i prefer rephrasing if possible. for example, LucidFlight’s sentence: “When we spoke, Sam said to come over later”. If rephrasing leads to even more awkward wording, I will use singular they/them. I have not been asked to use the odd pronouns xe/xim. It is regrettable that the singular, neuter pronoun has become the very epitome of dehumanizing, objectifying speech.
