Examples of gender-neutral language in the CORPES XXI and METAPRES

Gender-neutral language is a linguistic tool that aims at promoting the inclusion of all social groups without sex or gender-identity based discrimination. However, its inclusion in the daily usage of the Spanish language encounters on a regular basis opponents and resistance. As a matter of fact, it is possible to find features in the language that, used under specific circumstances, might prove to be sexist, nevertheless, the Real Academia Española is reluctant to include gender-neutral techniques to the language norm.
