I do not understand how not using the pronouns he, his, and him to
include females would in any way diminish males. Actually, it would
seem to be just the opposite.

Although I do not often use "he" generically, I feel duty bound to defend
those who do. Minorities who are declared to be acceptable targets
for discimination should be defended. Since men have been so declared,
I stand up for men. In the early years of feminism, I stood up for
women. But now that the feminist nomenklatura has taken over, they
have become the new oppressors.
