That's almost as offensive a qualification as 'feminazi', don't you agree?

And it rather makes the gender-avoidance sound as a political-correctness undertaking which, by the way, was not the reason I objected to it. (It just sounded strange to me (and apparently a few others too))

Most likely the original author never thought about giving offence. And most likely he never did give offence.

And as I said earlier: to me it's enough that a few native speakers have said this is the way it should be.
