WOW! This entire post is so insensitive and racist. You are obviously very privileged. You cannot speak for the oppressed students at Princeton.

I am really upset right now after reading your hateful words.I am starting to feel my PTSD flaring up. I just want justice, social justice. This was such a magroaggression. This entire experience is going to traumatize me for quite some time.

I can't....even.... I just can't...

Well, you could always both rebel and comply by referring to everyone as 'it'. Can't get anymore gender-neutral than that.


They is both singular and plural, it is only singular.

No, it isn't. "They" is only plural. If you do not know the gender, the default is "he" or "one" when applicable; saying something like "one of the kids went to the park, then they played on the swing" would otherwise be pretty unspecific.
