An user has written a patch that fixes the Vim/NeoVim docs in order to make them inclusive, removing the he/him references and using non-gender pronouns, using the Google's style guide. The community rejected this, by being more problematic than the current docs.

The user tried to push this on Vim and NeoVim.

Vim: github.com/vim/vim/pull/6535
NeoVim: github.com/neovim/neovim/pull/

Also, another user pushed the same for SpaceVim, currently non-resolved and the last frontier.

github.com/SpaceVim/SpaceVim/i

I won't say nothing in favor or against the community decision. But their pleadings against the inclusive docs path, are bullshit.

Also I'm not a Vim power user and I don't feel part of their community. I use both NeoVim and VisualStudio Code, as I use Linux and Windows too (gaming reasons, don't blame me), but for a free software community, I think inclusion is one of the main and more important points, and they are losing a really nice opportunity to switch to year 2020.
