Certainly nothing political or ideological, but I've have edited questions and answers on occasions to be gender-neutral as I've seen or picked up at some other SE sites (There might be some policy for this but I wouldn't know) when it makes unnecessary gender implications. (e.g. The sort of thing assuming that males have to be pilots and females have to be flight attendants, which is certainly not true).
I then read Ralph J's answer (which I have no objections about) which again implies a gender I got to wonder if there is some policy about it. It recollects a real story so it has real characters, but then again does it add to the quality of the answer? Objectively speaking it should not be of any importance, the question is about Flight Attendants becoming pilots.
In this case it's breaking stereotypes so I don't think it's bad or anything, but it still got me wondering what other people were thinking on this topic. It would be nice to have some ideas when this comes up, as I suspect it will sooner or later.
When is it appropriate to format a question to not imply a gender and likewise when is it not?
