Computer science student from Luxembourg, currently living in Germany. I'm a rather militant atheist and rationalist, and don't believe in the preservation of cultural legacy for the sake of "tradition" (which is basically just a nice word for old and unreasonable cultural legacy)
Technology, computer science
Maybe we should stop trying to preserve the way the world is and trust that we'll make the right decisions when the time is right. The world is getting more and more connected, and maybe there's just no raison d'être for our old constructs. In my opinion, the idea of gender should be abolished. If you see me posting in a general manner using male pronouns, never mind - I'm talking about humans in general. Using his/her is just far too tedious, and most people get tipped off more by an unexplained 'her' than by an unexplained 'his'.
