    It assumes that all human beings are male by referring to human beings as he. It's easy to either pluralize and use they or use he or she. I do it all the time.

    •  Not everyone agrees with that approach. (0+ / 0-)

      Some find it awkward, and others may not be aware that it is an acceptable alternative. Not everyone considers it standard English. English isn't like some other languages that have a standard singular gender-neutral pronoun.

        I still don't know why he decided to post this patriarchal diary here.

        And doing what's right by including everyone when we speak is more important, clearly, than being agreed with or using standard English.
