So many sexes so little time ....

The video site: Face of a Dying Nation where this video clip was published in June this year, introduced it thusly:

AfD politician Steffen Königer ridiculed the Greens in the Brandenburg Parliament for their proposal of a "Campaign for Acceptance of Gender and Sexual diversity, Self-Determination and against Homo and Trans*-phobia in Brandenburg" as well as "Giving equal rights and societal equality for LGBTTQQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual, Trans, Two-spirit, Queer, Questioning) people in Brandenburg" by quoting 60 of the Genders considered by Leftists to be actual identities - they're straight from Face book's Gender option list.

He finished his introduction of almost 3 minutes by stating that his party rejects the proposal.

Some Genders have different names in German, so I translated them literally.

Full List of Genders, official English version:

Gentlemen, ladies, agender, androgyne, androgynous, bigender, cisgender, cis female, cis male, cis men, cis women, cisgender females, cisgender males, cisgender men, cisgender women, females to males, FTM, gender fluid, gender nonconforming, gender questioning, gender variant, genderqueer, intersex, males to females, MTF, neither, neutrois, non-binary, other, pangender, trans, trans*, trans females, trans* females, trans males, trans* males, trans men, trans* men, trans people, trans* people, trans women, trans* women, transfeminine, transgender, transgender females, transgender males, transgender men, transgender people, transgender women, transmasculine, transsexual, transsexual females, transsexual males, transsexual men, transsexual people, transsexual women, people of spirit, womyn, womyn*, two-spirit, three-spirit, four-spirit, Other

German humour, such as it is, seems to come from the conservative side these days...I have certainly not heard/seen any funny (as in hahaha) stuff from from the left lately.  A relatively new German party, the Alternative für Deutschland ADF is anti-Merkel-Muslim-'Refugee'-flood and  is, unlike Merkel's party today, truly conservative. And therefore they are, of course,  defamed as extreeeeeeeeeeeme rrrrright-wing party, and yes the accusation of "Nazi" too is thrown around like confetti, just as the Zeitgeist in Merkel's Germany demands it. The expression for this is: Die Nazikeule schwingen (swinging the Nazi club).
