    • “s/he” is probably the best option. the only problem is that it is still pushing the binary view of gender as the always critical distinguishing signifier of an individual.

      I also personally come at the issue as a post-structuralist, so i believe the socially-constructed binary inherently brings with it a socially-constructed privileging of one term over the other. But that is whole other ball of wax. 😉

  1. I use “they”. Language is fluid and constantly changing and I’m okay with that. Using “they” makes my life easier and I’m always okay with that..

  2. Tho it still sounds a little awkward to me, using “they” as a gender-neutral 3rd person singular pronoun is gaining ground. I like it, and so does the American Dialect Society (2015 Word of the Year).
