Markus Söder wants to have gendering partially banned in Bavaria. A trade union is making fun of this - and is now itself under criticism.

Munich - A few days ago, Markus Söder announced that there would be no mandatory gendering with the CSU. "On the contrary, we in Bavaria will prohibit gendering in schools and administration," he wrote on Instagram. So it's a gender ban? This contradicts statements made by the Bavarian Prime Minister in 2021. At the time, he said: "But it is not acceptable that language is prescribed in the end."

"Where the hell are your priorities going?" Criticism of IG Metall after Söder post

For the Instagram post, IG Metall Bayern receives sporadic praise ("Thank you!", "I think it's great that the IGM can't be banned here and stands by the union for everyone!") and applause smileys. "Do your damn work and stand up for fair wages. When you're done, you can post something like this. Where the hell have your priorities gone?" asks an excited Instagram user.

IG Metall makes fun of Söder – "Better take care of your own problems"

"Better take care of your own problems...", says another person, and a third thinks: "The IGM should stay out of it." "It's better to take care of the real problems of the workers and don't try to forcibly shoot someone who doesn't even affect you," reads another comment. "Unbelievable" is how another Instagram user finds the post by IG Metall Bavaria.

On X (Twitter), the same post also made waves and was liked almost 24 times and commented over 7000 times in less than 1800 hours. There, too, the tenor is similar: "Yes, you just have to set priorities. Gendering and 347,387 new genders are more important than wage negotiations and labor law issues," someone wrote. "It's a pity that I'm not a member of IG Metall. Because of this post, I would resign immediately," it also reads. "Impressive keen eye for the target group," another person etched. There is hardly any praise on X for the contribution. (came)
