because homophobia in football is far from over. (english subtitles available in the video!)

Marcus Wiebusch - Der Tag wird kommen (The day will come)
Marcus Wiebusch (some of you may know him as the singer of Kettcar) released a music video for his song Der Tag wird kommen a few days ago. The song and video deal with homophobia in football and detail the struggle a gay professional footballer has to cope with.
Even if you don’t understand German, the video alone is definitely worth your time!
please refer to my answer below re: dirndls
well some of us didn’t get a choice, a lot of young people aren’t taught the dialect anymore, we can understand it, because our grandparents speak it exclusively, but our parents spoke standard german with us instead of the dialect, so the only thing surviving are region-specific words etc
my potential children for example won’t be able to understand the dialect their great-grandparents spoke simply because I cannot teach them
well there’s a lot of trachten all over. the region I am from originally doesn’t really have a tracht anymore and my favorite favorite favorite trachten, the ones from amrum and föhr, I’d never wear because they’re not ‘mine’, I have no connection and no right to them
also man you’re so lucky I am answering this & not urania iirc she quite likes her accent/dialect
ok but consider all these people at karneval trying to speak kölsch
see I consider the dirndl so commercialized at this point that I wouldn’t feel bad about wearing one whereas I would never ever wear my actual favorite tracht
but a dirndl? come on you guys if the rest of germany has to deal with everyone in the world thinking we’re all bavarian at least let us have this
I’m guessing one looks cheap & one doesn’t but honestly I don’t actually care
