    Default Abbreviations

    I propose we should abbreviate he/she/it to s/h/it from now on when the gender of something you're talking about it is unknown - certainly quicker to say in any case

    Or you could say s/he/it which sounds like some strange accent.

    why not just make it S-hit? that would be better, and make leagues less sense.

    Actually, you can just use the gender neutral pronouns instead of being profane like SOME people.

    Gender Neutral Pronouns

    He/She = zie

    Him/Her = hir

    See how that's better?

    Signature by rubah. I think.

    Talking about things with an unknown gender doesn't happen often so I think it isn't necessary to abbreviate it.
