It has been a week since Official FAQ on gender pronouns and Code of Conduct changes is announced and made faq immmediately. Since it is 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 the code couldn't give provide a welcoming atmosphere on the network. Some questions also acknowledged there was a flood of troll comments and sentiments expressed against LGBTQ+ community.
Apart from looking this scenario only from a gender point of view, there are more posts written about Code of Conduct.
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 the parties (Who are ok with usage of pronouns and opposed to the pronouns policy and other) have some kind of problems big or small with new CoC. Many wrote answers to the announcement post and some other wrote questions or raised discussions under code-of-conduct in the form of questions expressing their feelings towards CoC and situation on after announcement is made.
Does the company want to go forward with the current Code of Conduct as it is without considering current scenario and the responses from overall SE community?
