Ok, then let me express it in a different way:I'm not sure what you mean by impervious to this pronoun storm". Of course WR is part of the bigger culture of language and it's usage.
I hope WR will not utilize the same tactics used by other American companies (like LI, the example brought by Nanon) and continues to evade the pronoun-centered issues currently taking the US by storm.
Why? Because this site caters to an international community that should not be forced to adhere to American idiosyncrasies.
In the US, that is.Pronouns of all kinds are (sorry) here to stay. Once someone has decided they're a ze, there'll be no going back to he or she for ze. It's a done deal.
Good luck trying to convince someone to use that pronoun or address them as 'ze' in a country/culture/society what this sort of thing is taboo.
Let us once and for all be convinced that no matter how much we may discuss things, the ultimate decision as to what happens in WR resides/rests on the owner's shoulders.Let us once and for all be convinced that the proposal to specify one's pronouns in WR is not destined to be required. People will not be coerced into revealing their gender(s), and there will be no subtle pressure to "conform" and tell all. Far from it: this would be an optional, write-in field where a person can specify or not their pronouns. If you consider it exclusive, offensive, or confusing, move on to the next field (profession)
He'll read all we write... but the ultimate choice is solely his.
