Look, I'm a huge animal lover planning to be a vet. If we knew the gender then maybe your concern would be valid but considering we don't, it's not. Most people refer to an animal as an it if they don't know the gender. If they automatically said he would you jump down their throat for being 'sexist' assuming it was a he too?
45 - that is actually incorrect. If you don't know the gender or aren't being specific to a gender you use "he or she." That's the grammatically correct way to do it. Look it up. If you don't believe me "It" refers to a gender less object.
#59 While you are correct that saying he or a she is grammatically correct, that is some SAT level grammar shit. To be honest, I think t's okay to be grammatically incorrect if it makes more sense. Saying "the rat the cat the dog chased killed ate the malt" is grammatically correct, but it doesn't seem like it makes sense. It means that the rat ate the malt, was killed by a cat, and then the cat was chased by a dog. Now that makes more sense. Like the Beatles said "she may be a lover but she ain't no dancer." I'm not going to correct the Beatles on their grammar; that song is amazing as fuck and I know what they mean.
Look I'm a huge animal person but it's really not an issue. No one knows the gender of the dog. It's not degrading in anyway just like when your pregnant and go ' I wonder if IT'S a boy or a girl'. Literally what you've said makes no sense whatsoever. I wonder if it's a male or female dog. Same shit.
Flew off or jumped? My dog loves to try and jump off the boat whenever we take her out
