Incidentally I come from Spain and female:D). If I was to be referred to as Ubuntero, it certainly would feel a bit odd. Words ending in –ero refer to a male person. Words ending in –era refer to a female person. Words ending in –ista have a neutral position.

If this is a word that has been extensively used for the past 4 years and it is already a staple word, then maybe it is not worth going through the hassle of changing it. Having said that, I would have to agree that Ubuntista would have been a better word and given the circumstances, a more grammatically correct word.

It is the place to consult for Spanish grammatical questions.
