While I know that the use of the gender neutral “their” has become accepted, I still find it off putting. I don’t mind the use of “she” and “her” in messages. So, while I know a feature like this may not be used by many, it would be nice if I could get messages without the use of “their”. I am a singular woman who writes code and quite happy about it.
For example, I saw this message:
Opened their first pull request on GitHub.
It would be nicer to see:
Opened her first pull request on GitHub
