Re: Surely it's just a bit of civility

This is correct. Monica said she is a professional writer who writes gender-neutral by default. She pointed out that on SE we rarely talk about other people. We talk directly (you) or use names or refer to specific posts (links). The response in TL was that this wasn't good enough and gender-neutral language is misgendering. Which sounds crazy.
