This article wasn't quite what I expected from the title.
The focus seems to be more on not offending women than specifically
tailoring writing to them. If that's the case, the author of this article
seems a little behind the times. I would think that most of us have been
writing gender-neutral prose for some time now.
I would also argue that it's best to be just that - gender neutral and
non-offending. I know that what I write is read exclusively by males (unless
they're sharing this stuff outside work) because the company doesn't
currently employ any female RF engineers or equipment installers. But that
doesn't mean my style has changed. Good writing is good writing is good
Move along, there's nothing to see here.
