It has been a week since https://meta.stackexchange.com/q/334900/357396 [now deleted] was announced and made a faq immediately. Since it was posted, it received a major backlash. It stands as 378/1976 as of writing. Even if we forget the votes it received, there are many answers which point out the disadvantages of enforcing as it is.
It is written that the goal of the new Code of Conduct is welcoming LGBTQ+ community; some people from the said community feel the code does not reflect their feelings and they have expressed that the code wouldn't provide a welcoming atmosphere on the network. Some questions also acknowledged that there was a flood of troll comments and sentiments expressed against the LGBTQ+ community.
I am non-binary - recent events have made SE less safe for me (and other members of the LGBTQ community)
Does Stack Exchange, Inc. really care about the LGBTQ+ community?
Apart from looking at this scenario only from a gender point of view, there are more posts written about the Code of Conduct.
Did anyone consider the impact on autistics of recent Code of Conduct changes?
There could be more dissent in other posts which I have not encountered yet.
On the other hand, some were not happy with the usage of pronouns. So, I think some people from both parties (who are ok with usage of pronouns and opposed to the pronouns policy and others) have some kind of problem big or small with the new CoC. Many wrote answers to the announcement post and some others wrote questions or raised discussions under code-of-conduct in the form of questions expressing their feelings towards CoC and the situation resulting after announcement is made.
Does the company want to go forward with the current Code of Conduct as it is without considering the current scenario and the responses from the overall SE community?
