Make gender neutral way of displaying an option

Make gender neutral way of displaying an option

As I am sure I speak for 80% of your community I would like to adress the issue of displaying a grammatically wrong way of designation with a gender star in the german language. To explain the issue, in german this means you would not say actor as the  correct form, but act*ress to „include“ everyone, wich is in itself absurd and is proven to exlude foreign readers, analphabets, blind people etc. I would suggest bringing up an option where you can choose wich way of displaying the grammatical gender you want to see. The standard neutral way of saying actor for all actors or the ideological and wrong way of saying act*tress. Since this will be a democratic way of deciding, you‘ll see how many people tend to prefer the first one. 

Thank you for your consideration.

Hello!

You certainly bring up a valid point.

However, I think this should be posted in ideas,not content questions.

In Ideas , people will be able to vote for it(let's hope they will)

Then after a certain number of votes, the team will do something about it.

Thanks for reaching out 💛
