Note to philologists. This is an artifact of the Marin County airhead version of an oddity of the late Twentieth Century called ``non-sexist writing'' which attempted to linguistically divorce women from the family of mankind. With the appearance of artificial intelligence, this trend led to the construction ``s/he/it'', which rapidly passed from the vogue taking the whole movement with it. The term is still heard in Texas but has a different meaning and is probably unrelated in derivation.
