The German wikipedia page* about gender neutral language is well
over 30 k words long, and there are almost 250 bibliographic
references. It lists a number of alternatives, such as (based
on Lehrer and Lehrerin, the German words for teacher):

+ Lehrx
+ Lehry
+ Lehrerin
+ Lehrer/-in
+ Lehrer/in
+ LehrerIn
+ Lehrer(in)
+ Lehrer:in
+ Lehrer*in
+ Lehrer_in
+ Lehrer_In
+ Lehrer•in
+ Lehrkraft
+ Lehrperson
+ Lehrende
+ ...

So, by all means, join the party. They will consider all aspects
of your suggestion, and being dead serious about it.

p.s. There are even browser plug-ins, removing all of this
political correctness, making texts _much_ easier to read.
