Mmm. [more crossposting from FB] Boils down to it's a good idea if, as a middle-aged middle-class white bloke you're writing and don't want assumptions of ignorance, it's a good idea to not write to stereotypes of what an ignorant middle-aged middle-class white bloke would might put together. Not making a token "female" character a psycho hose beast is a start. Although still holds. [/xposting]

Looking back over the Spotlight, rather than relying on half-memory, it wasn't doing badly until the "you don't even know you're doing it" and CNA bits. There's absolutely no reason Arcee would have what's effectively a reality distortion field that prompts other characters, in-universe, to use a particular pronoun.
