The word in question was "they" not "he".<quoted text>
he isnt gender-neutral: Some claim that singular they is unnecessary because he is gender-neutral, and that this whole kerfuffle about singular they being in any way good or useful only came about when arrogant ideologues began recasting English into heavy artillery to defend the borders of the New Feminist state.
If you really think that he is gender-neutral, you ought to find nothing wrong with the following sentences:
(3a) At the funeral, everyone was dressed to the nines, each wearing his swankest tie or nicest dress.
(3b) Is it your brother or your sister who can hold his breath for four minutes?
Just admit you`re wrong and we`ll all believe you have a job...deal?
