This answer is misleading. You present two possible explanations for using the tag when in reality there is at least one more: people who disagree with how Monica was dismissed AND disagree with the CoC in that they do not wish to be dictated to in terms of how they speak. I am happy to use a pronoun such as "they" when gender is indeterminate, but I am not willing to use a made-up pronoun just because a person asks me to. It's he, she, or they. I'm not using anything else, and that's ok. I am not doing anything wrong by making this choice, and SE should respect that.
I used a custom flag to say that the following two comments from the same user should also be deleted, for the comments were all on the same spirit:
The idea that people are being foced to use people's "correct" genders is your personal viewpoint, not a fact. I disagree that a person's correct gender is "whatever they want to be called". No. It's he, she, or they. If I say "they", that's always correct. If someone chooses to get mad about it, they do not understand the English language, which is not my problem.
Basically, I refuse to cater to who are essentially children saying "look at me!" We're all out here eating a giant shit sandwich. No one deserves special treatment because of how they feel inside.
On top of going against the CoC on gender issues, I also feel those comments are rude and abusive. However, the flag was just declined without further comment, no pun intended.
Is this kind of commenting allowed in WB?
