Prospective IB Monkey Pronouns - Why?

Can someone please explain to me why anyone would put their pronouns in their linkedin signature if they're trying to get a job in IB if they're clearly the same gender as their profile pic describes? 

If you want to play the game with the IB diversity system - by all means go ahead, but for people that are clearly the same gender, why would you try to annoy people? Sure, there are a number of bankers that swing left and right, but for those that swing right, I think it upsets them and would ding you consciously/subconsciously, whereas those that swing left wouldn't ding you if you didn't include your pronouns. You're just asking to aggravate a number of bankers that can decide if you get a job or not. I feel like this does more harm than good

Does anyone find this cringey? Can anyone explain this to me? 

 

I never understand why people get so worked up about this. Literally who cares, it's like putting a nickname. 

If you don't want to put them then don't. If someone forces you say no. But if someone puts just say oh okay and move on to fighting actual issues in society.
