MAN, I wish English had a gender-neutral personal pronoun that wasn't kludged together or some awkward invented thing that draws attention to itself. "Their" works in many situations, but not when you're trying to refer to a named individual of indeterminate gender. I could just use their name everywhere, but that draws attention to itself also, and practically screams "LOOK, THE AUTHOR'S AVOIDING SPECIFYING GENDER FOR THIS CHARACTER."

Meh.
