Just wanted to say that I was put off by how you ALWAYS use ‘he’ or ‘him’ throughout your latest book and every recent article or interview I’ve read by you.

I’m a guy -not that it matters, and I thought it looked very backwards and like a ‘bad old brainwashed habit’ that I’d suggest you try break.

I’m not trying to be politically correct. Just fair. Specifically what you so thankfully speak about and fight against are dogmas riddled with hatred and domination of women. And to see you ALWAYS use ‘He’ when you refer to unspecific people is disappointing to me.

I think Dawkins a few years back noticed this about himself (or was told) and tries to use a gender neutral word or often use ‘she’ to counterbalance history.

Please think about doing the same ok? Also… all of us guys. We all should think about this idea. I catch myself using ‘he’ for no good reason all the time.
hell my wife does it more than me. And that’s just sad we were raised like that and have to break a stupid sexist habit.
