Amid all the debate, I find it interesting that Lourdes Flores, a South American woman, actually has a shot at the presidency of Peru. Might it be possible that the difficulty we are having with the "singular they" emphasizes how strange we find male/female inclusiveness?

I'm not putting this very well: in (corporate) cultures accustomed to assigning roles based on skill and aptitude, not gender, is this still a problem?
