Re: Can we ditch the silly political correctness in reg articles

That's not political correctness. It's just not. You have a misogyny problem.

99.9% of hackers are not men. Most surveys put it at 85% at most.

So you'd expect to see at least 1/8 articles referring to "she". But then given that the human population is 50% women, why should the default be "he"?

And it's not going to get any better all the time there are grumpy, sexist trolls like you in the industry.
