At the risk of ad nauseum:
I sort of agree with the idea of "Splunge" as a solution for the
he-she-they problem, although it's too humorous to actually use. I find
the idea of creative spelling to be a trick not worthy of attention
(theye, theire, etc.).
Anyone recall seeing that mail from the "European Language Commission"
regarding the standardization of English spelling. Zat vas reely funy.
I propoze ziz az a solushun: Ve vill kall ze "utrum" von "seyth." Zat
vay ve kan all be kontent. Heer's an eksampel:
Somvon is bozering me in ze offis. I vill furst komplane about seyth,
zen i vill su seyth.
