"She"

In my last post I call the owl a "she" because I'm a feminist. And people, in general, use "he" as a default. And it shouldn't be the default. Women make up 51% of the world population. Default should be "she".

Hey! "Woman" includes "man" in the word. "She" includes "he." It's only logical, and much more simple, for the feminine to be the default. I've used s/he for some time. That works pretty well too...gets folks to pause for a moment. Not all bad.

I use 'she' all the time. And people I work with say, "Um, this is great but...isn't it wrong to use 'she' here, I mean, it's not right?" And I say, no, sexist dumb ass, it is (in fact) grammatically correct.
