We have a large mix of orientations and genders in the membership here. Most of us here aren't biased gender-wise, as far as advice we give, but it is sometimes helpful to know the genders and orientations of the people involved. One, so we know who we're addressing; two, it's just easier language-wise; and three, it could play into other factors that might add to the problems at hand (like prejudices people might have to deal with). Besides, pronouns are a useful feature of the English language. You could also use aliases or initials, which is what most of us do here.
