Agreed. The singular gender-neutral pronoun in English is "it".

Making up new words instead of using what we already have is ridiculous and unnecessary. Just because "it" doesn't sound like him/her/he/she, doesn't mean we have to make up new words that take the place of "it" that will "sound" better...

It's just silly.

They used to have chicken fajitas at every McDonald's. You know what? They were really good - better than the burgers and fries, and not terrible for you (plenty of veggies).

Those were the halcyon days...

I guess she must have thought, "Gee, I could pull over and wait it out with no negative consequences, or I could report myself for a felony and pay thousands of dollars more for insurance over my lifetime. Yeah, I guess the insurance company needs more money."

My high school failed us for being absent without excuse 5 times in a semester. Moreover, every 3 tardies counted as an absence.

Suffice it to say, I became adept at getting doctors notes and feigning illness.

"The passive voice should never be used."

Ironic considering the sentence itself is thereby outlawed.

It should therefore read, "Never use the passive voice."

It's a crap rule anyway...
