6. References to persons
The terms "he" and "she" will be
used as little as possible. They are usually unnecessary. The reader
will be referred to as "the reader" or "you"
while imaginary people will be called by there role (i.e.
"the programmer" or "the manager". When
referring to myself I will use "we". This is so that the
text will not have to be changed if others help out with writing the
book. (NOTE: I'm not looking for co-authors right now.) If I get
stuck and have to use "he" or "she" I will
opt for the latter. This is to balance up the bias of most books. I
will also ask the reader to picture this female to have two
disabilities and be of an under-represented race (i.e. an blind,
stuttering eskimo). Thank you.
