hot tip: instead of saying "they" when talking about a nonspecific person, try saying "he – OR she!" so as to sound like you are woke and from the 19th century

@quowel it's also an entire 3 syllables longer! it will interrupt the flow of your sentence nicely, and achieve the widely desired effect of making every woman in the room roll their eyes at you. for 0 us dollars and the cost of my respect, try "he - OR she!" today!!

@quowel Damn, this is so retro, my atari feels futuristic.

@quowel i'd stress the "she" rather than "or", and make it clear from my body language that there should be parentheses around that pair of words, as an elevated afterthought placed gently on a fairer pedestal
