After the abolition of the change, activists also want male first names, says David Novotná

“I personally find male names nicer. More sonic. Therefore, I do not understand why I could not use a nice Czech male name. We do not live in the Middle Ages, but in the modern 21st century. Times are elsewhere and women are now fully emancipated and as valid members of society as men. The option of choosing whether to give the surname suffix “-ová” is just the beginning. We also ask for the possibility of using male names, “says Terezie Novotná, who calls herself David Novotná and as soon as possible she has her name officially changed from Terezia to David. For the time being, Novotná will keep her surname in the feminine form, but if she can use the masculine name, she is also preparing to change her surname.

Ms. David Novotná is not alone in demanding equal access to male names regardless of gender.

“Gender is a surviving concept today. It doesn’t matter to him. Men and women are identical beings. That’s why I don’t understand why I have to worry about a woman’s name when I could be Honza, for example. For practical reasons, because male names tend to be shorter. Consider that there are a number of names that have male and female mutations. The woman is always longer. That’s you, Jan, Jana. Kamil, Kamila. Dominik, Dominika… so I could go on. That one extra letter seems unfair to me, and besides, I, like Jana, can’t use a name in the form of Honza. Why can John be Honza and John cannot be Honza? Is that any justice? ”Annoyed Jana Novák, a member of the Pindík or pipina movement, we are an equal family.

“I’m not a fanatical feminist who hates men, I just want the same rights and opportunities as men. My husband understands this and supports me. He’s a big fan of female emancipation, see, darling, “Jana Novák turned to the stunned and frightened man she had brought on a leash.

„A..yes. Everything you say, ”the man stammered in a timid voice.

“My husband is a sweetheart. He understands the difficult destiny of us women, and in order to support me, he adopted my surname together with the suffix “-ová”. Introduce yourself, darling, “Mrs. Novák urged her husband.

“Marek Novakova,” the man said.

“My husband is a clear example of how he can. He weaned off and partly carried two of our children and now she takes care of the household and supports me in my activities in the fight for women’s rights, “she stroked the face of her husband, who first instinctively flinched.

As can be seen, equal access to all names, including those of men, is also supported by some men, so it is possible that in a few years of normal communication we will not know if the person is talking about a man or a woman, and maternity hospitals will be full of Petrů Nováků and Honzů Leisure time.

Wild Duck is fake news about real events that didn’t happen, but they could, however unbelievable they sound. But the truth is that the problem of tilting is surprisingly moving the world.

Tilting does not express ownership, the linguist rejects. “It contributes to the economy of expression,” he saysVIDEO redakce Blesk
