Re: (m/f) in job ads

I expect the same applies to most European languages

One of the few examples of sanity in English - we got rid of (most of) the gendered nouns.. (and have available the perfectly adequate "their" as an ungendered possessive - you rreally, really don't have to put "his/her"..)

Sadly, we also appear to be losing the ability to conjugate past tenses - one website I was reading this morning (a US website) kept using "binded" instead of the perfectly adequate "bound".
