No I think someone 'biased' (you're not biased, you're impacted by
this and therefore have a weighty opinion) is exactly what I was
hoping to solicit.

I think you're right; I think it would be better if we could amend the
brief bios we have there to (optionally) include a pronoun.

Some of _those_ become a little clunky depending on how we do it.
Does anyone have suggestions for how to change 'Tor Browser
developer.' for example?  "They are a Tor Browser developer." seems a
bit odd. "Bob is Tor Browser developer, and his interests/experience
include blah"?
