    I've wondered about this also. I often just use their when an otherwise 'technically gramatically correct' convention would be used...

    It would have been nice if we had gender neutral pronouns in English, because I'm not actually allowed to use "they" for a singular subject, and righting "he/she" gets tiresome.

    However, I don't think it's very likely that we can get the English language to take any such changes. People simply won't adapt.

    I just say "he" and hope my teacher isn't a feminist bitch. Although I'll typically use "one."

    Or herstory (instead of history), lol. I don't appreciate when people get all riled up about some word that doesn't even etymologically refer to any gender distinction.

    I'm not a big fan of the he/she thing, so I usually mix up he and she throughout the paper (or whatever it is I'm writing). Or use one, although this can come across as silly if it's overused.

    This is one of those things that bugs me.
    You can't spell "justice" without ISTJ.
