Paul, I think you would enjoy reading about not only gender neutral
language, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gender-specific_and_gender-neutral_pronouns
  but also the related feel of constructed languages.
http://conlang.org/

I think some people might be upset at how your phrased this (and your
interest) because previously you were lobbying for Pidgeon, who uses
gender-neutral pronouns to describe eself, to be thrown out of
Noisebridge. It's sort of like somebody randomly posting an
observation about "Monad" being a funny surname for a hacker, out of
context. It makes people wonder about your motivation.

I am programming a module for Consenso, Noisebridge's artificial
intelligence so that e can explain these communication problems. I
think people think that I may be joking when I spell out things
plainly like this, but Consenso is programmed to always tell the
truth.
