This is nonsense. "He" has always been the default in English when the gender is unknown or not relevant.

That's what style guides have mostly previously said, and it's what people say when they want to look all clever and knowing.

But the truth is that most people, in everyday use, use "they" when they don't someone's gender.

She's either smart to have figured that out or is now very confused about how dads work. Like when your grandma calls your grandad "grandad." What, he's your grandad too? What the hell went on in this family?!

It would have been extra adorable if she'd tried to impersonate your voice when she was talking to the phone.

Yeah, they're realy under-pricing their hoard, assuming they really have it.

I wonder if they just compromised enough accounts via other means in the hopes of passing light scrutiny and $75,000 was the most they thought they might possibly get away with asking for without anyone bothering to take a closer look.
