    You see! Gender neutral terms. I love saying "I told you so".

    Oh! is it true!? @mheredge

    A survey by dog food manufacturer tails.com has revealed that dog owners spend more on their pets than on their own children.

    I am already using it. I think this is a good approach to discourage the gender stereotyping as well.

    “The gender-neutral pronoun ‘they’ should be used as opposed to ‘he’ or ‘she’, and the pronoun ‘them’ as opposed to ‘him’ or ‘her’.

    I have always tended to use they and them, regardless of whether the they are male or female.

    It wouldn't surprise me in the least tof hear dog owners spend more on their animals than their children as the Brits can be very OTT about their pets. I met a girl a few weeks ago who spends all her time working for dog shelters and 'save the dog' organisations, her travel plans revolving around where she can go to help dogs. I think she's a bit barking mad, not pun intended.
