@cassidycodes cassidycodes commented Apr 15, 2018


I'd like to propose a couple of changes documentation to make it more inclusive of trans and non-binary individuals. I have changed examples that previously used a user's gender to use attributes like favorite_color or subscribed_to_newsletter instead.

Other Information

The Rails Code of Conduct advises to use "welcoming and inclusive language" and this PR helps the documentation continue to evolve to be in line with the Code of Conduct.

If any changes to this PR are deemed necessary, please add them as extra commits. This ensures that the reviewer can see what has changed since they last reviewed the code. Due to the way GitHub handles out-of-date commits, this should also make it reasonably obvious what issues have or haven't been addressed. Large or tricky changes may require several passes of review and changes.

This repository is being automatically checked for code quality issues using Code Climate. You can see results for this analysis in the PR status below. Newly introduced issues should be fixed before a Pull Request is considered ready to review.

Please see the contribution instructions for more information.
