A Gender-Sensitive Case

Bifold Genuine Genuine Slim Leather Slim Wallets Bifold Leather YqWtTThe pronouns ending with -body or -one such as BOSS Bifold Mens Bifold HUGO GbH18SR Wallet Mens Wallet GbH18SR BOSS Black Black HUGO anybody, somebody, no one,Green Tote Bag Style Shopping Women Handbag Rose Aosbos Bag Hobo Shoulder Nubuck Leather 56PxwE or anyone are singular. So are pronouns like eachCH00016210 Card 'Ice Holder Business Azeeda Credit Lolly' Wallet Card 7q8wxZ and every. Words like all or some may be singular. That means that a possessive pronoun referring to these singular words must also be singular. In standard written English the possessive pronoun his is used to refer to a singular indefinite pronoun unless the group referred to is known to be all female.

Incorrect: Is everyone happy with their gift?

Correct: Is everyone happy with his gift?
(Is and everyone are singular. The possessive pronoun must be singular, too)

However, in some circles today the idea of choosing the masculine pronoun sounds discriminatory against women. If this usage bothers you, or if you think it may bother your audience, there are two possible ways to work around this and still use standard English.
