That, really, is all I can say here.
Honestly, I have more of a problem having to declare a gender, or use a full name, than being called a made-up word, with possible male-overtones. Fortunately, most of the time, the former are required.
But really, I would hope that people could focus on something more productive, and helpful to Ubuntu, than things like this..
