    Just add the thing natively already, a lot of us already use a browser extension for this - how hard can it be for twitch to add it?

    Because honestly? Being a woman on the internet is already hard enough and it gets double annoying when someone calls you a dude or he/him all the time just because you use a name that's not gendered at all and by that I mean, that it's a word or a name that has no gender attached to it. Unfortunately we live in a weird world where people default to male all the time. But women on the internet exist just as much as non-binary people.
    Respecting others doesn't gravely injure you or whatever, it does not inconvenience you despite what some might like you to believe. It's just a common courtesy. You wouldn't go out in the street either and address a random woman with 'hey dude' or 'Sir' either.
