I am implying that it is all about objectives. Someone that does not want to learn how to defend against chokes that use a gi to the point that he is pissed about it he should just fucking train only in no-gi.
Saying that training without a gi makes your game always inferior and tell people to not pussy out is unnecessary. Guy do not want to use a gi do not tell him that he is a pussy for it as people might say too that forbidding scissors takedown is a pussy move and that everyone should start telling IBJJF to allow it because fighting without it is a pussy ass shit.
Do the gi makes you learn faster and get more positional control? Yes. Is it worth so much to the point that a non competitor should care about chokes that need your opponent to be wearing a hard jacket if he do not like them so much to want to stop? No.
