The purpose of putting pronouns in your bio is that most trans people must do this to avoid misgendering, and if only trans people have their pronouns on display it makes it really easy to single us out whether we want to be open about it or not, which leads to harassment.
If you're cis, put your pronouns in your bio. It helps trans people stay safe online.
Not "cis man/woman" or "male/female" or "mr/ms/mrs". The pronouns. Type out the pronouns. Whatever else you add is fine, but please just take 3 seconds, type the pronouns, hit save.
If you don't, trans people have no way of knowing whether you're a safe cis person or not, and I will generally assume you are not since you haven't put forth the minimal possible effort to help protect us.

Hooray! I'm now a member of the GNOME Foundation! 🎉
Thanks for the encouragement from everyone here, and for my sponsors - you know who you are. 😊

Good news everyone! While producing almond milk does indeed use a shit-tonne of water, it's still better in every possible way than actual dairy milk, including greenhouse emissions: https://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-46654042

The Debian Project has announced that DebConf 2020 will be in Haifa, Israel. if you go to that conference, or are active in the Debian community, I'd encourage you to boycott the conference and make your opposition known.
there is a change.org petition (https://www.change.org/p/debian-community-support-palestinian-human-rights-and-cancel-debconf-israel-boycottdebian), #BoycottDebian on Twitter, and if you are on the TWC slack, a #proj-boycott-debian room
