    I still abide by the generic he that was taught into the 80s, so use of "his" is just fine.
    The generic use pf masculine pronouns was as common, even more common, than the plural until recent feminist demands to do otherwise.

    That would be "I hope the slug who has my Galaxy enjoys their new paperweight" if you don't know the gender of the thief.
    I would just call the thief "she" to make up for all the years of pronoun depravation.

    On a more historical level. English _did_ have a singular common pronoun. It just happened to be "he".
    And now people who refuse to recognize it are dooming everyone to not be able to read anything more than twenty or so years old. I strongly dislike ideologically based changes to language--especially if the ideology is contrary to reason and my beliefs.

    Agree, just phrased it a little differently.

    But "he" was masculine and generic. Only context would clarify. Meanwhile the feminine was specific, special. Being special wasn't enough for some...

    They should be well versed in recovering stolen devices found with the apps now.
    Yeah, they probably are-- our local police department is quite good and I probably could have gotten the phone back.

    I had seriously considered filing a report-- but concluded that the likely sequelae substantially outweighed the value of a low/mid QVC Samsung phone.

    Well, you didn't specify the device.

    But I look at the principle. And if they took yours, what else have they taken.

    All it takes is a report to black list it which you did. Good job. And nice story about the fireman you did well.
