Can we remove wrong perception of "cowboy" from this answer?

Cowboy coding seems a perfectly reasonable thing to say. There was no implication that it was an actual cowboy on a horse. Complaining about it seems a bit 'non-cowboy' if anything.

(Done) Rename maternity-leave tag to parental-leave

The answer was edited some hours ago by one of our Mods, and the problematic content removed. It now does not contain the cowboy part, which was a bit unnecessary IMHO. I'd say that the problem is ...
