SHIM

I always had a problem trying to refer to someone who's gender wasn't specific.  I'd always say "Him/Her" or "She/He".

And what's also bad is when you refer to a baby or a pet, but you don't know the gender - the option is always to say "It".

So i created a word to cover all of this  "Shim".

You can say Shim when you mean him or her or she or he - or it.

Shim works for me.
