  • I am not doing this always but when it seems to be important to be very gender neutral (as opposed to it which is the neutral gender) I tend to use s/he.

    Ocassionally, when I decide to go with only she and then I get to an example where she makes all kinds of mistakes I start to feel bad - am I emphasizing with that phrasing that only females make those mistakes ??? - and then I go back to use he in such examples.

    In this sense Hungarian is so much simpler where there is no gender whatsoever in the language and Hebrew is much more difficult as it has both male and femal singular and plural.
