Re: Why is it even an issue on SE?

Good luck with names that in some languages are female, while in others are male... (i.e. Andrea and Nicola are male name in Italian) you'll need to know far more about the person to use the correct pronoun. And then you wold have to ask them about their gender preferences which could imply sexual preferences - which are also sensitive data under EU privacy laws...

Anyway the Pandora's box (for those who still remember Greek mythology....) is open... enjoy.
