The proposal presented by a group of deputies in this country hopes to make the “correct” use of Spanish mandatory. “It’s a right that teaching shouldn’t be muddied with any kind of linguistic aberrations.”
In recent times, different proposals have been made known from various communities with the aim of greater social integration and the implementation of inclusive language is one of them. This is intended to represent people who don’t identify with the traditional pronouns.
Although this way of communicating has become more popular, mainly among those who support sexual diversity and want there to be neutrality when speaking, it doesn’t mean that everyone agrees with it.
In fact, there are those who not only don’t tolerate this way of expressing themselves but also strongly condemn it, so that it won’t be used again. This is the situation in Chile, where a group of members of the National Parliament have submitted a proposal to the legislative body to ban inclusive language in schools.
It’s an initiative by parliamentarians Stephan Schubert and Benjamín Moreno, who presented a project with the purpose of not allowing inclusive language in schools, according to CNN Chile. According to their statements, they intend to provide students with a space free of ideologies.
“The correct, timely and appropriate use of the Spanish language is not only a duty of teachers but also a right of parents and guardians that the education of their children isn’t clouded with any kind of linguistic aberrations that can impact the learning of Chilean children, which is why we present this initiative,” said Schubert in a statement.
In that sense, Moreno added that “starting from ideologies, it changes the way we communicate, and it starts ideologizing our children and young people from a young age. It is very important that during the educational process, regardless of the place, latitude, or the school where it is being taught, Spanish is used correctly”.
