I was enjoying your PostgreSQL when I came across this statement...

"Possibly, your site administrator has already created a database for your
use. He should have told you what the name of your database is. In that case
you can omit this step and skip ahead to the next section."

While something as minor as using a male pronoun in reference to a site
administrator might seem like no big deal, the reality is that tiny actions
add up to create major societal problems, like the severe lack of gender
equality in the tech world.

I'd love to see this and other instances corrected to state "he or she" or
"she or he."
