How is this a thread and we don't have a Vingegaard vs Pogacar thread
V/P mostly duck each other outside of July so not much to talk about, these two seem to race together a lot and are much more interesting and conflicting personalities so they get a thread.

Vingegaard vs Pogacar would just be people somehow continuing to get baited by Froome posting watts graphs and not much else.

My gender is not “unknown, irrelevant, or nonbinary, or [...] needs to be concealed.”

It’s alienating to pretend otherwise.
It’s not an info easily obtainable here. I didn’t know your gender as I don’t know gender of 95% of this forum. I can deduce from account name but that’s not reliable. So I too use “they” unless I can remember a user declaring themselves a certain gender. It has nothing to do with being woke - it’s just not knowing a user that much…

For instance: what gender am I?

I know @SHAD0W93 is a "he", as we have interacted a lot over many years. For most of the veterans here, I either know their gender or that they conceal it. So I too use "they" when referring to @Libertine Seguros, but never for @Gigs_98. Not only because it's the most used gender-neutral pronoun for such cases, but because they use it too for others. Had they instead used the gender-neutral "he" for others, I'd have referred to them as him.

You can of course defend to always use "they" whenever someone hasn't declared their pronouns and link to a dictionary to show it's a valid usage, but then I don't want to hear any complaints about gender-neutral "he" used for everyone who hasn't declared his pronouns as well.

For you, my best guess would be that you are a "he".

I'd expect @RedheadDane to be annoyed if I referred to her as him, even if my usage was gender-neutral.

It's pretty clear from his posts, though.

C'mon, somone not knowing your gender used a gender neutral pronoun and you made a fuzz about it. There is literally nothing to discuss here.

Then how about a @Netserk vs @tobydawq thread? :p
Everyone knows that King Kong is no match for Godzilla.

And we already have Valverde vs. Nibali:

The gender-neutral "He".

I've had this avatar since Boonen retired, but before that more than a dozen different ones.
Sounds good, I figured “he” but had been up the last 16 hrs and played it safe with “they”. Especially considering all shift at work we have to use “they”, so it becomes a habit. I didn’t mean any ill intent by it.

I don’t remember those at all besides one maybe. Didn’t you have an album cover at one time or was that someone else?
