Re: Is this just an English thing ?

As I read it, I thought the only safe thing to do now is to avoid the use of singular pronouns entirely. Use names every time.

But apparently that's not acceptable either.

Now, normally I'd be bang alongside "avoiding unnecessary offence to anyone", but frankly at this point just "ditching Stack Exchange" looks like a comparatively reasonable option. This level of linguistic policing is beyond reasonable.
