Gender neutral pronoun

From Teflpedia

A gender-neutral pronoun is a personal pronoun that is gender neutral and so does not mark grammatical gender.

Most English pronouns are gender neutral. The gender-neutral pronoun sets in English include the first person singular (I, me, my, mine, myself), first person plural (we, us, our, ours, ourselves), second person singular (you, you, your, yours, yourself) and second person plural (you, you, your, yours, yourselves), which are all dual gender, plus the third person plural (they, them, their, theirs, themselves), which is common gender.

The ones that aren’t are gendered pronouns, third person singular masculine set (he, him, his, his, himself) and third person singular feminine set (she, her, her, hers, herself). Because of the value judgement that gender neutrality is socially positive, some people prescribe using gender neutral pronouns, particularly singular they and generic they in their lieu.
