comment A non-gendered word for fishermen
It may not be necessary, but serves as a direct response to some comments saying, "Just use fishermen. Don't drink the cool-aid." That cool-aid would be the cool-aid of believing that men and women are equally able and should be equally represented in our language. The very spirit of my original inquiry.

comment A non-gendered word for fishermen
This is perhaps the answer that best matches the spirit of the question. A replacement for people who catch fish that honors the fact that men and women both work in the fishing industry and applies to both professional and sport fishers, and doesn't sound whack. Fisher, for instance, brings to mind the Bible's fishers of men.

comment Should the comma be in italics?
I disagree. This is a relevant question and more likely to be noticed if the punctuation is more complicated. See the accepted answer for great examples. Honestly, I never understand why some people ask legit questions and then others observe, "That's nor important." Well, perhaps not to you, but clearly to the OP.

comment What is a non-gendered synonym for “macho”?
This gets closest to the OP's question. One-upmanship encapsulates the competitive, but petty dispute over who is better or had it harder.

comment Word that describes being “patriotic” for something that is not a country?
Thank you for this clarification. It is in the US where having zeal alone is often used to condemn someone, usually by other zealots no less.
