    Default The real reason why Britain left the EU

    The EU is not woke! We English speakers should cancel French, German etc. as long as they insist on having only two or three grammatical genders. How would you feel if you were forced to choose between le, la or der, die, das?

    As usual, English is ahead of them all. Like German it had three genders in Anglo-Saxon times. Now it has just one for everything, which is really progressive.

    P.S. Somebody is going to tell me that Hungarian and Finnish have no grammatical gender. Well, they can leave the EU too!

    There are a lot of reich wingnuts who say, "there are only two genders, that is a scientific fact." Well then, which gender is a chair, or a table? The number of genders is a linguistic/cultural question. Some cultures have two, three, or even more. The most popular number is three: male, female, and neutral... But there can be ones for females under the age of reproduction, males animals who have been gelded, etc.
    Daniel Patrick Moynihan said it best, "You are entitled to your opinion. But you are not entitled to your own facts."
    Paul Begala, "Politics is show business for ugly people."
    Stephen Colbert, "Reality has a well known liberal bias."
