Inclusive pronoun, iel, added to French Dictionary

It's caused an uproar in France and some neighboring countries, but I decided to post this in "uplifting news" over "news" because I find it affirming and a step in a good direction.

I found the article a good read. I actually found it comical - the quotes from the opposition sound like so much hot air to me, while the response from the General Director of Le Petit Robert dictionary which explains that a dictionary is not political nor does it tell people what words they should use; it simply provides a reference for the current meaning of words that people are using resonates as: iel is here, it's queer, get used to it, lol.

Oops - forum moderator, would you please be so kind as to fix a typo in the subject line? That was meant to be a comma after "iel" instead of an apostrophe.

I heard a report on the news this morning that there is a move afoot in Germany to change to ungendered language.
