Third person gender neutral pronouns: which do you like to use? I'm a big supporter of the third person singular "they" as a gender neutral pronoun, citing its long history of use, natural introduction into the language, and similar grammatically acceptable constructions in other languages. However, I'm bound by university guidelines to use alternate "he" and "she," which I consider tolerable. What do you use/which do you think is the best option?
Ok grammar nerds, debate!
