La Ley de Möller es un adagio de internet que trata de temas de conversaciones de género y lenguaje. El texto de la ley es el siguiente:

As a gender discussion continues, the probability that an appeal for the use of Spivak pronouns will occur approaches one. At such a point, the discussion is forfeited and must cease on the spot.

Spivak pronouns (and sie and hir as well) are seen by some as a sort of straw man for gender and language discussions. Since they are such highly contentious constructions, bringing them into the argument is considered a faux pas unless the discussion originally intended to discuss gender pronouns in language.

The law was coined July 18, 2003, on the WikiEN-l mailing list, following this thread. Its name was taken from Erik Möller. It's commonly spelled either Möller or Moeller; on the other hand, Moller's law is a misspelling used on the mailing list. Compare Godwin's Law, which this is designed to be analogous towards.
