What the hell is up with those "non-gender-specific" pronouns going around LJ lately? Case in point:

http://www.livejournal.com/talkpost.bml?journal=damnportlanders&itemid=363011

Who cares about trying to keep someone's gender hidden? It just makes the people one's talking to confused. And in my case, annoyed. That atheist guy who's going public about this sort of thing is silly. (And not because he's atheist, because he's trying to make non-gender-specific pronouns!)

Weird, man. This guy is a friend of a guy/girl who is/was dating the sister of my former roommate.

Re:
That's what *I* thought, but not in such unspecific pronouns. :)
