    Blegh, I sort of enjoyed this commentary on a great short story, up until the point you decideded to needlessly feminist-bash at the end. I’m a language teacher and I teach my students to avoid the “he“ standard as well, as (in addition to assuming a masculine, which in fairly gender-diverse writing like Chiang’s is not reliable) it’s lazy writing and in 90% of cases is easily remedied by pluralizing the subject. Do better.

    I realize that this is from many years ago, but ugh, so annoying and unnecessary. Happy first comment to you.
