The official Gearbox bio for the character refers to FL4K and "they," meaning neuter and non-gendered. So at least this isn't a big fluff-up over some ridiculous trans robot.

Apparently the SJWs in charge of the forum moderation think calling a gender-neutral object "he" is offensive. That is a problem in and of itself.

s*** like this proves that we live in a society where things have gotten so easy that we invent things to rebel over. Imagine thinking that the gender of a fictitious robot in a video game is a bannable offense. It's madness. I usually scoff at the "first world problems" meme but, holy s***, this is really where we're at.

Lmao.
That's ridiculous.

For example, in my native language we never refer to animals, robots or even everyday objects with "it", because every noun has a gender.

For example keyboard has female gender, mouse noun is male gender etc.

Then someone with limited English knowledge comes in there and gets banned?
Lmao.
