@jackerhack Well, incorrect usage of pronouns / gender is common while switching between languages. Doesn’t qualify as sexist bias IMHO.

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to jackerhack

@jackerhack Matter of opinion. A convention (born out of the lack of possibilities) should not be considered a bias.
