Transfering stack between WinXP and MacOS9

I don't know if he/she/it was the same person who decided that but I 
bet he/she/it was actually a he/she/it and not a he/she/it.

Seriously, when doing presentations that are going to be in english but 
presented in foreign speaking countries I always am asked to replace he 
or she with he/she or him and her with him/her etc. in all of my 
presentations.

It would be nice to have a neutral way of identifying the person with 
out gender. This would be politically correct now a days. FBOW (for 
better or worse)
