer to someone. (ex. Elle es mi hermane.) Though this has not yet been made "official", I'm very eager about it!
