You also have to include "they" as some people have multiple
personalities, I actually met one (but only - as far as I can tell - saw
one of them) - in the early 1990's I conversed with several people on
alt.sexual.abuse.recovery, so got more insights into these types of
complexities than most people. I was doing a project in network
traffic, and got to look at some high volume usenet groups, of which
that group was one.
Don't forget GNU/Linux, & GNU/Hurd, plus many others... :-)
I'll settle for avoiding unnecessary use of gender!
