Step down as President, but stay on as a Director?


Guest Timothy Warner

You would prefer "they"?? 

 

No. But there are usually ways to re-phrase the sentence to avoid such awkward locutions.

 

What I do object to is using "they" or "he/she" or "s/he" when the gender of the individual is known.

 

In this instance, though the topic refers to the president, Mr. Warner's questions refers to several officers. So "they" is appropriate.
