Honestly, I write “he.”
We’ve taking things to far when we can’t use he for a generic pronoun anymore, or he for animals we don’t know the gender of. The his and/or her thing drives me nuts.
It’s like the chairman thing. While I understand it’s possibly vaguely sexist, we all belong to the race of man. It doesn’t always just mean male.
And, it’s a lot easier and less stuffy sounding to just use “he.” 😀
