After the Carnival-joke of the CDU-Boss Annegret Kramp-karrenbauer, in front of the Stockach-based fool's court toilets for intersex people, the Association of lesbians and Gays in the Union (LSU) has demanded an apology. "Of course an apology is due," said the Chairman of the Association Alexander Vogt on Monday on the radio program "SWR up to date". "That is what we expect." In the carnival there are limits.
"Political Correctness or not, some may find the Yes exaggerated," said Vogt. "But such boundaries must be clear. It is also about other minorities, no more jokes." That Kramp-Karrenbauer was not out of bad intention, don't make the thing better. "If that happens lightly, it is also a sign of how it is commonly spread this way of Thinking."
He was expecting now that there is a clarifying discussion with the CDU leader, said Vogt: "I hope that we get the offer to talk about as before a short time horizon."
The CDU leader had said in her appearance before the Stockach-based fool's court last Thursday, toilets for intersex people to be "for the men who still don't know whether or not you may still have to stand when you pee or sit. – In-between – is this toilet."
The sentence had provoked in the chamber of laughter – now he's in Germany for outrage. SPD Deputy Stegner spoke in the "image"show "The right questions" of a "failed carnival joke". The Deputy FDP Chairman, Dürr said of the broadcast: "That was a stupid joke and you should apologize, maybe."
"deckle talk to animals I don't"
government spokesman Steffen Seibert did not want to comment on Monday on the matter: "deckle talk I will not comment." He pointed out that the Federal government had strengthened the rights of inter-sex people by law.
The Federal constitutional court had urged the Federal government until the end of 2018, a third gender in the birth register. The Bundestag and the Bundesrat decided in December, a change in the law, according to which "divers" can be registered as a third gender. If a child can be assigned after the birth, neither the female nor the male gender and the other gender development does not allow this, it should be possible to change the entry in the birth register at a later date.
